Hello everyone! Our gallery has been updated with two scans from the October issue of Empire magazine, which features an article about the movie Little Women, starred by Saoirse, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen. I’ve also added a still that Dani had posted on @saoirseronancom a while ago, so you might have seen it before.
Saoirse is on the cover of The 2019 Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue! She’s posing with actor Chadwick Boseman and her 3 times co-star Timothee Chalamet. Our gallery has been updated with the featured photoshoot – seeing as the videos on the website only have a few frames of Saoirse, we’ve uploaded the screen captures to the same album as the outtakes.
HOMETOWN: Dublin, Ireland FILMS: 24 MOST RECENTLY SEEN: Exploring doomed majesty in Mary Queen of Scots COMING ATTRACTION: Re-uniting with Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig for Little Women KNOWN FOR: Being equally empowered in a corset or a prom dress ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS: 3
“I hope that in the next 25 years of filmmaking cinema doesn’t end up completely disappearing and exist just on a laptop screen. I’d love it if we all went back to shooting film.”
Saoirse is on the August cover of VOGUE! This marks the beginning of the promotion for the film Mary, Queen of Scots, one most of us have been waiting for literally years. A brand new, stunning photoshoot by Jamie Hawkesworth was released along with the article on the magazine’s website. The images have been added to our gallery, and you can read Saoirse’s cover story below.
Saoirse Ronan is describing the aftermath of her first acting job. “I went into this melancholic state for a few weeks,” she tells me. “I remember sitting on the bed with Mam next to me, and I was like: ‘I’m never going to have that experience again.’ ” The community that had come together on set and developed real bonds had now permanently dispersed. “It was that thought: That exact crew will never work together again. Never.” The project was an Irish television drama called The Clinic. When she appeared on it, Ronan was nine years old.
Now 24, Ronan has come to meet me in a coastal Irish town on a sunny afternoon in May. Ireland is facing a referendum to repeal its ban on abortion, and lurid posters of fetuses are everywhere. Ronan recently appeared in a video supporting the reproductive rights campaign—a long-growing grassroots movement that finally succeeded in pressuring the government to hold a referendum—and everyone is talking about it. In the café where we pick up lunch, we fall into conversation with our server about the upcoming vote.
Saoirse, Laurie Metcalf and Greta Gerwig are on the cover of Entertainment Weekly‘s Oscars issue! Buy it here to read the complete article and their Academy Awards guide. You can read an excerpt below, and the featured photoshoot has been added to our photo gallery.
There’s just something about Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird. Audiences’ love affair with the coming-of-age tale began at the Telluride Film Festival, where attendees were first charmed by this sharp, vivid, witty, and poignant story of a teenage girl (Saoirse Ronan) who is restless to leave her family home in Sacramento, California, for something bigger and better. What that exactly is, she’s not sure, but she’s convinced that it’s happening just beyond her reach. Her clashes with her mother (Laurie Metcalf), her relationship with her father (Tracy Letts), her intense friendship with her best friend (Beanie Feldstein), and her crushes (Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet) are all achingly relatable.
The Academy certainly agrees — earlier this week, Lady Bird racked up five Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress for Ronan, and Best Supporting Actress for Metcalf. Gerwig’s screenplay got a nod and she became just the fifth woman in Oscar’s 90-year history to crack Best Director (for her solo directorial debut, no less).
“I felt it from the very beginning,” says Gerwig of the hard-to-put-your-finger-on-it magic that surrounds this film. “You start getting the feeling that the movie wants to exist. That sounds a little goofy, but that’s what it feels like.”
Entertainment Weekly sat down with Gerwig, Ronan, and Metcalf, where it quickly became clear the warm feelings that are so apparent in front of the camera, exist behind the scenes, too. “Don’t take this the wrong way,” Ronan says, turning to Gerwig. “But I don’t see you, like, as a female director. I just think of you as a great director. A great filmmaker. I think the reason why the set was run so well is that Greta’s a great leader.” Echoes Metcalf, “We trusted Greta so much. We knew [Gerwig] was looking for the heart of it, and that you’ve always got your eye on the big picture.”
Saoirse is on the cover of the January issue of W Magazine with Andrew Garfield. We have uploaded the cover and the following photo inside. It also comes with the Screen Test video we posted earlier this week. You can read the transcript below:
Saoirse and Greta Gerwig are on the 1st Variety cover of 2018! The magazine features an interview with the pair about Lady Bird, which is already on their website and you can read below.
Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan on How They Found the Voice of ‘Lady Bird’
Greta Gerwig is having coffee and a bowl of jasmine rice in a mostly empty SoHo restaurant on a frosty late afternoon in December. The day before, she was named best director by the National Board of Review, the first of many accolades that she, her star Saoirse Ronan and their movie “Lady Bird” will receive in the coming weeks. Gerwig is beaming, though you get the feeling that’s her natural state. Her short hair is blondish, with dark roots, and you can see an echo of a number of the characters she’s played — the ebullient falling-through-the-cracks dancer of “Frances Ha,” the Bowie-headed art punk of “20th Century Women” — in her large sun-dazed smile, her easy open laugh, her tossed-off intelligence.
Our gallery has been updated with digital scans from the latest issues of The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly. The first features an article about The Greatest Performances of 2017, in which our lovely Saoirse has been included, and the 2nd talks about Mary, Queen of Scots. Thanks to Luciana, from james-mcavoy.com, for sending the EW images our way!
