A new interview with Saoirse and her “Mary Queen of Scots” co-star Margot Robbie has been published by The New York Times! The portrait released with it has been added to our gallery, and you can read the article below.

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Are Coming Into Their Power
The “Mary Queen of Scots” stars and former Oscar rivals are tired of being people-pleasers. “There’s a lot of power in saying no,” says Robbie.

When Josie Rourke made her pitch to direct “Mary Queen of Scots,” about the royal rivalry between the Scottish ruler Mary Stuart and the English Queen Elizabeth I, she suggested thinking of the movie as a renaissance version of “Heat.” Like that thriller, which cast Al Pacino and Robert De Niro on opposite sides of the law, “what the film needed was a really great scene for two women to play opposite each other,” Rourke said.

Much of “Mary Queen of Scots” (due Friday) builds to that moment when Mary and Elizabeth finally meet — a cinematic flourish, as historians believe the two communicated only by letter. The film’s scene is the sort of centerpiece that only works if you know the women playing it are formidably matched equals offscreen, too. In casting Margot Robbie as Elizabeth opposite Saoirse Ronan’s Mary, Rourke found a pair so well-matched that they even competed against each other for last season’s best actress Oscar.

From the moment she became queen of Scotland at 6 days old, the world never stopped scrutinizing Mary Stuart’s every move — or pitting her against Elizabeth I of England, the cousin whose throne she held a claim to by birth.

Executed at the age of 44, implicated in a plot to assassinate Elizabeth that historians debate to this day, it was her enemies who would write Mary’s legacy. So in the turbulent years of her controversial life, contemporaries wonder, who was the real woman known as Mary, Queen of Scots, and what led to her tragic undoing?

Put another way in director Josie Rourke’s forceful new biopic, “Mary Queen of Scots”: What if Mary and Elizabeth could’ve just sat down together and worked things out?

ELLE Australia has posted a new interview with Saoirse and Lupita Nyong’o on their website! The article is part of the promotion for Calvin Klein’s latest fragrance Women. You can read the article below, and visit our photo gallery to see the new image released with it.

When it comes to inspiring women, Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o fit the brief.

Actresses and activists, both have achieved incredible success, their roles in films such as Lady Bird (Ronan) and 12 Years A Slave (Nyong’o) garnering them serious accolades and respect within the industry—not to mention an Oscar nom. It seems fitting then, that when Raf Simons set out to find a face for his debut Calvin Klein fragrance—and the brand’s first perfume launch in 13 years—the designer tapped the pair to bring his scent to life.

Calvin Klein Women is an exploration of femininity. Described as a woody floral scent with notes of eucalyptus, orange, and cedarwood, the fragrance is inspired by the transmission of strength and inspiration from one woman to the next. Within the campaign video, Ronan and Nyong’o (who met for the first time while collaborating with Calvin Klein) each nominate the women they have been most inspired by. It’s a refreshingly empowering fragrance campaign for Calvin Klein and powerful debut for Simons.

Chronicles of Her founder and fellow CK girl Carmen Hamilton sat down with Ronan and Nyong’o to chat female role models and feminism in Hollywood.
