At just 19 years old, Saoirse Ronan already has a more diverse resume than many actresses three times her age. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for Atonement (at 13!), played a brutally-murdered teen in The Lovely Bones, and starred as a steely young assassin in Hanna. Off-screen, the Irish beauty’s style is as eclectic as her film roles. Equally polished and edgy, Saoirse glams up the red carpet with ease and grace—and just the right amount of swagger. This month, she stars alongside fellow style star Diane Kruger in sci-fi romance The Host, based on the book by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer. She took a few minutes out of her time stateside to talk favorite costumes, prissy dressing, and worshiping Tilda Swinton.

WWW: What does it mean to you when you get into costume for a film?
SR: I think it’s a really important part of building a character. To have time with the costume designer and director before you begin shooting is wonderful. Sometimes you’re building a character from outside in, and you take in the physicality of the person you’re playing through your clothes. They’re a big part of who the person is.

WWW: What has been your favorite movie wardrobe so far?
SR: My favorite was on How I Live Now. I was playing a girl from New York City with bleached blonde hair and piercings, and as soon as I put my leather jacket and creepers on I really felt like I could have an attitude.

I always have a special place in my heart for the yellow bell-bottoms that I wore for The Lovely Bones, but I wouldn’t wear that stuff out.

WWW: Describe your personal style.
SR: Very casual, very low key. Not prissy. Always something that has a bit of an edge.

WWW: What’s something you’d never wear?
SR: I’m not into really pretty pink things. When I was younger, I went shopping with my mum, and she brought this pink dress over, and it had these big puffy sleeves. I was only two, but I said: No, no, no! It’s too prettiful!

WWW: What style risk would you like to take?
SR: I’d love to wear Doc Martens on a red carpet.

Exclusive Interview with JustJared

JJ caught up with Saoirse to get the scoop on what it was like working with Max Irons, as well as their co-stars Diane Kruger and Jake Abel. Read the complete interview below!

JustJared.com: What was your favorite off-screen moment while shooting.
Saoirse Ronan: Max and I went to have dance lessons for the swing dance montage scene that we have. And we went to see this guy, I think his name’s Ralph or Ray, or something like that. And he was just so cool…but he was quite small. And he was a great guy, so we had really fun times doing that.

JJ: Did both of you pick it up at the same time or was one a better dancer than the other?
SR: I was a better dancer! I picked it up before Max did. Max needed to just relax a little bit. And I kept taking the lead, which I always do anyways whenever I dance.

JJ: I thought he said he was a break dancer when he was younger.
SR: Yea, he did this break dance Grease mix tape at a disco when he was like ten years old. He was like ‘Oh yea, I won this dance competition once!’ And we were like ‘Oh my God, when was that and what did you do and stuff?’ ‘I was like ten years old at a camp! I don’t know if anyone else danced’ I wonder if it’s on Youtube!
