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.

“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.”
Vanity Fair recently had a feature on ‘On Chesil Beach’ along with a new portrait of Saoirse and Billy Howle. You can view it right in our gallery.
With On Chesil Beach, which will be in theaters next month, Saoirse Ronan sustains an unbroken streak of acting excellence that has encompassed The Grand Budapest Hotel, Brooklyn, and Lady Bird. The film is set in the narrowest sliver of historical time, the immediately pre-youthquake Britain of 1962, when, as Ian McEwan writes in the novella upon which the movie is based, “to be young was a social encumbrance . . . a faintly embarrassing condition for which marriage was the beginning of a cure.”
But the picture, directed by Dominic Cooke and co-starring Billy Howle, is tender toward its virginal newlywed protagonists rather than mocking and mean. “Satire creates distance. I wanted the reader, and now the viewer, to get right up close to them,” says McEwan, who handled the screenplay adaptation himself.
In bearing and appearance—”certainly beautiful, but in a sculpted, strong-boned way,” as the book has it—Ronan is uncannily right for the role of Florence Ponting, the violinist who takes the hand (but not willingly much else) of her groom, Edward Mayhew. “The physicality of Florence is so important, because there is so much that isn’t said,” Ronan explains. “And Ian writes with such love and understanding. I don’t think there are many films that have tackled this subject this way. Usually, it’s either a caricature, like American Pie, or overly sentimental.”
For Vanity Fair’s Hollywood 2016 issue, they have asked actresses to show off their “secret talent”. In this segment, Saoirse shows how she can make us the perfect cup of tea. Watch the adorable video below!
The 2016 Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue is here, and the cover features a variety of acclaimed, stunning actresses across multiple generations, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. All five of this year’s best-actress Oscar nominees—Jennifer Lawrence, Cate Blanchett, Saoirse Ronan, Brie Larson, and Charlotte Rampling — are featured, in addition to icons like Jane Fonda, Helen Mirren, Viola Davis, and Diane Keaton, up-and-comers like Alicia Vikander and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Oscar winners Rachel Weisz and Lupita Nyong’o.
The Hollywood Issue includes additional intimate portraits of these stars from Annie Leibovitz and tributes to all of their careers written by James Wolcott. The new issue of Vanity Fair is available on newsstands in New York and Los Angeles, and on the iPhone, Kindle, and other devices, on Thursday, February 4, and nationally on Monday, February 8.
Saoirse talked to Vanity Fair at Toronto International Film Festival this week about why she was drawn to the film ‘Brooklyn’ and how different she believes the story is from the ones that have previously been told. Watch it below.
