The first Trailer for How I Live Now was finally released, so I thought I should share it here so that we can all revel in how gorgeous Saoirse looks in it and how great the movie looks in general.

Saoirse Ronan has said that Ryan Gosling will be a "great" director because he is in tune with his work.
The Irish actress stars in his directorial debut - the fantasy noir How To Catch A Monster - alongside Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes and Matt Smith, which has started filming in Detroit, Michigan.
"I know he's going to be a great director because I've talked to him and I know his ideas," she said.
"He wrote the script, which is fantastic, and with each draft you can see it's really come on and you can see where he wants the story to go."
Saoirse, who is also continuing her successful streak with a leading role in Wes Anderson's upcoming film The Grand Budapest Hotel, is already a big fan of Ryan's work and the choices he has made in his career.
"I think you can tell by the choices he makes as an actor that he very much respects the story in the film and strong characters," she continued.
"He could have easily picked a bunch of blockbusters films over Blue Valentine and Drive but he didn't and because he's so great and was working with great people he made really great films and I think that's something that's important to him."

Saoirse Ronan has been talking about being linked to a role in Joss Whedon’s follow-up to The Avengers.
After the writer and director confirmed that both the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver would be joining the ensemble for the sequel, moviegoers have started to speculate who could play these roles.
These discussions have intensified after it was confirmed that Evan Peters would be joining X-Men: Days Of Future Past in the role of Quicksilver, whilst attention has now turned to Ronan.
Ronan has been able to talk about being linked with the character, and she stated, “I have heard about it and yes, I would,” when asked whether she would like to join in the fun alongside Robert Downey Jnr and Mark Ruffalo.
“Yeah, of course I would. I love Joss and I love those films. I love his handle on them and how he portrayed these kinds of superheroes. I think it’s very different from what anyone else has done. So yeah, I’d love to be in it.”

The big question concerning Saoirse Ronan – apart from how on earth one pronounces her first name (try rhyming it with "inertia") – has been when exactly she might cross the threshold into adult roles, and how. The Irish actor has only just turned 19, so it's hardly surprising she has spent her career playing children, though that rather under-represents the challenging nature of her parts to date.
Unusually for a young actor, she has achieved fame and acclaim without first passing through the brightly lit high-school corridors of the teen-movie genre. She was Oscar-nominated at the age of 13 for her otherworldly performance as Briony Tallis, the spiteful catalyst for catastrophe in Atonement; she was the murdered girl monitoring the hunt for her own killer in supernatural drama The Lovely Bones; she played a ruthless assassin in Hanna; and in The Host, a teenage science-fiction thriller from the pen of Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer, Ronan was called upon to give a double performance: as both a blank-faced victim of extra-terrestrial possession, and the indefatigable soul still trapped inside.
Given that she has technically never portrayed an adult on screen, Ronan is growing up in one colossal leap in her new film, Byzantium, an atmospheric chiller about a mother-daughter vampire team. Playing Eleanor the 200-year-old bloodsucker does dramatically raisethe average age of the roles on Ronan's CV, although she insists the secret was to approach her as the 16-year-old she appears to be on the outside. "I didn't really feel like I was playing an adult," she says in her gentle Irish lilt when we meet in a London hotel. She's wearing an emerald-green cardigan, and her fingernails are painted vivid electric-blue. Tissues and medication are spread out on the coffee table to help combat her cold. "Eleanor has been a teenager for 200 years," she points out. "But that's still what she is – a teenager. She's a very old soul. "( Read more...Collapse )

In our March “Steal of the Month” column, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan recalls her first experience on the red carpet, where, not only was the then thirteen-year-old one of the youngest actors ever to be nominated for an Oscar—for Joe Wright’s moving 2007 drama Atonement—but she was also making her debut in heels. “It takes three hours to walk it, so by the end my feet were killing me!” (She wore Alberta Ferretti sandals.) Ronan, now eighteen, has a more down-to-earth personal style. “I like wearing long, floaty dresses with brogues,” she says. “It takes a look that would otherwise be very girlie and throws the balance off a bit.” Inspired by the wiser-than-her-years actress

The gorgeous Ryan Gosling, star of “The Notebook” will soon make his directional debut in a movie starring our very own Saoirse Ronan. “How to Catch a Monster” will be released here next year.
Saoirse told 98FM: “I didn’t know the news had been released so I was telling people I couldn’t talk about it. But yeah I’m working with Ryan. I met him a few years when I was meant to be booking on something with him that didn’t work out but I know how lovely he is and one of our great friends is working on costume on it too so it’s great!”
So funny when asked by 98FM if she thinks Ryan is a ride, Saoirse laughed saying “I can’t say that about my future director. He’s my boss”.
