Saoirse Ronan: I'm scared I'll fail

Saoirse Ronan is scared she will lose her talent for acting and become “really bad” at her profession.

The 18-year-old starred in Atonement, which earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress at the age of 13.

Saoirse has since appeared in Hanna and The Lovely Bones, but constantly fears she’ll lose her talent.

“I always have this worry that I’m not going to be able to act anymore,” she confessed to Dazed & Confused magazine. “That I’m going to be really bad! With every film I’m thinking, ‘Well, that’s it, I’m not going to be able to do it again...’”

The Irish actress prefers to stay out of the public eye. She shared one particularly traumatic experience she suffered in the early stages of her career.

“I was at the premiere of the final Twilight film and I thought, ‘Jesus this is mad!’ It’s overwhelming,” she continued. "But you can stay away from it to a certain extent, choosing where you live and whether to go to every event under the sun.”

As Saoirse’s fame grows, she’s finding it harder to avoid attention. The red-haired beauty appears in the latest UK edition of Vogue magazine where she explained how she likes to keep her feet on the ground.

“My ideal Saturday night would be to watch a few films with a friend, erm, have some tea, maybe go out walking for a little while,” she confided.

“I like walking around cities at night-time. London, early in the morning or late at night. Or New York. Dublin.”
