Saoirse Ronan prefers tea to partying

Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan has described her “ideal” Saturday night.

The 18-year-old shot to fame with Atonement, earning her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress at the age of 13.

Despite going on to star in hits such as The Lovely Bones and Hanna, the Irish actress has kept her feet firmly on the ground and avoids the temptation to party.

“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 to the British edition of Vogue.

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

The young star has exciting projects coming up this year, including drama How I Live Now and science-fiction thriller The Host.

Despite becoming a familiar face in Hollywood, Saoirse likes to keep her family around when she’s working.

“My mam comes with me everywhere,” she smiled.

“I started out young so she was with me from the off. My dad usually comes as well.”

In the adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s novel, The Host, the pretty actress has some steamy scenes with co-star Max Irons.

Giggling, she admits it can be strange to get so intimate with a colleague.

“It was a bit like, ‘Hello Max, nice to meet you and now we’re playing tonsil tennis,’” she laughed.

When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
