Saoirse Ronan prefers tea to partying

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
