I think it’s important that we have strong, female characters in movies now, which can really leave an impression on people - especially young people - and that they’re not ‘sexy’ or ‘cool.’
Listen, if there’s a character that has a birthmark in the shape of Mexico on her face, there’s no contest. It was always going to be Agatha for me. But I still couldn’t quite believe it when my agent called me and said that Wes Anderson wanted to send me the script to read.
I am always very passionate about making films that I am drawn to, ones that really strike a chord with me. I never want to make a film for any other reason.
Happy 20th Birthday, Saoirse Una Ronan!
Cinema is important - basically every art form comes to cinema. It involves music. Painting. Everything. It’s the closest we can come to life. A painting can only give you so much, I think. And music is very beautiful, but when they all come together… you’re really embracing everything. I don’t think some people realize, actually, how important it is. - Saoirse Ronan
