The 21-year-old actress is nominated for Best Actress for her role in Brooklyn.
Saoirse also covers the latest issue of New York Magazine in which she opens up about feeling the pressures of Hollywood.
“It’s funny, I didn’t really feel [some of the pressures of Hollywood] when I was younger,” Saoirse told the mag. “I feel it a bit now, and I could see a change when Hanna came out, because it was the first sort of commercial success I’d had, apart from Atonement, and I was very young then — a lot of that went over my head. Part of it was that I’d grown up outside L.A., so I wasn’t exposed to the competitive side of that world, where you feel like you have to do a thousand and one things in order to keep up with everyone else.”

Saoirse Ronan heads straight to her waiting ride after arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon (January 29).
The 21-year-old Irish actress is in town for this weekend’s 2016 SAG Awards, where she’s up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for Brooklyn.
Speaking with The National, Saoirse opened up about the impact of the story of the movie.
“Initially, I felt like it was an exclusively Irish story and in retrospect, I feel like now it’s really something that relates to anyone – anyone who has left home and anyone who has dealt with the loss and grief of childhood, once you’ve left home.”
Saoirse added, “So, yeah, the film gained all these new layers from day-to-day and it became more and more meaningful for me.”

The 21-year-old actress spoke to E! News after nabbing an Oscar nomination for her role in the much talked about film.
“I have to go to T.J. Maxx later,” she dished on how she was going to celebrate. “Mom [Monica] and I need to go out, and I need to get an electric kettle for my new apartment and some cushions. So I’ll probably do that—that’s how I’m going to celebrate!”
Saoirse added that she’ll be taking her mom with her to the awards, “It’s never not going to be my mom. Even when I’m married, it’s still going to be mom—if I get married.”
FYI: Saoirse wore a Laura Basci ensemble with Christian Louboutin heels and David Webb jewels.
