  • Quotes

    • Saoirse: I'd like to be known as an actress who does films that make you think about life and how things are in the world.

    • Saoirse: If I hadn't doing acting, I like arts. I would've liked to be an artist or maybe a writer. I like to write stories, which I suppose is like scriptwriting really. I prefer the creative stuff to the logical stuff – like maths!

    • Saoirse: Acting is one of these things that I can't really describe – it's just like, why do you love your mum and dad? You know, you just do.

    • Saoirse: (on where she goes to school) It's kind of like a private school, but it's not a posh school, if you know what I mean. We don't wear like gold buttons on our uniforms or tiaras or anything like that.

    • Saoirse: Fame shouldn't really matter... The hair and makeup are fun, but nothing compared to the excitement of making a movie. That's how I feel.

    • Saoirse: When I did Atonement, I knew I want to do this for the rest of my life, it's kind of like a drug: Once you start, you can't stop.

    • Saoirse: (on Vanessa Redgrave and Romola Garai following how she acted out the character Briony in "Atonement") Yeah, kind of, I suppose. I mean, I don't know whether I taught Vanessa Redgrave. I don't want to say that. But yeah, I suppose I kind of set Briony up and then they followed me.

    • Saoirse: This is what I try to do with everything - is just be the person. Be the person I'm playing. That's what acting is. You're pretending to be someone else.

    • Saoirse: I like books that are exciting and that make you think about things as well. I like things that have a twist – like "Atonement", which I haven't read obviously, as I'm a bit young.

    • Saoirse: (on acting) I think, until you experience it and until you actually do it, then you don't know that you're interested in it. That's definitely what it was like for me, anyway.

    • Saoirse: I think that when you're an actress, you have to think about what kind of a role model you're going to be. I hope that I'm a good role model for young girls. I'm not going to, if people still want me in their movies, I don't want to be one of these girls who goes around partying every night and is in rehab. I don't want to do that.
