Saoirse Ronan may be a global actress, but she admits she still gets “so anxious” when she sees herself on-screen.
The 24-year-old, who has starred in the likes of “Lady Bird” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel”, received her first Oscar nomination when she was just 13-years-old for her role in “Atonement”.
Despite being in the industry for years already, Ronan also insists that she still doesn’t see herself as someone who’s “famous.”
The actress says in the new issue of Vogue, “If you’re not aware of how often you’re in a newspaper, then it’s like it’s not really happening. I just get so anxious whenever I watch anything that I’m in.”
“I’m fine with the way I look now, but I wouldn’t necessarily be looking at photographs of myself all day. I don’t want to become too consumed by the image of myself.”
Ronan goes on to say that she still gets “completely shocked” when someone stops to ask her for a picture or an autograph.
She then admits she would actually rather do her job without the fame, telling the mag: “But I’m not… famous. I just genuinely don’t think I am. Selena Gomez is famous.”
Ronan’s candid chat also sees her open up about being in front of the camera from such an early age.
“It’s very intimate. There are certain moments where it feels like it’s just you and the lens. It’s something that has been a very stable, consistent thing in my life. The camera has been the thing that has stuck around the longest.”
