Saoirse Ronan - Saoirse Ronan's Dad Checks Scripts

Saoirse Ronan's dad reads her scripts before her to check they aren't too explicit.

The 17-year-old star has received praise for the mature nature of her acting - appearing in films including 'Atonement' and 'The Lovely Bones' - but her father always makes sure he discusses any potential movie roles with her before she accepts an offer.

She explained: "My dad and I always read the scripts.

"Most of the time, he'll read it first - to see if there's anything in it that's a bit explicit. Then I'll read it afterwards and we'll discuss it."

Saoirse has proved a sensation in Hollywood, already gaining nominations for a BAFTA, a Golden Globe and an Oscar, but despite her early success, does not feel any pressure as she becomes a grown adult.

She added: "At the age I'm at, it's a tricky time to try and figure out which is the best project for me to do.

"I've never really felt like I was a child actor. Just an actor who happened to be quite young."
