Saoirse Ronan doesn't think she's famous. The 'Lady Bird' star may have been nominated for three Oscars and won a string of other awards but she still feels ''shocked'' whenever anyone recognises her.
She said: ''I still get completely shocked that anyone knows who I am...''But I'm not . . . famous. I just genuinely don't think I am. Selena Gomez is famous.''
The 24-year-old actress insists it's easy for her to ignore her celebrity because she never reads about herself.
She told Vogue magazine: ''If you're not aware of how often you're in a newspaper, then it's like it's not really happening.''
And Saoirse can't even bear to watch any of her movies because it makes her ''anxious''.
She said: ''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.''The 'Brooklyn' actress finds her work ''very intimate'' and has been the biggest constant in her life.
She said: ''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.''
And Saoirse believes acting has made her a ''better person''.
She explained: ''You want to be doing something in your life that wakes you up.
''There's something wonderful about doing the type of work that is a part of you, because you can give it everything you've got.
And it gives so much back to you as well. You become better. You become a better person.'' ——Contactmusic
