Saoirse Ronan (pronounced “Sir-sha”) first came to our attention as conniving young Briony Tallis in the amazing 2007 film adaptation of “Atonement.” She followed that up by appearing as murder victim Susie in “The Lovely Bones” and as the titular bad-ass young assassin in “Hanna.” For an 18-year-old, she’s certainly accomplished a lot.
Her latest film is “The Host,” a sci-fi thriller about an alien invasion. Saoirse plays Melanie Stryder, a young woman whose body has been invaded by an alien “soul,” who must find and protect her loved ones. In short, we’re seeing it.
Above, we take a look back at some of Saoirse’s best fashion moments.
Did you know that, every now and then, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer writes about non-vampires? Last year, she released “The Host,” which was billed as her first adult novel, though it apparently has about the same set of readers. And while it’s not about vamps, there is still some parasitic feasting on pretty girls, this time by an alien species that is romantically overwhelmed by said girls’ capacity for emotion. The book didn’t get nearly as much play as anything “Twilight”-related, but that all may change now that “The Host” is being turned into a movie. Keep reading »
Inevitable, right? Stephenie Meyer, the Twilight scribe, designed three tee shirts and skateboards, based on her first novel, The Host , for Hobo Skate Company. (Who knew she was a sk8er gurl?) Generally, we’re so over celeb/model/everyone-and-their-dog clothing designers doing their own lines, but at least Meyer is using her fame for good, not evil, by teaming up with a company that’ll donate some of the proceeds to charity. Hobo Skate Company will give a portion of their sales of the $25 tees and $50 boards to the Hobo Foundation (Wait, wtf is up with that name!?–Editor] to support homeless families. Honestly, they’re underwhelming—the three designs are “X-Ray,” “The Cave,” and “Body & Soul.” We think she should stick to writing vampire erotica light, but tweeny Twilight obsessives will probably love anything Meyer does. And, hey, at least it’s not a handbag line. [MTV] Keep reading »
