Ryan Gosling on Saoirse Ronan: 'She's like the new Meryl Streep'

Hear, hear!

Ryan Gosling has practically gushed about Saoirse Ronan in his latest interview, and we can't get enough of it.


Speaking to The Irish Sun on Sunday, the actor said that she inspired him to be better, and there might even be a trip to Ireland down the line.

“She’s a genius. She’s a master. She made me a better actor, I think any actor she works with, there’s an elevation in their abilities, upping their game."

Ryan worked with the Irish actress on his directorial debut, Lost River back in 2014.

“I felt like I was working with a master," he said, "like someone from the Golden Age. Someone superior to my skills as an actor in every way. She’s Meryl reborn.”

“Well actually, she’s Saoirse, that name has the same recognition like Meryl (Streep) for being the best. Because she is the best."

“So absolutely, certainly, 100 per cent, we are going to work together again, I look forward to it. I don’t know when that will be, that is one busy actor."


“But I know she wants to bring me to Ireland, I’m fully on board,” he added.

We're sure he'll find more than a few fans of his here.
