Saoirse Ronan cringes when she remembers the "vampy" look she went for while promoting The Lovely Bones.
The pretty 16-year-old actress has enjoyed immense success in Hollywood so far, having given outstanding performances in films such as Atonement, The Lovely Bones and Peter Weir’s latest movie The Way Back.
Saoirse loves fashion, although she regrets going for a seductive look during the promotion of The Lovely Bones in 2009. The Irish actress played lead character Susie Salmon in the film, and went for an extremely glamorous image for the movie’s premiere, displaying her slender figure in a slinky mini-dress.
“I did vamp it up there for a while, didn’t I?” she laughed.
The star now opts for a more natural, fresh-faced look, but at the time she couldn’t get enough of black kohl eyeliner. The teenager now looks back and regrets being so over-zealous with her application.
“I was going through a stage where I liked eye-liner and it became a bit ridiculous!” she told British newspaper The Times.
