Saoirse Ronan has revealed she was originally supposed to join Greta Gerwig’s summer hit Barbie as “weird Barbie”.
In the end, scheduling problems got in the way of the 29-year-old working with the American director for the third time, as she starred in 2017’s Lady Bird and the 2019 adaptation of Gerwig’s Little Women.
Irish actor Saoirse Ronan said that she had to work with Barbie in the film Saturday night Live Comedian Kate McKinnon as a “weird Barbie”.

Speaking to Variety, the Dubliner said: “I was definitely going to be a ‘Weird Barbie’.
“I don’t know how to take it, you know? I mean, I would have been with Kate McKinnon, it would have been cool.
“But yes, I worked with the costume designer Jacqueline Durran. After she made (the costumes), I was wondering who will I end up being?
“Because I had a scene, but never got to do it and I wasn’t in the movie… and she said, ‘Oh, obviously you’re going to be a very strange Barbie, Saoirse.’
Speaking about what her Barbie would have been like, Ronan said: “I think I would have been a very strange girl who talked to herself and always had her pet dog with her and she would just talk to the dog and No. Look at anyone.”
