Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has revealed that she's planning on taking some time out from the movie industry in the near future.

Currently on the promotional trail for Lady Bird, a movie for which she has received a Golden Globe nomination, the 23-year-old has told the Irish Independent about her plans to enjoy life more in between movie projects. 

She said: 

"I've always loved acting so much but it's all I've ever known. And I had a panic recently where I thought I've got to go do other things.

"I've got to go travel. I even find when I'm working, I can't read, I can't watch TV, I can't do anything. I guess I can listen to podcasts, but I can't really be stimulated by anything other than the projects. Your world becomes so small."

Lady Bird is Ronan's 21st performance in a feature film while her next roles will be in 2018's The Seagull and Mary Queen Of Scots.
