Ryan Gosling thinks Saoirse Ronan is 'Meryl Streep reborn'

Do you think he’s a big fan of her work? It’s hard to tell.

RYAN GOSLING HAS heaped praise on Saoirse Ronan, saying she’s a ‘genius’ and ‘Meryl Streep reborn’. Well now.

The La La Land actor cast Saoirse in his directorial debut Lost River in 2013, and was evidently quite impressed with her work.

When asked about Saoirse in a new interview with The Irish Sun on Sunday, the actor could not say enough good things about her:

She’s a genius. She made me a better actor, I think any actor she works with, there’s an elevation in their abilities, upping their game.
I felt like I was working with a master, 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 for being the best. Because she is the best.

Whew! Safe to say he thinks Saoirse is pretty good at acting, then. Ryan also said he is certain the pair will 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.

We’ll be holding you to that, Ryan. Give us a ring when you’re in town.
