* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She could've become a blockbuster actress, but didn't get a number of roles when auditioning, or simply turned them down. In particular, she's flirted with joining a franchise many times but has yet to pull the trigger.

** She was always the first actress in mind for Eilis in ''Film/{{Brooklyn}}'' but was thought to be too young when the project was first greenlit - and Creator/RooneyMara was the original choice for Eilis. By the time the film actually got made, Saoirse was now old enough to play her.

** Creator/GretaGerwig directed Ronan in ''Lady Bird'' and ''Little Women''.



** Gerwig has even discussed this in [[https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/greta-gerwig-saoirse-ronan-what-makes-unique-collaboration-work-1273960 an interview]]:
--->'''Gerwig:''' I could tell that Wes was not 100 percent thrilled that I was working with her. He loves her. I remember I asked Wes about Saoirse. He read the script and was like, "Saoirse can do anything. She can do absolutely anything." I may be projecting, but I think he might’ve been a little jealous because he’s trying to take her back. (Laughter.) We're in a round robin with Joe Wright.

* ContractualPurity: Her parents would only allow her to play Susie in ''Film/TheLovelyBones'' if the book's graphic rape scene wasn't included in the film. Besides that, she has never had much of a family friendly image, shockingly enough. Films like ''Film/ICouldNeverBeYourWoman'', ''{{Literature/Atonement}}'', ''Film/TheWayBack'' and ''{{Film/Hanna}}'' helped avoid this. The only remotely family friendly project she did as a child star was ''Film/CityOfEmber''.
