Saoirse Ronan on her decision to withdraw from the Barbie movie:  I was devastated.

Saoirse Ronan was slated to act alongside Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie in Greta Gerwig's forthcoming Barbie film.

Ronan was twice under Gerwig's direction in the critically acclaimed motion pictures Little Women and Lady Bird (2017). (2019).

A scheduling difficulty prevented her from appearing in the movie as planned, according to Ronan in a recent interview with People.

The actor said, "I reside in London, and they were [filming] there. Another Barbie was the entire persona Ronan was going to play. I was heartbroken that I couldn't.

Sadly, Ronan was occupied with filming The Outrun, a new drama from The Unforgivable filmmaker Nora Fingscheidtan about an alcoholic living on the Scottish Orkney Islands.

Ronan added that she’s since texted Robbie and Gerwig asking if there is any chance she can still appear in Barbie in some capacity. “I’m like, ‘If you’re doing any pick-up [shots], maybe I can just walk through the background?’” she said.

Ronan next appears in Tom George’s (This Country) debut, See How They Run, as a 1950s London police officer opposite Sam Rockwell.
