Saoirse Ronan in 'Hanna'

Nominated for an Oscar at the age of 13 for 2007's Atonement, Irish actress Saoirse Ronan has always been mature beyond her years. That's probably why it's so easy to believe Saoirse, now 16, as the titular cold-blooded assassin in director Joe Wright's Hanna (in theaters April 8). Trained by her ex-CIA-agent dad (Eric Bana) to be a ruthless killer, the ever-resourceful Hanna treks across Europe on a solo mission, beating up hordes of grown men (and enemy operative Cate Blanchett) along the way... and proving that teenage girls truly are a handful.
