Now she has landed herself on the cover of none other than Vogue Magazine and looks naturally stunning, as always.

The 24-year-old spoke about fame and how she still "completely shocked" that anyone knows who she is.

Despite having three Oscar nominations under her belt, the Carlow-born actress always considers Ireland home.

"Ireland is smaller than England, and I love it for that," she said.

"I feel most at home and at peace when I’m in the country. Though I like being in London too. There’s an anonymity. You can disappear into the human flow.”

"I still get completely shocked that anyone knows who I am. But I’m not... famous. I just genuinely don’t think I am. Selena Gomez is famous.”

Her cover look is from Prada's AW18 collection and she wears barely there make-up and carries the ethereal vibe she embodies so naturally.
