Lady Bird

A post shared by Saoirse Ronan (@ronan.saoirse) on

While she was perched on the famous white couch the host asked her about her win at the golden globes and her distinctive Irish accent, the topic of dating came up.

“I don’t know how to date,” Ronan claimed.

“I don’t date. I’m not into the whole ‘Let’s go out to dinner.’ I wouldn’t know what to do!”

After DeGeneres’ initial teasing she decided to offer her matchmaking skills in the form of the game, Would you rather’.

She was first faced with the choice between her Ladybird co-star Timothée Chalamet and Colin Farrell, which she found tricky.

Things get easier, however, when Drake pops up on the screen.

’Saoirse and Bruno’ has a nice ring to it don’t you think.

If children are confident in interacting with others it takes away so much stress and social anxiety for them. Not too long ago, my daughter Joan and I were out with friends at a restaurant and we wanted extra water and a few other bits and Joan volunteered to go up and ask the waiter for them.
