  • Ellen Degeneres teaches us how to pronounce Saoirse Ronan


    06 Jan 2016

    It may regularly be in bright lights, but Saoirse Ronan's name still confuses the masses when it comes to pronounciation, right? Luckily, Ellen DeGeneres has cleared the problem up in the way only she knows how.

    Currently on the press tour for her film Brooklyn, 21-year-old Ronan dropped by The Ellen Show and was presented with one of DeGeneres' special gifts... a huge wearable sign that read "my name is Sur-Sha" complete with champagne and snacks for the impending award season.

    Saoirse Ronan is here tomorrow! And she rhymes with inertia.

    Ryan Gosling famously explained how to say her name while presenting her with the New Hollywood Award at the Hollywood Film Awards back in November - "It's Ser-sha, like inertia" - but perhaps we just needed the reinforcement from Ellen, hey?

    With Ronan's new gift, there's no chance the reporters will get her name wrong on the Golden Globes' carpet this weekend. The actress is nominated for Brooklyn.
