IRISH mammies are always getting themselves into awkward situations, and Saoirse Ronan's mam is no different.
Last night, Saoirse appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote her Oscar-tipped new film Ladybird.
Speaking about the two previous occasions when she attended the Academy Awards, the 23-year-old recalled her mother experiencing an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction with George Clooney when she was just 13.
It could've gone worse and, to be fair, it was all George's fault.
"My mam had this dress that had a long train, and George Clooney was stood on the train, and he didn’t realise," Saoirse said.
"My mam had never been on the red carpet before, and she’s in the background like 'Excuse me! George! Excuse me!' and she kept tapping him on the shoulder and he won’t turn around. It got more and more aggressive and she’s like 'GEORGE!'
Eventually, George sauntered off without realising what he'd done. Saoirse’s mam ran over to her to tell her the story.
“You’ll never believe what George Clooney just did to me!"
