Saoirse Ronan sang praises of Ryan Gosling to make people understand the correct pronunciation of her Irish name (‘Ser-sha’).
While presenting Ronan with an award during Hollywood Film Awards in November, Gosling said, “It’s Ser-sha, like inertia”, and suddenly, people started pronouncing her name correctly, reported People magazine.
“Someone sent me a photo two weeks later of a cinema in Minnesota, and on the sign in the front it said ‘Brooklyn’ and then underneath it said, ‘Ser-sha, Like Inertia.’ I couldn’t believe it! They actually put it on the front of the cinema, so the power of Ryan Gosling is stronger than anything else,” Ronan said.
“He’s like, Jesus or something, like a blond Canadian Jesus,” she added.
