Saoirse Ronan Calls Fellow Oscar Nominee Timothee Chalamet Something You Wouldn't Even Expect

Saoirse Ronan Calls Fellow Oscar Nominee Timothee Chalamet Something You Wouldn't Even Expect

We’ve cleared up how you pronounce Saoirse Ronan‘s name a while ago, and we just did the same with Timothee Chalamet‘s name, too — but it turns out that Saoirse has an entirely different name for him.

The two actors, who are both up for Best Actor and Actress in a Leading Role tonight at the 2018 Academy Awards, had a joint interview a while back with the NY Times, where Saoirse revealed that she calls him Pony!

“Want to know what I call him?” Saoirse asked rhetorically. “‘Pony’, because he’ll come up to Greta [Gerwig, director of Lady Bird] and me and nuzzle us.”

She added, “It’s quite disarming. My Pretty Pony!”

While Timothee also starred in Lady Bird with Saroise, he’s nominated for Call Me By Your Name.

This marks Saoirse‘s third Oscar nomination, following Atonement in 2008 and Brooklyn in 2016.

Make sure to watch the Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, at 8pm EST/5pm PST on ABC.
