  • - Everyone was saying, "How do you pronounce her name?"

  • And it's "Sur-sha,"

  • but it's spelled S-A-O... - Yeah.

  • - I-R-S-E. - Yeah.

  • - Which makes no sense... - It makes no sense.

  • - That it's pronounced that way. - It's a ridiculous name.

  • - Is that a popular--do you know anyone else with that name?

  • - Um, I don't personally,

  • um, but there have been a few babies called Saoirse

  • in the last few years. - Because of you.

  • - Don't know why, but... - Yeah.

  • - But, no, it means freedom,

  • so it's a very kind of import--well,

  • it's an important meaning anywhere,

  • but especially in Ireland. It kind of holds a real...

  • - Yeah. - Importance for us.

  • - So, Dennis Quaid, at the Golden Globes...

  • - Oh, my God. - This was the nomination

  • and this is what he did with your name.

  • - [laughs]

  • - Best Performance by an Actress

  • in a Motion Picture-Drama:

  • Shesha Ronan,

  • "Brooklyn,"

  • [both laugh]

  • - Well? - So, I--yeah.

  • So, I heard, right?

  • I didn't know that the Globe nominations

  • were coming out that day, and I don't like to know

  • when any of these nominations are coming out

  • because you get really anxious and then you'll just never sleep

  • and you'll never have a life, so I didn't want to know,

  • and the day they came out

  • I was in Dublin

  • and I was getting my nails done.

  • Completely by accident, gold actually.

  • I was getting them painted gold. - Ah, had I had that answer.

  • - Yeah. So, I went to this place

  • that I go to called Tropical Popical

  • and I was getting my nails painted,

  • and I kept getting phone calls,

  • and my phone started blowing up and I was given out.

  • I was like, "Oh, Go"--I had just come back from doing press.

  • I only had a few days off.

  • I was like, "They won't leave me alone,"

  • you know, and I kept giving out bout Hollywood in general,

  • and eventually then I answered my phone

  • and I was told that I had been nominated for a Globe,

  • and I spent the next two hours,

  • you know, doing phoners in the corner of this nail salon

  • with, like, Justin Bieber playing in the background,

  • and it's called Tropical Popical

  • so there's palm trees everywhere and flamingos,

  • and you feel like you're in Ibiza or something

  • and you're just getting your nails done in Dublin.

  • - [laughs] - Um, so I'm, like,

  • in the corner drinking a little tea out of a coconut cup,

  • and I'm telling everyone how, you know, happy I am and

  • everything, and Bieber's playing in the background.

  • But everyone kept saying to me, "So, what about Dennis Quaid?

  • I mean, that was something else, wasn't it?"

  • And I hadn't seen the video, so I was kind of acting dumb.

  • I was like, "Yeah, Dennis. Dennis Quaid.

  • What a--what a guy he is"...

  • [laughter] And I had no idea

  • that my name had been completely butchered...

  • - Yeah. - On national television, so...

  • - Well, we learned so much about you in that story.

  • [laughter]

  • - My nail routine-- - So, I think you're gonna get

  • free nails next time you go there.

  • You've mentioned the name of it--Tropical Popical, right?

  • - Yeah...Tropical Popical. - Yeah, that's a great place...

  • - Keep that in. - And you'll probably get your

  • nails done for free now.

  • There's a lot of awards shows that you'll be going to.

  • I'm sure you'll be nominated for more awards.

  • So, there's--you always, like, what do I wear?

  • What do I wear? That's everybody's question.

  • - That's--yeah. - So, I got something for you...

  • - [laughs] - To wear.

  • So, it's how to pronounce your name.

  • - [laughs] - If you'll stand up.

  • - Oh, my God. - That--and if you--

  • all right. - It's so sparkly.

  • - Right, so... - So glamorous.

  • - It's got everything you need, and...

  • - It's got--I can't reach the champagne there.

  • - And then if you just turn around there.

  • [laughter] It's, uh...

  • - I would like to thank you... - Yep.

  • - Ellen, for this. - All right.

- Everyone was saying, "How do you pronounce her name?"
