The 'Lady Bird' actress decided to take her mother to watch her latest movie - which has landed her an Oscar nominated in the Best Actress thanks to her acclaimed performance - but was brought back down to earth thanks to the quiet cinema screen.

Speaking on Friday night's (09.02.18) episode of 'The Graham Norton Show', she told the host: "My mam is very proud of me and I wanted her to see the film as part of a real audience so we went to an afternoon performance in LA.

"I thought it would be sold out and warned her to keep her head down so we weren't recognised. When we got in there, there were six other people... all on their phones! No one was interested in us at all!"

The film follows outspoken teenager Christine (Ronan) who must navigate a loving but turbulent relationship with her strong-willed mother over the course of an eventful and poignant senior year of high school.

In order to get back into the mind of a 17-year-old girl Ronan, 23, revealed she watched a lot of TV shows based around teenage characters.

She said: "I watched a lot of 'Saved by the Bell' and 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch'."
