The 23-year-old actress admitted she hasn't been all that lucky in love yet because she doesn't get the whole dating scene, but she let daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres try to find her ideal famous man in a game of 'Would You Rather?'

After having to pick between the likes of Harry Styles, Chance the Rapper and Bruno, she settled on the 'Locked Out of Heaven' singer by the end of a "very long" game.

When Ellen pointed out he had a girlfriend, Saoirse laughed: "Companionship is fine. Even just a friendship is fine. Even if we just email or have a correspondence."

It came as the host offered to help her out after she revealed her lack of experience in the world of dating.

The 'Brooklyn' star said: "I don't know how to date ... I don't date, I'm not into the whole 'let's go out for dinner.' "

Meanwhile, Saoirse recently revealed her mother watched her collect the Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy prize at the Golden Globes via FaceTime earlier this month.

Though her beloved parent couldn't join her at the Beverly Hilton hotel, modern technology meant Monica Ronan was able to see the moment via a video call.

Accepting the award, Saoirse said: "My mom's on FaceTime over there on someone's phone. Hi!"

Saoirse - who wore black in support of the Time's Up anti-harassment initiative - went on to thank "all of the women" in her life who she loves and who support her "every single day", again mentioning her mother, as well as her best friend Eileen, who was her date for the evening.

She added: "I just want to say how inspiring it's been to be in this room tonight."
