Sally Field is playing matchmaker and is trying to set up her son with US Olympic figure skater, Adam Rippon.
Team USA’s Adam Rippon may have caught actress Sally Field’s eye as she tuned in to the Olympic figure skating events in Pyeongchang, South Korea. We don’t blame Sally for thinking Rippon would be a perfect match for her son, but she went and took it a step further by trying to hook them up.
This all began with a text message sent from Field to her son, Sam Greisman. According to Entertainment Weekly, Greisman shared the text message on his Twitter account on Friday night, February 16, with some context that it was about his “Olympic crush.” Although he didn’t specify any names, we’re sure he was referencing Adam Rippon based on Field’s description of the athlete.
The Forrest Gump actress wrote, “Sam… he’s insanely pretty. Find a way.” Greisman then posted the screenshot message captioned, “Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush.” The 71-year-old actress then took her matchmaking magic to her own account by sharing her son's tweet.
She didn’t stop there! Field's also tagged Olympic skater Rippon in her tweet, essentially confirming him as Greisman’s Olympic crush. I think we can all agree this turned into a very embarrassing story, in the most loving and adorable way. Greisman’s response to his mother's tweet was a simple, “Yikes.” and we’d probably have the same reaction, too. Although Rippon has yet to personally respond to any of the tweets, it hasn’t stopped Twitter users from loving every single second of this.
One user, Lesli Margherita, posted, “Sally Field trying to set up her son with Adam Rippon is my fave thing today.” Adina Porter, another Twitter user chimed in saying, “Such a mom thing! I’m totally invested in this possible relationship. Please keep us posted,” and so are we!
Most people showed excitement for the endearing attempt and praised Field for her support for the LGBTQ+ community. We’d love for Field’s master mind work to come to life, and will have our eyes out for any word from Adam Rippon.
