Saoirse Ronan celebrated her third Oscar nomination in a very innocent, Irish way

The actress called herself an old woman, and we'd be inclined to agree...

Saoirse Ronan has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Lady Bird.

At just 23-years-old, this is the star’s third nomination at the award show.

While some of the other nominees were seen popping bottles of champagne and partying, Saoirse opted for a more laid back celebration.

The Carlow native’s friend Scarlett Curtis shared a photo of a very chilled out Saoirse with a cake in front of her.

But on closer inspection, the cake in question appears to actually be classic brown bread and jam, she also has a cup of tea for good measure.

The bread featured a big 3-shaped candle to mark the number of nominations she’s scored.

Scarlett captioned the pic: “Proud friend. Proud woman. Lady Bird movie.”

Saoirse recently spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about how she is not exactly young at heart.

After taking a game of Would You Rather way too seriously, Ellen joked that she felt like she was “talking to a 70-year-old woman.”

Saoirse added, “I say all the time I’m like a 45-year-old woman!”

Speaking about her nomination this week she said: “To have been a part of a film like Lady Bird was a true privilege and I am incredibly grateful to the Academy for recognising this wonderful story about the beauty and strength of women.”

She added: “I am especially thrilled to share this moment with Laurie Metcalf and our leader and director Greta Gerwig, who, like Lady Bird, is an incredible woman and a dear friend.”

The Academy Awards take place on March 4.
