Like many proud people with Irish names, Saoirse Ronan spends her days outside of Ireland teaching people how to pronounce it.

Dennis Quaid famously got it wrong during the Golden Globes nominations last year when he called her 'Sheesha Ronan'.

However, Irish people are not the only people in the world with names that are difficult to pronounce, and Popsugar put the Carlow actress to the test with a list of some of the biggest tongue-twisters in the business.

She kicks off by revealing that some people call her 'Soarsay' or 'Sheershay' or 'Smearshay' before tackling a list of names including Joe Manganiello, Gal Gadot, Mia Wasikowska, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and more.

She's pretty good at them, but gets one or two hilariously wrong...
