Sally Fields’s son Sam Greisman’s twitter thirst was slightly quenched after his attempts at flirting with Olympic skater Adam Rippon resulted in his mother’s helpful intervention.

Sam makes no bones about his Olympic crush and through a series of tweets tried to grab Rippon’s attention.

“Gonna need a gif of @Adaripp saying he just wants to focus on being America’s Sweetheart for my daily use. Please and thank you.  Also marry me Adam," he tweeted.


“I hate being earnest but an openly, “non-passing”, sassy, beautiful gay 20-something daring America not to love him and becoming the sweetheart of the Olympic Games is very moving to me.”

Although moved by people’s response, Sam had another request:

“Glad so many people liked this, but if you could slide it into Adam's DMs that would be great too.”

That’s when Sam got a text from his Oscar-winning mother which he shared in part:

Wrote Field: “Sam…he’s insanely pretty. Find a way…” Once Sam posted that tweet his mother tagged Adam.

The skater visited the offices of BuzzFeed in PyeongChang, and upon hearing of the Field’s attempts at matchmaking said, “SALLY! She BOLD! Sam, your mom – I admire her. And I’m sure one day we’re going to meet! So, thanks mom.”

Sally also spoke to BuzzFeed about her good-natured meddling:

"Sam was mortified. I have to bud out now..but I would like to see Adam in the family."
