Sally Field Plays Matchmaker For Her Son With Olympic Figure Skater Adam Rippon!
American actress Sally Field is doing everything she can to help her son along in the love stakes. In fact some may say a bit ‘too’ much!
When Field discovered her 30 year old son Sam Greisman had a crush on Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon she did what every great wing-man would and let Rippon know exactly how her son felt.
Rippon, who is currently America’s sweetheart thanks to his stellar performances during the 2018 Winter Olympics in Korea, is also one of the first openly gay American athletes to compete at a Winter Games.
Field’s son has not been shy on Twitter about his crush on Rippon and has posted many messages declaring his ‘love’ and admiration for the talented athlete.
“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,” he wrote. “Glad so many people liked this, but if you could slide it into Adam’s DMs that would be great too.”

As soon as Field caught wind, she texted her son some advice on how to land his “Olympic crush” — a conversation Greisman promptly tweeted.
“Sam… he’s insanely pretty. Find a way,” read the screenshot from Field, with the caption, “Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush.”
Not content with just giving out advice, Field then went and tagged Rippon, 28, in Greisman’s tweet.
“Yikes,” Greisman wrote in response.
No word yet from either on how successful mum’s attempts at matchmaking have gone!Ten points for effort though Sally!
