Sally Field appears to be gunning for a new accolade: best supporting mom.
The Academy Award-winning actress is playing matchmaker between Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon and her son on Twitter.
The “Forrest Gump” star tweeted at the 28-year-old bronze medalist on Friday after her son, Sam Greisman, tweeted that his mom was giving “some really helpful advice ... on how to deal with my Olympic crush.”
Greisman shared a screenshot on Friday, apparently showing a conversation between him and his mom. Fields encouraged him: “Sam... he’s insanely pretty. Find a way..”

Greisman, 30, has previously professed his affection and admiration for Rippon, who was the first openly gay American man to qualify for the Olympic Games.
In a Thursday post, Greisman, a film writer and director, praised Rippon as “sassy, beautiful” and the “sweetheart of the Olympic games.” In another, he got right down to it, tweeting: “marry me Adam.”
“Yikes,” Greisman responded.
There’s no word yet on Rippon’s response, but we can totally understand if he’s a bit busy.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misspelled the title of the film “Forrest Gump.”
