Sally Field tries to set her son up with Olympian Adam Rippon

Learned behavior 1988 Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano has also spoken out to disclose that male eating disorders within the sport are nothing new

When Sam tweeted a screen-grab of a text conversation he had with her about his attraction to Olympian Adam Rippon, she took matters into her own hands. He also helped the USA men's team to a bronze medal in the free skate event earlier this week. "Sam... he's insanely pretty".

Rippon, the fist openly gay figure skater to compete at the Olympics, quickly became a fan favorite of the Winter Games as he performed to music by Coldplay (and, back in December, to Rihanna), attributed his athletic prowess to "witchcraft", and threw shade at Vice President Mike Pence.

Greisman screenshotted and shared the text from his mom on Twitter, captioning the shot, "Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush".

Ever so helpful, Field, 71, quoted the tweeted and mentioned Rippon's Twitter handle to get things moving.

"I was recently asked in an interview what it's like to be a gay athlete in sports", the skater tweeted in December.

Rippon says some of his greatest moments at the Olympics were skating three clean programs in the competition and coming away with a bronze medal in the team event.

Sally and her first ex-husband Steven Craig share 48-year-old novelist Peter Craig and 45-year-old screenwriter Eli Craig.

Greisman's response to his mom publicly meddling in his love life is summed up in one succinct word: "Yikes". And Field being the well, cool mom she is, has embarked on a mission to make the date happen.
