Colin Farrell had to explain the word 'arseholes' to Jane Fonda on Graham Norton last night

Moment of the evening by far.

IT WAS A legitimately A-list couch on Graham Norton last night with Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Bryan Cranston, Jane Fonda, Matt Lucas and Niall Horan all in the house.

There was a lot of chat about Kidman and Farrell’s new film The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and Cranston was in typically fine form.

But the moment of the night didn’t happen until Jane Fonda arrived out about halfway through the show

Graham brought up her recent Netflix film with Robert Redford called Our Souls At Night

“You have to be careful how you say it”

Fonda looked a bit bemused why the audience was laughing

Colin had to say it again and explain that “our souls” in Ireland sounds like something completely different

“Arseholes” had been said the most times in the history of The Graham Norton Show at this point.

“I’m not sure they audience tested that title”

Which just led to Colin on the couch pronouncing “our” very dramtically so there would be no confusion

She now knows forever the double meaning.

“Oh my god”

Colin’s last word on the matter:

You’re welcome Jane

This side of the Atlantic, that name is always going to spark some immature giggles
