Evangeline Lilly may have bitten off more than what she could chew when she told Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer that they are both GILFs.

Now, for those of us that have been on the internet far too long, terms like GILF are pretty common knowledge, but for 78-year-old Douglas and 64-year-old Pfeiffer, it was a term they had never been enlightened with before.

As per the Daily Mail, Lilly recalled the embarrassing moment during an episode of the British talk show The Jonathan Ross Show which is set to premiere this weekend.

Lilly admitted she very candidly - and also very crudely - told Douglas that she wanted to "f*** him."

"There was this day on set, we were doing a scene in a restaurant and we were in a waiting room, so they filmed the waiting room with extras and there were children," she recalled. "I turned to Michael and Michelle and I said, 'You know, you guys are real GILFs.'"

Understandably, the Ant-Man stars had no idea what Lilly was talking about.

Lilly went on: "Michael had no idea. He said, 'What's a GILF?' Instead of being cool about it, in front of a room full of children I went, 'It's a grandpa I'd like to f***.'"

Yikes.

"And then immediately realized I'd told Michael Douglas I'd like to f*** him, which is not what you should say in front of a bunch of kids, oops!" she said of the blunder.

Later on in the segment, she pulled it back by speaking of her respect of the actors, describing them both as "cool."

Lilly said: "I got to be in a scene with the three of them on my 42nd birthday. They're so cool. You don't want to meet your icons because you're afraid they're going to disappoint and the three of them are cooler than you think they are. They're amazing."

The superstar trio star alongside each other in Marvel's latest instalment, Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania.

The highly-anticipated movie sees Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne, along with Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, explore the Quantum Realm, where they interact with strange creatures and embark on an adventure that goes beyond the limits of what they thought was possible.

The Jonathan Ross Show episode is set to hit screens on Saturday February 25 at 9:40PM on ITV1 in the UK.
