The one phrase every Aussie says that nobody says anywhere else in the world: ‘We are all guilty of it’
- An Aussie podcast host revealed the one phrase only Australians use in the world
- Tiffany shared that no one else uses ‘too easy’ in their everyday vocabulary
- The Melbourne woman claimed that Americans often do not understand her
- The phrase is Angelina Jolie’s favourite local lingo she picked up while filming
An Australian woman shared the one phrase all Aussies say that is ‘practically unheard of’ in the rest of the world – but it’s a Hollywood starlet’s absolute favourite.
Tiffany Krylov, from Melbourne, posted a TikTok for her 175,000 followers explaining that the common phrase – ‘too easy’ – was unique to Australia.
But Angelina Jolie famously picked the phrase up while filming in Sydney in 2014, and it has since slipped into her day-to-day vernacular.
‘This is truly how to speak like an Australian – my American friend pointed this out and now I can’t unhear it,’ Tiffany said.

‘Australians are chill, nothing is a bother to us,’ she said. ‘We always say things like ‘no worries’ or ‘no wukkas’ because we’re so easygoing.’
The podcast host added, ‘But something we tend to say when someone asks us for something is ‘too easy’ or just any variation of the word.’
Tiffany herself says ‘easily done’ when someone askes her for a favour.
‘It is everywhere – especially hospitality settings, that’s where you hear it the most,’ she said. ‘If you ask for something, they’ll often say ‘too easy’ or something similar.’
‘I love it because it is accommodating but it’s also a brag because we know we’re the best!’ joked the TikToker.

Angelina Jolie also claimed that ‘no worries’ was second on her list after ‘too easy’ – as it is ‘always a great thing to hear.’
The A-lister picked up some of the local lingo on her trip and fawned over the Australian way of life.
‘When you’re in the middle of 200 extras and there’s a lot to do … in a very very stressful shoot and you ask, ‘Can we do this?’ and they say, ‘No worries’ – that’s the best.’

Many Aussies admitted to not realising how unique the phrase truly was.
‘I got questioned by American friends years ago about ‘easy as’ they were like – ‘Easy as what? What’s so easy?’ when I tried to use it,’ said one man.
‘It’s just so common here – you don’t realise it’s odd for foreigners!’
