What do you do when your grandmother is a dead ringer for one of Hollywood’s most beautiful stars? You post her picture on the internet, of course!
That’s exactly what Reddit user Denverjoel did when he found out that his grandmother Geraldine looked very much like Scarlett Johansson when she was younger.
The picture he posted quickly went viral and soon enough, even reached Johansson herself. She saw the viral old photo and could not believe the uncanny resemblance between her and Geraldine. Now she wants to meet her doppelganger in person to take a closer look.
The actress made a video for Grandma Geraldine. “I have been absolutely inundated with emails and messages about how much we look alike, and I had to look at the photo myself. Holy crap!” says Johansson. “I want to meet you in person.”
It doesn’t end there.
“I saw that you were, quote, ‘drunk as a skunk’ when taking that photo, and I would like to see your drunk face,” the actress went on to say. “I want to share a drunk face with you. Let’s have a drink, Geraldine.”
Johnasson also invited Geraldine to see her upcoming comedy Rough Night, a movie about five college friends who reunite ten years later for a wild bachelorette weekend where everything goes wrong.
“Do you want to come see Rough Night with me? Be my guest,” she asked. “We’re a bunch of partying girls so it’s a good running theme, and I’ll cover all your hidden costs. I’ll see you at the bar. Be there or be square.
Geraldine already agreed to take Johansson up on her offer. We’re sure those gals are gonna have fun.
