Scarlett Johansson is keen to meet a 72-year-old woman who was her spitting image 50 years ago.
Last week (ends23Apr17), a user on the content sharing website Reddit posted a photo of his grandmother, Geraldine, at the age of 22, and noted she was once looked strikingly similar to the Avengers star.
The image, which was viewed over two million times, caught Johansson’s attention, prompting her to send the woman’s grandson, denverjoe, a video message expressing her shock over the uncanny resemblance.
“This video is for grandma Geraldine,” Johansson says in the video. “Geraldine, I cannot tell you, 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 c**p.”
The 32-year-old has asked to meet the glamorous gran for a drink, inviting her to attend the upcoming premiere of her movie comedy Rough Night.
“I saw that you were ‘drunk as a skunk’ when taking that photo (on Reddit), and I would like to see your drunk face,” the Oscar nominee adds. “I want to share a drunk face with you. Let’s have a drink, Geraldine.”
Johansson also offered to cover Geraldine’s travel costs to and from the film screening, adding, “I’ll see you at the bar!”
After sharing the video on YouTube, denverjoe revealed his grandmother was “literally jaw-dropping dumbfounded” after watching Johansson’s invite to the June (17) event.
“We are so taking them up on their offer,” he added.
