It’s said that everyone has a twin somewhere out in the world and this proves it! Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson was blown away recently when her email and social media accounts were inundated with friends sending her the same image over and over again of her 72- year old twin.
This all stems from a Reddit user by the name of denverjoe, who posted an image of his grandmother online with the caption, “My grandma looked like Scarlett Johansson when she was younger.” Later he added, “Just posted this on there. It was in 1967 at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, OK. I called her and she said, ‘Oh s**t, that picture? I was drunk as a skunk!’”
I’ll admit, the resemblance is uncanny. Grandma Geraldine was just 22 years old when the picture was taken and does in deed bare a striking resemblance to the Ghost in the Shell actress. Not only does the 32 year old Johansson look like grandma, it sounds like the pair would have a good time together, too.
Scarlett agreed and recorded a video response to denverjoe, “This video is for Grandma Geraldine. Geraldine, I cannot tell you, I have been absolutely inundated with emails and messages about how much we look alike. I want to meet you in person. I saw that you were, quote, ‘drunk as a skunk’ when taking that photo, and I would like to see your drunk face. I want to share a drunk face with you. Let’s have a drink, Geraldine.”
Not only did Johansson invite Geraldine for a drink, she offered to pay for any hidden expenses and invited the 72 year old to the premiere of her latest film.”Do you want to come see Rough Night with me? Be my guest? We’re a bunch of partying girls so it’s a pretty running theme.”
How could you refuse an offer like that!? Denverjoe wrote back that the would be thrilled to meet and share a light libation with the famous actress. In addition he wrote: “Grandpa died about a year ago after they were married for 54 years. She took it pretty hard. She’s the strongest woman I know. Must be where Scarlett got it from!”
