When Scarlett Johansson discovered she had a 72-year-old doppelganger, the actress invited the look-alike to the premiere of her new film, Rough Night, and the duo appeared to live up to the movie’s title.

“When I found out that obviously she looked exactly like me but she was wasted, I was like, ‘You should come and we should get wasted together at the Rough Night premiere,’” the actress told Stephen Colbert Friday on The Late Show.
She then added that they did “get kind of trashed” at the New York premiere Thursday.
“Can she party? My gosh, she’s a lush!” Johansson joked. “She was such a nice woman, though. She’s from Arkansas and her daughter, of course, owns a bar.
“And I will eventually make my way to Arkansas and continue this lovely family reunion. She’s just awesome.”
Earlier in the year, 72-year-old Geraldine Dodd, came across a little scrapbook photo of her 22-year-old self. In the 1967 picture, she has short, blonde hair and looks exactly like the actress.

After her grandson shared the photo on Reddit, it quickly went viral and eventually got the attention of the Lost in Translation actress herself.

Johansson then invited Dodd to the premiere of her new movie and drinks afterwards.
“I want to meet you in person,” Johansson said in a video sent to the grandmother. “Let’s have a drink, Geraldine.”
