Scarlett Johansson invited a grandma, who went viral because of how much she once looked like the Hollywood actor, to get drunk with her at an upcoming movie premiere, and, thanks to the power of the internet, it is happening.
“I’m not going to be square. I’m going to drink with her [and] see if I can drink her under the table. She has got to remember to take it easy on me. I’m 40 years older than her,” Geraldine Dodd, 72, told TIME.
Turns out, partying with a celebrity was a decision the great grandmother made quickly.
“In a heartbeat, she said yes. Who says no to Scarlett?” her grandson, Denver Dodd said.
When Denver told his grandmother that a photo of her from when she was 22 years old unexpectedly got “big” on Reddit, she had one question: “What’s Reddit, and why am I big on it?”
But it didn’t take long for her to get the deal, and Johansson soon invited her to the bar for free drinks at the movie premiere for her upcoming comedy Rough Night.
“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,” she said in a video posted by Geraldine’s grandson.
“It’s an awesome feeling knowing that someone who deserves a little spotlight, like my grandma, gets to experience something like this,” Denver said.
Geraldine’s husband, pictured in the original photo taken around 1967, passed away last January.
Geraldine loves being a great grandmother, Elvis and 50 Shades of Grey.

Scarlett has been listed as number 48 on this year’s Popsugar 100. A list featuring celebrities they think have had the biggest year in Hollywood.
Scarlett Johansson continues to be very tight-lipped about her private life with her new husband Ryan Reynolds, but she proved to be a hard worker this year. Box office hit Vicky Cristina Barcelona premiered in August, followed by her movie The Spirit in December. The star-studded HJNTIY opened in February, adding another chart-topping film to her already crammed resume.
Hello Magazine is running a poll to find out who the most attractive female celebrity is. Scarlett is currently in second place for this week’s contest so head on over there and vote! The link is here.
