Scarlett Johansson has a 72-year-old long lost twin out there and she's determined to meet her.

According to People, this strange-but-wonderful story started last week when Reddit user denverjoel posted a picture of his 72-year-old grandma, Geraldine, who was a dead ringer for Black Widow herself when she was younger. Seriously, it's uncanny:

The picture made its way to Johansson, who admitted that, yeah, the resemblance is twin-level.

"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 crap," Johansson said in a video she posted for her twin.

Johansson doesn't just want to acknowledge her doppelgänger, she wants to meet her.

"I saw that you were, quote, 'drunk as a skunk' when taking that photo, and I would like to see your drunk face," she said. "I want to share a drunk face with you. Let's have a drink, Geraldine."

She went on to invite Geraldine to be her guest for the premiere of her upcoming comedy, Rough Night.

Make this happen, denverjoel.
