The peculiar story of Scarlett Johansson and her 72-year-old lookalike


Cape Town – An old photograph of a now 72-year-old woman has gone viral because it looks just like Scarlett Johnasson!

Grandma Geraldine is the 72-year-old grandmother of Reddit user Denverjoel

And while she may be like any other grandmother, there is one thing about her that stands out from all the rest – she looks just like Scarlett Johansson, or atleast she did when she was 22 years old!

Denverjoel shared a throwback photo of Grandma Geraldine and her husband – who, according to E! News, sadly died last year – taken in 1967 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

My Grandma Looked Like Scarlett Johansson When She Was Younger


According to Joel, his grandmother was “drunk as a skunk” when the photo was taken and couldn’t believe at the comparison to ScarJo.

Scarlett on the other hand seems to agree with the similarities in their looks and now wants to meet Grandma Geraldine.

In a video on YouTube, the 32-year-old invites her lookalike to the premiere of her latest film, Rough Night, and even offered to pay for all the “hidden costs”.
