Mom posts photo of baby girl who looks like actor Woody Harrelson – and he responds

People are accustomed to speculating whether a child resembles the mother or father. When a mother from Northern Ireland asked on Twitter why her daughter resembles Woody Harrelson so much, the internet went wild.

On August 3, Dani Grier Mulvenna tweeted a picture of her infant daughter Cora smiling alongside a screenshot of Woody Harrelson laughing in “Zombieland.” She wrote, “Ok but how does our daughter look like Woody Harreslon.”

This tweet has received over 500,000 likes, 3,000 quote tweets, and 30,000 retweets so far. The responses were hilariously diverse and numerous. However, there was one response that stole the show: that of three-time Oscar nominee and Emmy Award-winning actor Woody Harrelson.

Actually, not only did Harrelson see the post and reply, he penned an “Ode to Cora.”

“You’re an adorable child / Flattered to be compared,” he wrote. “You have a wonderful smile / I just wish I had your hair.”

Mulvenna tweeted after her initial post went viral: “It’s not every day Woody Harrelson [sic] writes your daughter a poem.”

And then: “Cora says, thank you all so much for the likes and retweets and also that she doesn’t always look like Woody Harreslon, it’s just that when she does…she really really does.”
