‘I just wish I had your hair’

Hollywood legend Woody Harrelson has written an adorable poem for a baby girl who looks like his double.

Danielle Grier Mulvenna took to Twitter to share a cute photo of her daughter laughing, comparing her to the Zombieland actor.

“Ok but how does our daughter look like Woody Harrelson,” she wrote, though she could never have predicted the amount of attention it would receive. Since posting on the Wednesday, the post has garnered over 4980k likes and 26.6k retweets.

After going viral, the tweet caught the attention of Harrelson, 61, who then posted an “Ode to Cora” on Instagram.

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

His own post gained over 230k likes, with many people sharing their thoughts in the comments.

“You’ve made our day. Can’t wait to show her this when she’s older, you have another fan for life xxx,” wrote Mulvenna.

She added on her Twitter: “It’s not every day Woody Harrelson writes your daughter a poem.”

In a separate tweet, the mum continued: “Cora says, thank you all so much for the likes and retweets and also that she doesn’t always look like Woody Harrelson, it’s just that when she does…she really really does xxx.”

While it’s not every day an actor writes a poem for your baby daughter, it’s equally as rare to have a baby girl look so similar to a man decades her senior. She told TODAY that she only realised the resemblance after a friend pointed it out.

“Basically we never saw the resemblance until our friend Chris pointed it out at a BBQ. Then once we took that photo of her laughing it was undeniable,” she explained, adding that she didn’t think the post would get much attention.

The mum is positively “blown away”, and honestly, so are we!
