Woody Harrelson has penned a poem for his baby doppelganger after her mother made the child’s looks famous.
Dani Grier Mulvenna, from Northern Ireland, shared a photo of her young daughter Cora on Twitter, remarking on how much her nine-month-old looked like the Hollywood star.
The True Detective actor responded to the viral social media post, writing a paean to his infant lookalike and declaring that he was “flattered” by comparison to the baby girl.
The 61-year-old balding actor wrote on Instagram:
Ms Mulvenna had originally posted a picture of her young girl grinning, alongside a still of Harrelson from the 2009 film Zombieland.
The original social media post was shared by 30,000 people on Twitter, as people agreed that young Cora did share a striking similarity with the actor.
The photo appears to have been shown to Harrelson, who responded with verse.
Ms Mulvenna has since responded in an online statement saying: “It’s not every day Woody Harrelson writes your daughter a poem.”
Harrelson first found fame in the Eighties comedy Cheers, before moving into film, including with a leading role in White Men Can’t Jump, the 1992 basketball comedy.
The actor is also known for his activism, particularly with regard to the legalisation of marijuana and animal rights.
