People speculate whether the child resembles the mother or the father. But when a mother in Northern Ireland took to Twitter to question how her baby girl looked like Woody Harrelson, the internet went into a tizzy.
On August 3, Danny Grier Mulvayna tweeted a smiling photo of his newborn daughter, Cora, alongside a screengrab of Woody Harrelson laughing in the movie “Zombieland”. “Okay, but how does our daughter look like Woody Harrelson,” she wrote.
In just two days, that tweet garnered over 483,000 likes, 2,670 quote tweets, and 26,6000 retweets. The reactions were widespread and, many were hilarious. However, there was one answer in particular that stole the show: from Emmy Award-winning and three-time Oscar-nominated actor Woody Harrelson himself.
In fact, not only did Harrelson see the post and reply, he wrote “Ode to Quora.”
“You’re a sweet baby / Glad to be compared,” he wrote. “You have a wonderful smile / I wish I had your hair.”
“It’s Not Every Day Woody Harrelson [sic] writes a poem to your daughter,” Mulvaena tweeted after her initial post went viral.
And then: “Thank you all so much for the likes and retweets and also that she doesn’t always look like Woody Harrelson, just when she does…she really does,” says Cora.
