Scarlett Johansson doesn’t need to worry about aging.

At the New York City premiere of Rough Night on Monday,the 32-year-old actress posed with Geraldine Dodd, the 72-year-old who went viral after her grandson posted a photo to Reddit in which a younger Dodd bears a striking resemblance to the movie star.

The two hit the red carpet together, sporting coordinating clutch purses that read “Hello, my name is Scarlett,” and “Hello, my name is Geraldine” — although they swapped bags so they were holding each others’ names.

Johansson invited Dodd to the movie premiere (sponsored by Svedka) after seeing the viral photo.

“This video is for grandma Geraldine,” Johansson said in a video message. “Geraldine, I cannot tell you, I have been absolutely inundated with emails and messages about how much we look alike. And I had to look at the photo myself. Holy crap.”

She continued, “I saw that you were, quote, ‘drunk as a skunk’ when taking that photo, and I would like to see your drunk face. I want to share a drunk face with you. Let’s have a drink, Geraldine.”

After sharing the video online, denverjoe told Reddit commenters that his grandmother was “literally jaw-dropping dumbfounded” by Johansson’s invite.

He added, “We are so taking them up on their offer. My grandma can get down.”

Johansson was in head-to-toe Michael Kors Collection for the premiere of Rough Night. She created a disco-ball effect as she walked the black carpet at AMC Loews Lincoln Square in her custom silver-sequined, silk-crepe gown.

At the premiere, Johansson was joined by costars Kate McKinnon, Demi Moore (in Dior), Jillian Bell (in Marchesa Notte), Zoë Kravitz (in Oscar de la Renta), Ilana Glazer (in Lanvin) and the film’s director, Lucia Aniello.

The R-rated comedy follows five best friends from college who reunite in Miami for a wild bachelorette weekend. But when the partying ends up taking a dark turn, the longtime friends are forced to put their heads together.

“It’s hilarious,” McKinnon told PEOPLE of the script. “Scarlett Johansson is a great actress — really funny,” McKinnon said of her costar. “She improvises really funny stuff and it’s really rare to find the two rolled into one. And it’s such a cool thing to watch her just work. I sort of just sit there and go, ‘Wow, look at that.’”

Rough Night hits theaters June 16.
