Laura Dern’s doggy doppelganger has gone viral (and she gets it!)

Laura Dern has a little, four-legged look-alike! Twitter user Margaret Lyons shared an adorable photo of an Instagram-famous Maltipoo named Kimchee – and it looks eerily similar to the Big Little Lies star. Naturally, it’s gone viral.

The best part? The cute pooch got a big seal of approval from the 50-year-old star! Laura responded with a hilarious comeback only a few hours later, referring to her incredible character on the critically-acclaimed HBO show: “Should she have played Renata in Big Little Lies?!”

While Laura’s loyal fans certainly appreciate her quick sense of humour, we definitely agree that the mother of two’s stunning talent couldn’t be replaced by a puppy! The show has received praise not only for its collection of some of Hollywood’s finest talent, but for shedding light on important subject matter in a raw and visceral way.

The cast is largely female-led, with Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley making up the dynamic group of women featured in the mystery story that centers around domestic violence and women’s issues. And the five aren’t quiet about these issues off-screen, either. Laura recently took home the Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a miniseries, making sure to leave an impression on the audience.

“This character that I played represents something that is the center of our conversation right now: abuse. I do believe and I hope that we can elicit change through the stories we tell and the way we tell them,” she remarked emotionally to the crowd. “Reese, Zoe, Laura, Shailene — we pledged allegiance to each other, and this is ours to share.”
