You know how some people kind of look like their dogs? Well, what if your dog resembles someone else—like a celebrity? TV critic Margaret Lyons posted a photo of a Maltipoo (a cross between a Maltese and a Poodle) with the caption: “This dog looks like Laura Dern.”

Here’s the dog again, next to Laura Dern.

The tweet garnered thousands of likes and retweets. Clearly, people agreed with the comparison.

Someone even Photoshopped purple hair on the dog to reflect Dern’s role as Vice Admiral Holdo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The dog in the photo, in case you were wondering, does have his own Instagram account. His real name (yes, it’s a boy) is Kimchee.

What is it about Kimchee that looks so much like Laura Dern? Maybe it’s the hair. Or the intense facial expression. Or a little of both. The real, human Laura Dern didn’t seem to mind; she shared the image and tweeted, “Should she have played Renata in Big Little Lies?!”

Maybe an all-dog version of Big Little Lies is what we need. We just need to find the dog versions of the other actors on the show.
