Taika Waititi's birthday wish for Charlize Theron will leave you in splits

Hollywood star Charlize Theron turned 45 on Saturday and 'Jojo Rabbit' director Taika Waititi took to his Instagram to wish the actress.

Sharing a few monochrome pictures, he wrote a hilarious caption: "Happy Birthday @charlizeafrica!! Can't think of anyone else I'd want to finger my bafta and I'll always cherish that time when I described Ashley Judd in a movie with Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino, and you said "That was me, a*****e". You're one of a kind."

Theron had an equally funny reaction to the birthday post as she commented, "Always available to finger that poor BAFTA that has to be around you. I love so f*****g much, Taik. Always and forever, even if you think Ashley Judd has been in all MY movies."

Netizens were quick to joke about the uncanny resemblance between Theoron and actress Ashley Judd. A user wrote, "She does look like Ashley Judd in that picture though!"

Another commented, "When I saw the photo, my first thought was 'oh no, did something happen to Ashley Judd?'”

Reacting to Waititi's hilarious caption, a user wrote, "You are both gifts to humanity. Best story ever!!"

This is not the first time filmmaker Taika Waititi's birthday wishes for his friends have left the internet in splits. In April, on Robert Downey Jr's birthday, Waititi had posted a picture of Television presenter Graham Norton. The post garnered a lot of attention on social media and triggered a rib-tickling meme fest.
