- The 50-year-old actress retweeted a picture of a Maltipoo named Kimchee but failed to realize that he is actually a male dog

Big Little Lies fans are going wild for a very well-groomed and well-dressed dog which they think looks remarkably like actress Laura Dern.
The dog — a Maltipoo named Kimchee — certainly has some human-like qualities, thanks to a spiffy designer outfit and fur that's parted in the middle of his head.
In fact, even the 50-year-old actress sees the resemblance — and god fans talking about an Big Little Lies remake cast entirely with canines.

Critic approval: The show has won several awards, and Laura just took home a Golden Globe
New York Times television critic Margaret Lyons was the first to notice that the dog looked a whole lot like the Golden Globe-winning actress.
On Tuesday, she shared a picture on Twitter with the simple caption: 'This dog looks like Laura Dern.'
The photo, which she took from Kimchee The Maltipoo's Instagram account, shows the stylish Houston dog dressed in a Pablo & Co. navy puffer vest and a Gucci bowtie.
Kimchee (who is actually a boy) has thousands of followers who look out for his very chic outfits.
Margaret's tweet was liked and retweeted thousands of times, eventually catching the real Laura Dern's attention.
In agreement: Thousands of fans have liked the image

Another role: Another fan edited the picture of the pup to give him purple hair, to look like Laura as Vice Admiral Holdo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Possibly seeing the resemblance herself, Laura wrote: 'Should she have played Renata in Big Little Lies?!'
Other fans have been quick to voice awe at the similarities, with one joking, 'There are so few good scripts for dogs that look like Laura Dern.'
'I have come back to this tweet like 19 times and been struck anew each of them by how completely true this is,' wrote another.
Yet another fan took the time to 'cast' dogs in the other Big Little Lies roles, finding three that looked like Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and Shailene Woodley in their roles.
Others who enjoyed Laura's turn as Vice Admiral Holdo in Star Wars: The Last Jedi Photoshopped the pup to give him purple hair, just like Holdo.
