Who knew that Brazilian Chanel model Alice Dellal was cousins with Jemima Kirke AKA Jessa from Girls?! Well, she bloomin’ well is! Dellal recently posted a video on her Instagram account of the pair dancing about in their underpants to the Jackson 5, along with the caption ‘Jemima gets “grounded” so we stay in and dance to jackson5’. We guess this must be a pretty old video if the 28 year old mother of two was “grounded”, the pair also look fairly young; however, we can still imagine Jemima jumping around in her underwear these days, so we just don't know! We have to admit, now that we’ve seen the pair together we can’t believe we didn’t put two and two together before, they look totally similar!
