Anne Hathaway received an apology from Keira Knightley over the weekend after the Pirates of the Caribbean star was mistaken for her apparent doppelgänger, Hathaway.

Knightley, 29, told the Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph that a fan, believing she was Anne Hathaway, asked for and was denied a photo with Anne/Keira. The fan then accused Knightley of being rude.

"I think I have to apologize to Anne Hathaway because the woman [at the airport] thought I was being really rude as Anne Hathaway not giving her a picture as Anne Hathaway, but I was really only saying that I promised I wasn't Anne Hathaway, which I am not," she said.

The mama-to-be said she is often confused for other A-list actresses.

"Actually it's the first Anne Hathaway I have had," Knightley said. "Generally, I get [mistaken] a lot [for] Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman."

Meanwhile, Knightley, who is expecting her first child this spring, told Vogue in 2012 that being a stay-at-home mom will notnecessarily be a part of her future when the baby arrives.

“I’m glad that the subject is coming up again,” she said at the time, referring to the debate of whether women can successfully balance career with motherhood. “I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, ‘So you mean you are a feminist?’ As though feminism couldn’t be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don’t want to deny my femininity. But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”
