Jessica Chastain or Bryce Dallas Howard? Well, if you’re like most, a lot of the time you don’t know.
Just for the record, Jessica Chastain: The Tree of Life, Zero Dark Thirty, Mama. NOT Jurassic World.
Bryce Dallas Howard: Jurassic World.
Both Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard were in The Help. Yeah, I’m not certain which one played which role, either.
Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard got a huge kick out of a parody video from Legolambs.
The video feature what is supposed to be Bryce Dallas Howard lamenting the constant confusion.
Bryce Dallas Howard recalled the reaction from both her and Jessica Chastain. She said, “My friend emailed me about that [Legolambs] video yesterday. I was like, ‘This is brilliant!'”
She continued, “We did a Dubsmash, and Jessica was dying. She was like, ‘Okay, this is totally a thing. We need to use this power for good and do a movie together playing sisters!'”
Jessica Chastain then posted their creation to Instagram.
That is so amazing. Hopefully that will help to clear up the confusion once and for all! However, Bryce Dallas Howard may miss the comparison to the lovely Jessica Chastain.
She said recently, “First of all, any day where I get confused for Jess is a very good day. She’s one of the most beautiful human beings I’ve ever seen. We went to college at the same time in New York. She went to Juilliard and I went to NYU. It’s been going on for a long time. I remember thinking that I need to meet her.”
Bryce finally got the chance to meet Jessica Chastain on the set of The Help.
She said of that day, “When we did The Help, we met each other and the first thing we did was find a mirror. We stood in front of it. And we compared. We’ve got red hair. There’s enough similarity that people make that comparison. My goal is to play sisters with her.”
What do you think about the confusion between Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard? Can you name off the top of your head which one played Hilly and which one played Celia in The Help?
