Jessica Chastain and fellow actress Bryce Dallas Howard look very much alike and that fact has not gone unnoticed lately.

In fact, Jessica Chastian and Bryce Dallas Howard get credit where credit isn't due on many occasions for roles that the other played.

Earlier this year, Jessica Chastain even posted a song parody to Instagram of Bryce Dallas Howard claiming that she is NOT Jessica Chastain. Whew!

But, in real life, Bryce Dallas Howard said she loves getting mistaken for the very similar-looking Jessica Chastain.

Howard said of the constant mix up, “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."

Everyone get it yet? : ) performance by #BryceDallasHoward not #JessicaChastain

Jessica Chastain, herself, admitted that she has actually allowed people to think that she is Bryce Dallas Howard. Out of politeness, of course.

True story. #BryceDallasHoward is in #JurassicWorld

Jessica Chastain told Jimmy Fallon of one particular incident that took place on a New York subway in 2004, saying, “Then they go, ‘Yes, The Village was such a great movie.’”

Of course, The Village was Bryce Dallas Howard.

Jessica Chastain continued, “I had this moment of do I tell them that they’re wrong and it’s not me, or do I pretend I’m Bryce. So I pretended I was Bryce.”

I'm sure that would have been much easier than explaining the confusion.

What do you think of the confusion between Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard?
