You won’t believe who confused Jessica Chastain as Bryce Dallas Howard

Aside from everyone, of course. People just keep mistaking Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard for each other. While that’s no surprise, what will come as a shock is that even Howard’s dad mistook Chastain for her as well!

Chastain revealed that director Ron Howard once confused her for his actress daughter. Speaking to her Dark Phoenix co-star Sophie Turner via The Associated Press she said:

“Before my career took off, I remember one time being on the subway and I was looking at a magazine and there was a picture of her, like a small picture, and I was like ‘What am I doing in this magazine?’ I actually had that thought,”

While she’s gotten confused herself, she managed to fool director Howard as well.

“Another time I was at the Apple store and Ron Howard was there,” she shared in the new video interview. “And I was walking by and I was like, ‘That’s Ron Howard’ and then my friend was with me [and] he said he turned to someone and said ‘I think I just saw Bryce.’ We look so much alike.”

The actress also recounted on meeting Bryce for the first time when they both starred in 2011’s The Help.

“When we finally got to film The Help, the first time we met, we went to the table read and looked at each other, because we both get it all the time, and we grabbed each other’s hands and we said, ‘Let’s go to the mirror.’ And we went to the mirror and we looked at each other… and we were like, ‘Yeah, we look exactly alike,'” she said.
