Jessica Chastain recently posted a PSA to Twitter reminding movie-goers that she’s not starring alongside Chris Pratt in the upcoming summer blockbuster Jurassic World. It’s Bryce Dallas Howard. The talented duo are often mistaken for one another, but the two understand the confusion—sort of. 

Howard told USA Today in a recent interview that The Help co-stars did a mirror side-by-side comparison, and didn’t see much of a resemblance. Well, except their locks. “We’ve got red hair. There’s enough similarity that people make that comparison.”

But Howard insisted that any day she is mistaken for Chastain is a “very good day” saying, “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.”

According to Howard, her goal is to one day play sisters with the two-time Oscar-nominated actress. Whether or not that dream will one day become a reality, fans can catch Howard in Jurassic World when the film debuts in theaters on June 12.
