The year everyone realized Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard look alike continued on Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Chastain, who was on the show to promote Crimson Peak, told host Jimmy Fallon that she’s still getting praise for her starring role in Jurassic World. Except that was Howard.

“The biggest movie of the year. Fabulous! Not me,” Chastain said.

Chastain then went on to tell Fallon about an interaction she had on a New York subway in 2004, when a group of teenagers were lavishing her with praise for being an actress. “Then they go, ‘Yes, The Village was such a great movie,'” Chastain said. The Village starred Howard.

“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,” Chastain said.

Not that Howard would likely mind the fib. “Any day where I get confused for Jess is a very good day,” Howard said earlier this year. “She’s one of the most beautiful human beings I’ve ever seen.”
