Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez is pretty thrilled for her Golden Globe nomination, and she isn’t going to let that slip-up bother her. 

Former Ugly Betty star America Ferrera was one of the actors who on Thursday morning announced the nominees for the 73rd Golden Globes, but the Globes’ Twitter account confused the actress for Rodriguez. When Entertainment Tonight asked Rodriguez about it, she didn’t seem too upset. 

“I didn’t hear anything until recently someone sent me an article, but who cares?” she said. “America’s lovely. She’s so beautiful and such a fantastic actress. If there’s anybody I want to get mixed up with, it’s her for sure.”

Both Ferrera and Rodriguez have won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy TV series. The latter’s first win came last year for the first season of Jane the Virgin, but the second nod still affected her immensely.

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association changed my life last year, like entirely,” Rodriguez said to ET. “I don’t feel like I could have ever have asked for any more. So this morning, when I heard my name called, I fell to the kitchen floor and started crying.”
