You guys know Keira Knightley, right? She played Fantine in Les Miserables and Princess Mia in The Princess Diaries? Oh, whoops, sorry, that’s Anne Hathaway! My bad. I just confused the two, which is fine, though, because apparently everyone does that. Because if you’re a woman and you’re pretty, you must be one person, right? Right.
Agh, damn autocorrect, I meant to say WRONG. SO WRONG. You would think that after spending years starring alongside Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies (not to mention her stellar performance in the Oscar-bait film, The Imitation Game)and revealing her nipples to the world that people would recognize her immediately. But in fact, Keira says she’s often a victim of mistaken identity. Apparently, on a recent trip to the airport, a fan mistook her for Anne Hathaway. She said to the Daily Telegraph,
“Actually I think I have to apologize to Anne Hathaway because the woman (at the airport) thought I was being really rude as Anne Hathaway not giving her a picture as Anne Hathaway but I was really only saying that I promised I wasn’t Anne Hathaway — which I am not. Actually it’s the first Anne Hathaway I have had. Generally I get a lot of Rachel Weisz and Natalie Portman.”
She’s such a ball of class. She’s an A-list actress and deserves to be recognized, and I imagine that there are a significant handful of those out there who would get really upset if they were mistaken for another celebrity. But no, rather than huff about the fact that people think she’s someone else, and oh my god, have they even SEEN Love, Actually, she’s worried about giving old Annie a bad rep. What a peach. Though, I guess the resemblance didn’t hurt, because it was their similarities that actually ended up landing her the starring role in Laggies after Anne dropped out last minute. So, it’s a lose-win, I guess?
I didn’t actually see Anne Hathaway parallel, but now that she mentions it, and after some light Google image searching, she does look a little bit like Natalie Portman. They could be twins, if they were really trying. Quick, someone call Hollywood, I just had the best idea for a Parent Trap remake. Patrick Stewart can be the dad and Jane Fonda can be the mom. Oh my god, guys, this is pure gold. Do you have Hollywood’s number? They changed it and they didn’t give it to me this time.
Nobody? Fine. I’ll just be here marathoning
Anne Hathaway Keira Knightley movies (damn, I did it again).
