Even Ron Howard mistakes Jessica Chastain with Bryce Dallas Howard sometimes.
During an interview promoting “Dark Phoenix” with her co-star Sophie Turner, Chastain recalled the time she ran into Ron at the Apple store where he thought Chastain was his daughter Bryce.
“I was at the Apple store and Ron Howard was there, and I was like walking by and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s Ron Howard,’” she explained.
“My friend [who] was with me said [Ron] turned to someone and he goes, ‘I think I just saw Bryce.’… I mean it was brief,” Chastain added. “I literally walked by and he was like, ‘I think I saw Bryce.’… We look so much alike.”
That wasn’t the only time the actresses got mixed up.
According to Chastain, she even thought she was Bryce once. “Before even my career took off, I remember one time being in the subway, I was like, looking at … a magazine and there was a picture of her, and I looked at the picture and I was like, ‘What am I doing in this magazine?’”
Adding, “I actually had that thought.”
Chastain and Bryce have even starred together on the big screen as Celia Foote and Hilly Holbrook in 2011’s “The Help”, respectively.
