Helen Hunt mistaken for Jodie Foster by Starbucks barista
Helen Hunt says a confused barista mixed her up with fellow Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster.
Hunt writes in a tweet that she asked a Starbucks barista if she wanted her name after giving her drink order. She writes the barista “winked and said. ‘We Gotcha’,” ending the tweet with a hashtag of Jodie Foster’s name and a picture of a drink with the name, “Jody,” penned on it.
This is far from the first time Hunt has been confused with Foster. In a 1994 appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” she discussed being mistaken for Foster by a cashier in a supermarket checkout line. She said crime boss John Gotti remarked on their similar looks, as well.
