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 also remarked on their similar looks.
