Helen Hunt was recently mistaken for fellow fifty-something blond Oscar winner Jodie Foster at her local Starbucks.

Helen Hunt & Jodie Foster

“Ordered my drink @Starbucks Asked the barista if she wanted my name,” Hunt captioned a picture of her Starbucks cup emblazoned with “Jody.” “She winked and said. ‘We gotcha’ #JodieFoster.”

Upon getting wind of the mix up, Starbucks tweeted back at Hunt with a reference to the film for which she won her Oscar, As Good As It Gets. “Sorry about that!” the company tweeted. “We hope the drink was still as good as it gets.”

Hunt will soon be returning to TV screens in the forthcoming series Shots Fired, which is set to air on Fox. The show also stars Richard Dreyfuss and True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer.
