Bryce Dallas Howard mistaken for Jessica Chastain

Bryce Dallas Howard is often mistaken for Jessica Chastain.

The 'Jurassic World' actress, who co-starred alongside the Oscar nominee in 'The Help' in 2011, claims people regularly get her mixed up with her fellow flame-haired beauty, especially when she is wearing make-up.

The 34-year-old star, who has son Theo, eight, and daughter Beatrice, three, with husband Seth Gabel, told UsMagazine.com at her new film's premiere in Los Angeles: "It's such a compliment, you know? It's funny: when I don't wear make-up, nobody ever mistakes me for Jess, but whenever I put make-up on and look half-presentable, it's, 'Ah! Jessica Chastain.' I'm like, 'Thank you, I must look hygienic today.'

"My kids are the only ones who have not mistaken me for Jessica Chastain. I cannot say the same for my parents, though."

Bryce and Jessica, 38, poked fun at their regular cases of mistaken identity in video on the 'Zero Dark Thirty' star's Instagram page earlier this week, in which Bryce lip-synced along to Legolambs' viral song 'I Am Not Jessica Chastain'.

Explaining how the clip came about, Byrce said: "My friend emailed me about that video yesterday. I was like, 'This is brilliant!' We did a Dubsmash, and Jessica was dying. She was like, 'Okay, this is totally a thing. We need to use this power for good and do a movie together playing sisters!' "
