Even stars can have celebrity doppelgängers.
Reese Witherspoon and Carrie Underwood proved this to be true after a fan mistook the 44-year-old actress for the 37-year-old singer.
The slip-up took place after a social media user, Noha Hamid, spotted the Legally Blonde star while eating at a barbecue place in Nashville.
“I swear, I see this, like, lady with her husband and kid, and I’m like, ‘That looks just like a celebrity,'” Hamid said in a TikTok video. “And I’m trying to think who, and I’m like, ‘Oh, Carrie Underwood?'”
Hamid couldn’t fully see the celebrity because the A-lister was wearing a “big cowboy hat” and a mask. So, Hamid decided to solve the mystery and approached the celeb.
“I wait until she kind of goes back to her car so I can, like, ask her if it’s her—not in front of everyone to blow her cover,” Hamid said. “Then she’s like, ‘Hey! Oh no, I’m not Carrie Underwood. But have a great day.'”
Initially, Hamid thought the star was lying. It wasn’t until later that she realized she had been talking to Witherspoon. The Oscar winner seemed to get a kick out of the mistake, too.
“To the woman in the parking lot who just asked me if I was Carrie Underwood: You officially made my day!” Witherspoon tweeted.
Underwood did, too.
“YOUR day?!?!?!?!” the Grammy winner replied. “That lady just made my whole life!”
YOUR day?!?!?!?! That lady just made my whole life! ❤️❤️❤️

“He’s way better-looking than I was,” Ruffalo said on the Tonight Show in March 2019. “Are you kidding me? I wish I looked like that, I swear to God.”
People have told me that we look alike,” Meyers said on Late Night With Seth Meyers in June 2018. As Grant said, “I know.”
“I hope that I become half the woman she is,” the actress said about George Clooney‘s wife, an international human rights lawyer, in an interview with Extra in 2015. “She’s so accomplished and it’s so thrilling to look at someone and be like, ‘Wow. You really are making the world a better place.'”
The actresses, who starred together in Nocturnal Animals, are aware of the comparison. In 2016, Fisher said on NBC’s Today show that she once cut and pasted Adams’ face over hers for her family’s holiday card.
