When you work in the entertainment industry it's easy to take for granted things that the average person just doesn't know. Among those things, apparently, is the fact that Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard are actually two different actresses. While the fact that the two actresses have some physical similarities is certainly obvious, the two apparently get mistaken for each other on a somewhat regular basis. And Jessica Chastain says she's sick of it, using a popular TikTok meme to voice her, tongue-in-cheek, displeasure.
The meme is a simple one, it includes people lip-syncing to an audio track by KingDiaaa2 with text explaining what is they are sick of. In this case, Jessica Chastain is sick of people thinking she's in the Jurassic World movies, because she's not actually Bryce Dallas Howard. Check it out.
The mem is funny on it's own but it's the massive smile that Jessica Chastain has at the end that makes it art. She's clearly having a blast here. She also includes a great Parent Trap reference, because they're not actually identical twins. They are actresses of close to the same age who both have red hair, but one feels like that shouldn't actually be enough to get them confused.
While the two actresses can look very similar, they rarely actually make similar movies. The roles that each tends to take are different enough that I honestly find it tough to believe that people really get them confused. Maybe a glance at a single still image of one might cause you to get confused on who it is, but if you actually see them on screen they really don't resemble each other that much, do they?
Of course, I'm likely preaching to the choir. If you're reading this then you're probably enough of a movie fan to know who is who. If there is any real confusion it's likely among the more casual movie audience who doesn't necessarily pay that much attention. A lot of people who go to see Jurassic World movies probably don't actually know the names of all the actors, so some of them probably think Jessica Chastain is in those movies.
For those who need help, Jessica Chastain is a two-time Academy Award nominee who will next be seen in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, which may very well get her a third Oscar nomination. On the plus side, Chastain looks nothing like herself there, and thus nothing like Bryce Dallas Howard, so nobody should get them confused.
Bryce Dallas Howard is the one who will next be seen in Jurassic World: Dominion, a movie which likely to make a ton more money than basically any movie Jessica Chastain has ever been in. One wins awards, the other makes blockbusters. We good?
