Actress Helen Hunt said a confused barista at Starbucks mistook her for Jodie Foster. 

Hunt tweeted that a barista asked her if she wanted her name on her drink, then winked and said “we gotcha.” 

After she received the drink, she saw the name “Jody” on it. 

This isn’t the first time Hunt has been mistaken for Foster. In a 1994 appearance on David Letterman, Hunt said that a supermarket cashier had also misrecognized her.
