Westworld‘s Thandie Newton appeared on the UK’s “The Graham Norton Show,” which airs tonight, and the British actress told a rather funny story about how Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham mistook her for another actress, Zoe Saldana. I mean, can you blame her?
According to The Evening Standard, the story goes like this – as Newton was chatting it up with Beckham at SoulCycle in LA, Beckham mentioned how great it was that Newton was still exercising while pregnant.
‘We were chatting away when she said, “It’s so great that you are here when you are pregnant.” I said, “I actually had my baby a couple of months ago,” Newton said.
After a few more moments of conversation, Newton then realized that Beckham thought she was another actress.
“We carried on chatting and it was obvious she thought I was someone else so I said, ‘Do you think I am Zoe Saldana?’” Newton asked.
She went on to say that when Beckham realized her mistake, she was “mortified.” Newton had to get a dig in by also saying that both she and Saldana are from two different countries, so how could she have gotten that wrong considering this wasn’t the first time the two had met?
“Victoria was absolutely mortified! It was actually okay as Zoe is a rare beauty, but really? up close? Come on! And, I am British!” Newton exclaimed.
Well, I’m split on this one. While I’m team Posh Spice when it comes to the actual look of the ladies, I’m also team Thandie because the accent would have given her away. But it’s a compliment nonetheless. What do you all think?
Doppelgangers or nah?
