AceShowbiz - Halle Berry has a sweet reaction after a social media user mistook her for Halle Bailey. The actress portraying Jackie Justice in "Bruised" didn't waste her time to set the record straight that she's not starring in "The Little Mermaid".
On Monday, December 27, one Twitter user tagged the "Catwoman" star and wrote, "Can't wait to see you under da sea," along with a mermaid emoji. The said person's post prompted the 55-year-old actress to respond, "… wrong Halle lol," before showing some support to the rising actress, "I can't wait to see her too though!"
Upon learning of her sweet response, one fan replied, "Gotta love being confused with someone 30+ years younger than you, though! Says a lot about how gracefully you have aged!" A separate Twitter user gushed, "If you wanted to dress like Ariel though I am sure a lot of us would be very okay with that!"
This wasn't the first time fans have mistakenly mixed up the two Halles. Back in 2019 when Disney confirmed the cast for the live-action remake of "The Little Mermaid", with Bailey starring as Ariel, many Twitter users expressed their need to do a double-take after reading the news.
"Legit spent an hour trying to figure out why Disney cast Halle Berry as The Little Mermaid. Then I realized it was Halle Bailey. I can't be the only one…," one person wrote at the time. Someone else added, "So, Halle Bailey is gonna be the Little Mermaid and that's fine because I just googled her and it turns out, she's not Halle Berry, who I thought was gonna be in 'The Little Mermaid'... all day long, seriously."
Afterwards, Berry tweeted, "In case you needed a reminder, Halles get it DONE." She then tagged Bailey, saying, "Congratulations on this amazing opportunity, we can't wait to see what you do!" In response, the 21-year-old singer/actress wrote back, "This means the world. happy to share names with you. Love you lots."
