Dakota Fanning keeps getting mistaken for a pair of Hollywood A-listers

Apparently, all blonde former child stars look alike. At least that seems to be the case for a certain loiterer on Dakota Fanning's New York City block.

The 22-year-old former child star told James Corden a very funny story about a guy who keeps mistaking her for a pair of 30-year-old former child stars – 's Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

"It's funny, they come into my life a lot because there's a man that lives — well, I don't know where he lives — but he stands on my corner in New York where my apartment is, and he always would say to me, 'Hey Olsen! Hey Olsen!'" Dakota told James and his other guests, basketball great Shaquille O'Neal and the Olsen's former co-star John Stamos.

Speaking of John Stamos, he couldn't help but chime in while Dakota told her tale.

"Is it Bob Sagat?" he asked, referring to another former co-star.

James (pointing to John): "Do you ever get mistaken for other famous people?"

John (to Dakota): "I interrupted your story."

Dakota: "That's the end."

John: "That was it?"

Forget reboots. We want a John and Dakota sitcom!

Although she's not an Olsen, Dakota does have an actual connection to Mary-Kate and Ashley.

"I love , of course!" she said earlier in the chat. "I watched all their movies that [the Olsen twins] made.

We all went to the same high school at different times, and I'm friends with their younger sister Elizabeth Olsen."

Maybe 27-year-old Elizabeth is the Olsen that guy keeps mistaking Dakota for.
