Tagging the right star in an appreciation post is all in the de-tail.
Case in point? When a fan accidentally tweeted to Halle Berry about their excitement for Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, the Academy Award winner, 55, hilariously clarified that it wasn’t her that will grace the screen, but singer Halle Bailey, 21, instead.
On Dec. 27, the Twitter user tagged Berry and wrote, “Can’t wait to see you under da sea,” along with a mermaid emoji, to which the Catwoman actress responded, “… wrong Halle lol. I can’t wait to see her too though!”
Although this recent exchange is overwhelmingly cute, this actually wouldn’t be the first time fans have mistakenly mixed up the two Halles. In 2019, Disney announced The Little Mermaid remake casting lineup, of which Bailey will star as Ariel. Immediately after the announcement, Twitter users expressed their need to do a double take after reading the news.
