Elizabeth Banks attended the premiere of “Our Idiot Brother” Los Angeles Premiere…looking very retro! Elizabeth stopped by Chelsea Lately (aka her doppleganger) and dished on being mistaken ofr Chelsea Handler…lol! Do they really look that much alike!

“I was sitting in Toronto and a guy walked up to me and said, ‘Oh my god, my girlfriend loves you. She would die if I didn’t get your autograph. This is so exciting!’” the Our Idiot Brother actress recalled. “He’s like, ‘I just love your books. I mean, My Horizontal Life….’ I was like, ‘Oh, he thinks he’s meeting Chelsea Handler.’ I couldn’t ruin it for him!”

“I was like, ‘It’s nice to meet you,’” Banks told the man, acting as Handler. “I was just hanging out, being Chelsea, drinking my vodka and having a good time. He couldn’t have been happier.”

Handler experienced a similar situation in April when Bill O’Reilly mistook her for Banks at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

“People always say, ‘They look alike, but Chelsea’s obviously much older.’ Meanwhile, we’re the same age,” Handler, 36, quipped. “It’s like, what is wrong with everybody? Why can’t I just get a break?
