We thought it was hilarious when a weekly magazine accidentally published a photo of Victoria thinking she was Nina, but Victoria told us it wasn’t a one time thing!
Victoria Justice has a celebrity lookalike in our midst named Nina Dobrev — and we’re not the only ones who think so! Last week, US Weekly accidentally published a photo of Victoria, 18, in a feature about Nina — and we couldn’t help but ask Victoria about the mix up during an interview with the Nickelodeon starlet March 22.
“I’ve never really had a doppelgänger in my life, so this is like my first experience with this thing,” Victoria — who stars in her own TV show, Victorious — told us. “I thought that was hilarious the fact [US Weekly] put a picture of me thinking it was her.”
Victoria said it’s not only the media who gets confused between her and The Vampire Diaries star — their own friends have mistaken them before too!
“I went to a premiere for a movie Nina did for MTV a while ago. I was on the red carpet and one of her cast members walked up to me and started kissing and hugging me saying, ‘Nina, you look so beautiful,'” Victoria said, laughing, “I was like, ‘I’m definitely not Nina and I don’t know you!'”
Apparently, Nina, 22, told Victoria she’s had the same experiences with people confusing HER for Victoria.
“I’ve met her a couple of times,” Nina explained. “Both of us were like, ‘People always think I’m you!’ We laughed and it’s pretty funny.”
Be sure to vote for Victoria for Favorite TV Actress at the 2011 Kids’ Choice Awards and catch her performance on the pre-show April 2! Check back later for more from our exclusive interview.
