Oh no! Margot Robbie had to do a double take after she accidentally confused Prince Harry for another celebrity. And here’s a hint: it’s a singer with red hair!
Well, that’s embarrassing! Margot Robbie, 25, made an oopsie, after she mistook Prince Harry, 31, with another redhead celeb, Ed Sheeran, 25, at a Christmas party. Harry and Ed may be fellow gingers, but how did she mix up the prince of Wales with a two-time Grammy winner?!
“Everyone now thinks if they come on a night out with me in London they’ll bump into Prince Harry,” she explained to The Sun of the hilarious mix up. Margot admitted that she doesn’t really know the two apart, but apparently the Suicide Squad star was also boozing.
“I didn’t even know who it was. I’d had a drink or drinks,” she said. “I thought I was hanging out with Ed Sheeran.”
And even after she started talking to Harry, she still didn’t recognize him! “I was thinking ‘Ed’s a really cool guy. I’m going to take some pictures with him.'” SO funny!
But Prince Harry wasn’t exactly laughing, as the Wolf On Wall Street actress tells it. “When I saw him in those glasses, I was like, “Oh, my God, I didn’t know Ed Sheeran was at the party! And he got really offended,” she noted while visiting The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.
Okay, we have to admit that Ed and Harry look nothing alike, but it seems many fans and celebrities get gingers mixed up all the time. In fact, Ed Sheeran was often confused with Harry Potter‘s Ron Weasley, also known as Rupert Grint, 27. The common confusion even inspired Ed’s 2011 music video for “Lego House.”
Since Harry and Ed may get compared to their redheaded ‘bros’ from time to time, they probably let it go with a simple shrug. But after Margot’s latest fumble, we’re sure that she’ll take an extra hard look at who she’s talking with before blurting out the wrong name.
