Actress Kate Winslet finds it a “huge compliment” to be mistaken for Oscar winner Cate Blanchett.

The 48-year-old actress talked about movie fans regularly mixing her up with Blanchett. Winslet told people.com at the American Museum of Natural History about being falsely identified as the ‘Tar’ actress. She said, "That happens a lot, yeah."

Talking about if she ever goes along with the mix-up and pretends to fans she is Blanchett, Winslet said: "No, we do, yeah. I say, 'Oh, thank you so much.' And they say, 'Loved you in 'Elizabeth', and I say, 'Thank you. That's so kind.' And (Cate) gets the same thing, where people will say to her, 'Loved you in 'Sense and Sensibility', or, 'Loved you in 'Titanic'. So, yeah, it happens."

She also shared about how the mix ups are flattering to her, reported aceshowbiz.com. "To be mistaken for Cate Blanchett is a huge compliment. So, no, I'll take it - I'll take it."

The actresses appeared on the "Graham Norton Show" last week, where they talked about how they're frequently mistaken for each other.

Blanchett said: "I get it all the time. People will say, 'Is it you? Is it you?' and I say, 'Yes, I think so.' And then they say, 'I loved you in 'Titanic'."
