Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has offered her sympathy to a woman who was chased by paparazzi after she was mistaken for the Dreamgirls star.

The unnamed female, who bears a striking resemblance to Hudson, was photographed by snappers who were convinced she was the real thing.

Now Hudson has taken to her Twitter.com page to clear the air about her lookalike, insisting she feels sorry that she had to deal with photographers.

Posting a snapshot of her doppleganger, Hudson writes, "Cute girl! But that ain't me! I know the poor girl was like, 'Why are they taking pictures of me!!' Wow!"
