Former chat show host ROSIE O'DONNELL was humoured recently when a fan mistook her for fellow comedienne Roseanne Barr.

The A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN star was waiting in line to see dancing documentary Mad Hot Ballroom when an excited cinemagoer accosted her.

On her official blog, O'Donnell writes: "Waiting in line at the theatre, a woman said, 'Where do I know you from?' (I replied) 'I used to be on TV'. (She said), 'Roseanne.' Close enough.

"Mad Hot Ballroom is an outstanding movie - go see it. Go see it for a soul smile."
