Representatives for Ferrera and Rodriguez did not immediately return BuzzFeed News' request for a comment.


The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has released the following statement regarding the mistake: "What occurred this morning was an unfortunate error. Our sincerest apologies to both America and Gina."


On Thursday afternoon, ET Online asked Rodriguez about the Twitter error. "I didn't hear anything until recently someone sent me an article, but who cares?" she said in a video interview. "America's lovely. She's so beautiful and such a fantastic actress. But, you know, shoot, if there's anybody I want to get mixed up with it's her for sure! To me, it's like, whatever. We always make mix-ups in life, man."
