Michelle Williams will joke about her Destiny's Child namesake if she ever meets Beyoncé.

The 38-year-old actress shares her name with a member of the 'Survivor' hitmakers - which also famously featured Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland - and has said that whilst people get the two stars confused, she doesn't mind because she now has an "ice breaker" to help her whenever she meets pop superstar Beyoncé.

She said: "It gets me one step closer to Beyoncé, so I'm pretty good with it. Now I'll have an ice breaker if I ever get to meet Beyoncé. I'll talk to her about the old days of Destiny's Child. So thank you because I'll obviously be tongue-tied if and when that ever happens, and now I'll know exactly what to say."

The 'Venom' actress has never met the singer, also 38, but says the pair get confused for one another all the time.

Speaking to the Huffington Post, Michelle added: "My daughter is an enormous Stevie Wonder fan, and we went to a Stevie Wonder concert, and when I was in line to pick up our tickets, the guy said, 'No, you're not,' and I said, 'I am. I'm Michelle Williams,' and he said, 'No, you're not.' And I said, 'I really am.' I showed him my ID, and he said, 'Oh, that Michelle Williams. I just assumed that it was gonna be ... Oh cool. What?'"

It isn't the first time the 'All the Money in the World' actress - who has 12-year-old daughter Matilda with her late ex-partner Heath Ledger - has spoken about the mix-up either, as she previously spoke about the Stevie Wonder mishap whilst explaining the pair still get mistaken for one another, despite their completely different appearances.

She said: "Yes, we often get confused for each other. Let me tell you when I really got confused ... for that other Michelle Williams.

"When I took my daughter to see Stevie Wonder. They were like, 'huh?' [They thought I was the other Michelle Williams]. They were like, 'Oh, ohh ohh ohh ... OK cool.'

"My daughter is a huge Stevie Wonder fan and we were not gonna miss that night. But they were not expecting this Michelle Williams."
