I mean, everyone kinda made out in this deal. Malala Yousafzai got mistaken for a TV star, and Mindy Kaling got mistaken for a 17-year-old.

A cocktail of racism, old age, and alcohol led to a mistaken identity incident at the New Yorker Festival, when an 80-something-year-old booze bag sidled up to Mindy, 35, to give her props on her Nobel Prize.

"Congratulations on your Nobel Prize," he said, before marveling at her swift recovery after being shot by the Taliban.

 Ms. Kaling was speechless. "Did he really think I'm Malala?" she said when he was safely out of sight. "And that if I were, I'd be at the Boom Boom Room?"

 Kaling, rightfully extracted flattery from the blunder. "That's the best thing that's happened all night," she reportedly said.

The man is now in talks with Harper Collins to pen a book on pick up lines, which includes such instant classics as, "All you South Asian chicks look alike."

And "Taliban, shmaliban- you can hardly tell you took a bullet!"

K. Not really.

The incident was recorded in full by reporter Jacob Bernstein, following Kaling for The New York Times.

The good genes certainly stayed in the family.

Emma Ferrer’s name may be brand new to the modeling industry, but her porcelain skin, raven black hair and ethereal grace on the cover of the new subscriber issue of Harper’s Bazaar is a flashback in time.

Ferrer's grandmother is none other than Audrey Hepburn, and the slim, long limbed, graceful, 20-year-old art student is the spitting image of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star.

Currently in her third year of studies at the Florence Academy of Art, the captivating brunette is the daughter of Sean Ferrer, who is the son of Mel Ferrer, Hepburn's first husband.

Emma wasn’t even born until a year after Hepburn died—of appendiceal cancer in 1993—so she never met the movie icon whom she so closely resembles.

"The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young," Emma Kathleen Hepburn Ferrer says of her paternal grandmother in the accompanying interview with Harpers.

"I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline — I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had."

Along with being a screen goddess in classics such as Roman Holiday and a style icon for a generation, Hepburn was a crusader for the world's underprivileged children as an International Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, traveling to Ethiopia, Somalia and Turkey.

She was also a muse for photographer Richard Avedon, who shot her for numerous Harper’s covers and on the streets of Paris, so it is fitting that Ferrer was captured by his grandson, Michael Avedon, for her own cover.

When asked if she owns any memorabilia from her famous grandmother, Ferrer shared, “All I can think of are her cashmere turtlenecks, which I adore and wear all throughout the winter … and a white antique stuffed teddy bear."

Frances Bean Cobain went and got herself all grown up!

The 21-year-old recently posted photos on Twitter that show she’s the absolute doppelganger of her late father, Kurt Cobain—and Popdust has the pics.

Sadly, Frances never really got know her father as he committed suicide April 5 1994, four months before her second birthday.

Frances inherited 37% of her dad’s estate following his death—estimated to be worth around $75 million—but she clearly also inherited many of his physical traits too.

Considering her punk rock heritage—mom Courtney Love admitted in an interview with Elle magazine that she took heroin throughout the first trimester of her pregnancy—the aspiring singer/artist appears to be remarkably grounded and down to earth.

Frances Bean Cobain might be the spitting image of dad Kurt, but she has inherited mom, Courtney Love's pout!


That could be down to her very close relationship with her paternal grandmother, Wendy O’Connor and aunt, Kimberly Cobain, whom she lived with after becoming estranged from Courtney.

Frances actually took a restraining order out against Love in 2009 following a physical fight—alleging in court documents that her mom existed on a diet of prescription drugs and cigarettes, was a conspiracy theorist and hoarder and that she once threatened to jump off a balcony while Frances was watching.

Love has been attempting to rebuild their relationship ever since, however, she admitted during an interview with Howard Stern last year that she and Frances only have contact over the internet.
