Debbie Harry, Lindsay Lohan

Ouch?

But in all fairness, it sounds a lot worse than it is.

Photographers were camped outside the Mercer Hotel in New York on Sunday waiting for an anticipated exit from Lindsay Lohan who had hosted Saturday Night Live the night before.

Little did they know, another famous blonde was also staying there.

When Blondie singer Debbie Harry exited the hotel, covered up with a hoodie and shades (looking pretty fantastic for her age, BTW), cameras started snapping away thinking it was actually Lohan. Yes, she's 66 years old, but we gotta admit—whether it was the platinum hair or the similar smile, Harry looked a lot like 25-year-old Lohan.

Splash photogs told E! News that they were aware it was Harry from the start, and believe that the other photographers did not realize they were taking shots of the wrong person until after a few frames, but also mentioned, "Debbie bore a striking resemblance, albeit older, to the young starlet."

Are the two separated at birth, give or take four decades? Tell us what you think in the comments!
