When you’re John Stamos you expect to get recognized by strangers, but you probably don’t expect to get confused for Rob Lowe.

While on vacation, Stamos, 52, was mistaken for another handsome actor by a fan – and he caught it all on film. The Fuller House and Grandfathered star shared the hilarious experience via Instagram on Thursday with the caption: “#Awkwardvacationmoments” and tagged Lowe.

In the woman’s defense, both actors have great hair, dashing looks and are both the same age – so clearly it’s a compliment.

Lowe, also 52, has yet to comment on this case of mistaken identity.

Fuller House is currently streaming on Netflix, and Grandfathered airs Tuesdays (8:30 p.m. ET) on Fox.
