Amy Smart & Ali LarterContrary to reports and popular belief, TMZ has exclusively learned blonde, mildly famous celebs Amy Smart and Ali Larter are in fact two completely different people.

Although both appeared in the 1999 film "Varsity Blues," rumors have circulated that the former roommates were actually the same vaguely familiar actress.

While Amy & Ali showed up at the same Alberta Ferretti event in blue frocks, Smart finally put the identity rumors to bed by wearing her hair in a ponytail -- in direct opposition to Larter's flowing long locks.

Another Hollywood mystery solved!
