Guess Justin Trudeau's mom is a Samantha! Kim Cattrall laughed off a blunder made by CBS' 60 Minutes on Sunday, March 6, in which she was mistakenly identified as Margaret Trudeau, the mother of Canada's current Prime Minister.

CBS first pulled out an old black-and-white photo of the Sex and the City star, 59, with Trudeau's father, former Canadian PM Pierre Trudeau, from its archives. The photo was taken in March 1981, during the Genie Awards in Toronto, Canada. At the time, the two were rumored to be dating. However, the snap of Cattrall and Trudeau was shown onscreen during a narration about the PM's parents.

Somebody then brought the blunder to Cattrall's attention, which prompted a hilarious reaction from the actress. "@JustinTrudeau @SixtyMinutes I have a son who is the Prime Minister of Canada? I couldn't b more proud," she captioned the pic.

Cattrall — born in the U.K., and raised British Columbia, Canada — continued to make fun of the moment, and even retweeted several reactions from followers.
