It’s okay, Minnie Driver. You are now keeping pretty good company.

The actress can suddenly relate to mega stars such as Christina Aguilera after Driver flubbed a couple lines over the weekend while singing a rendition of the National Anthem.

The former About a Boy star started out strong, yet went on to botch the lyric "O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming."

(If you watch the above video closely, you’ll note that Driver chose a different word than "watched.")

Shortly thereafter, the British beauty turned "Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave," into "Oh, say can that star-spangled banner yet wave."

Fortunately, Driver was able to laugh off her mistakes.

"Gosh, I sang ‘hailed’ instead of ‘watched’ during the Nat Anthem last night. What can I say? I am an imperfect human being. I think that’s ok," she Tweeted.

And when someone asked Driver whether she now feared deportation, the actress joked back:

"I think in about half an hour."

While we’re here, it seems worth referring readers to the greatest National Anthem rendition in history: take it away, Whitney Houston!
