It must be good to be Ryan Reynolds or Ben Affleck, but even their fame comes with certain eccentricities that you and I simply aren't privy to. One of those eccentricities is getting mixed up with another famous face. That's exactly what has been happening to Ryan Reynolds in recent years as he explained when he stopped by the Dear Hank and John Podcast.
Apparently there's a certain restaurant in the Big Apple that seems to think Reynolds is somebody he's not. And the Canadian, being the prankster that he is, has never bothered to correct them in all the years he's been a customer.
People Think Ryan Reynolds Is Ben Affleck
"There's a pizza place in the East Village in New York that I've been going to for years," Reynolds said. "They believe I'm Ben Affleck and I've never corrected them. I feel it would not go over well if I revealed - They just think I'm Ben Affleck and they'll ask how J.Lo is and I'm like, 'great, good.' I get the pizza and off I go."
Can you imagine that? That's Canadian politeness at an all-time high. But Affleck is not the only actor he gets mixed up with. When he's not mistaken for Ben, he he tends to get confused for Ryan Gosling, the other famous Canadian Ryan.
Not a bad pair of actors to be mistaken with by any accounts. Either way, Reynolds seems to take these mix ups in stride, always seeing the humor in a situation like that. Chances are they'll start calling him by his real name after they read his interview.
But even if they don't, Reynolds certainly won't mind!
