Ryan Reynolds mistaken for Ben Affleck and Ryan Gosling – The Deadpool actor shared how he often gets mistaken by fans for the other Ryan and even Ben Affleck, with Reynolds letting it slide, being the joker that he is.
Ryan Reynolds mistaken for other actors
Speaking on the Dear Hank and John podcast, Ryan Reynolds shared that he is often mistaken for Ryan Gosling and even Ben Affleck – one pizza place in New York’s East Village even believed he was Ben Affleck for years, asking him how Jennifer Lopez is doing and he would just play along and say that she’s doing great.
Reynolds was then asked how to tell the difference between himself and Ryan Gosling, to which he replied rather cheekily:
Two peas in a pod
Perhaps the confusion between the two actors stems from their similar names, long-shaped faces, and their Canadian citizenship – the longer you stare at Reynolds’ face, he somehow morphs into Ryan Gosling. Also, Reynolds does kind of look a little like Affleck with their beard and dark brown hair.
Ryan Reynolds has been a very, very busy man of late, starring in Free Guy and Red Notice recently as well as a movie about time travel, The Adam Project, set to be released in 2022 where he will be playing the main character.
