Ryan Reynolds may not be Ben Affleck, but don’t tell his pizzeria that.
In a recent appearance on the podcast Dear Hank & John, the Deadpool actor shared that his local pizzeria, located in New York City’s East Village, regularly mistakes him for the Argo director.
“There’s a pizza place in the East Village in New York that I’ve been going to for years,” Reynolds said, per CNN. “They believe I’m Ben Affleck and I’ve never corrected them. I feel it would not go over well if I revealed.”
He added, “I do everything normal like everybody else. 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.”
The incidents of mistaken identity aren’t limited to just Affleck. Reynolds said on the podcast that people also occasionally confuse him for Ryan Gosling.
“Years ago, I used to play fast and a little loose more on Twitter. These days, I’m a little bit more reserved,” he said, repeating an old joke about how to tell the difference between him and his fellow famous Canadian. “I said, ‘Well the difference is easy to spot. Ryan Gosling has blond hair and Ryan Reynolds is a [expletive].'”
Reflecting on whether or not he’d have made a good lead on The Notebook, in which Gosling starred alongside Rachel McAdams in 2004, Reynolds said, “That would have failed horrendously. It would have been worse. I promise you. It would have been unwatchable.”
