Ryan Reynolds repeatedly mistaken for Ben Affleck at New York pizza place

The “Deadpool” star and Canadian national treasure explained the mixing during a conversation on the “Dear Hank and John” podcast.

“There’s a pizza place in the East Village of New York that I’ve been going to for years,” Reynolds said. “They think I’m Ben Affleck and I never correct them. I feel like it wouldn’t go well if I revealed.”

“I do everything naturally like everyone else,” Reynolds added. “They just think I’m Ben Affleck and they’ll ask how JLo is doing and I’m like, ‘Wow, good.’ I get pizza and I go.”

He adds that when he’s not mistaken for Affleck, he tends to confuse him with famous Canadian Ryan Gosling.

“Years ago, I’ve been playing faster and more fading on Twitter. These days, I’m a bit more conservative,” he said, before repeating a joke he made sarcastically about how to tell him apart from Gosling. “I said, ‘Well, it’s easy to tell the difference. Ryan Gosling has blonde hair and Ryan Reynolds [expletive]. “

Reynolds said that if he had starred in “The Notebook” instead of Gosling, it would have been a disaster.

“It could have failed miserably,” he said. “It could have been worse. I promise. It was unwatchable.”
