Ryan explained that he’s been going to the same pizza place in East Village in New York for years, and the place of business think he’s Ben.

“They believe I’m Ben Affleck and I’ve never corrected them. I feel it would not go over well if I revealed,” he said. “I do everything normal like everybody else.”

Ryan added that “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.”

Ryan isn’t the only star mistaken for another one.

Gossip Girl‘s Thomas Doherty revealed he’s often mistaken for this Marvel star a lot; and Jessica Chastain makes a yearly reminder video to her fans, telling them she’s not this other star, too.
