Actors sometimes get mistaken for another celebrity due to certain similarities they share in common. Most times, it’s due to looks, similar names or roles in movies. Some of these actors have become open about it. In this post, I’m going to share with you 6 popular actors who are sometimes mistaken for another celebrity.
1. Mark Wahlberg
The American actor Mark Wahlberg revealed that sometimes people walk up to him to praise him for movies he never starred in, as they believe he was Matt Damon. I never had the heart to correct them and sometimes play along, he said.
2. Rupert Grint
The Harry Potter star Rupert Grint is often mistaken to be the renowned English singer Ed Sheeran not just by fans but sometimes celebrities. He revealed this in an interview with James Corden on his “The Late Late Show”. “It’s kinda 50/50 now. It’s like if someone stops me, it could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me,” he said.
3. Kiernan Shipka
The renowned American actress Kiernan Shipka also revealed that she is often mistaken by fans to be the popular Harry Potter cast Emma Watson due to their close resemblance.
4. Chris Pratt
Fans sometimes mistake Chris Pratt for Chris Evan because they share the name Chris and they also play superheroes in Marvel Cinematic Universe. During an episode of Billy on the Street, Pratt was mistaken for Evans by some movie fans. Also during an Instagram telethon, Arnold Schwarzenegger accidentally called him Chris Evan.
5. Daniel Radcliffe
During an interview with Marc Maron, the harry potter star revealed that fans sometimes mistook him to be the popular Lord of the ring cast Elijah Wood.
On reasons why he is sometimes mistaken for Elijah Wood, Daniel thinks they do so because they are both short guys with big blue eyes and brown hair, and because their hit movies came out at the same time.
6. Lucy Hale
The American actress Lucy Hale is sometimes mistaken for Selena Gomez in the public, which she revealed to Insider. Most time I correct them and in some cases play along, she said.
