Ryan Reynolds is often confused with Ben Affleck at a pizza place in New York. The actor says people there sometimes ask him about Jennifer Lopez as they think he is Affleck.

"There's a pizza place in the East Village in New York that I've been going to for years," Reynolds said on the "Dear Hank and John" podcast Monday. "They believe I'm Ben Affleck and I've never corrected them. I feel it would not go over well if I revealed."

The 45-year-old actor further revealed that people there ask him about Affleck's girlfriend Lopez. "I do everything normal like everybody else," Reynolds added. "They just think I'm Ben Affleck and they'll ask how JLo is and I'm like, 'great, good.' I get the pizza and off I go."

Reynolds further noted that Affleck is not the only actor he gets mistaken for. Some people also confuse him with 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," Reynolds said before adding, "Well the difference is easy to spot. Ryan Gosling has blond hair and Ryan Reynolds is a s--t.'"

While it is not difficult to differentiate between Gosling and Reynolds, both the actors have a lot of things in common. They have an oblong face shape and even their first name is Ryan. And of course, both of them are Canadians.

Reynolds was recently seen in "Red Notice," which was released last month. He will be next seen in a sci-fi movie, "The Adam Project," which is helmed by director Shawn Levy and penned by writers Jonathan Tropper, T.S. Nowlin, Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin.

The actor will also feature in the Christmas-themed comedy movie "Spirited," which will also star comedy legend Will Ferrell. The movie is directed by Sean Anders and it is an adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel "A Christmas Carol." 

Reynolds will also feature in movies like "Everyday Parenting Tips," "Deadpool 3," "Dragon's Lair" and "Clue."
