Matt Damon has revealed that he gets mistaken for Mark Wahlberg all the time, and apparently vice versa. I’m a little confused on this one because while they look similar in the fact that they’re both handsome (to most, I guess?) white guys who are rich and work in Hollywood, their actual facial structure isn’t all that similar, is it?
From Absolute Radio (via DS):
“I’ve talked to Mark about this because he gets people [that] come up and say, ‘I love you in The Bourne Identity‘.
“So Mark and I have a deal. If we’re mistaken for one another, we have to be as polite as possible.”
That’s kind of strange, but people are kind of stupid, so I guess that makes sense. Matt even said that he’s signed Mark’s autograph before for fans who think that’s who he is.
“Oh yeah, yeah. You have to be as nice as possible. If they keep the thing going, you have to keep it going.”
Well, that’s nice of him, I suppose, not to shatter people’s dreams. Do you think they look alike? Not just “vaguely similar”, I mean alike enough for you to mistake one for the other?
