Justin Hartley may have gotten fame starring in “This Is Us”, but sometimes he gets confused for someone completely different.
Appearing on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday, the 40-year-old actor told host Jimmy Fallon about being mistaken for Ryan Reynolds.
“I went to this charity event,” Hartley said. “It’s really neat because you get to raise money for good causes, and people recognize you, and they’re really nice to you. This woman recognized me, and I could tell she did because she made this face.”
“She really likes me! I was feeling pretty good about myself,” he continued. “She starts telling me how great I am and how in love with me she is… she asked how Blake was, and I didn’t know what she was talking about— I said ‘great!’ She then asked me if I knew ‘Deadpool’ was going to be that big of a hit.”
For a moment Hartley said he felt insult, but then he “didn’t have the heart to tell her.”
“I just pretended like I was the coolest guy on Earth,” Hartley said, “Ryan Reynolds.”
