“How does someone who has two Oscars at home get mistaken for someone else?” asks an incredulous Conan O’Brien.

“People get angry at me because they think I’m just trying not to sign an autograph for them or take a picture,” she explains. “They’ll say, ‘Oh God, I’m such a big fan, I loved you in ‘Alias’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s not me.'”

The “Million Dollar Baby” actress says fans will beg her, believing she says “no” because they’re invading her privacy.

“I say, ‘I’m not Jennifer,'” she says, revealing that she’s been told not to “be a b****” by pushy Garner fans who think she’s trying to avoid interaction.

“I didn’t want to give her a bad name so I took a photo and maybe someone will say someday, ‘That’s not Jennifer Garner,'” she tells O’Brien, revealing she’s spoken to the real Garner about the doppelganger confusion.

It turns out, Garner is quite familiar with the situation, having been┬ámistaken for Swank: “I asked her, and she said, ‘Oh my God, I get that all the time too.'”

Swank –┬ánot Garner – currently stars in the FX series “Trust” opposite Donald Sutherland.
