Ryan Reynolds always mistaken for Ben Affleck at NYC pizza spot

Ryan Reynolds is apparently a dead ringer for Ben Affleck.

Reynolds’ local pizzeria always confuses him for “The Last Duel” actor, and ironically he lets them.

“They believe I’m Ben Affleck and I’ve never corrected them,” he said about the East Village pizza spot on an episode of the “Dear Hank & John” podcast.

It’s been “years,” the “Deadpool” actor, 45, added. “I feel it would not go over well if I revealed.”

Despite grabbing a slice “like everybody else” and not getting it for free because of his celeb status, he thinks it may be too late to correct them.

“They’ll ask how J.Lo is, and I go ‘great’ and just get my pizza and go off,” he continued.

He also fears he may be giving Affleck a bad rep with his “mildly put out” look.

“When I leave, I think they’re like, ‘I don’t think Ben Affleck is amused by us. I gotta be more chipper. I gotta take care of Ben.’”

He revealed he’s also been confused for Ryan Gosling — another Canadian Ryan with star status. According to Reynolds, the two couldn’t be more different.

If he had starred in “The Notebook,” he said, it would have been “unwatchable.”

“That would have failed horrendously,” he joked. “It would have been worse.”

But Reynolds has a sure-fire way to set himself apart: announcing an acting sabbatical.

After he finished his last films “Red Notice,” with co-stars Gal Gadot and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and holiday movie “Spirited,” he declared he’d be stepping back from being on set until “Deadpool 3” began filming.

Earlier this year, Reynolds shared he “didn’t want to miss” time with his kids in an interview with LinkedIn.

“I really enjoy being a present dad. I love taking [the kids] to school in the morning, I love picking them up. I love that I have the hours in between to focus on the things that I’m really passionate about,” he said. “It is a juggling act.”
