Russell Kane and Russell Howard

Yes. I am clearly incapable of recognising anyone blush really thought you'd all agree!
Russell Kane and Russell howard? Are they both blond and small?

Chocoholism Fri 18-Apr-14 19:33:07

I'm not sure how any of those can mix you up, YABU is my verdict smile

Robert de Niro and al Pacino ( more who starred in which film )

You're like my DH - I swear he can't see faces properly confused

RunnerBeen Fri 18-Apr-14 19:34:30

I mix up skrillex and skyrim... i know one of them isn't a person but i never remember which is which.

Nerf Fri 18-Apr-14 19:36:30

Runner bean grin no idea - is sky rim a person?

Demi Moore and Courtney cox. Can only tell if it's friends or a film (Courtney - friends Demi - film)

DiseasesOfTheSheep Fri 18-Apr-14 19:38:17

I don't know if I could recognise half of them - but I get lots of people mixed up too. I just have no memory for faces!

MostlyCake Fri 18-Apr-14 19:38:50

Ben Stiller and the guy who played Happy Gilmore

MostlyCake Fri 18-Apr-14 19:39:37

Poshsausage Fri 18-Apr-14 19:39:38

Jennifer grey and Jennifer grey

Same person . Allegedly . But clearly not .

Doinmummy Fri 18-Apr-14 19:40:45

Robert de Niro and Al Pacino - I have to think of Scent of a Woman ( Al Pacino) and Meet the Fockers ( Robert de Niro) it's the only way I can picture them.

Cheesymonster Fri 18-Apr-14 19:41:01

I saw an interview with Samuel L Jackson in which he said he always gets mistaken for Lawrence Fishbourne. People yell 'Loved you in The Matrix!'.

MissOtisRegretsMadam Fri 18-Apr-14 19:42:38

Sienna miller and pixie Lott

Meryl Streep and glen close, more who played who type of mix up

Adam sandler and Ben stiller

The muppets and Sesame Street

JustSquirted Fri 18-Apr-14 19:44:06

For me it's Matt Damon and the other one who looks exactly like him.
Have to goggle, brb.

Sandthorn Fri 18-Apr-14 19:45:05

At least your mix-ups are based on some similar characteristics. Mine are entirely on similar names. My most embarrassing yet was, when going to see Beowulf with a friend, and told Ray Winstone was in it... "What, the guy with the moustache? The famous fertility expert???" confused blush

Nerf Fri 18-Apr-14 19:45:12

Some of you are weird grin those people look so different !

JustSquirted Fri 18-Apr-14 19:46:31

Mark Wahlburg.

Google is never wrong, therefore neither am I.

I googled "Matt Damon looks like" and there you go, mark wahlburg.

CurlyBlueberry Fri 18-Apr-14 19:47:18

I once watched a film at my in-laws. Halfway through, my FIL paused it and asked a question that caused my husband to explode, "They're DIFFERENT PEOPLE! Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon are different actors playing different people!" He looked to me for confirmation but sadly I was just as confused as my FIL and had also thought them to be the same person blush

That's bad isn't it?! JustSquirted were you thinking of the same? Or someone else?

elQuintoConyo Fri 18-Apr-14 19:47:36

Mike Leigh and Ken Loach blush I never remember who's who and who did which film. Quite embarassed about that, actually.

I was once rambling on about 'that dull bloke that you like, Jim Diamond fella' and DH knew I was talking about Neil Young! I'd only known future Mr ElQuinto about three days at that point, 16 years on and it still comes up grin

I don't ever mix up the same ones as you, OP.

Ah no you weren't, sorry!
