Celebrities you confuse

Some look alike, some have similar names.

Some you just confuse for no reason whatsoever. Who do you confuse?



Whenever I hear the name "Robert Downey Jr" I think it's some American politician. I know it isn't, but it's the first thing my mind jumps to when I hear the name.

Apparently JK Rowling was told to use her initials because boys were less likely to buy a book written by a woman. Then it's quite ironic that because of her, I started thinking that authors were women all the time. JRR Tolkien's name began with a J, so she must be a woman! And I heard CS Lewis was friends with Tolkien, and even though it's the surname, Lewis is also a girls' name (because Lewis Carroll is also obviously a woman) so she must be a woman too.

And I always thought that Robin Williams was the person who played the father in the Casper movie.

I have confused Tommy Lee Jones and Billy Bob Thornton on multiple occasions.

I have also referred to Peter Jackson (LotR director) as Percy Jackson (demigod) more than once.
 

sv_01

Witch of Light
I think I got Stephen Hawking mixed up with Stephen King at some point. Might just be a misspeaking though.

Morgan Freeman and Gordon Freeman certainly.

I once confused Martin Freeman pretty badly. I dragged him along on an exciting adventure even though he's just a poor little British everyman! He was so bewildered!
 

Phantom

Uh, I didn't do it.

OMG THE CASPER DAD!

What is his name again? He was on Torchwood too, and it bothered me so much that I didn't remember his name.

My dad gets Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking mixed up because of their names and the fact that as they both like to disprove God's existence... (He's a Christian, I'm not...)

He was also the president in Independence Day. I forget his name a lot too, although I was better at remembering it recently since the new Independence Day trailer where they used his speech in the audio.



Also I remembered another one: Mike Myers and Rick Moranis.

I don't usually have problems distinguishing them visually, but it's another issue completely with singer's voices.

The problem isn't with English singers, but with Spanish singers. I've confused Gilberto Santa Rosa's voice with a variety of other singers (whom I won't detail all here).
