Mark Wahlberg was mistaken for Matt Damon by a fan last week, but the 2 Guns star didn’t mind the comparison one bit.

The actor took to Facebook to joke about the mixup, posting a text conversation of a woman telling a friend, “We saw Matt Damon,” along with a photo of herself and Wahlberg.


The fan’s pal then texted her an actual photo of Damon, to which the woman responded, “I screamed *MATT DAMON!!* He didn’t correct us at all lmao.”

Wahlberg captioned the correspondence, “Close enough.”

Meanwhile, Damon said in a recent interview that he gets confused for Wahlberg all the time, and that he similarly never corrects the mistaken fans.
