Neeson has said people often confuse the “Harry Potter” and “Taken” stars. That shouldn”t be too much of asurprise since the two have starred in multiple films alongside each other (“Schindler”s List,” “Wrath of the Titans”). The only difference is thatFiennes usually plays the bad guy while Neeson”s the hero.
“He is one of my best, best, dearest friends. I keep getting fans and stuff mixing me up with Ralph because we have very similar profiles,” Neeson said on The Jonathan Ross Show in 2014. “So I”ve been complimented on winning a Tony Award for my Hamlet, he”s been complimented on the “Taken” movies.”

The “New Girl” actress was initially kind of frustrated when fans confused the two.
“It”s a little bit annoying, to be totally blunt,” Deschanel told MTV back in 2009. “The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike.”
The actress has since appeared to warm up to the similarity.
“I was relieved because everyone kept saying ‘this girl looks so much like you,””she told Letterman in November 2012. “And then I met her and I was like, “Thank God she’s attractive!” I was worried she was gonna be an unattractive person.”

“Afterward she started listing off the projects that she liked of mine and I quickly realized that she thought I was Selena. And I kind of just went with it because I didn”t want to crush her dreams,” she continued.
Hale added that she believes there”s a group of women in Hollywood who all have a similar vibe including herself, Sarah Hyland, and Maisie Williams.
