    Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood find it frustrating being mistaken for one another

    The 'Harry Potter' star and the 'Lord of the Rings' actor regularly get confused for one another by fans but Daniel doesn't understand why as he doesn't think they look alike at all


    Speaking about an encounter with a fan, Elijah said: "Once I was in an elevator ... just me and one other person, and I could feel them looking at me intently. Just before the door opened, he got up the courage, pointed at me and said, 'Harry Potter!' I said, 'No!' and I walked away."

    Whilst Daniel said in a joint interview for Empire magazine: "Though we’re both short, pale, blue-eyed and brown-haired, I would say that we don’t exactly look alike. But the idea of us is exactly the same. When people say to me 'Lord of the Rings!' I literally just say, 'Nope.'"

    And Daniel also recalled a time where he signed an autograph with the words, 'I Am Not Elijah Wood', after he was mistaken for the actor during a red carpet event.

    He added: "I was once on a red carpet in Japan and a photo of you [Wood] was thrust at me. My first instinct was to say, 'Oh, I'm not ... So I can't ...' but I thought the language barrier would be too much," Radcliffe said. "So the quickest way to deal with it was just to write, 'I am not Elijah Wood, [signed] Daniel Radcliffe,' and then hope somebody translated that for him later."

    Meanwhile, Elijah previously admitted she finds it "amusing" when he's mistaken for Daniel.

    He said: "It's really common. I ran into somebody the other day and they said, 'I loved you in 'Swiss Army Man'. I was like, 'Oh, there we go again!' I actually find it really amusing."
