A Newspaper Gets Ben Affleck Mixed Up With Ben Stiller (VIDEO)

A Newspaper Gets Ben Affleck Mixed Up With Ben StillerBen Affleck is famous around the world, and has just released the new film 'The Town' -- which he wrote, directed, and starred in. But that still doesn't keep reporters from confusing him with other people, as we learned on the latest 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC).

Jimmy's sidekick Guillermo brought a Spanish-language newspaper into the studio. The paper very politely listed Affleck next to Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp -- which is pretty good company, acting-wise. Unfortunately, the paper also got Ben's name slightly wrong, calling him "Ben Stiller." Whoops. "This is bullsh*t!" Affleck said. As it turned out, the article wasn't even about him. The paper just mixed up his photograph with Stiller's.

Still, the actor tried to see the bright side of things, and also showed off his Spanish. While reading the article involving Mr. Stiller, Affleck noticed this: "He's facturó 53 millones." (Translated -- "He's made 53 million dollars.") That is indeed a lot of cash, and it helped Affleck adjust to the photo error. "I don't mind being Ben Stiller," he said, "if I 'facturó 53 millones.'"

True, we'd probably all be pretty happy with $53 million. Although Kimmel points out that the figure might be in pesos, not dollars. Still, that wouldn't be too bad. That would still equal more than four million, one hundred and fifty-three thousand dollars, in American money. (See? We can show off too, just like Ben.)

At least Ben Stiller is a bit talented. Affleck is handsome, but cannot act, at all!!!!!!!
