Gabriel Byrne on Being Mistaken as a Real Therapist on 'The View' (VIDEO)

There's no denying Gabriel Byrne of 'In Treatment' is a fantastic actor. In fact, maybe he's too good. On 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated), Byrne said that, because of his character Dr. Paul Weston, fans sometimes assume he's a real therapist and was even once mistaken as Dr. Drew Pinsky.

"I met somebody the other day who thought I was that guy who intervenes with celebrities who are having breakdowns," Byrne said, meaning Pinsky. "Some people think I'm a real therapist and then I have to say to them, 'Really, I'm just a fake. I pretend to be a therapist.'"

"Real therapists come up to me and talk to me about their problems," Byrne continued. "And I actually don't know the answer to anybody's problems. And I don't even know the answer to mine."
