“I’ve talked to Mark about this because he gets people [that] come up and say, ‘I love you in ‘The Bourne Identity.’ So Mark and I have a deal. If we’re mistaken for one another, we have to be as polite as possible.

“Hollywood churns out people who look the same and we love to put people in boxes. It’s just a thing that we do as a species, we categorize people, we always have.”
