Ed Sheeran's third studio album release is causing quite the stir for Harry Potter alum Rupert Grintsince fans can't tell the two apart. 

During an appearance on The Late Late Show Monday, the child star told James Corden about how he's typically confused for the red-headed Grammy winner. 

"It's kind of 50/50 now," he joked. "Someone stops me—it could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me."

However, according to the British actor, it's not only everyday people that make the confusion. 

"Leo Sayer—he came up to me and said he loved my music, of course thinking I was Ed," Grint recalled. "I play along."

Grint isn't the only famous face to be confused for another. Logan actor Sir Patrick Stewart revealed people often mistake him for a fellow knighted star, Sir Ben Kingsley

"Of course, we look really nothing alike at all," he said. "Ben got stopped I think not too long ago and [the fan] said, 'Star Trek. I love Star Trek. You were fantastic.' Ben said, 'I'm terribly sorry. Excuse me but, I'm not Patrick Stewart. My name is Ben Kingsley." 

Crickets. 

"Then he said, 'But, I'm a very good friend of Patrick's' and the fan said, 'Well, congratulations on being a good friend of [his].'"
