Fans mistake me for Bono: Robin Williams

Los Angeles: Holywood funnyman Robin Williams says drunk fans often mistake him for U2 frontman Bono.

The 60-year-old actor was recently approached by a man in Paris who thought he was the the U2 singer, reported E!online.

"I had a guy come up to me in Paris saying, `Are you Bono?` Then he said, `Oh no, you`re not, you`re Robert Windsor`. I only really get mistaken for Bono by people who are really hammered. I suppose when I put on the glasses I look a bit like him. It`s usually from a distance and by people who`ve had a lot of medication," he said.

Despite being mistaken for the Irish star, the `Mrs. Doubtfire` actor, who is well known for being able to master a number of different accents and impressions, is unable to pull off an Irish accent to meet his high standards.

"The Irish accent is one I just can`t seem to get. I always start doing it and then it just fades. It always ends up going into Scottish," he said.
