I run into this all the time, not as much with regard to myself, but because I am friends with people who have auctorial constructs that are very well-known.

When people find out I'm friends with those authors they rarely ask me what they are really like -- instead, they assume I am friends with the construct -- that I like the construct persona that they like (or dislike), and that is who I'm talking about if I refer to my friend.

Sometimes I just refer to "a friend of mine" instead of using someone's name to avoid having that construct enter the room, because it can really derail a conversation.
