Two is better than one, right? We sure think so! Believe it or not, many celebrities once shared the womb before they learned to share the spotlight. From Vin Diesel to Gisele Bündchen, find out which stars have twin siblings.
Jon & Dan Heder
Honestly, it's hard for us to know who's who in this family. The Napoleon Dynamite star Jon, and his twin, Dan, pursued similar careers throughout their lives, confusing people even more. Jon took to acting while Dan dove into visual effects and animation.
In an interview on the Late Show With David Letterman, Jon admitted that he and Dan would get into a lot of trouble pretending to be the other when they were kids. Their childhood was full of shenanigans, but it didn't stop there. As adults, they became partners in a production company that they now run together.
Gisele & Patricia Bündchen
Gisele Bündchen, the highest-paid global supermodel, began her career with Patricia by her side. Who is Patricia, you might be wondering? Well, she happens to be Gisele's fraternal twin sister! That's right, the gorgeous genes of the Bündchen family grace Gisele, Patricia, and their three other sisters as well!
The beauties were born five minutes apart but grew to be closer than ever. While Patricia prefers to stay behind the camera as Gisele's manager, her sis has expressed how much their relationship means to her, saying, "Sisters have got your back," recognizing that she is never alone in her endeavors. How sweet!
Aaron & Bryce Dessner
This is another set of twins that leaves us guessing, but at least their different haircuts help us out! Nevertheless, we know that these brothers gained fame side by side as founding members of their indie rock band, The National. At the age of five, they were given a flute and drum, a gift that kickstarted their careers.
Since gaining fame over the years, they've said that having a twin has massively helped their music. As they phrase it, "From the very beginning, we just sort of made things up together. That’s one of the great things about having a twin brother; you have a sort of feedback loop, where you can bounce things off of each other."
Aaron & Angel Carter
Did you know that Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter had a pair of twin siblings? Angel and the late Aaron may have been fraternal, but they were more similar than you might think. Angel once said, "There’s definitely like a twin connection. It’s not like you love them more or anything. It’s just that you connect with them more, you know?"
All of us who aren't twins might not know exactly what she means, but we can imagine! Born one minute before her late twin, Angel decided to use that as a head start in a different career direction than their older brother. She decided to pursue professional modeling while Nick and Aaron both dove into musical careers of their own. RIP Aaron Carter!
Benji & Joel Madden
You might not recognize Benji and Joel Madden by name, but you may know them by their band, Good Charlotte, instead! The identical brothers formed their band in 1996 and soon rode the 2000's wave of new punk rock and alternative rock music. Tattooed twins Benji and Joel saw major success in many ways.
Their band reaped many benefits, three MTV Awards, and a bond closer than their parents ever expected, to be exact. Along with the major accomplishment of selling millions of records, the two have taken over the stage side-by-side for years. What do you think? Would you be able to tell these two apart on stage?
Giovanni & Marissa Ribisi
You may recognize Giovanni from his roles in Sneaky Pete, Saving Private Ryan, or Ted, but in real life, he is actually the twin to his sister, Marissa! An Actress herself, Marissa starred in Dazed and Confused and Grown Ups, but most importantly to her, things have rarely become a Hollywood competition between the two.
The twins support each other through their acting adventures and have even bonded over it during their years in the industry. Giovanni once said, "It was extremely useful to grow up in front of the camera...I think it helped me have perspective on things." For Marissa's sake, that hopefully included how to be a good brother too.
Vin Diesel & Paul Vincent
Don't feel bad, you're not the only one who was surprised to learn that Vin Diesel has a twin brother! That's right, the infamous actor has a right-hand man, and while he didn't take to the big screen like his bro, Paul certainly has a long list of achievements under his belt.
While Vin was busy driving at supersonic speeds, Paul, his a fraternal twin brother, began working his way to the top of the list as a film editor. He has expressed to Vin that he enjoys his time behind the camera more than being in front of it, but, love for cinema alone has made the twins' bond even stronger!
Tia & Tamera Mowry
You may recognize these stunning identical twins from their hit show, Sister, Sister! Tia and Tamera Mowry gained fame as young women, but have since used their names to make a meaningful impact on our world. The two did everything together throughout their lives; they even studied psychology at Pepperdine University together!
Tia and Tamera knew they had all the support they needed when they became mama's side by side. They created Need Brand, a company focused on making essentials for new moms, like stretchmark cream, for example. Their reality show, Tia & Tamera, followed them and their families on their entrepreneurial and motherhood journeys.
Rami & Sami Malek
Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek has an identical twin brother named Sami, and unsurprisingly, he's just as gorgeous. If you didn't already know, don't fret! Sami doesn't have any public social media accounts, so when Rami brought him to the 2019 Golden Globes, many (including us) were understandably shocked.
Despite their 4-minute-apart rivalry, they settled by working in different industries. Sami opted for a more quiet route in education, while Rami hit the stage. However, they joined forces on occasion. Once, Rami helped Sami by giving a monologue in his place, hoping it would get his twin some extra points in class. What a bro!
Scarlett & Hunter Johansson
The idea of a second Johansson had us on the edge of our seats, so we're not surprised if you were too! Scarlett is the older sister to her twin brother, Hunter, by a mere three minutes. She is usually an actress to steal the show, but it turns out that Hunter bargained for his place in the spotlight too, just a different kind.
While Scarlett joined and began to take over Hollywood, Hunter Johansson entered the world of politics and found his knack too. He even served as a campaign adviser for former President, Barak Obama, back in 2008. Talk about noteworthy careers in the family! The twins aren't rivals but supporters of each other's success.
Parker & Christopher Posey
These twins are similar in many ways, but their career paths couldn't be more different. Parker took to film and television, being dubbed as the "Queen of the Indies," on her way to becoming a now-accomplished actress. Her bro Christopher took a nearly opposite route and became a lawyer, practicing in Atlanta, Georgia.
The two bond over the serious moments that their career paths require, but they know how to relax and have fun all the same. In her book, Parker Posey: You're on an Airplane, Parker explained, "I’m a character actor because I come from a family of characters." These two seem to have figured out how to be friends and siblings!
Barbara & Jenna Bush
You may have heard of fraternal twins Barbara and Jenna Bush when they famously became the only twins to ever live in the White House. When their father, George W. Bush, was elected President in 2001, it wasn't long before they were dubbed "The First Twins."
Even though the twins couldn't be more different from each other, both in looks and personality, Barbara once told Vanity Fair, "We have our own, unspoken language." She continued, "A look that makes one of us fall on the floor laughing or the slight inflection in our voice that conveys everything." Must be a twin thing!
Linda & Leslie Hamilton
Did you know that Linda Hamilton, lead in the Terminator movie, has an identical twin sister? Unlike Linda, Leslie isn’t an actor. She was actually never interested in having a Hollywood career. Instead, Leslie works as a nurse, which must take her patients by surprise to see the Terminator actress walking around the hospital.
However, Leslie did get her chance to shine when the filming crew of Terminator 2: Judgement Day needed a body double for Linda. Obviously, they asked none other than Linda's literal double, Leslie, who did end up serving as her twin's double in the 1991 film.
Shawn & Aaron Ashmore
We've seen Shawn Ashmore in a ton of movies, or, was that Aaron? Was that Shawn in Smallville? And Aaron in the X-Men series? We'll explain. Actually, both twins, yes, that's right, identical twins Shawn and Aaron Ashmore have both had roles on Smallville, together no less! It's no wonder we've been confused.
Aaron has kept himself busy as the lead in Killjoys. At the same time, Shawn gained fame for his role as Iceman in the X-Men series, followed by a busy schedule filming for several television shows such as Quantum Break and Relationship Status. The twins are certainly making their name known. Now we have to remember who's who.
Judy & Joselin Reyes
These beautiful twin sisters are both actresses. Judy became well known for her role in Scrubs, while Joselin gained fame through her part in Law & Order: SVU. Joselin might be the less-known of the sisters, but that didn't mean she missed out on the spotlight! She appeared alongside twin Judy as her onscreen sister in Scrubs.
The kind-eyed twins have supported each other's success throughout the years, from landing television shows to movies. Although the two grew up with three other siblings, they managed to create an unbreakable bond throughout the years that has been said to stand strong today. Way to go, ladies!
Charlotte & Samantha Ronson
Identical twins Charlotte and Samanta Ronson have warmed our hearts with the ways they talk about each other. In an Instagram post for their birthday, Charlotte once said, "So lucky to have you as my bff in utero. I couldn't imagine life without you. I love you to the moon and back!" How awesome to see these siblings so close?
While Charlotte's career path led her to design, Samantha's turned to music. This proved to be a great choice for Sam, as she soon became a popular DJ! The two have always been similar yet different. Charlotte once said, "We were always super close, and [Sam] was a lot more smiley, outgoing. I was a lot more quiet and serious."
Brittany & Cynthia Daniel
Twins Brittany and Cynthia Daniel seem to be attached at the hip, as it looks as if they do almost everything together! "Nothing is better when another person really knows you on a soul level," the pair recently wrote on their Instagram pages. The two have matching hair, necklaces, and clothes; face shape and smile to boot!
There's no known rivalry between them related to who is older. Instead, they have focused on how much fun they have doing life together. They began their modeling careers side by side when they were just eleven years old. And later, they managed to land roles together as the Doublemint Twins in commercials for Doublemint gum.
Dylan & Cole Sprouse
Dylan and Cole Sprouse gained fame from being exactly who they are, twins! As teens, they starred in their own television show, The Suite Life with Zack & Cody, followed by Suite Life On Deck. Despite Dylan holding a 15 minute lead in the game of life over Cole, the two shared everything from the spotlight to their dreamy eyes.
According to MSN, the twins were the wealthiest children alive in 2007, but they didn't let that get to their heads. Since sticking together to attend New York University in 2010, they took on more independent ventures in recent years. Today, they prioritize their family and appear on each other's social media from time to time.
Andrea & Deidre Hall
Days of Our Lives actress Deidre Hall doesn't just have a sibling on screen, she has a real-life twin sister named Andrea! Seemingly natural for twins to share, both sisters have careers as soap opera actresses and even starred together in an episode of Days when Deidre played the jealous twin sister of Andrea's character.
The two look so identical that we can hardly tell them apart! With their carbon-copied hairstyles, similar face shapes, and button noses, we would need to pay extra attention to their daily outfits to tell them apart! What do you think? Would you be able to know who is who if you saw them on television together?
Tiki & Ronde Barber
The NFL was also blessed to have twin players in their stadiums at the same time! Tiki Barber is a former offensive player for the New York Giants who became an on-air television personality in a turn of career events. He shared a few heartfelt yet competitive run-ins with his brother, Ronde, throughout his years on the field.
Across the fifty-yard line was Ronde, who dedicated his sixteen-year professional career to playing defense for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He soon followed in his brother's footsteps and also became a broadcaster. With their dashing smiles and strong facial features, do you think you could tell them apart on television?
Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen
You got it, dude! Fraternal twins May-Kate and Ashley Olsen started their careers when they were still in diapers. They hit the Hollywood scene on the set of Full House before they began careers as successful business women. This led them to create their own clothing line, Elizabeth and James, named after their older siblings!
Do you remember when they sported front bangs? Over the years, the green-eyed beauties decided against partaking in the Fuller House reboot's Hollywood family reunion. Instead, Ashley ventured away from acting while Mary-Kate focused on her fashion business.
José & Ozzie Canseco
Another set of twins to take over the sports world together is José and Ozzie Canseco. The two were always a team and even made MLB history together! The brothers always had each other's backs. At times, they attended book signings and appearances in each other's places, all in good fun, of course.
Swapping places got them in trouble in 2011 when José sent Ozzie to take his place at a celebrity boxing match, oops! The two look so similar; it's no wonder they had gotten away with it before. What do you think? Would you be able to tell these jawlines apart at a press conference or public event?
Jill & Jacqueline Hennessy
These twins are no stranger to the screen. Canadian-born Jill and Jacqueline embarked on different paths that led them to take over international entertainment industries one TV show at a time. Jill became a U.S. based actress and musician. You might have seen her in one of three seasons of Law & Order as Claire Kincaid.
After she dabbled in acting like her womb-mate, Jacqueline began a career as a Canadian journalist and television host for Medical Intelligence. Most recently, she landed the gig of narrator for HGTV's Love It or List It. With growing fame in two countries, Jill and Jacqueline are beautifully taking over the screen!
Jason & Jeremy London
Identical Hollywood stars Jason and Jeremy London quickly became the bad boys of the movies in their prime. You may remember seeing Jason in Dazed and Confused, or Jeremy in Party of Five, or 7th Heaven. Jeremy appeared in some gigs since his big roles, but has had a shifted outlook on his goals since entering dadhood in 2006.
Their reputations as charming men with dreamy blue eyes remain true to this day, don't you think? The London's have stayed a bit removed from the spotlight since starting families of their own, but they have managed to incorporate smaller roles into their schedules here and there to keep them in the Hollywood-know.
Ashton & Michael Kutcher
Did you know that Ashton Kutcher had a twin?! Michael is Ashton's fraternal twin, but the That '70s Show star has said that he had learned more from his bro than he could have ever imagined. While Ashton took over the big screen, Michael made an equally as successful career for himself in motivational speaking.
There is no doubt that their brotherhood runs deep. Throughout the past few years, the twins have both become fathers to some adorable kiddos. If they thought sharing a womb brought them close, becoming a pair of dads with kids around the same age amplified their bond to be stronger than ever!
Karen & Kate Elson
Famous model and singer-songwriter Karen Elson shares her good looks with her twin sis, Kate. Like her fraternal other half, Kate has modeled for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, and Prada. More recently, however, she has explored a career in short movie film-making!
Although the twins grew up in Manchester, Karen moved to London to pursue her modeling career when they were sixteen. But, distance didn't keep them from spending quality time together, as Karen told the Sydney Morning Herald, "I see my sister often." We have to ask: aside from their matching eyes, do you see their resemblance?
Harry & Luke Treadaway
Equipped with their sparkling blue eyes, identical twins Harry and Luke Treadaway made their professional debut together in 2005. They hit the big screen as conjoined twin brothers in Brothers Of The Head. During filming, they spent fifteen hours a day harnessed together, which probably gave them womb-vibes all over again!
They have become more of their own people in their later lives, even though they still share the same gorgeous heads of hair. In 2018, Luke played Dr. Arthur Calgary in BBC One's Ordeal by Innocence. Staying in the spotlight as well, Harry played Roddy Llewellyn in the third season of Netflix's The Crown in 2019.
Monique & Jocelyne Lamoureux
Blue-eyed beauties Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux grew up in a hockey-filled home. This led them to become a pair of players who are hard to miss out on the ice. Monique and Jocelyne have both earned three Olympic medals and seven World Championship medals in their careers so far. Way to go, ladies!
Talk about twinning! From game winnings to motherhood, they have made the news again and again. In 2018 the two announced that they were both pregnant at the same time. "Like everything else in life, we're doing it together," said Jocelyne. We can't wait to see how close the blonde beauty's kiddos grow up to be!
Paul & Peter Allen Vogt
These hilarious twins have popularized the Vogt name across the entertainment industry. Paul, an actor who specializes in impressions, doubles as a comedian. His other half, Peter Allen, became well known for his appearance in Princess Diaries 2 and Valentine's Day. Wherever you may have seen them, we're sure it was funny!
The identical twins' list of shows and movies has made them quite the accomplished family. Did you know these comics were twin brothers? Are you dreaming of a comedy special that features both of them? We sure are! For now, we'll just have to look forward to Paul's role in the upcoming 2021 movie, My Babysitter the Super Hero.
Charles & Max Carver
The Carver boys had each other's backs since the start. The twins starred in Teen Wolf together and later landed co-gigs on Desperate Housewives. Their roles set them up to act as twin characters and young Hollywood heartthrobs, Porter and Preston Scavo. This was no challenge for the two, as they had plenty of life experience.
Now in their early 30's, the Carver's have racked up a laundry list of shows they've acted as twins on together, including those mentioned before and HBO's The Leftovers. But, we really can't blame producers for wanting both of them on their sets. Just look at those twinning smiles!
Nikki & Brie Bella
Nikki and Brie Bella have been gracing our TV screens together for years since they both established successful WWE careers. When the Bella twins first made their wrestling debut, they frequently switched places mid-fight, as they're essentially the epitome of identical twins.
Nikki and Brie have been one another's support system since the beginning, and they've nearly done everything in their lives together. From attending the same college to establishing joint WWE careers and even being pregnant simultaneously, the Bellas are proudly #twinning always.
Nicholas Brendon & Kelly Donovan
At first glance, you might be wondering why these twins have different last names. Truthfully, their last name is Schultz, but both Nicolas and Kelly use their middle names as last names in Hollywood. Nicholas starred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer during his younger years, and Kelly landed a role in Strange Hearts.
Because of their identical appearances, Kelly acted as Nicholas' double in Buffy the Vampire Slayer a few times. Some scenes probably wouldn't even have been possible without participation from both twins. Evidently, that's one of the perks of having a twin; There's always someone who has your back!
Malika & Khadijah Haqq
You might know these beauties as reality star Khloe Kardashian's BFFs, but the Haqq twins have been in the spotlight for quite a while now, even before their days on KUWTK. Both Malika and Khadijah starred in the film Sky High in 2005 and then appeared in ATL a year later.
Many people struggle to tell Malika and Khadijah apart, considering they have nearly all of the same gorgeous features. Today, the Haqqs frequently collaborate on photoshoots, vlogs, and many other projects. They're incredibly close and take a great deal of pride in their coinciding careers.
Jonathan & Drew Scott
Identical twins Jonathan and Drew Scott took HGTV by storm back in 2011 when they launched their reality show, Property Brothers. The two real estate moguls help potential home buyers search for their dream house and then renovate it within a strict budget.
The Scott brothers have proven to be an excellent duo and now have multiple other shows including, Brother vs. Brother and Property Brothers: Forever at Home. It may be hard to tell Jonathan and Scott apart at first glance, but when you look closely, you'll notice some differing features.
Lucas & Marcus Dobre
Lucas and Marcus Dobre first rose to fame from the impressive videos they created on Vine. People were amazed by their identical appearances plus their incredible dance moves. They eventually took their talents to YouTube and have been working side by side ever since.
Believe it or not, there are two more Dobre brothers, Darius and Cyrus, who are also in the entertainment and vlogging industry. Darius and Cyrus also look pretty similar, but Lucas and Marcus are the only twins in the family. Together, the Dobre gang creates unique content, with the twins leading them to the top.
Daryl & Evan Sabara
Both Daryl and Evan Sabara started acting during their childhood, starring in Spy Kids together in 2001. The Sabara twins were born just one minute apart, and they've been extremely close since the start. Today, neither of them acts as much as they used to, but they're both living their best lives.
Daryl's married to Meghan Trainor and recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world. Evan lives more of a private life these days, as he preferred to leave his days of fame in the past. The Sabara twins may not be identical, but they still make quite the dynamic duo.
Peyton & Spencer List
Disney Channel star Peyton List isn't the only one from her family to grow up in the spotlight. She has a twin brother, Spencer, who's also done his fair share of acting. The List twins both debuted their acting careers around the same, but with entirely different productions.
Peyton's mostly appeared in Disney shows, while Spencer's first significant role was in the Fox series Fringe, followed by the horror movie Bereavement. Peyton's extremely grateful for her built-in best friend, saying, "We can always go to each other with anything, and I trust him more than anyone."
Munro & Thomas Chambers
You might recognize Canadian actor Munro Chambers from his role as Eli in Degrassi, which he played for over a decade. Munro's twin, Thomas, also has a creative mind, working as an artistic director and choreographer. However, he prefers to stay behind the camera, unlike his brother.
These brothers continuously support one another; Munro tweets about his brother's impressive accomplishments whenever he has the chance. Even when Munro's in the middle of a major production or Thomas has his own show coming up, they make time to spend together, whether it's going to a hockey game or just hanging out.
Ethan & Grayson Dolan
Ethan and Grayson Dolan are pretty much a package deal, known as the Dolan Twins. Like the Dobre twins, they rose to fame on Vine and have created original content ever since. Today, they frequently collaborate with other influencers such as Jeffree Star, Emma Chamberlain, and many others.
The 21-year-old twins have a lot in common, but most noticeably, their matching good looks, which they frequently show off on social media. The Dolan Twins have also become TikTok famous, dancing their way to the top any chance they get. These two never seem to miss a photo op.
Kiefer & Rachel Sutherland
Kiefer Sutherland's been acting for decades, with leading roles in The Lost Boys, 24, and many other movies and TV shows. He has a famous twin sister, Rachel Sutherland, who's also established herself in the entertainment industry, but can rarely be seen in front of the camera.
Rachel's a successful TV production manager and has worked on shows such as Lost Girl, Saving Hope, and more. And it didn't come as much of a surprise when the Sutherland twins took Hollywood by storm, considering their father, Donald Sutherland, is a Golden Globe awarded actor.
