You Won’t Believe These Celebs Have A Twin Sibling
You know what it’s like with twins; one’s traditionally evil, and the other is good – but they often look alike!
Okay, so we’re totally generalising and the truth is actually a little bit stranger: See, it turns out that there are numerous celebrities out there who actually have a twin sibling! The remarkable thing is that many fans aren’t even aware that their favourite celeb actually has a duplicate.
We do have to wonder whether being the twin of a major star fills one with a sense of envy or even jealousy. After all, it can’t be easy living life in the shadow of a famous twin! Let’s take a look at 10 celebrities who have a twin sibling.
Alanis And Wade Morissette
Everyone has heard of Alanis Morissette. She was the singer who got naked with one hand in her pocket in the mid-nineties, before releasing the ultimate vengeance song “You Oughta Know”, which catapulted her into mainstream success.
But few people might realise that she actually has a twin sibling, Wade Morissette, who is also a singer-songwriter. Wade and Alanis were born back in June 1974, and both forged careers for themselves as musicians. While Alanis is certainly the most famous twin, Wade harbour no grudges and cites her as his main inspiration. He plays piano, guitar, harmonium, djembe and tabla. Nice.
Vin Diesel and Paul Vincent
Vin Diesel has a twin sibling, but you’d never know it because no one ever talks about him, no one’s ever seen him, and there are no photo’s of him published on the Internet.
We assume that he’s either really, REALLY private, or he’s the archetypal Evil Twin that had to be locked up for the good of mankind.
And we imagine it was Vin who heroically locked him up. What a hero.
Linda and Leslie Hamilton
You know who Linda Hamilton is. She played Sarah Connor in The Terminator 1 & 2, suffering a mental breakdown after she was told that her son was basically responsible for saving the planet from invading machines.
You also know her from all that other stuff she’s been in.
You know her twin sister, Leslie Hamilton, too. You do! You know her! She played her sister’s double in The Terminator. Remember now? Of course you do.
Ashton And Michael Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher is now one of Hollywood’s most famous sons. Years after playing a stoner in smash comedy Dude, Where’s My Car?, he went on to date Demi Moore, before replacing Charlie Sheen in hit U.S. sitcom Two And A Half Men. He’s currently dating Mila Knus.
Ashton’s twin brother, Michael, is less famous around the world. He suffers from Cerebral Palsy and is a philanthropist. A major part of his work is centred around lobbying governments to fund and research the aforementioned disease, which makes him as much as a winner as Ashton on our books.
Gisele And Patricia Bundchen
Gisele Bundchen is one of the world’s most famous (and most leggy) supermodels. Now 35, she has been the highest paid model in the whole wide world since 2004! Moreover, Forbes listed her as the 89th most powerful woman in the world in 2014, a position she still retains. She has dated a number of hunks, including the always suave Leonardo Di Caprio.
Gisele’s sister Patricia must be wondering how on earth one twin siblings gets all the breaks in the model industry when they both, essentially, look the same! Call it luck, or call it the fact that Vogue magazine probably thought it’d be too weird to have two supermodels straddling their covers that look exactly the same (readers would probably freak out), but whatever you call it, gorgeous Patricia is unlucky.
Jon and Dan Heder
Pretty much everyone with a funny bone has a soft spot for Jon Heder. Even if you didn’t dig cult-comedy Napoleon Dynamite, you probably laughed your head off at his ice-skating routine in Blades of Glory. Although he hasn’t quite had the silver screen success as some of his contemporaries, such as Will Ferrell and Vince Vaughn, he is just at home doing voices and producing as he is acting silly onscreen.
Jon’s brother Dan is also involved in the film industry, though he prefers to remain hidden behind the cameras as a visual effects dude. The pair were born in Colorado in 1977, and share a love of Scouting with their father. Jon currently holds the rank of Eagle Scout.
Nicholas Brendon and Kelly Donovan
If you loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you’ll remember Nicholas who played Xander.
What you might not have known is that his twin brother Kelly was his stand-in.
Unfortunately, Twin Law means one twin gets all the glory, and the other has to be his bro’s stand-in. It’s unfair, cruel and downright mean. But that’s Twin Law for you.
Kiefer and Rachel Sutherland
Jack Bauer – um, I mean Kiefer Sutherland – is awesome. There is no denying it. Each year, he’s saving the lives of everyone in the USA, protecting the President from imminent disaster AND battling personal problems at the same time, such as addiction and the death of his wife.
But while Jack Bauer is busy saving America from nuclear warfare, terrorist attacks and leaked viruses, his sister Rachel Sutherland-Bauer is busy working in TV production in Canada. Sounds kinda mundane in comparison, but that’s the way the luck of the draw works when you’re twins. Hey, you don’t both get to save the world!
Scarlett and Hunter Johansson
The Johansson siblings’ parents definitely had great taste in names, and we’d have to argue that Scarlett and Hunter are the best named pair on this list.
(Certainly better than Jon and Dan. I mean, what gives Jon and Dan’s mom and dad?!)
Scarlett’s career in Hollywood has taken her from the heights of starring alongside Bill Murray in Lost In Translation to the heights of starring opposite Joaquin Phoenix as a machine in Her. In other words, her career has just got better and better.
Hunter, meanwhile, has had to contend with being the lesser-known twin, despite his radiant name. He’s been spotted on several red carpets alongside his sister, and although he prefers politics to movies, he acted alongside her in Manny & Lo.
Aaron Carter and Angel Carter
Aaron is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter. Angel is his twin sister who, when she isn’t busy being a twin, doubles up as a model. Both have winning smiles, winning teeth, and winning bone structure.
Don’t you just envy the Carter clan?
