Hooked on the extraordinary stories of our documentary Extreme Twins?
We’ve tracked down some more familiar faces who also have some amazing twin siblings. Feast your eyes on our top celebrity pics. Some of them you know, some of them you might not, and some of them will most definitely amaze you with their similarities!
MARY KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN
We all fell in love with the cute TV duo in Full House, but who knew these famous siblings (or “Monkey performers” as Mary Kate once referred to them as) would turn into one of the biggest teen money makers? The actors turned into mini moguls, launching their own clothing line and tween merchandise earning them mega bucks! Not bad.
ASHTON AND MICHAEL KUTCHER
Ashton Kutcher and his fraternal twin brother’s lives couldn’t be more different. The actor’s brother was born with cerebal palsy and at the age of 13, underwent a life-saving transplant. As a result, Ashton, who naturally slipped into the protective role, kept himself busy and away from his stressful home. “I didn't want to come home and find more bad news about my brother,” the actor tells. Needless to say, Ashton now suports his brother any way he can.
VIVIENNE AND KNOX JOLIE PITT
French-born Knox and Vivienne Jolie Pitt (aka Brad and Angelina’s cute biological pair) might look identical, but according to daddy dearest, the youngsters are showing very different personalities. “Viv is proving to resemble Ange in spirit, attitude and physicality,” the Oceans Eleven star reveals. And as for little Knox, “He’s a bit of me.” Either way, no doubt those tots will be thanking their folks for their good-lookin’ genes!
SCARLETT AND HUNTER JOHANSSON
Scarlett is a regular on the sexiest women polls worlwide, and we’re happy to report, so too is her twin brother Hunter! But not only has the actress’s twin bro been named “Hot Bachelor” by People magazine in 2008, he’s also had an influence in history too. Hunter assisted US President Barack Obama to his role as leader after campaigning for him in Denver. What a pair of good lookin’ do-gooders!
ALANIS AND WADE MORISSETTE
Alanis and twin brother Wade both share a love of music. While Alanis has hit the big time with her pipes, Wade found a way to use music through meditation and yoga (also a love of the songbird). Wade joined a yoga pilgrimage in 2005, which served as inspiration for his debut album Sargam Scales of Music. Sounds inspiring...
JOEL AND BENJI MADDEN
The eyeliner, the tats, the grungy get-up... Nope, there’s no mistaking these two Good Charlotte rockers are identical twins – except for maybe Nicole Richie hanging off the arm of one of them! And despite being the married one with two kids, Benji (who was born five minutes before Joel) insists h’s the one who keeps bro Joel in line. “I’m the more responsible one,” he insists.
GISELE AND PATRICIA BUNDCHEN
No one wants to be the twin of a worldwide supermodel, but lucky for Gisele’s twin sister, Patricia, she’s not so bad on the eyes either! Unlike her famous twin, Patricia prefers to keep a low profile – working as Gisele’s manager behind the scenes. And with the model being one of the highest paid in the world, she’s not doing a bad job of it, too!
KIEFER AND RACHEL SUTHERLAND
Who knew the 24 star had a twin sister? And one who works in the industry, no less! While her brother hit the bigtime in front of the camera, sister Rachel (who’s seven minutes younger) has made a career behind it, working as a post-production supervisor in TV and film in Toronto.
