Top 10 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Had A Twin



These are the dynamic duos of celebrity culture. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Had a Twin.


For this list, we’re focusing on celebrity twins who usually don’t come up in pop culture conversation. For example, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen usually go hand in hand.

#10: Eva Green

As one of the more voluptuous international bombshells of our time, French actress Eva Green made her cinematic debut in Bernardo Bertolucci’s NC-17 film “The Dreamers,” and of course, she played Vesper Lynd in the first Daniel Craig Bond film, “Casino Royale.” And while both films have an Italian connection, it’s her twin sister Joy that went all in by marrying an Italian count, living far away from the glitz and glamour of the film industry. It may sound like a good life, but Joy seems perfectly capable of lighting up the screen just like her slightly older sis.


#9: Linda Hamilton

Remember that tight Sarah Connor bod from “Terminator 2: Judgment Day? Yeah, there is actually two of her in real life. Linda Hamilton's identical twin sister Leslie has the same grace and beauty, but aside from a brief acting career, and we do mean brief, Leslie embarked on a career as a nurse. For years, Linda has long excited the fanboys of the Terminator franchise; just imagine if the sisters Hamilton had made a feature film together.


#8: Nicholas Brendon

He’s not quite a megastar, but you damn well know who this guy is thanks to his long-standing role on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” We all know that TV directors use the occasional trick for narratives or production, and by casting Nicholas Brendon, they also received access to his identical bro Kelly Donovan, who was born three minutes earlier and stepped in for his sibling every once in a while. These guys are impossible to differentiate, so it kind of makes you wonder who was playing Xander Harris all along, right?


#7: Joseph Fiennes

Out of the six Fiennes siblings, two of them are twins - and it ain’t Joseph and Ralph. You’ve seen the latter in “Schindler’s List” and “The English Patient” and the former has earned acclaim in recent years on “American Horror Story.” But it’s Joe that grew up with an identical twin named Jacob, who ultimately became a conservationist, even if he might’ve been well versed in the art of conversation like his movie star bros.


#6: Gisele Bündchen

Buckle up, fellas, because this one could be too much. Known as “the Boobs from Brazil,” Gisele Bundchen has long been one of the world’s most popular supermodels, and she even married the American icon that is Tom Brady. Not only does Gisele have five sisters, she actually has a fraternal twin by the name of Patricia, who was born 5 minutes after the iconic beauty. And as you probably could have guessed, she was blessed with some physical gifts like her sister. You can stop drooling now…


#5: Kiefer Sutherland

If this man ever struggles on set, and chances are he likely has, there’s a woman that can provide the appropriate color correction - and that woman is his younger sister of seven minutes, a post-production supervisor. When you look Kiefer and Rachel side by side, you just might be able to imagine the female twin as one of “The Lost Boys” – or should we say “The Lost Girls” - or perhaps even a feminine Jack Bauer. Whatever the case, it’s nice to have a sister in the industry and one that can provide professional help if need be.


#4: Vin Diesel

There are a number of magical qualities about this cinematic tough guy – the shaved head, the voice…the shaved head. And there’s always been a rumor circulating on the Interweb that THIS guy is Vin’s twin, even if he appears to be the mysterious long-lost bro of Art Garfunkel. But in 2015, Vin shared THIS photo of his film editor brother, Paul Vincent, so the rumors can be put to rest. He’s Diesel-approved, and he’s most certainly not who we thought he was.


#3: Alanis Morissette

Maybe this is the reason why Alanis Morissette had so much energy to let loose with her iconic 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill.” Alanis’ brother Wade also performs music, just not quite as aggressively - he’s a Yoga teacher and incorporates Sanskrit chants into his jams. You gotta differentiate yourself somehow, right? Not only is this guy the twin of a rock star, he also inspired Alanis to partly name her own child after him.


#2: Ashton Kutcher

No matter how old this star of the silver and small screen becomes, we’ll always associate him with the word “DUDE…” and probably “bro” as well. But all joking aside, Ashton Kutcher seems like a positive guy, perhaps because he’s the fraternal twin of a motivational speaker named Michael. They’re just a couple of guys from the Midwest, and each of them has made their mark on the world in their own unique ways.


Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
Giovanni Ribisi
Jon Heder
Samantha Ronson
Rami Malek
Duffy


#1: Scarlett Johansson

Just imagine if there was another Scar-Jo – a twin sister with the same appeal and talent necessary to become a worldwide sex symbol. Well, keep dreaming, because, while Scarlett Johansson does have a twin, it’s not who you might expect. Meet…Hunter Johansson, a man blessed with enough charm and wit to become a campaign adviser for Barack Obama, just with a different physical makeup than his glamorous sister who entered the world three minutes ahead of him. They both have badass names and both seem to be living badass lives.
