Being a twin usually means sharing everything. It’s not uncommon to see young twins dressed in the same outfits or sporting the same hairstyle. Almost everyone thinks this is adorable, but as time goes on, it’s natural for twins to want to define themselves separately. After all, it can get pretty annoying when everyone expects twins to operate as one person in two bodies. Unless of course, they can make a profitable career by celebrating their similarities.
Most people are fascinated by identical twins. To be fair, it’s pretty astounding to see two people who look exactly alike. Some twins even have similar mannerisms or vocal makeups. It’s no surprise that Hollywood would be just as obsessed with twins as the average person. Some twins have even made a name for themselves by using their smarts, good looks and talent to become even more noticeable. Of course, many of these twin sets have not been without their share of scandal and sensational stories. That’s part of what makes them topics of conversation. There are some twins who have actually secured their place in Hollywood by having a squeaky clean image, and that has proven to be a lucrative strategy as well. Here are 10 sets of the sexiest twins in Hollywood.
10. Felicia and Fallon King
Felicia and Fallon were part of the R&B group Cherish, with their sisters Neosha and Farrah. The King family is originally from Illinois and moved to Atlanta to start their music careers. The group made their debut when they were featured on rapper Da Brat’s single ‘In Love Wit Chu’. Cherish made their official debut with their single ‘Miss P’. The song had minimal success on the charts, but the girls continued to sing and even lent their vocal talents to The Power-puff Girls Movie. They later released a single entitled ‘Do It To It’. This time, their single reached number 4 on the Billboard 200, and Cherish released their debut album, Unappreciated. They followed up with their sophomore album The Truth, which featured the single ‘Killa’, which was a top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
9. Camilla and Rebecca Rosso
The Rosso twins are singers and actresses. They have appeared on the Disney show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and also starred in the film Legally Blondes, which was released on DVD only and was a sequel to the popular film Legally Blonde. Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon produced Legally Blondes. Camilla, who goes by Milly, is one minute younger than her sister Rebecca (Becky), and the twins also have three other siblings. The Rosso twins were discovered when they were at a live taping of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody as audience members.

Camilla and Rebecca were also members of the singing group The Rosso Sisters, with their sisters Lola and Georgina, and were managed by the father of the Jonas Brothers.
8. Deidre and Andrea Hall
These veteran actresses have both made a name for themselves by playing dramatic roles in soap operas. They even play twins on screen! Deidre is best known for her role as Marlena Evans on Days of Our Lives, and played the role for over 30 years. She is one of the most notable characters on the show, particularly because of the outrageous storylines surrounding her. Andrea played Deidre’s twin on the soap in the late 1970s and early 1980s, before retiring from this genre of acting. She returned to the soap between 2000 and 2001 to play Marlena Evans’ look-a-like, a character named Hattie Adams.
Deidre and Andrea appeared in a number of printed advertisements for the Hudson Twin-H-Power engine in the early 1950s. Deidre originally took up acting as a way to earn money until she could become a psychologist. She soon realized that acting was her career. After retiring from acting, Andrea married a restaurant manager in Virginia and began teaching special education.

These golden-haired twins were the stars of Sweet Valley High, a television adaptation of the popular book series. Brittany and Cynthia also starred in the Wayans Brothers cinematic creation, White Chicks. The Daniel twins made their film debut in 1995, starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Basketball Diaries. The girls were signed to the Ford Agency at 11 and began modeling together. Cynthia has since retired from the business and is now a photographer. As children, the two also starred in the 1989 sitcom, The New Leave It to Beaver. Aside from the movies the twins appeared in together, Brittany is known for her role as hot football wife Kelly Pitts on The Game, where she once starred with Tia Mowry, who is also a twin.

The twins hail from Canada, and once starred as twin call girls in the 1988 film Dead Ringers, where they both made their debuts. Gillian Anderson, the actress who is perhaps best known for her role as Scully on The X-Files, stated that Jill was actually in the running for the role.
5. Malika and Khadijah Haqq
These stunning beauties were featured in the film ATL, starring rapper and actor T.I. The twins also appeared in the movie Sky High. Chances are you’ve seen Malika on a few Kardashian reality shows, since she’s Khloe’s best friend, and sometimes her assistant. Khadijah is married to Bobby McCray, a professional athlete who plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and previously played for the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles. The pair were married in 2010 and have one son. Aside from acting, the Haqq twins have appeared in numerous modeling campaigns. The pair are also pictured at a number of celebrity events, due to their own accomplishments, and their family friendship with the Kardashians.
4. Patricia and Gisele Bundchen
You’ll likely recognize Gisele’s name immediately. She’s the hot Brazilian model married to football star Tom Brady. She previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio; oh, and she’s been the highest paid model in the world since 2004. There’s a good chance you’ve seen her in a Victoria’s Secret ad or two. Gisele’s twin sister Patricia, is also a model. While the two are fraternal, they are equally beautiful. Patricia has even used her organizational skills (and love for her sister) to become Gisele’s manager. While Patricia is technically younger (by five minutes), she’s clearly taken the leadership role, which contributes greatly to Gisele’s success. Obviously the pair work very well together.
3. Nikki and Brie Bella
Nikki and Brie Bella, whose real names are Nicole and Brianna, are arguably the hottest wrestling tag team there is. They are the reigning two-time WWE Diva Champions. Before making it to the WWE, the twins competed in the Florida Championship Wrestling. Brie made her debut on WWE in 2008. As part of her persona, she would go under the ring, and come with renewed energy. Later it was revealed that Brie was switching places with her twin, and the two started officially wrestling together. Brie won the 2011 WWE Divas Championship, and Nikki won the same award a year later. After these wins, the twins left WWE for a while, but returned in 2013. The Bella twins also began starring on the E! reality show Total Divas, in 2013.
2. Tia and Tamera Mowry
You remember Tia and Tamera as the bubbly twins who were adopted by different parents and reunited during their adolescent years on the 1990s sitcom Sister, Sister. The girls are also trained dancers, and were in a singing group before their television debut. Their acting careers certainly didn’t end after Sister, Sister. Tamera starred in the Lifetime drama series Strong Medicine, and ABC Family’s Roommates. Tia had a lead role as Melanie on the show The Game, and now stars on Instant Mom. Both women are now TV hosts as well. Tamera is a co-host on the wildly popular daytime talk show The Real with fellow celebs Adrienne Bailon, Tamar Braxton, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai. Tia hosts the Cooking Channel show Tia Mowry at Home, where she prepares healthy and creative meals.
1. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen
The Olsen Twins have long been an entertainment fixture. They made their debut in the late 1980s when they both starred as one adorable little toddler named Michelle on Full House. Those bright, round eyes and blonde ponytails were even cuter when “Michelle” would say catchy one-liners like “you got it, dude” and ” you’re in big trouble, mister.” The twins, who are actually fraternal, went on to be pretty successful after the show. They’ve had their own fashion line for years and have starred in several movies together. Their siblings have also followed in their lucrative footsteps. Their sister Elizabeth Olsen, is also a talented actress.
