Here’s a quick one, for you Fast and Furious lovers. Did you know Vin Diesel has a twin brother? Born Mark Sinclair Vincent, most of us do not even know him by any other name than Vin Diesel, or Dominic Toretto, but he does have a twin brother; a fraternal twin named Paul Vincent. Paul is in fact a film director, so we can assume the two of them had some fun listening to movies while still in their mother’s womb.
We know for sure this one was a shocker for you, as it was/will be for most people out there. Unknown to a lot of people, quite a number of celebrities have twins, some who choose to avoid the limelight, and others who cannot steer clear of it.
