We love things that are odd and don’t come around too often, and that’s why twins have been a staple in Hollywood over the years. Some of these twins have risen to fame alongside one another, acting in the same films and TV shows, and working on the same projects with one another. On the other hand, there are other famous twins that started their own careers and made their claim to fame separately, but we still recognize them as a famous duo. There are also times that we have no idea that a celebrity is a twin, and we’re shocked to find out that there are two of them. Although these twins are famous in their own right, doing some small acting gigs, or even working behind the scenes on things, we’re still shocked to see the famous resemblance.
Famous Hollywood twins prove that talent and passion for their work run in the family and we love to see them come together and work with one another. However, when it comes down to it, they might have the same face, the same genes, and other similar traits, but we’re not above picking a favorite between the two. Whether it’s the fact that they’ve starred in some of our favorite movies and TV shows, or stood up for causes that we believe in, we can definitely pick one, regardless of the talents they both have. These are 15 Celeb Twins Who Look The Same (But We’d Still Have No Problem Choosing).
15 Tia and Tamera Mowry - Tamera Wins
Sister, sister! The twins from one of our favorite 90s sitcoms, Sister Sister, Tia and Tamera Mowry made their way into our homes as we watched them grow up for six years on their hit TV show. Once the show came to an end in 1999, the two went on to continue to further their acting careers, and starred in the hit Disney movie, Twitches, and its sequel, Twitches Too. They had their own acting careers as well, Tia acting in The Game and Tamera in Strong Medicine. The twins also went on to have their own reality show, however it only aired for three seasons. These days, Tamera is one of the hosts on The Real, while Tia hasn’t done much since starring in the comedy Instant Mom in 2015.
Although we love Tia and Tamera, and we loved them even more on Sister Sister, we’re going to have to keep it real, with Tamera.
14 Scarlett and Hunter Johansson - Scarlett Wins
Scarlett Johansson has starred in some of our favorite movies, including all of The Avengers movies, Captain America, and Iron Man 2, to name just a few, and she has been acting since she was just a little girl. Not many people know, however, that Scarlett has a twin brother named Hunter. Hunter wasn’t bitten by the acting bug like his sister, but that didn’t stop him from trying his hand at it. He starred in a movie called Manny & Lo that came out in 1996. Ironically enough, Scarlett also starred in the movie alongside him. Hunter has his own claim to fame, as he’s dabbled a lot in the political world. In fact, he worked on President Obama’s campaign and was a part of the team that helped him get reelected in 2008. He was also a community organizer for Manhattan Borough President, Scott Stringer in New York.
Hunter might have worked with President Obama on a super important campaign, however, we’re still going to have to go with Scarlett on this one. She’s a kick-ass actress that can take on the bad guys in any movie and we love it.
13 Dylan and Cole Sprouse - Cole Wins
When we think of Dylan and Cole Sprouse, we think of the zany twins from the hit Disney Channel show, The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody. However, the duo got their start alongside Adam Sandler in the comedy Big Daddy, playing Julian. Dylan and Cole had a long run on the Disney Channel, starring in The Suite Life from 2005 to 2008, and the Suite Life On Deck from 2008 to 2011 when the original show was revamped. They were the wealthiest child stars at the time, and people couldn’t get enough of them. Once their time on the Disney Channel came to an end, the two went to school at New York University. These days, Dylan is still staying away from acting and wants to open his own meadery. Cole, however returned to acting and is now starring as Jughead in the CW’s new hit TV show, Riverdale.
Although we love these two, we’re going to have to side with Cole. He’s been absolutely killing it as Jughead, and making us swoon. Sorry Dylan, this was definitely a tough one for us.
12 Giovanni and Marissa Ribisi - Giovanni Wins
Giovanni Ribisi has starred in some of our favorite movies over the years, including Saving Private Ryan, Avatar, Ted, and Boiler Room. However, many people would be surprised to know that Giovanni actually has a twin sister who is also famous. Marissa Ribisi is an actress that’s also starred in a number of movies including Dazed and Confused, The Brady Bunch Movie, and True Crime. The two have an impressive resume, and Giovanni’s only continues to grow, while Marissa seems to have taken a break from acting. The two practice Scientology, and Marissa is actually married to the famed musician Beck.
Although we love the diversity in acting between these twins, this time around, we have no problem choosing, and it has to go to Giovanni. How often can you say that you starred in the highest grossing film of all time? Sounds like a big deal to us!
11 Benji and Joel Madden - Joel Wins
Benji and Joel Madden are the heavily tattooed rockers of the hit band Good Charlotte. Joel is the lead singer of the band while Benji played guitar and supplied backup vocals, together, the band released six studio albums. The twins also have a side project called The Madden Brothers, where they’ve only released one album so far. Benji went on to do a lot of producing, writing, and singing backup vocals for artists such as 5 Seconds of Summer, Kalin and Myles, Three 6 Mafia, and Hilary Duff. He also went on to marry Cameron Diaz, and the two have been married since 2015. As for Joel, he’s been married to Nicole Richie since 2010, and the two have two children together. Joel is also involved in producing and songwriting, helping Benji out with 5 Seconds of Summer. He’s also heavily involved in charities, creating The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation with his wife in 2007. He’s also a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
Although we love both of these dudes, we have to love Joel a tiny bit more for his big heart.
10 Samantha and Charlotte Ronson - Samantha Wins
Most of us know Samantha Ronson as the DJ that briefly dated Lindsay Lohan way back in 2007, but she’s more than that. Samantha is a famous DJ, and plays at super high-profile parties and other gigs. She’s played at the Super Bowl, MTV’s New Year’s Eve, and The Sundance Film Festival, to name a few. She’s also known for playing private parties and other events for all kinds of celebrities. Not many people know that she has a twin sister, fashion designer Charlotte Ronson. Charlotte makes clothing for some very famous people, and has been featured in a number of fashion magazines. She’s also married to Fun. frontman, Nate Ruess, and the two welcomed a baby in February.
We love everything that these two have accomplished, but if we had to pick, we’d go with Samantha. Everyone loves a bada** female DJ that can spin some sick beats.
9 Jenna and Barbara Bush - Jenna Wins
Jenna and Barbara Bush are the fraternal twins of 43rd President, George W. Bush. Barbara Bush followed in her father and grandfather’s footsteps and decided to get involved in politics. She is an activist for health care, and co-founded a public health nonprofit called Global Health Corps. The nonprofit provides opportunities for people to help fight for global health equity. On the other hand, Jenna went in a different career direction than her fraternal twin. She is a journalist and became a correspondent for NBC’s Today in 2009. She contributes stories every now and then and also fills in as co-host on Today when needed.
These first daughters are some of the coolest we’ve seen and we love what they do. We’re going to have to choose Jenna, this time, because we love when she contributes to Today. Although, Barbara definitely kicks some serious butt while fighting for public health.
8 Jason and Jeremy London - Jeremy Wins
Jason and Jeremy London are two famous twins that are also actors. Jason is best known for playing Randall in Dazed and Confused. Jeremy has had a few more acting roles, appearing regularly on Party of Five, 7th Heaven, and I'll Fly Away. Both men have had their fair share of legal troubles, and other issues. Jeremy wound up on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. Jeremy also claimed that he was kidnapped and his kidnappers forced him to smoke crack. The bizarre accusation caused a riff between the twins and their family, however it came to light that the accusations were true.
These twins have had their ups and downs over the years, however we obviously have to choose Jeremy when it comes down to it. After all, he starred in some of our favorite shows and we appreciate the fact that he’s trying to get better.
7 Kiefer and Rachel Sutherland - Rachel Wins
We know Kiefer Sutherland as the bada** Jack Bauer on the hit show 24, however many people are surprised to know that the famed actor actually has a twin sister. Rachel Sutherland may not be acting in shows like 24 and Designated Survivor, but she works a lot behind the scenes, as a production manager. She’s worked on Saving Hope, Rookie Blue, and Harriet The Spy, just to name a few.
It would be obvious to pick Kiefer in this situation simply because he’s a bada** actor and plays some awesome characters that have saved the world on TV dozens of times. However, this time we’re going with Rachel because yes, Kiefer may be in front of the camera kicking butt, but Rachel is behind the camera making sure it looks good. You can’t have a Kiefer without a Rachel!
6 Laverne Cox and M Lamar - Laverne Wins
Many of us know Laverne Cox as the transgender actress that plays Sophia Burset on the hit Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black. Not many people know, however that she has a twin named M Lamar, who is a musician and an artist. M Lamar actually shared the spotlight with his sister, as he played her character Sophia in Orange Is The New Black before she transitioned. They auditioned a bunch of people for the role but once they found out Laverne had a twin, they had to have him on the show. It definitely made things more realistic and believable.
We love these twins but we’re going to have to go with Laverne on this one. It takes a lot to be a successful actress, but even harder to be a transgender actress in a world that is still learning to accept things. She fights for transgender rights and she’s a fantastic actress and we love her for it!
5 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen - Ashley Wins
We’ve seen the Olsen twins grow up right in front of our eyes, playing the cute and adorable Michelle Tanner on the hit show Full House. The two captured our hearts with every “You got it, dude!” The show ended in 1995, but that was only the beginning for the twins’ careers. The two started a huge empire, creating a number of TV shows, movies, and other merchandise. Unfortunately, they decided to put an end to their acting career in 2012, and haven’t appeared in any other acting projects since then. Instead, they turned to fashion, and have been flourishing in the industry.
When it comes to picking one, we have to admit we had a hard time making a decision — since the two did everything together. However, in their earlier Full House days, the two would always take turns playing Michelle. Cast members shared that Mary-Kate tended to take the more humorous scenes while Ashley did the serious and emotional ones. And well, we’re going to have to go with Ashley on this one, because she made us shed a tear on multiple occasions, sharing heart-to-hearts with Uncle Jesse. Sorry Mary-Kate!
4 Tiki and Ronde Barber - Ronde Wins
Tiki and Ronde Barber are most known for being professional football players. Ronde spent his entire career playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while Tiki played for the New York Giants for his. The pair had very successful careers, with Tiki making it to the Pro Bowl three times and becoming a correspondent for NBC in 2007 after his retirement, and Ronde making it to the Pro Bowl five times and winning the Super Bowl once. Tiki was involved in a cheating scandal, leaving his pregnant wife for Traci Lynn Johnson, and settling down with her.
For these two, we’re going with Ronde. It’s amazing to have a set of twins become professional football players, and not something that you see every day. However we’d like to leave the cheating scandal out of this. Besides, everyone loves a Super Bowl champion!
3 James and Oliver Phelps - James Wins
Everyone knows these two as the funny twins that are always pranking someone and getting into trouble from the Harry Potter series. Although it’s hard to tell them apart, James played the adorable Fred Weasley, while Oliver played George Weasley. The two starred in all of the Harry Potter films together, and made the world fall in love with their funny and happy-go-lucky antics. After Harry Potter they were involved in a few acting jobs here and there, but they were also heavily involved in charity, playing in celebrity soccer matches and donating to their favorite charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.
For these two, it was hard to pick since they’ve done everything together and how could we pick between Fred and George?! But we’ll have to go with James for now since he had to *spoiler alert* portray Fred’s horrible death. He made us cry and we were so sad to see him go.
2 Jon and Dan Heder - Jon Wins
Jon Heder rose to fame in the early 2000s by making his debut in the infamous and very strange movie, Napoleon Dynamite. Since then he shot to fame, acting in movies alongside actors like Will Ferrell, and starring in movies such as The Benchwarmers, Blades of Glory, and Mama’s Boy. As for Jon’s twin brother Dan, he did a tiny bit of acting himself, however he found that he liked the production side of things a little better. He got involved in visual effects, and has worked on some famous movies including The Edge of Tomorrow, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. He was also an animator on Monster House.
Sorry Dan, we’re going to have to go with Jon on this one. He’s hilarious and has starred in some of our favorite movies and how could you not pick Napoleon Dynamite?!
1 Vin Diesel and Paul Vincent - Vin Wins
Vin Diesel is known for playing some kicka** roles in movies like xXx, and The Fast and the Furious franchise, but many people didn’t know that he actually has a twin brother that’s been hidden from the world for a long time. Vin Diesel’s twin, Paul Vincent, is not his identical twin, but rather fraternal. Vin was born Mark Sinclair Vincent, but went by Vin Diesel when he was working as a bouncer, and would later make it his stage name when he became an actor. Not much is known about Paul, since he was hidden from us for so long. We do know that he is a film editor, so he’s also in the industry just like his twin.
Sorry Paul, but this choice is really easy for us. Vin has played some awesome characters in some of the most iconic movies today we’re going to have to go with him. Besides, his name is Vin freakin' Diesel!
