Watching kiddie twins lolloping around arm-in-arm in their identical outfits and hairstyles is a fascinating sight, cute even, and makes us secretly wish we had a twin too. Although we are content with the love/hate relationship we have with our siblings, having a twin would make for a fun relationship altogether. Think Salman Khan in Judwaa or Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3. Having your ultimate soulmate, your partner-in-crime, the one that completes you, who knew you before life as you know it began and were roomies with since birth; the thought itself is so fascinating.
Did you know in the central African country of Benin, 27.9 twins are born for every 1,000 births and it is the country with the highest twinning average? However, Asia has a much lower twinning rate of about eight per 1,000 births. Since having twins is such a huge deal, we give you a list of famous celebrities, who were lucky enough to be born as twins. We love to follow celebrities and their lives, so it is natural that we follow their families and siblings too. Here, let’s look at celebrities you did not know were twins:
Scarlett and Hunter Johansson
You must have seen Hunter accompanying Scarlett on the red carpet. What you probably don’t is that he is the younger twin and was seen in the 1996 film Manny and Lo along with his sister. He spends his time voicing his opinion for people in need and also doing political work. In 2008, he worked on Barack Obama’s campaign and re-election. In 2014, the twins also hosted the champions of Rockaway Hurricane Sandy fundraiser.
Ashton and Michael Kutcher
Ashton’s love for Michael goes a long way. Ashton even contemplated suicide to save his brother’s life when he had to undergo a heart transplant at an early age in life. Michael also suffered from celebral palsy and is a spokesperson for Reaching for the Stars, an organization that works for children with cerebral palsy.
Gisele and Patricia Bundchen
Born five minutes later, Patricia Bunchen is Brazilian supermodel Gisele’s fraternal twin. At the age of 13, both sisters joined a modelling course. Gisele managed to get the attention of the modelling companies. Patricia now works as Gisele’s spokesperson and manager.
Vin and Paul Diesel
Hollywood hottie Vin has a fraternal twin Paul Diesel, who obviously has the good looks and charm of his brother. He is a low-key guy and prefers to stay away from the limelight.
Alanis and Wade Imre Morissette
Canadian-American musician Alanis’ twin brother Wade Imre Morissette is a man of many talents. During his trip to India, he discovered devotional yoga and chanting, and that is when he decided to combine his interests in yoga and music and is a kirtan and indie pop-rock musician. He is also a yoga instructor, therapist, and author.
Rami and Sami Malek
Mr. Robot actor Rami Malek, who was also seen in Night at the Museum, has an identical twin who is much more than his gorgeous looks. Sami is a middle-school teacher and a hot one, we must say.
