Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Colleen Mitchell

    Connie Britton has a twin sister.

  • Tiffany Blair

    The Heder guys look so similar, I had to stare to figure out which was Jon. Holy cow!

  • Oh, man. It must suck to be Gisele's twin.

  • manting

    the women next to Mick Jagger (on the left) looks a lot like Cesar Romero's Joker

  • John G.

    There are two Kutchers? Oh, I feel sick.

  • JenVegas

    The finest of the Fiennes is a TWIN?

  • Theunis Stofberg

    Poor Gisele Bundchen's sister. It doesnt matter how good looking she is, and she is definetely very pretty, she will always be Gisele's less pretty sister.

  • BWeaves

    Well, I looked at the Kutcher brothers and thought, "That's unfortunate."

  • JoannaRobinson

    He's got cerebral palsy so let's tread lightly.

  • BWeaves

    I did not know that. Thank you for telling me.

  • pinkerton80

    Oh, Xander...

  • That middle picture of Ashton Kutcher and his brother is the most '90's picture ever.

  • e jerry powell

    I thought that biracial kids were supposedly more attractive. Those Vincent twins lay bare that particular lie. Or maybe it's just those photos.

  • Is Vin Diesel's brother part of a really terrible Simon & Garfunkel tribute band? Because that's the only way that hair makes any level of sense.

  • Bodhi

    I keep scrolling & staring at young Donald Sutherland.

  • JenVegas

    his shirt is so fabulous.

  • I think the bigger scandal is that ScarJo's dad and/or grandpa appears to be Terry Richardson.

  • delle

    Enver Gjokaj has a twin, they used him on one of the episodes of The Dollhouse.
    I know he's not famous, but he damn well deserves to be...he blew my mind on that show, boy's got serious talent. Can we please get this fellow working?

  • JoannaRobinson

    Enver Gjojak is my favorite of all the Gjokajs. I am currently employed on a top secret mission to murder Agent Blue Steel on S.H.I.E.L.D. and replace him with Enver.

  • A. Smith

    He was an NYPD cop in the Battle of New York and dealt with Captain America. Employment with SHIELD is not out of the picture.

  • Jim

    I have a stun gun in my gym bag if you need it.

    What? Like YOU all don't. Humph.

  • Uriah_Creep

    Godspeed on your mission, Agent Robinson, but please be aware that there will be no extraction team waiting upon its completion. On the orders of Agent Cold Bitch.

  • Joanna, if you are able to pull that off, you'll be my new best friend. :)

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    There are two Rosellinis? I feel so betrayed.

  • What is the a picture of next to Vin Diesel? Is that from the X-Files?

  • Kate K. F.

    Don't forget the Ashmore brothers, they're all over geek shows and movies; X-Men, Smallville, Warehouse 13 and others.

  • Benjamin Rennells

    I know that these two guys are twins, but when I see one or the other in
    a show, I never have any idea which one it is. As far as I can tell,
    it's just one guy that's in a shitload of stuff.

  • JenVegas

    Wait, there are two of them? I've been loving ...uh one of them, or possibly both of them in movies and on tv for a REALLY long time and I had no idea!

  • I've adored and nerded out over them since childhood via Animorphs and Are You Afraid of the Dark? But I guess they don't make the list since it's pretty well known they're twins? Maybe?

  • emmalita

    I would assume the fact that they are both famous is what kept them off the list.

  • Stacey A

    This post literally made my mind explode.

  • Robot Devi

    Laverne Cox also has a twin brother. He played her pre-transitioned self in Orange is the New Black.

  • Bodhi

    I LOVE that

  • Bedewcrock

    What about Marlena (Deidre Hall) from Days of Our Lives? Does that count as famous? Her twin plays her EVERY time she gets possessed by the devil. Great screen time.

  • Possessed Marlena is my favorite Days storyline ever!

  • PerpetualIntern

    Remember when she turned into a panther?

  • Bert_McGurt

    No kidding, that's like what? Twice a week?

  • Stu Rat

    I believe we all now know why Vin Diesel shaves his dome.

    And that he made the right choice.

  • e jerry powell

    Not all biracial kids get hair that scary, but every once in a while...

  • NateMan

    May I please have 2 Hennesey's? Also, may I have the Hennessy twins to go with them?

  • AvaLehra

    Also, did anyone else think for a millisecond that that was Terry Richardson in the Johanssen picture? I'd like to apologize to their dad, uncle or pop-pop for thinking that.

  • e jerry powell

    Oh, no, several minutes.

  • Bedewcrock

    Another thing Terry Richardson has ruined for everyone.

  • foolsage

    I thought the same thing upon first viewing.

  • Joseph Finn

    "Kelly Donovan and Nicholas Brendan"

    Anyone else looking at that pic and trying to figure which is which? I mean, that's some creapy twin similarity.

    I love the LInda Hamilton one just for how they apparently were having trouble doing the chip-removal scene in the mirror for Terminator 2, working out the angles and how they'd have to shoot it twice, when Hamilton piped up and asked, "Why not just use my twin?" Apparently no one at the time seemed to know or had forgotten she has a twin sister.

  • loo shag brolley

    I haven't heard this part of the story, but I wouldn't put it past James Cameron to have no idea his own wife has a twin.

  • Joseph Finn

    They got married long after T2 and got involved during the movie; I'm not saying Cameron's perfect but he gets a pass on that one.

  • loo shag brolley

    D'oh! Foiled by facts once again! I'll get you yet James Cameron. Oh yes, I will.

  • Bedewcrock

    RE: Kelly Donovan, Nicholas Brendan = Whoever got their teeth capped (the twin on the left). Probably Nicholas Brendan as he's more famous?

  • AvaLehra

    This post wins because of Baby Rafe Voldemort Almasy.

  • Michelle

    LOL, I was JUST coming on here to say that Kelly Donovan and Nicholas Brendan better not be on this list.

  • IngridToday

    Xander looks old :(

  • Sean

    I actually knew that about Eva Green. That means there is an extra one just for me. For some reason, probably since I have a twin sister, celeb twins has been an interest of mine.

  • lowercase_ryan

    Only one picture of Parker? I am disappoint.

  • Ian Fay

    Eva Green has a twin sister?


  • PerpetualIntern

    And I will contend the sister's even more gorgeous.

  • John W

    Jill and Jacqueline Hennessy appeared in at least one film together: Dead Ringers by David Cronenberg. A film about...twins.

  • manting

    love that movie - and yes its a film about twins but its also a film about gynecology and specialty tools and yucky stuff

  • Uriah_Creep

    And what a disturbing film it was.

  • e jerry powell

    At one point, because of fucked-up production scheduling between Dick Wolf and Tom Fontana, Claire Kincaide had to be in New York and Baltimore at the same time, so Jacqueline had to stand in for Jill on "Law & Order" while Jill was shooting "Homicide."

    "It;s just something I know."

  • John W

    Here is a screen cap.

  • BlackRabbit

    Dammit, NateMan did my terrible "2 shots of" Hennessy joke 4 hours ago!

  • Juxyn

    Do it again!

  • BlackRabbit

    I'll have two shots of Hennessy to go. *Sigh*

  • Closest Award goes to the Johanssen's.

    And Eva Green's twin is less bitchy and dangerous but just as fetching.

  • Thank god Eva Green's twin isn't identical, as that would cause spontaneous, um, reactions. However, she looks sunny and delightful.

  • JJ

    As evidenced by the Terminator 2 foundry scene photo above, the Hamilton sisters, tank tops and guns out, are easily the closest. Leslie actually plays her sister in the same movie in three different scenes.

  • IngridToday

    They are clearly the most badass set of twins.

  • Jill

    Green's twin is pretty. She looks more like she could be Jill Goodacre's twin, though.

  • DataAngel

    Didn't we already have this post?

  • TheAggroCraig

    Pajiba Posts You Didn't Know Had Twins?

  • Bert_McGurt

    "That's what I like about those high school girls - I get older, they turn to Scientology."

    Wait, that's not right...

  • bastich

    "Alright alright alright...."

  • Evolve Today

    Jon Heder is famous?

  • Mark Maloney

    Jon Heder famous? Probably not. But I can't bring myself to hate on him too much. His Napoleon Dynamite character triggered some sort of self-awareness with my Asperger's son, so there's that :-)

  • Evolve Today

    Nothing against the guy. Just at this point, if you asked someone if they know who Jon Heder is, they wouldn't even remember him from that.

  • Scorptilicus

    Unless you mention that he's the "Napoleon Dynamite" guy. Then you'll get the usual "Ohhhhh".

  • manting

    his career is severely limited due to his strong Mormon beliefs. You will notice his characters never say one curse word or have sex outside marriage. I pretty sure his characters all also wear magic underpants
