Gemini is a rare phenomenon of life! However, some of them manage to achieve quite significant success. Let us recall the most famous star twins.
1.Peter and David Paul
Stars of the nineties, the twin brothers Peter and David Paul are from a small town in Connecticut. They were passionate about American football and wrestling from the childhood. All these hobbies required a great strength and muscle mass, so the brothers tried bodybuilding, and eventually fully switch to it. In the late seventies, they even opened their own gym.
In the eightieth these spectacular brothers were noticed by film producers and starred in several films. Basically, they starred in comedies and action movies. The most popular film was “The Nanny.”
The brothers are still filming but not too often. David has devoted himself to the photography, music writing and playing guitar, and Peter became a television presenter.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
American Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have become not only one of the most famous twins in the world, but the first 10 years old millionaires.
The girls appeared in their first film when they were 1 year old and they still keep taking part in various films and series.
The first most popular film with their participation was the comedy “Both I and My Shadow”. The sisters filmed there when they were 9 years old. Their names have become a real brand – they were everywhere – from clothing to books and magazines.
The girls were growing up and their acting career was slowing down. However, the sisters got a new passion – fashion.
They founded their first brand “The Row”. Then they created one more brand, which was more democratic – Elizabeth & James, named after their brother and sister. By the way, today, Elizabeth Olsen is one of the most promising young actresses.
James and Oliver Phelps
James and Oliver Phelps were born in Birmingham, with a difference of 13 minutes. They attended a drama school in their early childhood.
They loved books written by JK Rowling when they were kids and when they found out about the audition for the role in the movie, they could not miss the chance.
The brothers had to change the color of their hair and eyebrows to red for the role. However, it was worth it. Everyone remembered these charming boys!
After the saga about Harry Potter, Oliver and James continued to act in films, but separately from each other.
Scarlett Johansson and Hunter
A famous Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has a handsome twin brother, named Hunter. The actress was born just three minutes before her brother, so she likes to joke that these minutes are the most important in her life. They are very close. Scarlett even postponed the wedding ceremony with Ryan Reynolds because of the Hunter’s work.
Her brother is also an actor. He played with his sister in the movie “The Borrowers”. But nowadays he is successfully building a political career. He works in a team of the current US President Barack Obama.
Ashton Kutcher and Michael
The difference between Ashton Kutcher and Michael is five minutes. Ashton was born as a healthy kid, but Michael was born very weak: with congenital heart disease and cerebral palsy. When he was 13 years old, he had a surgery for a heart transplant.
Ashton has always been worrying about his brother. He even tried to commit suicide because of his brother’s desease. But after a successful operation Ashton believed in miracles.
“I owe my brother, he is my mirror reflection. Constantly ask yourself: are you going the right path? I’m in a better situation than he, but does that mean that I should have everything?”
Linda and Leslie Hamilton
Linda Hamilton, best known for the role of Sarah Connor in the movie “Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” is six minutes younger than her sister, Leslie.
Even in childhood Linda suffered because of the fact that she has a sister, like two drops of water similar to her. To be different from Leslie, Linda cut her hair, shortened eyelashes and put on up to 75 kg (in 16 years).
Subsequently, the “twin crises” turned into a manic-depressive syndrome and the actress had to ask for a pro help. Treatment helped, the relations with her sister improved, and they became friends. Now Linda is successfully acting in films and Leslie is a nurse.
