Celebrity twins deliver a double dose of brilliance in acting, singing, and fashion. Throughout the years, twins like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have undergone transformations, going from adored children’s television appearances to establishing successful careers in the fashion world.
In reality television, in plays, and on talk shows, performers like Dylan and Cole Sprouse, artists Benji and Joel Madden, and Tia and Tamera Mowry continue to become well-known. Then there is the newest generation of famous twins, many of whom appear in cameos in the films of their parents, such as Knox and Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, Rumi and Sir Carter, and Ella and Alexander Clooney.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The sisters originally gained notoriety as Michelle Tanner on Full House, and they went on to act in a number of adolescent movies, including Passport To Paris and It Takes Two, as well as their popular Nickelodeon series Two Of A Kind.
The sisters entered the fashion industry as adults by creating well-known brands including The Row and Elizabeth and James.
The CFDA recognized Olsens as Womenswear Designers of the Year in 2012 and 2015. The couple also received the CFDA Accessory Designers of the Year award in 2014 and 2018.
Gisele Bündchen and Patricia Bündchen
Gisele Bündchen is very close to her fraternal twin sister Patricia, and on their milestone 40th birthday in 2020, the supermodel took to social media to post never-before-seen images of the duo.
One of them was having fun as an adult, and there were other pictures of them playing outside and with their dolls when they were younger.
“Today Pati and I get to celebrate four decades of being alive in this magnificent world!” she said as the description for the pictures. How fortunate I was to have my twin and best buddy as a sibling! [sic].’
In Três de Maio, Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil, the twin sisters spent their formative years together. Patricia eventually took on the roles of manager and spokeswoman for Gisele, and the two collaborate on the 2011-founded Intimates lingerie brand.
Marissa and Giovanni Ribisi
While his identical twin sister, Whitley Kros, is well-known for her clothing brand, Giovanni is recognized for his appearances in Saving Private Ryan, That Thing You Do!, and Friends.
With his partner, Emily Ward, Giovanni—who was formerly married to Agyness Deyn and Mariah O’Brien—now has his own twins, Enzo and Maude.
Dylan and Cole Sprouse
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody’s twins once made the twins famous. Cole joined Riverdale after receiving his degree from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study. He allegedly started dating Ari Fournier after breaking up with his three-year girlfriend Lili Reinhart. Meanwhile, Barbara Palvin, a model, and Dylan, who continues to act, are dating.
Mo And Hassan Farah
Mo Farah had a difficult upbringing and was separated from his family in war-torn Somalia across the border. Hassan claimed that being absent from his now-famous sibling caused him sorrow. He claimed to have “lost the other half of me” in an interview with The Mail on Sunday.
According to him, Hussein was simply traveling to London ahead of me when they assured him that he would soon be joining them.
“He’d have fantastic chances, and soon we’d be together,” I said. They didn’t get back together until Mo had become a world-class athlete, which was 12 years later. Both of them, according to Hassan, were good students and good running partners.
Laurent and Larry Bourgeois
The French twin dancers, known professionally as Les Twins, have a variety of jobs including choreographers, producers, models, designers, and creative directors of their company Eleven Paris.
They originally gained notoriety as Beyoncé’s dancers, performing only as men on The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. Since then, they have performed with Beyoncé at Beychella, her legendary Coachella performance, walked the runways for Versace, Gucci, and Prada, and participated in the musical film Cats.
