4. Aaron and Angela Carter
Aside from recently coming out of the closet and battling out eating disorders, substance abuse and a DUI case, Aaron Carter proves that he is still relevant. Did you know that Nick Carter’s equally cute little brother has a twin sister? Yep, Aaron even was the one to walk twin sister Angela to the aisle during the latter’s wedding. Talk about sibling goals.

6. Vin Diesel and Paul Vincent
Paul Vincent – sound familiar? What if I said – Vin Diesel, surely you’ve heard of him! Paul Vincent is the fraternal twin brother of Vin Diesel. How come they don’t have the same last name then? Well Vin Diesel’s real name is Mark Sinclair Vincent. He changed his name to Vin Diesel when working as a bouncer and they were not allowed to use their true identity (kind of like a superhero really haha). Paul Vincent is also in the entertainment industry working as a Film Editor – oh and how do you tell them apart?? Paul has hair – shockingly frizzy hair!
7. Giovanni and Marissa Ribisi
Another showbiz centred family who boast a set of twins is the Ribisi family. Giovanni Ribisi is a well known actor and producer, whilst his twin sister Marissa Ribisi is an actress. Giovanni has appeared in several films including Avatar and Ted 2 as well as TV appearances in Friends, My Name is Earl and The X-Files.

8. Alanis and Wade Morissette
It’s like ra-a-aaaaiiin on your wedding day…. Well it’s not really but it is interesting none the less. The alternative rock chick of the 90’s Alanis Morisette shares her musical talent with her fraternal twin brother Wade Morisette, although Wade is more focused on Indie Pop Rock combined with chants, and is a yoga instructor, therapist and author. I wonder if this was to balance the angst in his sister’s music? Hmmm…
9. Linda and Leslie Hamilton
Linda Hamilton, best known for her role as Sarah Connor in the Terminator films has an identical twin sister Leslie Hamilton Gearron. Leslie is a nurse but has dabbled in acting as Linda’s double in the Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Although it was only 3 scenes and a distance from camera view –it would still be a pretty cool thing to do for any sisters, especially twins! The old trick of swapping identities = level professional. Good work ladies!
