Scarlett Johansson & other celebs who are #twinning

Julie Sprankles is a freelance writer living in the storied city of Charleston, SC. When she isn't slinging sass for SheKnows, she enjoys watching campy SyFy creature features (Pirahnaconda, anyone?), trolling the internet for dance work...

Hollywood's most surprising twin sets

With twin birth hitting a record high in 2014, it only makes sense that some of our favorite celebs were born twinkies.

Alanis has put out some pretty angry albums in the past, but maybe her newer, happier stuff is thanks in part to some Zen tips from her twinsie, Wade. Also a singer, Alanis’ twin serves as a spokesman for Lululemon Athletica apparel — through which he discovered his love for yoga. In 2005, he even joined the Lululemon Yoga Pilgrimage and toured to promote his own album.

Kiefer and Rachel Sutherland

Kiefer Sutherland might have played a loner on TV’s 24, but in real life he’s got a built-in BFF in twin sister Rachel — who, coincidentally, kind of looks just like Kiefer wearing a wig. She works in Hollywood too, only behind the scenes as a post-production supervisor. So why haven’t we heard of her? Having a father as famous as Donald Sutherland is probably enough to overshadow any other family member.

In a Collider interview in 2012, Kiefer described his family as tight-knit, saying, "I’ve been really fortunate. I grew up with my mother, and I have a very, very close relationship with my father now... I have a twin sister, who has helped me through a lot of stuff."

Ashton and Michael Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher might have furthered his career picking on others as the host of Punk’d, but the prankster doesn’t joke around when it comes to being a top-notch twin brother. His fraternal twin, Michael, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at an early age, leading to developmental issues that often made him the target of teasing. Ashton, who made it his mission to protect his brother against such bullying growing up, "showed me the love one brother has for another," says Michael.

Jill and Jacqueline Hennessy

Aside from a brief foray into acting as Jill’s identical twin escort in the movie Dead Ringers, Jacqueline has maintained a private life as much as possible. A television journalist with a Master’s degree in French literature, "Jac" often gets mistaken for her famous sis. "I would never want to subject her to my life, because she’s inadvertently been the subject of such insanity solely by looking like me," laments Jill. "She gets stalked by people who don’t believe she’s my twin." So who do they think she is? Well, she looks so much like Jill, crazed fans believe Jac really is Jill... and lying about being her sister to avoid them!

You might not have known actor Giovanni Ribisi has a twin, but chances are you know his sister Marissa by proxy. You’ve likely seen her work as the designer who owns clothing brand Whitley Kros or you’re familiar with her husband, indie rock darling Beck. She’s also starred in a few flicks of her own, including the cult hits Dazed and Confused, The Brady Bunch Movie and Pleasantville.

DJ Samantha Ronson may technically be the bigger celeb because of her time spent dating Lindsay Lohan, but her twin sister has some street cred too. Samantha's fraternal twin Charlotte is a successful designer who has shown at New York Fashion Week. And both sisters hail from the UK.

Of their sisterly bond, Samantha has said, "No drama between us. My sister and I are twins, so we’re obviously super close, I always DJ her fashion shows, and I always support her with her clothing, and she always supports me with my music."

Aaron and Angel Carter

Living in big brother Nick Carter's shadow, it's easy to forget that younger sib and singer Aaron has another carbon copy waiting in the wings. While you may see some physical resemblance, their twin connection is undeniable — Aaron walked Angel down the aisle in 2014. (Aww.)

"There'’s definitely like a twin connection. It’'s not like you love them more or anything. It’'s just that you connect with them more, you know?" Angel has said.

These poor girls’ parents! With all the boys that must have come a-knocking on their door during Gisele and Patricia’s high school years, we doubt Mom and Pop Bundchen ever got any shuteye. While Gisele reportedly was jealous of her "hotter" sister when they were younger, Patricia no longer models. Instead, she acts as her supermodel sis’s PR manager!

Scarlett and Hunter Johansson

Not only does Scarlett Johansson have a twin brother named Hunter who — go figure! — is pretty darn cute, but she’s actually shared screen time with her twin bro! Well, they were in the same movie, at least. In 1996’s Manny & Lo, Scarlett played Amanda while Hunter had a bit part as a member of the "Golf Cart Family." But, hey, People magazine did dub him a hot bachelor in its "Single and Sexy Men of 2008" feature.

Johansson, who is three minutes older than her baby brother, joked in a Today interview, “I beat him by three minutes, the three most important minutes of my entire life.”
