1. Scarlett and Hunter Johansson
Scarlett Johansson might have been e-mail buddies with then-Senator Barack Obama, but her twin brother Hunter helped get him into the Oval Office. In June 2008 ScarJo’s twin left his job as a community organizer at Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer’s office and became a campaign organizer for Obama in Denver. As everyone knows, Obama became President, while Hunter received an honor of his own: People magazine named him a “Hot Bachelor” in their “Single and Sexy Men of 2008” feature.
2. Kiefer and Rachel Sutherland
Rachel is a post-production supervisor working in film and television in Toronto. But when her big brother, Kiefer, (he’s seven minutes older) made his feature film directorial debut in 1997, Rachel was there for him. She acted as second assistant property master, grip, and costumer when Kiefer went behind the lens to shoot “Truth or Consequences, N.M.” I’m still not sure who is who…
3. Ashton and Michael Kutcher
Michael Kutcher was born with cerebral palsy and had a life-saving heart transplant when he was 13-years-old. Always his twin’s protector when the two were growing up, Ashton decided to move to Hollywood to pursue his acting career, while Michael stayed in Iowa and sells retirement plans. Ummm dude your brother is worth millions…i’m pretty sure he SHOULD be set for life!
4. Patricia and Gisele Bundchen
Patricia prefers to stay behind the camera, acting as Gisele’s manager. She’s good at it too: Gisele is the world’s highest-paid supermodel, earning $35 million in 2008.
5. Giovanni and Marissa Ribisi
When future actors Giovanni and Marissa Ribisi were born, they were delivered by Bibbe Hansen. Giovanni grew up to play Phoebe’s brother, Frank, Jr., on “Friends” and Scarlett Johansson’s photographer-husband in “Lost in Translation.” Marissa appeared in “Dazed and Confused,” “The Brady Bunch Movie,” and “Felicity” before launching her own clothing line, Whitley Kros. And Bibbe Hansen? She ended up becoming Marissa’s mother-in-law, when Ribisi married Bibbe’s son, Beck Hansen, who is better known as indie rock darling Beck.
6. Isabella and Isotta Ingrid Rossellini
Doesn’t matter, there both rich.
7. Alanis and Wade Morissette
Isn’t it ironic that Alanis Morissette has a twin? No, not really, but neither were any of the things that Morissette talked about in her 1996 hit song “Ironic.” But we digress. Wade played piano and guitar growing up, but it wasn’t until he combined his passion for yoga with his love of music that he found his true calling. As a spokesman for lululemon athletica apparel, Wade joined the Yoga Pilgrimage in 2005 and toured to promote his debut album, “Sargam Scales of Music.” He’s been rocking the yoga circuit ever since. Maybe if Wade had taught Alanis how to align her chakras, “Jagged Little Pill” might have been a kinder, gentler album.
