There are celebrities who were formed out of the same or different fertilized ova and were born with another human being the same day they themselves were born, but are often mistaken to be single born.

Glance below to see the celebrities with their twins as well as the different fields and paths they have chosen over being a celebrity.

Scarlett Johansson has a twin brother named Hunter, and while he attempted to go into acting when he was still a boy, he didn’t put much zeal in it. He rather pursued a career in politics, and has even served on two presidential campaigns for the current president Barack Obama. Additionally, Hunter has served as a community organizer for Scott Stringer in New York City, and the Manhattan Borough President. He has the likelihood to become one of the most notable and famous politicians of our time someday.

The singer-songwriter and DJ from England, Samantha Ronson is another celebrity who has a twin sister named Charlotte. Born on August 7th, 1977, the pair are possibly the only twins who are both successful and famous that is nearly as close as their physical resemblance given that Charlotte Ronson is a famous fashion designer. She opened her first store in 2002 on Elizabeth Street in New York City and currently, her clothing line has drawn numerous celebrities over the years. Her net worth is estimated to be whooping $45 million, so you will agree with me that she is growing almost as much as her sister is growing. The twins look so much alike both physically and otherwise no doubt.

Though her brother’s music career is yet to get anywhere close to the fame Alanis’s has earned, Wade still is doing a great a job and in making his own history given that he was named the “ambassador of Lululemon” back in 2004. A key reason for bestowing him with the title was because Wade is into yoga, and has been an instructor for the last two decades. He might rise to prominence like his sister if he continues to do better in his works.

You read it right. Even though most of their family members are all in the entertainment business, Jacob feels he would do more good as a game warden. Jacob walks the grounds of Sir Nicholas Bacon’s estate in England and makes sure things are working accordingly. He reportedly lives in a century old cottage with his wife.

The 37-year-old Iowan actor, Ashton was born at over 10 pounds while his twin brother was born at only four pounds. Well, he probably hogged all the food that came down to them. Michael was later diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood and as a result, he didn’t develop like his brother Ashton, but the pair still love each other so much it hurts.
