Stars — times two! From Full House duo Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, to Rami Malek and his twin brother, Sami, many celebs have the twin chromosome.
The Olsens have tackled many projects together over the years since their acting debut on the ABC show in 1987. After the sisters spent eight years on the Full House cast, the siblings went on to star in films including Billboard Dad and It Takes Two. In their teenage years, they released Passport to Paris, Switching Goals and many more films through their own production company.
In 2005, the twins launched their fashion label, The Row, but they don’t consider themselves to be “product pushers” in any way. Ashley explained to WSJ Magazine in August 2018: “I don’t know if it’s because of the way we grew up — we just don’t like talking about ourselves or talking about what we’re doing. … It’s not really our approach.”
She went on to share their “ups and downs” over the years, comparing their sibling bond to both “a marriage and a partnership.”
“It’s been 32 years of learning how to communicate,” Ashley said at the time, while her sister chimed in, “We do everything together. We came out of the womb doing that.”
Tia Mowry and Tamera Mowry have also been working together since starring in Sister, Sister in 1994, from their Tia & Tamera reality show to their Twitches movies.
When Sister, Sister moved to Netflix in 2020, Tia gushed about her and Cory Hardrict’s son, Cree, “loving” the episodes of the throwback show. “I’m in heaven,” she tweeted at the time.
Tamera wrote via Instagram that the show had been such a “blessing” for their sisterhood, explaining, “It all began here with my sissy. Representation matters. I’m so grateful and I am so excited for our generation to relive one of my fav jobs in history! And I’m ecstatic for the newer generation to discover this show.”
As for Rami, the Bohemian Rhapsody‘s star’s twin brother, Sami, is a teacher. The Oscar winner told Jimmy Kimmel about his look-alike sibling in 2015, saying, “We don’t look as much alike as we used to, but, yeah, we are identical.”
The pair used to trick people switching places, he went on to explain. “He calls me one day and goes, ‘Hey, do you know a Greek monologue from a Greek tragedy?'” Rami explained. “[I said], ‘Yeah, of course, I’ve just been doing this for four years.’ He goes, ‘Listen, I need you to come down to my university’ — a major American university here in Los Angeles. He goes, ‘I need you to do this for my class. It’s gonna give me the points I need.'”
