Famous People Who Have Twin Siblings You Probably Didn’t Know About
Do you know everything about the celebrity world? You will certainly be surprised by this article. It’s no secret that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are twin sisters. But did you know that actors Scarlett Johansson, Pabllo Vittar, and presenter Renata Vasconcellos are also twins?
Besides them, other celebrities also have a monozygotic (identical) or dizygotic (fraternal) twin sibling who is far from the limelight. Some are so physically similar that they seem to be the same person, as is the case with actress Linda Hamilton’s identical twin sister. Check out this list of twin and almost twin siblings.
Renata Vasconcellos, the 49-year-old journalist from Jornal Nacional, has a twin sister! It’s very difficult to tell who is Renata and who is Lanza. The journalist jokes: ‘The confusion of being alike always happens. We are monozygotic twins.’ Through social media, Renata has also confused her followers by posting a photo of Lanza’s puppy face-to-face with the ‘twin auntie’.
Lanza Mazza, the twin sister of the Globo journalist, is a stylist for a very famous women’s brand, Cantão. In addition, she is currently the creative director of the brand, occupying the highest position in the profession. Lanza says she feels fulfilled with her work and doesn’t mind being confused with her twin sister.
Those who are up to date with current events know Phabullo Rodrigues da Silva very well, or rather, Pabllo Vittar. The 29-year-old drag singer also has a twin sister, Phamella Rodrigues. In an interview with the TV show Encontro on Globo, the artist has already shown a lot of affection and admiration for her twin.
Phamella lives in Minas Gerais and is the mother of a 7-year-old boy. In addition to her, Pabllo also has a sister named Polyanna Rodrigues, who currently works as her personal assistant. On social media, some users are still surprised that Pabllo has a twin sister.
Many people didn’t know, but the famous DJ Alok also has a twin brother. The curiosity becomes even greater because Bhaskar is also a DJ.

Bhaskar is also an electronic music producer. Their parents are considered pioneers of psytrance in the country and created the Universo Paralello festival, which is currently very famous. With various inspirations, he and Alok decided to form the live Trance Lógica project.
Scarlett and Hunter Johansson
Scarlett Johansson – known worldwide for her impeccable performances in various roles – is another Hollywood twin. She and her brother Hunter are not identical twins, as they are fraternal, but they both pursue careers in the arts. Both of them are actors and have acted together in the past.
In 1996, people could see the siblings working together in the movie Manny & Lo. However, Scarlett had a faster pace of work that Hunter couldn’t keep up with, so nowadays, he is not as well known in the entertainment industry. During the reelection of former President Barack Obama, Hunter was seen volunteering on his campaign.
Rafael and Fábio
Rafael and Fábio, famous soccer players, are also twin brothers! Proving that sport can mix with DNA, the players are also part of this list. The professional athletes played for great clubs around the world and always made clear their desire to play for their heart club, Botafogo.
Playing for the same team, twins Rafael and Fábio were born in Petrópolis and started their careers together in the youth categories of Fluminense, but never played for the club’s main team. Currently, Fábio will face his brother on opposing teams. The two will face each other twice in the 2023 Brasileirão.

From then on, they never stopped succeeding! The closest fans say that despite the physical similarities, the brothers have very different personalities.
One of the most well-known and famous models of all time also has a twin sister! Top model Gisele Bundchen and her sister are not identical, meaning they were formed in separate placentas. Patricia, like her sister, has impeccable beauty and, although she took modeling courses, chose not to pursue the profession.
Today, besides being partners in their personal lives, Patrícia and Gisele are very close and share professional challenges. Patrícia has been working as Gisele’s manager for over a decade. Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, and Rafaela are also sisters of the twins.
Linda, an American actress, has a twin sister named Leslie, which you probably didn’t know! Both of them are identical, meaning they are monozygotic twins. Linda (despite having acted in several famous movies) is always better known and remembered for Sarah Connor, the character she played in The Terminator.
Leslie did not follow in her sister’s footsteps and works as a nurse. However, she also had a special appearance in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and worked as a double for her sister. So, do you have a hidden sibling too?

The football player and striker of Corinthians, Ángel Romero, has a brother who is also a football player, playing as a midfielder, and his name is Oscar Romero.

The curious question that remains is: will the brothers be together again in the next season of games?
Continuing on the football field, we have another twin brother going through Corinthians!

Gabriela and Daniela Spanic
One of the most famous soap operas of the 9’0s also features twin sisters! La Usurpadora, a Mexican drama, had Gabriela Spanic playing two twin sisters, Paola and Paulina. The most interesting part is that, in this case, art imitated life.
Daniela, the other twin, worked as a stunt double in the soap opera.
