A List of Celebrity Twins, with photos! This list includes both fraternal and identical twins, famous twin duos and celebrities with twin siblings who aren't famous. Twin actors and celebrities are pretty rare given that only 2% of the world's population are twins, and only 0.2% are identical twins. To this day, twins are considered somewhat exotic and therefore appealing to new parents and casting agents alike. Couples trying for their first child often muse that fraternal twins (one boy, one girl) would be ideal.

This list includes all types of famous twins in history - famous asian, white, and black twins, and they have all done something notable.
