It’s like having a lifelong teammate.

In Hollywood, there’s a plethora of actors and actresses who have twins. They tend to share sweet moments together to show how close they are. If one day you spot certain actors out running errands or in line for a coffee, they might actually be their twins. Twins actors tend.
