Do you ever wish you had a twin brother or sister? Check out these famous celebrity twosomes. Twins are estimated to be approximately 1.9% of the world population. Identical twins look alike, although they do not have the same fingerprints. As they mature, identical twins often become less alike because of lifestyle choices or external influences. The children of identical twins would test genetically as half-siblings rather than first cousins. Have a look.

Aron Ashmore and Shawn: Aaron Robert Ashmore is best known as Jimmy Olsen in Smallville. Aaron Ashmore was best known for playing Marc Hall in the 2004 Canadian TV movie Prom Queen: The Marc Hall Story. Shawn Robert Ashmore is a Canadian film and television actor, most famously known in his role as Jake in the Animorphs television series and Iceman in the X-Men films. He is the twin brother of actor Aaron Ashmore.

Mary Kate and Ashley Fuller Olsen: Mary-Kate and Ashley Fuller Olsen, also famously known as the Olsen Twins, were born on June 13, 1986. Best known for sharing the role of Michelle Tanner on the ABC/TV hit comedy series "Full House" since the tender age of nine-months old, Mary-Kate and Ashley have literally grown up before the public's eye. The Olsens also became a huge force in girl marketing when they created their company, Dualstar Productions, in 1993. In recent years, the Olsens have been focusing on the fashion end of their business. In 2007, Forbes magazine ranked the twins as the eleventh-richest women in entertainment. Their estimated net worth sits at nearly $100 million. Few young people have enjoyed such public success as the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley. Enough said.

According to Dylan, the twins plan to leave Disney after The Suite Life on Deck ends. Both will attend New York University in the fall of 2010.
