The Olsen Twins can also be called Thin and Thinner. Dumb and Dumber? Either will work.

When you think celebrity twins, you undoubtedly think of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen first, followed perhaps by Tia and Tamera Mowry or Joel and Benji Madden.

There are a bunch of others you probably don't know about, however.

From actors and supermodels to athletes and political scions, more than a dozen stars grew up sharing a special connection with a twin sibling of their own.

While some duos parlayed that very fact of their existence into fame, other famous stars have lesser-known identical or fraternal twins living out of the limelight.

Check out 19 stars you may or may not realize have twins ...

Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher has a twin named Michael, who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age. Michael lives in the brothers' native Iowa with his son and wife, who is also expecting a baby this year.

Want to know one of the secrets of Hollywood magic? Making surprisingly short stars look super tall through a little camera trick known as perspective.

Super short celebrities have nothing to fear when it's time to make a movie. If a guy is shorter than his leading lady, directors will fix that right up!

Bam! Audiences will never know he's actually 5" shorter than his costar! That is, until the press tour. Those images can't be faked quite as easily. 

Some stars, especially those of the male persuasion with easily bruised egos, demand that co-stars and/or wives don't wear heels on the red carpet. (coughTomCruisecough!!)

Others, however, own their short stature and make it part of their shtick. For the ladies of Hollywood, it might mean never being a supermodel, but doesn't typically affect their star power.

It does, however, make for comically hilarious photos when they stand next to really tall celebrities like Joel McHale. Check out this list of 25 super short celebs to see!

Anna Kendrick
Don't underestimate Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick because she's only 5' tall!

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen made a rare appearance on Ellen this week.

The twins were there to shill for their new fragrances, but they also took a few minutes to play an Ellen DeGeneres original, "Mary-Kate and Ashley?"

The game is exactly what it sounds like, as the host asked the young ladies a series of questions about their lives (Who is the best dancer? Who got kissed first?) and watched as they held up "Me" or "Her" paddles for answers.

Which questions stumped the actresses? Which left them really confused about the show Naked and Afraid? Watch now:

Funny times.

Hollywood has a bit of a Peter Pan complex sometimes never wanting its child actors to grow up. But grow up they must as people do.

Occasionally, the actors and actresses we love as children make the transition to adult stars ... sometimes making a pit stop as amateur porn stars ... before going on to transition successfully into adult actors known for more than just their childhood roles.

Sometimes those transitions are less successful and we spend their infamous adulthoods wondering what happened?

(Drugs and alcohol happened, that's what. Looking at you, Lindsay Lohan.)

Others, like second-time mama Drew Barrymore, go through seriously rough growing pains and emerge on the other side bigger and better than anyone could have imagined. Maybe there's hope for LiLo yet.

And then there's Leonardo DiCaprio who just gets better and better with age. Seriously. He's a fine wine.

Take a look at these 21 child actors who grew up and stayed famous. Or infamous. 

Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Piano. She went on to play Rogue and Sookie Stackhouse. Not too bad.

Ahhh, siblings. You can't live with them, you can't kill them. 

KIDDING! 

Today is National Siblings Day! The other day a year we pretend to like our built-in best friends because social media tells us to. (The first day is Christmas, because presents, obvs.)

In honor of National Siblings Day, which is probably a totally made up day created by someone attempting to bury the hatchet with a brother or sister by publicly professing that Imma let you finish by my sibling is the best sibling ever, our celebrity gossip editors thought it would be grand to take a look at some of our favorite star siblings:

From the fabulous to the feuding to the famewhores, Hollywood is rife with celebrity siblings. Now to decide if you and your siblings are more or less dysfunctional than they are.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turn 26 years old today ... which will totally make anyone who remembers them on Full House for freaking ever ago feel old.

Following their acting debut as infants, the twins appeared together in a variety of TV, film and video projects throughout their child and teenage years.

Through their company Dualstar, the Olsens branched out into fashion and have become some of the wealthiest women in the entertainment industry.

You gotta respect Mary-Kate and Ashley for becoming such moguls, if nothing else. The birthday girls work hard. Because we gotta ask ...

Olsen Twins: Who'd you rather ...

At the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards Monday night, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won the 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award.

For their work on their own line, the Row, obviously.

Johnny Depp was also lauded for his personal style, though just one night after rocking with The Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards, Depp opted to sit this one out.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

The 48-year-old Dark Shadows star wasn't present to accept his Fashion Icon award, so his friend and Cry-Baby director John Waters accepted on his behalf.

The night belonged to the Olsens, although Olivier Sarkozy, who is reportedly cozying up to Mary-Kate of late, was not on hand to support his girl. Oh well.

Here's a look at some of the big fashion winners from the event:

Star Magazine, also known as the beacon of celebrity news integrity, has a great story this morning - that Ashley Olsen is contemplating getting some larger breasts and trying to persuade twin sister Mary-Kate to get them as well.

“Ashley is considering getting her boobs done - she wants to be more voluptuous," reports a supposed insider. "And she told Mary-Kate that she wanted her to get one at the same time so that it wouldn’t be glaringly obvious."

Mary-Kate Olsen of Weeds

The article continues: "That way, they could say that they had just both matured and were filling out naturally.” Mmm hmm. Just like Audrina Patridge.

Mary-Kate Olsen, according to the report, is not a fan - she is “horrified” by the idea and “hates being told what to do and how to look by Ashley.”

NOTE TO THE OLSEN TWINS: If looking "voluptuous" is really the goal, you might start with a little nourishment. Seriously. Try the bacon cheeseburger the next time you're out. Not only will it "fill you out," but it will piss off PETA.

They really do. And we're not talking about eating disorders, drug problems, the worst fashion sense on Earth, or tangential connections to the death of a prominent actor earlier this year. We mean it in the literal sense!

Check out this Olsen Twins photo and see:

No word on whether Mary-Kate and Ashley were returning from a three-week African safari, or a trip to the grocery store. Or whether the bodyguards have the other two-thirds of their stuff. Or why they're wearing sunglasses inside.

We could go on. Instead, we invite you to check out the Shannon Twins instead. We think you'll find them slightly more stimulating than these trolls.

Yesterday's celebrity birthday was followed by an engagement, as supermodel Adriana Lima was proposed to by fair-to-poor NBA player Marko Jaric!

We don't suspect today's birthday girls - The Olsen Twins! - to get engaged to any sports stars in the next 24 hours, although they have dated some.

Anyway. Happy birthday to the former child stars and current train wrecks, who are 22 today. Do us a favor and eat something for a change!

Here's a little gallery of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen pictures our staff put together in celebration of their special day. Click to enlarge them!

Who's coming up next? When does your favorite star celebrate another year of not dying? Peep our calendar of celebrity birthdays now and see.
