It was always considered a strange, unwritten rule: when casting a baby or small child in a role in Hollywood, it was always easier to just cast twins in the same role. Why? Because if one wasn"t doing what the producers and/or directors wanted, then the other could. One baby simply won"t stop crying? Well, we have a spare! That and child labor laws prevented child actors from working over a certain amount of hours. Sometimes, the celebrity twins continued to stay in the spotlight while growing up and went on to become super famous

Like Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (find out where the twins rank in terms of movies and TV on IMDb), who profited so much from playing Michelle Tanner on Full House that they literally built their own empire and retired young. Who are some other twins who have stolen our hearts while in the spotlight? Here are 10 of our favorites.

These two very handsome actors are often seen as inseparable (even though, yes, they have appeared in things apart, like Charlie with his Broadway work). But we do love when Max and Charlie Carver appear together, just take a look at their work in Desperate Housewives, Teen Wolf, and The Leftovers (want to learn what went on with the karaoke scene in The Leftovers?)
