Twins are creepy (I can say this, I have a FRATERNAL twin sister). I know they look identical, but aren't the Olsen sisters fraternal, not identical? I've been told they were by several people. *shrugs* Out of the other celebs I knew about, I knew they had twins (then again, a lot of the celebs on that list I don't know anything about).
