Today we celebrate a double birthday: on this day, with a difference of 13 minutes, actors James and Oliver Phelps were born. How is it – you don’t know who they are? You know, you know! It’s just that we are better known to them under the names of Fred and George Weasley, the hooligan twins from the Harry Potter series of films (by the way, they also played Gideon and Fabian Pruett, members of the first Order of the Phoenix). Let’s see what other movie twins we can remember.

In a nutshell, Schwarzenegger’s biography may read: “Schwarzenegger decided – Schwarzenegger did.” Wanted to be the best bodybuilder in the world? Done! Wanted to move from Germany to America?
