15. Robin and Brook Lopez
> Birthday: April 1, 1988
> Place of birth: Los Angeles, California
> Famous for: NBA players

While Robin and Brook Lopez are biologically identical twins, the two could not be more different personality and hairdo-wise. Robin is often described as aloof, and he sports an unruly curly mane and a thick beard. Brook, on the other hand, is considered to be rather intense, with short hair and a clean-shaven face. The Lopez twins share similar talents in basketball — both play for NBA teams. Brook, former center for the Brooklyn Nets, now plays for the Los Angeles Lakers. However, he will become a free agent by the end of the season. Robin is nearing the end of a four-year, $54 million contract with the New York Knicks.
