In 1988, the action hero Arnold Schwarzenegger and the comedic genius Danny DeVito joined forces for the unexpected hit comedy “Twins.”

Eccentric Twins

Directed by Ivan Reitman, the film revolves around the unlikely pairing of fraternal twins, Julius Benedict (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Vincent Benedict (Danny DeVito), who discover each other’s existence after being separated at birth. The plot of the film takes a comedic turn when the brothers embark on a journey to find their long-lost mother, who gave birth to these extraordinary twins through a genetic experiment in which she was involved.

From Bodybuilding Champion to Hollywood Star

Arnold Schwarzenegger, born in Thal, Austria, in 1947, rose to fame in the world of bodybuilding before transitioning into a successful acting career. Standing at an impressive 6 feet 2 inches tall and known for his chiseled physique, Schwarzenegger became a household name with his iconic role as the Terminator in the eponymous film series. With his charm, charisma, and dedication, Schwarzenegger proved that he was more than just a muscle-bound action star.

Versatile Actor and Multifaceted Artist

Danny DeVito, born in Neptune Township, New Jersey, in 1944, is known for his unique appearance and distinctive personality. Standing at 4 feet 10 inches, he is on the opposite end of the spectrum from Schwarzenegger, but his talent and comedic flair are undeniable. DeVito rose to fame with roles in films such as “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and the TV series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” His witty and standout performance in the film “Twins” showcased his ability to captivate audiences and create exceptional chemistry with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

A Box Office Success

After its release in 1988, “Twins” became a blockbuster success, earning over $216 million worldwide. The unique blend of comedy and poignant moments resonated with audiences, ensuring a strong on-screen chemistry between Schwarzenegger and DeVito. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, the story of a perfect man and his less-polished brother became popular.

The film “Twins” showcased the versatility of both Schwarzenegger and DeVito as actors. The success of the movie paved the way for future collaborations between this duo, who reunited in films like “Last Action Hero” (1993) and “Junior” (1994). Beyond their shared work on screen, Schwarzenegger and DeVito continue thriving in their successful careers, with Schwarzenegger serving as the Governor of California and DeVito still entertaining audiences with his unique sense of humor.
