In terms of telling these two apart, it is not difficult at all. Below are four photos of Miley Cyrus, Twin One (I will refer to them as 1,2,3 and 4, left to right, and also with Twin two):
I found her to be a little more demure than her twin sister, always fully clothed, and exhibiting facial expressions that seemed mature and controlled.
Here is Twin Two:
Notice the slightly rounder face, a freckle apparent at about our two o’clock above her lip, seen photos 2,3 and 4 above. (While Twin One photo 1 above shows that same freckle, she is heavily made up in that photo, and I am guessing it is penciled on. It is absent in photos 2,3 and 4.) The freckle is missing in photo 1 below – in that photo Twin Two is nude and covered with all sorts of made-up effects, so I am guessing that they covered the freckle even as they left everything else uncovered.
It is Twin Two that I have found on stage, in wild get ups and freaky apparel, sporting massive penises and boobs the size of pumpkins. She seems willing to do anything for shock value.
But again, telling them apart is not difficult, and here are some face splits to prove this. This is Twin One with Twin Two photo 2 above matched.
They are not even close, in fact so different that this should no surprise anyone familiar with them. They are easily distinguished without the benefit of face splits. The ears alone, wildly misaligned, are enough to give it away. But if they never appear together in public, how would we know?
Here is Twin One photo 4 above aside Twin Two.
Again, not even close.
And, to demonstrate that we are indeed dealing with twins here, here are facial splits of Twin One and Twin Two so that you can see there is indeed internal agreement in the photo groupings.
While smiling confuses the mouth alignment, I look for all the other features and find them to be the same person in each set of photos, Twin One above, and Twin Two below.
The next question that came up in this work had to do with Justin Bieber. There is a rumor circulating that Bieber and Cyrus have on occasion interchanged, and that they are each androgynous. What I found was creepy enough, but no, even though Miley sometimes looks like a younger Bieber, they are not comparable now. In one photo of Bieber, shown to the left here, he comes off as quite effeminate, but he is also young and has grown some whiskers since. This photo did indeed align with one of the Cyrus twins and that is what is creepy. We are finding not only twins all around show business, but also people who look remarkably alike. That seems to be where this research is taking us – the replication business, but at this point it is only speculative.
Anyway, Miley Cyrus, former [star of] Hannah Montana*, a product of the Disney empire, is formally added to the Honor Roll of Twins. I have a hunch that there will be many more twins coming out of the Disney factory – right, Christina, Justin, Ryan, Keri, Britney? It could be a gold mine.
*I just learned that she played the character Miley Stewart on the show Hannah Montana – excuse me for not being up on my Disney Channel information.
