Martin Sheen's real name is Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez. Carlos Estevez is better known as Charlie Sheen, while Emilio Estevez seems to be the only one who kept the family name.

For some reason I did not know this about Martin's real name.

There's a rumor that Charlie Chaplin entered a Charlie Chaplin look-a-like contest and lost. Though this has been hard to prove as official records of such a contest are unlikely to exist. But the Association Chaplin, the historical society dedicated to Chaplin allows that it "might be true."

That's both funny and sad...if it's true!

In 1929, Rin Tin Tin received the most votes for the Academy Awards for Best Actor. Sadly, he did not win as The Academy thought if they let a dog win the first award ever, they would not be taken seriously.

He was robbed! ROBBED!

Despite looking alike, Mary Kate and Ashley are actually fraternal twins.

I didn't realize this really until they (and myself really) were a little older! They sure pulled it off on Full House back in the day! Lol.
