In the movie Leaves of Grass, Edward Norton plays identical twin brothers.  It's not a far stretch for the actor, who actually is a twin himself.

While at the Toronto Film Festival, Norton, 39, talked about working with his twin brother on his latest film, Pride And Glory.

"My brother produced the movie," he told reporters during a press conference for the movie.  "And he did a great job.  We've been creatively working together for a long time."

The Golden Globe winner said despite the closeness he and his brother now share, it wasn't always easy growing up with a twin.

"My mother dressed us the same," he said.  "I remember when I was young, I hated it.  I always felt like I didn't want to look like anybody else, so – I don't remember what age – but I finally said 'Mom!' ".

Norton continues, "Home is as chaotic as the rest of the world.  Growing up, that was my experience."
