Hollywood's In Crowd: Shawn Ashmore
Life has always been a good-natured competition for Shawn Ashmore and his older (by one minute)
The twins were living in a rural town in Alberta when an agent found them through a Canadian
multiple-births - or, as Shawn calls it, a "multiple rug rats" - organization.
Soon they were doing ads and competing for roles. Aaron (the "more aggressive brother," he says) got
parts in "Skulls 2" and other movies, but it was little Shawn who hit the big time with the Disney
Channel's "In a Heartbeat," and as Iceman in "X-Men."
UNFULFILLED PASSION: Shawn has an even bigger part in "X-Men 2," which opens May 2. It includes mutant
love scenes with the superhero Rogue, played by Anna Paquin. "Rogue and I are dating," Shawn recently told
YM magazine, "but since her touch harms people, we can't even kiss."
