It's rare, in the course of interviewing movie stars about their new film, that one of the actors leans over and smacks another in the head, then rips a soggy bagel out of his mouth. It's simply not done in most proper social settings, even among pampered film actors. But then, most movie stars aren't Jacob and Adam Worton, the blond, blue- eyed, 19-month-old identical twins who make their acting debuts - actually, their crawling, grinning and drooling debuts - in the new comedy Baby's Day Out. "WWAAAAAHHH!

Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez rallied the Yankees to a 5-3 victory over the AL Central champions in the opener, a possible playoff preview matching New York's Mike Mussina and Minnesota's Johan Santana.

FROM LEGENDS like Trish Stratus and Lita to current stars like Natalya and A.J. Lee, popular Divas are nothing new to the wrestling arena. However, there has never been a Diva duo quite like the Bella Twins. The unique pair, Brie and Nikki Bella, are famous inside the ring for their "Twin Magic," in which one of them will disappear under the ring during matches and then appear miraculously "revived" - having in reality switched places with her twin. They are so popular, they also star in the E!

The Minnesota Twins' 6-1 victory over visiting Baltimore yesterday was overshadowed by news of a fistfight last week between Twins leftfielder Dan Gladden and second baseman Steve Lombardozzi. The altercation apparently took place at Gladden's home last Thursday, an off day. Lombardozzi arrived for Friday's game against Baltimore with a black eye and scratches down the swollen left side of his face. Gladden suffered a cracked bone in his right ring finger, and his forehead still shows signs of the battle.

The shooting deaths of a brother and sister - 25-year-old twins who relatives say did everything together - have puzzled police and relatives.

Police say they have no suspects, and they were trying to determine why the twins drove to the West Park Plaza project at 44th and Market streets, where they were killed.

Twin brothers accused of causing a SEPTA trolley wreck that injured 57 people in Haverford Township in December were found delinquent yesterday in Delaware County Court. The verdict had the same effect as a conviction, had they been tried as adults, on 57 counts of aggravated assault and one each of causing a catastrophe and conspiracy, according to County Common Pleas Judge John V. Diggins. Diggins found the 15-year-old twins, residents of Upper Darby, delinquent after a four-day hearing that was closed to the public.

Danny DeVito and Arnold Scwarzenegger are twins. Get it? You see, Schwarzenegger is really huge and DeVito is really tiny, and they're supposed to be twins, who usually look at least a little like each other. Funny, huh? Did you follow that? Schwarzenegger and DeVito? Well, yes, "Twins" is a one-joke movie. Luckily, it's not a bad joke. And luckily, the film doesn't hit you over the head with it - representing a surprising restraint for something directed by Ivan Reitman ("Ghostbusters," "Stripes")

Twin Guatemalan girls who spent the first year of life joined at the top of the head have opened their eyes and shown other promising movement nearly three days after being surgically separated, doctors said yesterday.

Hours after free-agent pitcher Jack Morris and the Twins were unable to agree on proposals ranging from a two-year, $3.9 million contract to a four- year, $6.8 million deal, Phillies president Bill Giles said last night that Morris could forget about playing in Veterans Stadium if he came to Philadelphia armed with those figures. "To be very candid about it, if he has those numbers in mind, he may as well not come to Philadelphia," said Giles, whose team is one of four for which Morris said he would be interested in playing.

Using Wade and Waheem Lowman as a case study, it doesn't appear that twins feel each other's pain. At least not when one misses a wide-open dunk and the other one playfully snickers. The fraternal twins are seniors for Del-Val Charter who helped the Warriors lay waste to Simon Gratz, 74-44, Monday in Game 2 of a triple-header at Martin Luther King High during its MLK Day Invitational event. Wade, a 6-foot-5 lefty, missed a one-handed stuff on a breakaway when the game was well out of reach in the fourth quarter.

As complaints grow about her sister's emails, Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane on Friday back-pedaled in her defense of her office's handling of the messages. In her second statement in three days, Kane said she had never made a judgment, good or bad, about the emails of her twin, Ellen Granahan, a top prosecutor in her office. Kane said others on her staff evaluated her sister's messages because state ethics laws barred her from making disciplinary decisions about a relative.

HARRISBURG - State Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who has castigated prosecutors, judges, and others for exchanging offensive emails, failed to disclose that her twin sister - a top prosecutor on her staff - sent and received emails that mocked African Americans and Asians, joked about domestic abuse, and included photos of scantily clad men and women. Kane made public her sister's emails late Wednesday after coming under pressure from a Philadelphia prosecutor, who asserted that Kane's sister had sent or received 58 troubling emails - and Kane herself had received 11. The 49-year-old Democrat and her sister, Ellen Granahan, who heads the office's child predator unit, responded later in a joint statement in which they called the prosecutor's remarks "false and defamatory.

On one end of the field, a team leader was being hoisted into an ambulance. On the other end, the St. Joseph football team was trying to rally, fighting to overcome adversity. It was a metaphor for the Wildcats' 2015 season. Injury and uneven play could have derailed one of South Jersey's most consistent programs, but the players didn't let it happen. "We had to step up," said senior quarterback Salaam Horne. On the first play after star senior lineman Derek Lomax was carted off the field with a leg injury, Horne scrambled 15 yards for the game's first score, giving St. Joseph (10-2)

There never has been any question about the speed and skill of Salaam and A'Laam Horne. Much to their chagrin, there now is no doubt about the twins' toughness, either. That's because the seniors for the St. Joseph football team have both battled their way through injuries this season, refusing to miss a game despite playing at times "on one leg each," according to coach Paul Sacco. "At their best this year, they've been maybe at 80 percent [of full health]," Sacco said. "But they've been pretty good at 80 percent.
