Alex and Addison Hoover, lacrosse players, twins and juniors at Corona del MarHigh in Newport Beach, Calif.
YOU MIGHT KNOWTHEM FROM
The Bold and the Beautiful, in which they played Steffy and Phoebe Forresterfrom 2005 to '06; they're now in two Nickelodeon shows, Drake & Josh andNed's Declassified School Survival Guide, and they are also appearing in aPringles commercial.
Addison, number 22, plays attack and was the team's top scorer, with 60 goalsthrough 15 games this spring; Alex, number 2, who had scored 31 goals, playsmidfield and is her team's defensive stopper.
Both can cry on command. "If I cry now, my mom doesn't believe me,"Addison says.
SIGN THEY REALLYLOVE LACROSSE
They abandoned their independent academic program—which gave them moreflexibility to act—and enrolled in a regular high school so they could play ona team.
Each was suspended for a game this season in separate incidents for showing toomuch attitude to the school staff. "I snapped a little," Alex says ofher incident. "It's not something I'm proud of."
HOW THEY FEELABOUT THE OLSEN TWINS
"We're huge fans," Alex says. "Obviously we love them and look upto them a little as role models."
They both want to play lacrosse in college but where? In Southern Californiathey would be near Hollywood but would have to play for a lesser program; goingto the East Coast means a chance to play Division I. Wherever they end up,they'll end up together. "We're inseparable," Alex says. "Beingaway from each other for a day is nerve-racking."
