Celebrity Twins: Joel And Benji Madden

Joel and Benji Madden are the twin bad boys of Good Charlotte. Check em out on Kidzworld’s Celebrity Twins!


Benji is five minutes older than his brother, Joel but that’s not the only difference between these two punk-rockers.


From PETA To UNICEF

Benji is a vegetarian who works with PETA to promote animal rights and the veggie lifestyle, but Joel refuses to be shown up by his big brother. Joel is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and he and long-time girlfriend Nicole Richie created The Richie Madden Children’s Foundation in 2006. The charity keeps an online registry to promote much-needed supplies for disadvantaged families.




Good Charlotte And Beyond

Joel and Benji are best known for Good Charlotte, the world-famous band they started back in their high school days with friends Aaron Escolopio and Paul Thomas. Good Charlotte has released five multi-platinum albums, won numerous awards and toured the world to meet their legions of fans. After years of success with Good Charlotte, the Madden boys are starting to venture into other projects as well.

  • In late 2009, Benji joined Taintstick, the band fronted by professional MMA fighter, radio talk show host and pro skateboarder, Jason Ellis.
  • Benji and Joel started the now-defunct clothing line, MADE, but changed the name to DCMA in 2006. Benji recently got on the latest DCMA designs tattooed on his neck.


  • Paris Hilton And Nicole Richie

    Joel and Benji made headlines when they dated celeb frenemies, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. Benji and Paris weren’t to be, but Joel and Nicole now have two kids together—a daughter named Harlow Winter Kate Madden and a son named Sparrow James Midnight Madden.
