Why ‘Yellowstone’ Star Cole Hauser’s Wife Looks So Familiar
Yellowstone star Cole Hauser has been married to his wife Cynthia for 15 years and the couple share three children. She’s a professional photographer who loves to show off her family on Instagram. But fans have probably seen her face in a lot of other places. Why does Cynthia Daniel look so familiar?
The ‘Yellowstone’ star comes from Hollywood royalty
Cole Hauser has been a working Hollywood actor for three decades in both TV and movies. But it wasn’t until he landed the role of ranch hand Rip Wheeler on Yellowstone that he became the star of a hit TV series.
He was born and raised in the LA entertainment scene and he comes from Hollywood royalty. Cole is the son of actor Wings Hauser and the founder of the Warner Sisters film production company, Cass Warner.
His paternal grandfather was Hollywood golden-era screenwriter and Oscar winner Dwight Hauser. His maternal grandparents are Betty Warner and Milton Sperling, a successful producer and screenwriter in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Going back even further, Betty’s father — Hauser’s great-grandfather — was Harry M. Warner, one of the founders of Warner Bros. Studios.
Cole Hauser has some classic 1990s films on his acting resume
Cole started acting at the age of 17, and his first credit was alongside his dad in the 1992 film Frame-Up II. That same year, Hauser appeared in School Ties with future Oscar winners Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
Hauser and Affleck also appeared together in 1994’s Dazed and Confused with future Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey. And, he went on to star in the film that won Damon and Affleck their Best Original Screenplay Oscars – Good Will Hunting.
The ‘Yellowstone’ star’s wife looks familiar because she is a pretty famous identical twin
Like Cole, Cynthia got her start in the entertainment industry at a young age. Known as Cynthia Daniel at the time, she started modeling at the age of 11 alongside her identical twisted sister, Brittany Daniel. This might ring a few bells for fans because the Daniel twins appeared in a number of classic Doublemint gum commercials in the late 80s/early 90s as the Doublemint Twins.
But that wasn’t Cynthia’s only appearance in front of the camera. From 1994 to 1997, Cynthia starred alongside her sister on Sweet Valley High as Liz Wakefield.
She also starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg in the 1995 film The Basketball Diaries. And, she made an appearance on the short-lived That 80’s Show, a spinoff of That 70’s Show.
Brittany Daniel has a lengthy acting resume
Cynthia eventually shifted her career focus to photography, as well as being a wife and mom. At the same time, Brittany continued her acting career. The sisters were born just five minutes apart, and look absolutely identical. So, it’s hard for some fans to tell who’s who.
Brittany appeared in Sweet Valley High as Jess Wakefield. She also appeared with her sister in The Basketball Diaries and That 80’s Show. But, she went on to play David Spade’s love interest in Joe Dirt and Joe Dirt 2. She appeared in the Super Troopers sequel Club Dread, and played one of the Vandergeld sisters in White Chicks.
On TV, she made appearances on That 70’s Show, Dawson’s Creek, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, The Game, Blackish, and Black AF.
The ‘Yellowstone’ star and his wife aren’t afraid to show their love on social media
Cole often appears on Cynthia’s social media, as do their sons — Ryland and Colt — and daughter, Steely Rose. The couple isn’t afraid to show their love on Instagram, and she gushes about her man every chance she gets.
In a Father’s Day post, Cynthia shared a family photo and wrote in the caption,”Happy Father’s Day Baby! @colehauser22 Thank you for always giving your heart and soul to everything you do for us. We love and adore you.”
Yellowstone season 4 is expected to premiere in November on the Paramount Network. Seasons 1 through 3 are available on Peacock.
