They actually started modeling at the age of seven and they were pretty much unstoppable ever since. Their mother, who was deep in the entertainment industry and had the right connections, also pushed them in that direction and whether they wanted to or not, they found themselves modeling for the biggest magazines in the world. It was one famous ad that they did, more like a bold move, of featuring on a huge billboard on Sunset Boulevard, that got the attention of the right man who would later push their career even further. That man was Playboy owner Hugh Hefner. Hefner immediately fell in love with the Barbi Twins and offered them the opportunity of a lifetime.
