Last week we learned that Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne are distant cousins, and that spawned a little research to turn up some more unlikely, yet related celebs but here’s the most surprising one so far: Halle Berry and Sarah Palin. It felt wrong even writing that, but that’s the word according to Berry herself.
In an interview with Extra, the actress, who currently appears in “Cloud Atlas,” dropped the bombshell. “You wanna know who I'm related to? Sarah Palin!" she said laughing. "That's what I said, 'Nooo!' Some twisted way -- somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative]."
How long were you planning on keeping this information under wraps Halle? We hope that Sarah Palin never gets a hold of this information, because we can’t imagine her passing up the chance to use this to her advantage.
Catch the presidential debates at 9PM on Tuesday night (October 16) and be thankful that Palin isn't involved.
