Proving once again that you can’t pick your family, Halle Berry has revealed that she is related to former Alaskan governor, vice presidential candidate, and current political buffoon Sarah Palin.
The Oscar-winning actress made the revelation during an interview with Extra:
Jerry asked Halle’s "Cloud Atlas" co-star Tom Hanks about his relationship to Abraham Lincoln moments before she dropped the bomb.
"You wanna know who I’m related to?," said Berry. "Sarah Palin… That’s what I said! Ah!"
She added, "In some twisted way… somebody sent me this information that she was my distant…"
Hanks joked, "This is the Cloud Atlas continuum without a doubt I’m telling you the connections that go through! It doesn’t matter who, what race, where, what time."
Hanks is said to be a distant relative of Nancy Hanks, the mother of Abe Lincoln.
Snap that branch from your tree, Berry.
