You know how there are some people in your family you just don’t ever claim. I would imagine if I was related to Sarah Palin she would be that person for me, but for some reason the unlikeliest of relatives decided to share that information in an interview with Extra TV: Halle Berry.
Halle was doing an interview with Tom Hanks for their upcoming film, “Cloud Atlas” and as they were discussing the fact that Tom is a distant relative of Nancy Hanks, Abraham Lincoln’s mother, Halle divulged this little tidbit:
“You wanna know who I’m related to?,” she asked the interviewer. “Sarah Palin”
Insert ghastly shriek.
Halle responds: “That’s what I said! “Noooooooo! Ah!”
After the shock subsided, Tom asked was there some sort of DNA analysis done to find out this information, and Halle said:
“In some twisted way… somebody sent me this information that she was my distant…”
The jokes kept going at that point and Halle’s voice trailed off but I’m sure the word she was going to use was cousin. I’d definitely say Tom got the long end of the celebrity relative stick. I wonder how Sarah Palin feels about this.
