Well it looks like the next family reunion for Halle Berry may take place in Alaska this time.
The Cloud Atlas star, 46, recently revealed a surprising genealogical connection — to former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, 48.
Halle told Extra (via UsMagazine.com), she’s related to Sarah Palin. She didn’t explain their exact connection, just said someone sent her information that the former VP candidate was her distant relation.
Berry isn’t the only Cloud Atlas cast member with political connections. Her co-star Tom Hanks is a third cousin, four generations removed, of one of America’s most famous presidents: Abraham Lincoln. Hanks, 56, has known about the link since he was a child and recently signed on to host the upcoming TV docu-drama Killing Lincoln.
“I’m related to Abraham Lincoln, and the members of my branch of the family are either cousins or in-laws or poor relations,” the Oscar-winning star once said. “So when I was at school, guess which president I was always doing essays on.”
That’s a shocker!!
