With only about 10% of the population being left-handed, we can see why lefties would want to know which celebs are a part of their ranks! Unfortunately, though, Ben Affleck is really more of a right hand man.

It's certainly possible that the Argo director is ambidextrous, but we've seen no reports indicating that — and the future-Batman signs autographs with his right hand. So it would appear that Ben is at least functionally right-handed. Sorry, lefties.

According to her IMDB profile, Jennifer Aniston's first movie role was technically an extra in the so-bad-it's-good 1988 hit Mac and Me. She's in this clip at about 0:28, wearing a blue sweater.

The camp classic is a favorite of Paul Rudd's, who shows a scene from the film in every Conan appearance he makes.

Jen's second film role was Ava in the 1990 TV movie Camp Cucamonga, and her first named role on the big-screen was Tory in the 1993 horror flick Leprechaun.

Zac Efron, do you even lift? As it turns out, the answer is yes.

After years of staying lean and petite during his days as Troy Bolton in the High School Musical series, Zac landed a role as a Marine in The Lucky One… which required him to bulk up. Zac ended up gaining 18 pounds for the 2012 film, all of it muscle.

"Look, I was just a musical-theater guy," Zac told Men's Health at the time. "I would have been happy to do that for the rest of my life. But there's something about me that's always searching for the more challenging route, and the actors that I really admire are always picking things out of their comfort zones, trying to stretch to see where they can go. It just seems like the road less traveled."

So, 5 days a week for 4 months, Zac filled up on protein and hit the gym — and eventually, he could lift our hearts a ton of weight.

"You get this strange sense of power as those weights increase," he said of the experience in that same Men's Health interview. "By the end of the movie I didn't recognize myself."

It would appear that Zac has kept that momentum going — he's frequently shirtless as a fratboy in new flick Neighbors, which comes out on May 9, and he's still pretty ripped.
