Someone got the short end of the stick on that deal!
We're all related, in one way or another, but thankfully we're also mostly un-related enough that it's not creepy if we fall in love with a way distant cousin.
Tom Hanks and Halle Berry star in the upcoming film Cloud Atlas, and they recently shared intel on some famous branches in their family trees.
Tom will be narrating the film Killing Lincoln and he revealed he is a third cousin, four times removed, of President Abraham Lincoln — through Honest Abe's mother, Nancy Hanks.

In slightly less impressive news, 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.
In other celeb genealogy news, Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling, Celine Dion, and Avril Lavigne were recently revealed to all be distant Canadian cousins.
And you can’t tell us these celebs aren’t somehow related too!
