Surprise Of The Day: This Academy Award Winning Actress Is Related To Sarah Palin

You can choose your friends, but you definitely can’t choose your family members. Oscar recipient Halle Berry knows this all too well, as she screamed after learning that she is a “distant” relative of former Alaska governor and staunch Republican Sarah Palin.
“You know who I’m related to?” Berry said during an Extra interview alongside “Cloud Atlas” co-star Tom Hanks. “Sarah Palin.”
The interviewer screamed “no,” to which Berry laughed and responded, “That’s what I said. No! Some twisted way, someone sent me this information.”
Though this would be good news to some, Berry has been an Obama supporter since 2009 and has even considered asking the president to crack down on paparazzi. We’re guessing she’d rather be in the shoes of Hanks, who is supposedly related to Abraham Lincoln’s mother…or anyone else, really!
