Hollywood may seem like a big, vast world to most regular Joes, but, in the words of Disney, “it’s a small world after all.” For actress Halle Berry, it seems a whole lot smaller than she wants. The actress recently revealed her shock in discovering that she’s related to the highly controversial celebrity politician Sarah Palin.

Berry revealed the news while appearing on “Extra” to discuss her new film, Cloud Atlas, which, perfectly enough, explores the idea that we’re all connected in some way, even if we don’t want to be.

“You wanna know who I’m related to? Sarah Palin!” she said laughing. “That’s what I said, ‘Nooo!’ Some twisted way — somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative].”

“This is the Cloud Atlas continuum without a doubt, I’m telling you the connections that go through! It doesn’t matter who, what race, where, what time,” joked Tom Hanks, who sat next to Berry during the interview.

Well, we understand why Berry would want to keep that information under wraps. But, she’s not the only one with an unlikely relative. Check out some other unlikely related celebs below. –nicholas robinson
