Halle Berry shocked us all this week when she revealed that she is related to Sarah Palin. The Oscar-winning actress shared the news about her newly discovered relative in an interview with ‘Extra.’

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

As unexpected as her relation to the former governor of Alaska may be, it all made sense to Tom Hanks, Halle’s co-star in the sci-fi film “Cloud Atlas.” Hanks added, “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.”

Halle Berry did not reveal how she received the news. Websites like Ancestry.com and the NBC show “Who Do You Think You Are?” have been credited with celebrity relative pairings. Researchers have tied Justin Bieber to Celine Dion and President Obama to Brad Pitt.

No comment has been made by Palin about her alleged relation to the actress. We just hope the two can play catch up before the next family reunion.
