Halle Berry: “I’m Related to Sarah Palin”

Could Halle Berry’s next family reunion take place in Alaska?

The Cloud Atlas star, 46, recently revealed a surprising genealogical connection — to former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, 48.

“You wanna know who I’m related to?” Berry said in a recent video interview with Extra’s Jerry Penaoli. “Sarah Palin!”

The Oscar-winning actress (mom to daughter Nahla, 4, and engaged to actor Olivier Martinez) didn’t specify how she was related to the politician, except to say, “In some twisted way…somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative].”
