Jerry asked Halle's "Cloud Atlas" co-star Tom Hanks about his relationship to Abraham Lincoln moments before she dropped the bomb.
"You wanna know who I’m related to?," said Berry. "Sarah Palin… That’s what I said! Ah!"
She added, "In some twisted way… somebody sent me this information that she was my distant…"
Hanks joked, "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."
Hanks is said to be a distant relative of Nancy Hanks, the mother of Abe Lincoln.
In a recent interview with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli about her upcoming film "Cloud Atlas," actress Halle Berry revealed she's related to politician Sarah Palin.
