Halle Berry Exclusive: 'I'm Related to Sarah Palin'

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.

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.
