The following excerpt is from the November 4, 2012 edition of hecklerspray.com:
This week, an expert at Ancestry.com revealed that George Clooney and Abraham Lincoln are distantly related. And the timing is just oh-so perfect, as ‘Lincoln’ is set to hit theaters in limited release on November 9.
Apparently, George is a half-first cousin five times removed. Lincoln’s mom, Nancy Hanks, was the half-sister of Clooney’s fourth great-grandma, Marry Ann Sparrow.
