Earlier today it was reported there was a study that Barack Obama and Brad Pitt were cousins, and that Angelina Jolie and Hillary Clinton were distantly related also. Pitt and Obama are ninth cousins, linked by Edwin Hickman, who died in Virginia in 1769, according to the genealogist with enough spare time on his hand to come up with the findings. Well, guess what fuck face? we’re all related. That’s evolution. Still feel special now?
However, it doesn’t take a genealogist to see that some of our most prominent celebrities and media figures are not just related, but separated at birth, such as Clinton adviser James Carville and Gollum.
