Brace yourselves. We’ve got some shocking news for you!

Halle Berry was left stunned after a fan pointed out the actress is a distant relative of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

In an interview with Extra the actress said, “Sarah Palin!” when asked if she was related to anyone illustrious, adding: “In some twisted way…somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative].”

The question came about because Cloud Atlas co-star Tom Hanks is said to be a distant relative of President Abraham Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks. 

Their movie also promotes the idea that very different people can be connected through time, and she hinted that in some way it may explain her connection to the ‘mama grizzly’, adding: “This is the Cloud Atlas (see a preview below) continuum without a doubt I’m telling you the connections that go through! It doesn’t matter who, what race, where, what time.”

Halle is seen here after doing some grocery shopping with daughter Nahla Aubry at Bristol Farms yesterday (October 15, 2012).
