George Clooney is so money and he doesn't even know it! Specifically, the $5 bill and the penny!
That's right, it turns out the Ocean's 11 star is distantly related to Abraham Lincoln, our 16th vampire hunter president!
Genealogy website Ancestry.com stumbled across the relation while studying the late president for the film Lincoln! Researcher Michelle Ercanbrack says:
"We noticed there were similarities between the names and places of Abraham Lincoln's tree and George Clooney's tree. They both have deep roots in Kentucky, so once we honed in on that we were able to find a connection between the two."
It turns out through Lincoln's maternal grandmother, the two are half-first cousins five times removed. We're not exactly sure what that means, but we're guessing since Abe lived 4 score and 3 more score and then a couple more years ago, the connection is pretty distant.
George himself couldn't be reached for comment on the matter.
It's OK, George, we understand. We have Republicans in our family too! LOLz!
