Which A-List Actor Is A Distant Cousin Of Abraham Lincoln?

Actor Daniel Day Lewis might be portraying the Great Emancipator in the new film Lincoln, but it’s a-list star George Clooney who is a real descendant of the former president Abraham Lincoln!

Thanks to some in-depth digging from Ancestry.com, the site discovered that Clooney and Lincoln are half-first cousins, five times removed, by the way of Lincoln’s maternal grandmother Lucy Hanks.

We knew Clooney had a famous bloodline with his aunt being famed singer Rosemary Clooney, but who knew he also had some Presidential lineage as well? Can you see the family resemblance?
