George Clooney is a Hollywood dreamboat who’s as famous for his activities with the ladies as he is for his acting. Keeping that in mind, it’s hard not to be surprised when learning which American president Clooney’s related to. Give up? His relation is to none other than Honest Abe himself, Abraham Lincoln, the mild-mannered, log cabin-born president from Illinois. Abe’s mom, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, is a distant relative of Clooney’s, making him the 16th president’s half cousin five times removed. Wait, “Hanks”? Yep, Tom Hanks is related to them both.
