However, there are relationships that will actually take you by surprise. If someone came up to you and say that they were related, you would probably laugh.
Well, here are some of the related celebrities that you would never have guessed was possible.
Madonna and Hillary Clinton
Yes, you read that right! The Material Girl and the 2016 Democrat Presidentiable are 10th cousins.
They share the same great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandparents.
Al Roker and Lenny Kravitz
Their grandfathers were cousins.
Al Roker’s kids think it’s cool that they are related to Lenny Kravitz.
Kate Middleton and Elle, Dakota Fanning
If you think Kate Middleton married into royalty, think again! She was actually a descendant of King Edward III.
Siblings Elle and Dakota Fanning also descended from the same English king.
That makes them distant cousins. We don’t know which of the three are thrilled.
Rob Schneider and Elle King
Can you believe this guy is the father of Elle King? We find it hard to believe too!
Elle changed her last name, not to spite her father, but to make sure she will get famous for her talent and not who her father is. Someone raised his daughter right!
Prince Charles and Ralph Fiennes
These two famous people are actually 8th cousins – with both having links to James II of Scotland.
Well, Voldemort is considered royalty in the world of Harry Potter so this is not really a surprise.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
That’s cute. These two are not just best friends – they are related to each other!
They are 10th cousins and descended from William Knowlton Jr – a bricklayer who migrated from England to the US.
Kate Spade and David Spade
These two are actually in-laws! That’s not really a blood relationship but it is still one cool connection.
The famous designer married Andy Spade, David’s brother.
Shirley Maclaine and Warren Beatty
These two are siblings.
He is actually the younger brother of Shirley.
Snoop Dogg and Brandy
These two are first cousins.
You have to admit it is a surprising connection.
Sofia Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, and Nicolas Cage
These three are cousins. The different surnames threw you off, right? Well, the surname Coppola is what binds them together.
Jason’s mom is Talia Shire – a Coppola.
Nicolas Cage’s birth name is Nicolas Kim Coppola. See the connection now?
Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson
For some reason, this came as a surprise. Maybe because of the different surnames.
Although if you look at them together, you can see why they are related.
