Well, it's not the craziest thing we've ever heard. They're both attractive to many people and enjoy being in the spotlight. And now it turns out that Halle Berry and Sarah Palin might also have (very, very) distant relatives, reports EURweb:

"In some twisted way (we are related)," the Oscar winner told Extra. "Somebody sent me this information that she was my distant (relative)."
