In a recent interview with Extra, actress Halle Berry revealed a surprising family connection.

“You wanna know who I am related to?” the actress asked Extra host Jerry Penacoli. “Sarah Palin.”

“In some twisted way . . . somebody sent me this information,” she explained.

Berry revealed the news while sitting with Tom Hanks to talk about their film “Cloud Atlas,” and the two laughed about Berry’s genealogical connection.

“This is the ‘Cloud Atlas’ continuum,” Hanks joked, referring to the idea in the film that souls are connected through time.

The movie, which is based on a 2004 book by the same name, hits theaters Oct. 26.
