What do Barack Obama, Nicole Kidman, and Justin Bieber have in common?
They've all made a sex tape?
They're all left-handed, making them quite elite for more than just politics, movies, and music.
Between 7 and 10 percent of people worldwide are left-handed. Why does that matter?
Well, because quite a few of Hollywood's elite also happen to be southpaws, and an uncanny number of politicians around the globe are too, for that matter.
Take a look at this list of 21 left-handed celebrities to see the one thing that unites them all:
1. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.
2. Barack Obama
The POTUS, Barack Obama, is but one of many Presidents who are (or were) left-handed.
3. Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber is left-handed. It's apparently his preferred hand for stogie smoking.
5. Prince William
Prince William is left-handed like his dad. Since this seems to be genetic, maybe the Royal Baby will follow in their footsteps.
6. Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker is a southpaw! That means her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw was too!
7. Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts' dominant hand is the left one. She probably would've grabbed the Oscar with it if she'd won.
8. Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton, grandfather-to-be, is a leftie like so many other Presidents have been
9. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
While it's typical for only ONE twin in a pair to be left-handed, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are BOTH lefties.
10. Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise is a leftie. He's also dating Laura Prepon. Those two things probably aren't related at all.
11. Oprah Winfrey
If being left handed in any way helped Oprah Winfrey become so successful, then we want to be left handed too.
12. Phil Mickelson
Apparently, being left handed gives people a predisposition to being good at golf. That's the case for Phil Mickelson.
13. Demi Moore
Demi Moore had three babies with ex-husband Bruce Willis. Both of them are left-handed, so there's a good chance their girls are, too.
14. Bill Gates
Billionaire computer genius Bill Gates is a leftie. Turns out being right-brained is really great for guys like him.
15. Matt Lauer
Matt Lauer keeps his mic-hand strong...errr...his left hand. Because he's left-handed.
16. Jon Stewart
Jon Stewart emphatically uses his left hand to wave around his pen during tapings of The Daily Show. It's become a thing of his.
17. Celine Dion
Celine Dion is a Canadian leftie. Not that there's any correlation. She's Canadian AND a leftie.
18. Nicole Kidman
Australian stunner and wife to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman is a southpaw from Down Under.
19. Seth Rogan
Seth Rogan is a southie! Wonder if that's the hand he uses to toke or if he keeps that one free for mocking KimYe?
20. Bruce Willis
Bruce Willis, currently married to Emma Heming, does not have an expendable left hand. (I mean, who does, really, but still.)
Being left-handed is commonly associated with intelligence and creativity, not to mention those terrible ink smears along the side of their dominant hand.
Seriously, what's a leftie have to do to get the right kind of desk around here??
Despite their minority status, left-handed people are more likely to excel in music, math, and sports; based on scientific studies and anecdotal evidence, that seems to hold true.
Just don't expect Bieber to be a poster child for International Left Handers Day.
