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:

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.

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.

Ahhh, siblings. You can't live with them, you can't kill them. 

KIDDING! 

Today is National Siblings Day! The other day a year we pretend to like our built-in best friends because social media tells us to. (The first day is Christmas, because presents, obvs.)

In honor of National Siblings Day, which is probably a totally made up day created by someone attempting to bury the hatchet with a brother or sister by publicly professing that Imma let you finish by my sibling is the best sibling ever, our celebrity gossip editors thought it would be grand to take a look at some of our favorite star siblings:

From the fabulous to the feuding to the famewhores, Hollywood is rife with celebrity siblings. Now to decide if you and your siblings are more or less dysfunctional than they are.

Olivier Sarkozy and Mary-Kate Olsen are engaged! The former Full House child star is engaged to marry her boyfriend of nearly two years, reports confirm.

Sarkozy, 44, is the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy. A banker, he first stepped out with the fashionista, 27, back in early 2012.

Since then, they've been a frequent presence at basketball games and elsewhere in New York City, where they live together in a $6.25 million townhouse.

This will be Mary-Kate Olsen's first marriage and Sarkozy's second. He and his first wife Charlotte Bernard had two kids, Julien, 12, and Margo, 10.

That's not an issue for her, though. On the contrary, in fact.

"Mary-Kate has made him a better father. She remembers all the kids' special events," a source said of Olivier's wife-to-be. "She thinks he's a great dad."

PETA is ripping fashion designer duo Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for using animal pelts to create their latest backpack, which retails for around $17,000.

That's not a typo.

“What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for with shock value,” the animal rights group said in a statement regarding the pricey accessory.

PETA Hates Olsen Twins

PETA protesters (seen here in 2008) have gone after the Olsen Twins for years.

The backpack is a patchwork design made of various animal furs, a fact that has PETA livid with the twosome to the point of bitter name-calling.

"If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it's probably a Trollsen Twin - or somebody wearing one of their new totes," the group continues.

PETA calls on consumers not to purchase the products "which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals" or anything by the Olsens.

Ashley Olsen and Mary Kate Olsen, who jointly run The Row, captured the Womenswear Designer of the Year honors at the CFDA Fashion Awards in June.

They should probably be on the lookout for paint can assaults.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen turn 26 years old today ... which will totally make anyone who remembers them on Full House for freaking ever ago feel old.

Following their acting debut as infants, the twins appeared together in a variety of TV, film and video projects throughout their child and teenage years.

Through their company Dualstar, the Olsens branched out into fashion and have become some of the wealthiest women in the entertainment industry.

You gotta respect Mary-Kate and Ashley for becoming such moguls, if nothing else. The birthday girls work hard. Because we gotta ask ...

At the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards Monday night, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won the 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award.

For their work on their own line, the Row, obviously.

Johnny Depp was also lauded for his personal style, though just one night after rocking with The Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards, Depp opted to sit this one out.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

The 48-year-old Dark Shadows star wasn't present to accept his Fashion Icon award, so his friend and Cry-Baby director John Waters accepted on his behalf.

The night belonged to the Olsens, although Olivier Sarkozy, who is reportedly cozying up to Mary-Kate of late, was not on hand to support his girl. Oh well.

Here's a look at some of the big fashion winners from the event:

Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy, French president Nicolas Sarkozy's younger brother, are dating. It's a new relationship, but a legitimate one.

"It's true, they're dating, and she's definitely interested in him," an Olsen insider tells Us about her new romance with the 42-year-old Frenchman.

Though Olsen and Sarkozy are seventeen years apart (Olsen is 25), the source says their difference in age suits her just fine, as she's so mature.

MKO and NO

"MK is constantly complaining about boys not being mature enough for her," the source explains. "She got the kids out of her system."

"Now being a businesswoman dominates her time, and she is rarely impressed."

Page Six broke the news of the fashion designer's newest fling on Wednesday morning; a source tells the paper the pair have together for a month.

They're "head over heels" too, apparently.

The once-divorced Sarkozy split from his last girlfriend, Stella Schnabel, in March ... On April 25, Sarkozy and Olsen attended a Knicks game together.

Mary-Kate Olsen and Nate Lowman have been together a long time, and have maintained a relatively low-key, seemingly stable relationship. Impressive.

It's over now, though.

The actress-design mogul confirmed her split from Nate Lowman, Us Weekly reports, quoting their rep saying, "No, they are not [together]. It’s been a while."

That settles that.

Nate Lowman had a good run as Mr. Mary-Kate.

Olsen and Lowman began dating in 2008 after meeting through mutual friends. There were rumors he got her pregnant and in late 2009 that they got engaged.

Neither happened.

Last year, her rep told Us that celebrity gossip rumors that the two are engaged were "untrue." Not only that, they possibly were not together at all then. Oh well.

Here's wishing both the best in their return to the dating scene.

A ring buried in a box of chocolates. A popped question over a romantic dinner in Paris. A tearful acceptance and applause from a moved crowd of diners.

That sounds great, but despite recent celebrity gossip reports, it did not actually take place between Mary-Kate Olsen and her boyfriend Nate Lowman.

Olsen, who has been dating Lowman since 2008 after they met through some mutual friends, is neither engaged nor preparing a prenup with her love.

"Even though this information continues to be reported as 'fact,' the stories regarding Mary-Kate being engaged are not accurate," Olsen's rep said.

The actress-design mogul and her beau, who was rumored to have gotten Mary-Kate pregnant last December, recently attended Paris Fashion Week.

But no marriage plans, at least not yet. The only engagement she has on tap is to star in Beastly, alongside Neil Patrick Harris and Vanessa Hudgens.

Nate Lowman has no plans to be Mr. Mary-Kate Olsen. Yet.

Mary-Kate Olsen Quotes

It's weird to be called a celebrity or talk about it. I don't talk about being a celebrity in my business meetings. I don't talk about it with my friends. It's not a part of my life. It's a media perception of who I am.

Mary-Kate Olsen

He does not have a good temper.
