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:

21 Left Handed Celebrities
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.
View As List
Lady Gaga

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.


Barack Obama

2. Barack Obama

The POTUS, Barack Obama, is but one of many Presidents who are (or were) left-handed.


Justin Bieber

3. Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is left-handed. It's apparently his preferred hand for stogie smoking.


Angelina Jolie

4. Angelina Jolie

One half of famous couple Brangelina, Angelina Jolie is a leftie.


Prince William

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.


Sarah Jessica Parker

6. Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker is a southpaw! That means her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw was too!


Julia Roberts

7. Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts' dominant hand is the left one. She probably would've grabbed the Oscar with it if she'd won.


Bill Clinton

8. Bill Clinton

Bill Clinton, grandfather-to-be, is a leftie like so many other Presidents have been


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

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.


Tom Cruise

10. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise is a leftie. He's also dating Laura Prepon. Those two things probably aren't related at all.


Oprah Winfrey

11. Oprah Winfrey

If being left handed in any way helped Oprah Winfrey become so successful, then we want to be left handed too.


Phil Mickelson

12. Phil Mickelson

Apparently, being left handed gives people a predisposition to being good at golf. That's the case for Phil Mickelson.


Demi Moore

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.


Bill Gates

14. Bill Gates

Billionaire computer genius Bill Gates is a leftie. Turns out being right-brained is really great for guys like him.


Matt Lauer

15. Matt Lauer

Matt Lauer keeps his mic-hand strong...errr...his left hand. Because he's left-handed.


Jon Stewart

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.


Celine Dion

17. Celine Dion

Celine Dion is a Canadian leftie. Not that there's any correlation. She's Canadian AND a leftie.


Nicole Kidman

18. Nicole Kidman

Australian stunner and wife to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman is a southpaw from Down Under.


Seth Rogan

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?


Bruce Willis

20. Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis, currently married to Emma Heming, does not have an expendable left hand. (I mean, who does, really, but still.)


Morgan Freeman

21. Morgan Freeman

Morgan Freeman is a leftie. You're reading this caption in Morgan Freeman's voice right now.


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.

The four Academy Award winning legends starring in the upcoming film, Last Vegas, surely have a lot to say about their careers and working with each other.

Screen Junkies could have talked to them about all sorts of things during a recent interview ... but instead chose to have them each recite popular song lyrics:

  • Morgan Freeman: "The Fox" by Ylvis
  • Robert DeNiro: "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus
  • Michael Douglas: "Chinese Food" by Alison Gold
  • Kevin Kline: "Best Song Ever" by One Direction

There's even a Morgan Freeman/The Fox mashup at 3:10. Enjoy:

Twerking. Even that sounds important when Morgan Freeman talks about it, as he proved in an interview on HLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade.

After prodding from the anchor, the acting legend read aloud the definition of Twerking - celebrating its addition to the Oxford Dictionary - for the uninitiated.

Never before has the dance craze carried such gravitas:

Thanks in large part to Miley Cyrus Twerking, the word is everywhere these days, though there has been some debate over what it actually entails.

Fortunately, Morgan Freeman as here to clear that up.

Twerk, verb: "To dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner, usually involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."

Gotta hand it to Morgan Freeman on this one.

After falling asleep during a live interview with a Seattle TV station and leaving Now You See Me co-star Michael Caine to field the questions, the snooze-fest went viral.

But the self-aware actor later told People in a statement, "I wasn't actually sleeping. I'm a beta tester for Google Eyelids. I was merely updating my Facebook page!"

About halfway through the interview about the film, which opens May 31, the 75-year-old Freeman nodded off as clips from the movie were shown.

When the cameras returned to the legendary pair, his head was down and his eyes were shut for a minute at least while Caine continued the Q&A.

Who knew Morgan was so high tech.

Morgan Freeman nodded off during a live TV interview yesterday morning as Michael Caine enthusiastically discussed their new movie Now You See Me.

During an appearance with Q13 FOX News This Morning, Caine fielded the anchors' questions with gusto while Freeman dozed off next to him.

Pro's pro that he is, Morgan snaps to once he's addressed by name. Check it out:

The movie opens May 31. Hopefully this isn't a harbinger of audience reactions.

UPDATE: It appears as if Freeman did NOT release the following statement, despite online claims to the contrary. But we still believe the opinion expressed is worth debating...

Adam Lanza. The name of the assailant who gunned down 20 children and six adults inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut last week has been all over the news.

And that's a serious problem, according to Morgan Freeman.

With the possibility of new gun control laws up for debate, the Oscar winner has released a statement in which he points the blame for these types of tragedies directly at CNN, Fox News and other media outlets.

Morgan Freeman has reportedly dumped his step-granddaughter, E'Dena Hines, for another young girlfriend named Ellie, according to tabloid reports.

The story of the 74-year-old reportedly dating E'Dena Hines a few years ago. Hines, now 29, was even said to be a teen when they were first involved.

That's ... probably not even true. But it was never denied, and the rumor stuck.

However, it seems that the Academy Award winner has moved on from pursuing his own step-granddaughter to relationship to a younger Filipino woman.

"Morgan rang in the New Year by planting a passionate kiss on his new gal Ellie, who's an accountant in Los Angeles," a source said.

Friends believe the relationship could be serious because Morgan also invited Ellie's mom and sister. "Morgan was having a great time," the source says.

"They kept kissing. They're definitely an item."

Sure they are. Good to know.

Herman Cain will never occupy the Oval Office, but he's become a popular figure on the campaign trail this fall, and as an African-American, his rebuttal to Morgan Freeman's controversial comments about the Tea Party carries some weight.

If you missed it, Freeman called the Tea Party racist on Piers Morgan Tonight Friday, criticizing the conservative movement's disdain for President Obama.

GOP presidential candidate Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, disagrees.

Appearing on Fox's Your World with Neil Cavuto, the Hermanator said:

"Well, first of all, I doubt if Morgan Freeman, with all due respect, who's a great actor, has ever been to a Tea Party. Most of the people that are criticizing the Tea Parties... about having a racist element, they have never been to a Tea Party."

"I just think that it's sad that they're so short-sighted understanding what the Tea Party citizen movement is all about. I'm not offended by it, because it doesn't slow down my momentum. It doesn't slow down the reaction I get from people."

Cain, whose campaign is riding high after winning the Florida straw poll, added, "Name-calling is something that's going to continue, because they don't know how to stop this movement. And this movement is making a big difference in politics."

"A lot of the traditional Democrats are moving to the center or moving over to vote for conservatives. They're taking another look at a Herman Cain."

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

To say Morgan Freeman is not a fan of the Tea Party movement would be putting it mildly. In an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Freeman labels Tea Partiers radicals whose sole aim is to oust President Obama from office.

"But it's not a racist thing?" asked Morgan.

"It is a racist thing," replied Freeman.

"Their publicly stated policy is to do whatever it takes to see that Obama serves only one term. What underlies that? Screw the country," Freeman lamented.

"We're going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here."

"We're supposed to be better than that. It shows the weak, dark underside of America," said the Oscar-winner of those "controlling the Republican Party."

There are plenty of racists out there, but the whole Tea Party? We'd be more concerned that these people think hurricanes result from God judging gays.

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?
