They could each enjoy a long career as Major League Baseball relievers, but the following left-handed stars have chosen a different field in which to utilize their eccentricity.

Some are singers. Some are actors and actresses. One is the President of the United States!

But they all have one thing in common: they write with their non-right hand. So weird, right?!?

So, in honor of Left Handers Day (really, it's a thing; look it up), THG is excited to presented snapshots of 21 famous southpaws.

They may hate the set-up of spiral notebooks, but we love what they add to our lives. Long may they be left(y) behind!

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.

P.S. Did you also know that yesterday was World Elephant Day?

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:

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.

Phil Mickelson won the 2013 British Open Championship with a superb final round as the other contenders, including Tiger Woods, faded from contention.

Mickelson captured the famed Claret Jug for the first time and his fifth major championship with a 5-under 66 Sunday, tied for the best round of the week.

The left-hander birdied four of the last six holes to win by three shots and emphatically erase the memory of this year's U.S. Open heartbreak.

"This is such an accomplishment for me," Mickelson said. "I never knew if I'd be able to develop the game and the shots to play links golf effectively."

"To play what is arguably the best round of my career, to putt the way I putted, to shoot the round of my life, it just feels amazing to win the Claret Jug."

Mickelson, 43, has eight runner-up finishes in golf's four major tournaments, but has now won three of the four in his remarkable Hall of Fame career.

Congrats, Phil!
