Melanie Griffith and Dakota JohnsonStellar relatives - a frequent phenomenon, remember only Julia and Emma Roberts - aunt and niece, or Phil and Lily Collins - father and daughter. But we did not know in KnowVse.rf how many “interstellar” kinship relations exist that are not obvious at first glance. We want to tell you about them in this material.
Justin Bieber and Ryan GoslingAbout the relationship of these stars became known recently. The British Historical-Genealogical Society conducted a study, which resulted in that some celebrities have common ancestors. In the case of Justin Bieber and Ryan, it turned out that the young singer is Gosling ... an 11-kind brother. In the course of the same study, it turned out that Avril Lavigne was also associated with these celebrities: their common relatives were Mathurin Rua and Marguerite Bire, they lived in France until 1637, and then moved to Canada.
I wonder if Gosling is glad for such a relative?
Kate Middleton and Guy RichieMany believe that this is the global popularity of Guy Ritchie gave him the right to attend the wedding of Prince William.

Kate and Guy have long known about their kinship. Their common ancestors, the surgeon David Martineu and Sarah Meadows of Norfolk, were spouses and lived in the 18th century.

Matt Damon and Ben AffleckIt is no secret that the friendship of two famous actors has been going on for more than thirty years. They met in elementary school and since then are a model of real male affection. Over the years, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon went through a lot, managed to play together in several movies and even opened a production company Pearl Street Films. But few people know that these two guys are each other distant relatives. Ten generations ago, their common ancestor, William Knowlton, moved from England to America. Thanks to him, Damon and Affleck were born and became true friends.

Madonna and Gwen StefaniThese two pop singers not only have the same hair color and miniature figure - they have common roots. So it turned out that the famous pop star Madonna is a distant relative of Gwen Stefani. Gwen herself finds this fact very funny and notes that she always liked the work of the shocking blonde. The mother of her grandmother's sister sister Gwen wore the name Ciccone (and this is the real name of Madonna). Thus, both singers come from the same Italian family.
