Talent tends to run in the family and the entertainment industry is a small world, which means many of your favorite Hollywood celebrities could actually be related.
Lance Bass recently appeared on the Ancestry show '2 Lies & a Leaf' to explore his family history. Most people might hope to find they're distantly related to a founding father or a royal, but he discovered a familial connection to modern royalty - the Princess of Pop, Britney Spears! The NSYNC alum was shocked and delighted at the revelation. "For some reason I always felt like we looked like family, even when we were kids. I mean, this means so much to me. She is like family to me, so the fact that we are blood-related is amazing." The research revealed that Bass and Spears are sixth cousins once removed.
