It was revealed last week that movie star Halle Berry is related to former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Appearing on NBC's Tonight Show Monday, Berry said, "Isn’t that the worst thing you can imagine?” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
In the middle of their interview, Leno asked about this surprising revelation concerning Palin.
After scowling and shaking her head, Berry said, “I mean, isn’t that the worst thing you can imagine?”
When the applause died down, Leno replied, “No, she’s a very nice lady.”
“I’m sure she is,” Berry counted, “but you know.”
Leno couldn’t help himself saying, “Just not vice president of the United States.”
As the discussion continued, Berry mentioned that she’s also related to Aretha Franklin somehow.
“I really love this one,” said Berry.
I guess a woman has to have her priorities.
