Some celebrities are connected to each other through weird ways . . . a.k.a. NOT because they were co-stars, or because they hooked up.  Here are some examples:

1.  Elton John is Eminem’s AA sponsor.

2.  Keanu Reeves met Dolly Parton when he was a kid, because his mother made costumes for her, including her infamous Playboy Bunny outfit.  Mom also knew Alice Cooper, who once BABYSAT Keanu.

3.  Cameron Diaz went to high school with Snoop Dogg, and she’s pretty sure she bought weed from him.

4.  Meghan Markle did the invitations for Robin Thicke’s 2005 wedding, because she was working as a calligrapher before she made it big.

5.  Kevin James and WWE star Mick Foley went to high school together, and were on the same wrestling team.

6.  Mara Wilson from “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Matilda” is cousins with conservative media mogul Ben Shapiro.

7.  Scarlett Johansson and Jack Antanoff dated in high school.

8.  Ed Sheeran slept on Jamie Foxx’s couch for six weeks when he first moved to L.A.

9.  Martin Luther King Jr. paid the hospital bills when Julia Roberts was born . . . because Julia’s parents let his kids attend their theater school at a time when few programs would admit black children.

10.  Samuel L. Jackson was an usher at Martin Luther King Jr.’s funeral.  A year later, during a protest at Morehouse College, Jackson and others took the schoolboard hostage.

One of those board members was Martin Luther King Sr.
