According to Ancestry.com, DeGeneres is actually related to ... pop icon Madonna. So DeGeneres played up her family tree on the latest episode of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Apparently Madonna and DeGeneres are 11th cousins, connected by a common 16th century ancestor. Ancestry.com has previously connected 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson with a 16th century woman accused of witchcraft, and also connected President Barack Obama with businessman Warren Buffett.

And, according to DeGeneres, here are some other people whom she is related to: Halle Berry, Mark Wahlberg, Princess Diana, and Richard Gere, among others. DeGeneres had this to say to Gere: "So, Richard, unfortunately now there's two reasons we can't date."
