U.S. presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is delighting in reports she's a distant cousin of both Madonna and Angelina Jolie.
The Democrat admits she's "thrilled" by a new family tree study that links her to the two superstars and humanitarians.
She says, "I have no idea whether there is any truth to it (study) or not, but they're both strong independent women.
"They've also been very quick to give back to charities and humanitarian causes, so it would be an honour to be related to them."
In the same familial study, Clinton's Democratic opponent for the presidency, Barack Obama, was linked to Jolie's partner Brad Pitt.
