Pressly: 'I'm Related To Elvis'

Actress JAIME PRESSLY is convinced she is a distant cousin of ELVIS PRESLEY's thanks to a family legend passed down by her grandfather. The My Name Is Earl star can't prove a link, but she was won over when she compared pictures of her relatives and the King. She explains, "When I was a little kid there was a lot of teasing going on about me being related to Elvis. "I went to my granddad and asked him (about it), and he said that years ago there was a family feud between the Presleys and half the family changed the spelling (of their name). "I asked my Uncle Tommy about it, and he went and got a picture of Elvis's dad and my grandfather and laid them down side by side - and they looked like brothers. "I've never seen anything look so close in my life. Same sideways smile, same teeth, same eyes."
