Brad Pitt & Spike Lee

This might be the coolest family connection ever -- Brad Pitt and Spike Lee ARE COUSINS ... 12th cousins sure ... BUT STILL!!!

The people over at Geni.com (a genealogy website) just made the bizarre connection -- you can see in the diagram how Brad and Spike are connected 12 generations ago. Basically, Brad's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather was the brother of Spike's great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother.

Simple.

Funny, the above photo of Brad and Spike was taken at the Governors Ball in L.A. earlier this week -- and they had no idea they're family.

Brad Pitt will kill himself if he wakes up one morning and sees Spike Lee in the mirror.

Wouldn't this mean that at some point, one of Brad Pitts' ancestors owned and/or raped one of Spike Lee' ancestors?
