It’s been some time since we pulled out one of these celebrity mindhole blowers that explore connections between celebrities that you didn’t know, knew at one time and forgot about, or did know and just didn’t care. There is, for instance, the 21 celebrities with first marriages you didn’t know about, 11 Celebrity Couples You Had No Idea Existed, 15 Entertainment Industry Couples You Didn’t Know Were Married, 20 Former Child Actors Who Had Sense Enough to Quit the Business, Actresses You Didn’t Know Were the Offspring of Famous Celebrities, Celebrities You Didn’t Realize Were 9/11 Truthers, and 20 Real-Life Celebrity Friendships that You Probably Didn’t Know About, etc. etc. Basically, these lists entail playing stumbleupon with celebrity biographies until enough connections come together to form a list.
