Washington D.C., Nov. 21 (ANI): Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner are not just co-stars in award winning 'American Hustle,' they are cousins too.

Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner are not just co-stars in award winning ‘American Hustle,’ they are cousins too.

The research team at Ancestory were trying to find whether Lawrence and ‘Hunger Games’ costar Josh Hutcherson were related because of their smiliar Kentucky roots.

In an interview with People, Michelle Ercanbrack, a family historian at Ancestry, said that the discovery of the connection between Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner was complete happenstance.

Ercanbrack said that once they realised Jennifer Lawrence had the same family in her tree (Kentucky), finding the relationship between the two was not only quick, it was really close too.

They found that the ‘American Hustle’ co-stars’ common ancestor was Kentucky farmer, Robert Tague, who happens to be Lawrence’s 5th great-grandfather and Renner’s 4th.

Ercanbrack said that it was shocking that both the actors had not bumped into each other at their family reunions.
