Gwyneth Paltrow & Sophia Bush: Relatives of Shooting Victims

Gwyneth Paltrow and Sophia Bush have a direct connection to the tragic Arizona shooting that left U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition.

Gwyneth is a cousin of Rep. Giffords, but has never had the chance to meet her.

She told ET in a statement, “Although I have never had the pleasure of meeting congresswoman Giffords, my thoughts and prayers are with her and her family as well as the other victims of this horrible act of senseless violence.”

Sophia tweeted that she is the second cousin of Christina Green, the 9-year-old girl who was killed during the tragedy.

“There are no words to explain what my cousin’s family is going through in Arizona. How can this be? Violence is never the answer,” Sophia said.

We send our prayers to all those affected by the tragic event.
