Jennifer Lawrence & Jeremy Renner Happen to Be Related!

Jennifer Lawrence just so happens to be related to one of her former co-stars… Jeremy Renner!

The 25-year-old actress and the 44-year-old actor worked together on the movie American Hustle and it was just discovered by Ancestry that they are 5th cousins once removed.

“We were researching Jeremy Renner and noticed he had a Tague family line from Kentucky, which looked familiar. Once we realized Jennifer Lawrence had the same family in her tree, finding the relationship between the two was not only quick, it was really close,” family historian Michelle Ercanbrack told People.

The ancestor that the stars have in common is Kentucky farmer Robert Tague, who was Jen‘s fifth great-grandfather and Jeremy‘s fourth.

“The similarities between the two are striking: both have deep Kentucky roots, both are parts of wildly successful franchises, and both play family-oriented, freedom-fighting archers,” the historian added, referring to Jennifer‘s Hunger Games character Katniss and Jeremy‘s Avengers character Hawkeye.
