(ANI): Actress Jaime Pressly believes that she distantly related to
legendary singer Elvis Presley, thanks to a family legend passed
down by her grandfather. Though the My Name Is Earl star can't
prove a link, she was convinced when she compared pictures of her
relatives and the King.
"When I was a little kid there was a lot of teasing going on
about me being related to Elvis," Contactmusic quoted her, as
saying. "I went to my granddad and asked him (about it), and he
said that years ago there was a family feud between the Presleys
and half the family changed the spelling (of their name).
"I asked my
Uncle Tommy about it, and he went and got a picture of Elvis's dad
and my grandfather and laid them down side by side and they looked
like brothers. "I've never seen anything look so close in my life.
Same sideways smile, same teeth, same eyes," she added.
