We often hear that people who are left handed are gifted, so it is not surprising to find famous names in various fields are actually lefties.
The United States’ 44th president, Barack Obama, is left handed and not the first president to be so endowed. He is the eighth left-handed president after James Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Henry Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
An actress who is famously known for her luscious lips, action movies, humanitarian efforts and a bombastic body is a lefty too. That actress is none other than Angelina Jolie.
A person who helped change the course of history and is said to be left handed is Jeanne d’Arc or Joan of Arc—a French heroine. Born a peasant girl, she managed to lead the French army to some important victories during the Hundred Years War. Some experts have analysed her handwriting and signature and concluded that she might have been left handed.
Lefties are known to be artistic. There are many talented musicians and artists who are left handed. One of them is legendary Paul McCartney of the Beatles. He is a musician, composer and songwriter. When he was younger, he played either a left-handed guitar or a right-handed guitar upside down.
Members of royal families can also be left handed. Prince William and his father, Prince Charles, are left-handed royals!
The famous Leonardo da Vinci, who created amazing paintings such as The Last Supper, is a left-handed painter.
Another left-handed heartthrob is Tom Cruise. Born left handed, his kindergarten teacher managed to force him to write with his right hand. Even so, he still acts in numerous movies that require him to be left handed, such as Vanilla Sky.
