What do these folks have in common?


Dick Van Dyke

Tina Fey

Will Ferrell

Shirley Jones

Robert Redford

Kate Hudson

Let's add Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Robert De Niro, and Barack Obama to this list.


The stars of "The Goodbye Girl", Richard Dreyfuss, Marsha Mason, and Quinn Cummings, all had this in common.


Obviously, it has nothing to do with careers or relatives.

Hint --  Add these names to the list:   Goldie Hawn, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Bruce Willis, Emma Thompson, Jerry Seinfeld and Hugh Jackman.



(Again, it's not film/career-related.  It also doesn't involve any of their relatives.)
