It’s time to celebrate lefties! August 13 is officially Left Handers Day and it has us wondering — what celebs take part in the special day? We compiled a list, and you might be surprised at all the big names that are left-handed!
Approximately 10 percent of the world is left-handed, so it’s only fair that such a small portion of the population get a day to celebrate their uniqueness. Crazy enough, that small percentage actually includes quite the list of A-listers! From Jennifer Lawrence to Prince William, there’s plenty of celebs who will be commemorating their left-handedness. Check out the 15 we’re most excited about!
One of the more well-known celebrity lefties is Justin Bieber, particularly because he loves meeting fans and signing autographs, but also because he plays guitar left-handed. One lefty celeb that doesn’t play guitar left-handed, though, is Adam Levine (now that’s impressive!). And Justin and Adam aren’t alone in the left-handed musician world. They’re joined by Lady Gaga, Iggy Azalea, Eminem, and One Direction‘s Niall Horan — the only 1D lefty!
It’s not just the music industry that has some impressive lefties. Like we mentioned before, J-Law is left-handed, as are Pitch Perfect‘s leading lady Anna Kendrick, Angelina Jolie, and Mark Wahlberg. Mary-Kate Olsen is too, but ironically her twin, Ashley, is not. But there’s another Ashley in Hollywood who’s a lefty, and that’s Ashley Tisdale! Can you believe all of these HUGE names?
Speaking of huge names, we already told you Prince William is a lefty, but one more we haven’t acknowledged is one of the biggest — Barack Obama! Royalty and a president? We seriously can’t handle this list!
And last but not least, the biggest surprise of the day…Caitlyn Jenner! That’s right, the I Am Cait star is celebrating her left-handedness along with all of these other amazing celeb lefties!
Which left-handed celebrity do YOU love most, HollywoodLifers? Were you surprised to find out how many celebs are lefties? If you’re a lefty too, give yourself a shout-out in the comments below!
