Jaime Pressly is convinced she is a distant cousin of Elvis Presley’s thanks to a family legend passed down by her grandfather. The My Name Is Earl star can’t prove a link, but she was won over when she compared pictures of her relatives and the King.

She explains, “When I was a little kid there was a lot of teasing going on about me being related to Elvis. 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’s adopted. Did she keep her birth name? I guess maybe she has a relationship her birth family.
