Celebrities You Never Knew Are Left Handed (Photo)

Plenty of celebs and pop stars walk the left-hand path. That is, they use their left hand, which is by far the less dominant extremity among humans, to write, to sign autographs, to wave and to hold microphones.

In addition to being right-brained, lefties are a rare breed, because of their smaller numbers. Left-handedness has also been stigmatized due to its association with the devil, since the fallen angel Lucifer sat at the left hand of the father. Left is also “sinistra” in Latin, which translates to “sinister.”

Their uncommonness also makes lefties special — just ask Ned Flanders of ‘The Simpsons,’ who is the owner and operator of the ‘Leftorium’ lefty specialty store in Springfield.
