Oprah Winfrey

Oprah is one of the biggest names in television, and a billionaire, and guess what - she's also a lefty! She has faced many adversities in her life, but now she's signing on autographs and owns her network!

Prince William

Royal lefty Prince William is in line for the throne of England, and apart from being left-handed, has set himself apart from other royals by excelling in charitable work and joining the air force.

Kate Hudson

Actress Kate Hudson (you may know her from Season 4 of Glee, or the movies How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Almost Famous) is left-handed, just like her famous mom Goldie Hawn.

Barack Obama

Being left-handed used to be something that could hold people back (we're talking like, the Middle Ages), but not anymore! U.S. President Barack Obama, otherwise known as the leader of the free world, is a lefty.

Marilyn Monroe

Little known to most of her fans, iconic movie actress Marilyn Monroe was also left-handed. Marilyn defined what it was to be a movie star and inspires all kinds of people even today.

Michaelangelo

One of the greatest artists in history and famous for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in The Vatican, Michaelangelo knew a thing or two about hands (left ones that is.) The fingers touching is one of the most famous part of any work of art ever made (up there with The Mona Lisa's unforgettable smile.)

Oml, I remember when I first saw the song title of that on YouTube. XD I couldn't stop laughing for like an hour. That is such a weird song title. It sounds a bit naïve to me, honestly. FroyoYOLO...
