The idea of the six degrees is that everyone on the planet is only separated from everyone else by six steps or less.
For example I can prove that I am less than 6 steps away from George Clooney. Oh yes I can!
Step 1: a very good friend of mine used to work in the film industry
Step 2: she once worked on a film starring Ben Affleck and was responsible for looking after him
Step 3: at the time he was dating Gwyneth Paltrow
Step 4: Gwyneth has also been in a relationship with Brad Pitt
Step 5: Brad Pitt has starred in several films with his good friend, George Clooney!
So near but so far!
Not only that, but how about my
I have met Gary Barlow's mum.....Gary Barlow is now a judge on X-factor.....his colleague on the show is Kelly Rowland a former member of Destiny's Child......Beyoncè was also in Destiny's Child.....and she sang at President Obama's inauguration party. Voila!
I could go on to list my links to the Pope, Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Lopez but I'm far too modest, and anyway I never talk about close friends *ahem*
So...who are you connected to? Go on, I'm dying to hear about it.
