Like many young left-handed people, Jessica Alba was stigmatized and made to feel inadequate. She says she was forced to use her right hand when she was young. This had a great impact on her life, stating “From a very early age, I remember thinking that adults were always acting like a**holes. I couldn't understand why I had to respect them. My pre-school teacher forced me to write right-handed when I was left-handed. I didn't get why I had to change. Nobody could give me a reason. I have had a big problem with authority ever since.” Alba’s story is one of grit and left-handed determination.

Scarlett Johannsson is one of the youngest left-handed actresses in Hollywood. The fact that Scarlett has a twin brother might help explain why she's southpaw. Research has shown that left-handedness, in comparison to the general population, appears to occur more frequently in both identical and fraternal twins. Her twin brother Hunter used to work for another famous leftie, the current President of the United States.
3. Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie is one of the most photographed women in the world. This makes the high profile actress a poster child for all left-handed women. Angelina is specifically a pioneer for left-handed actresses. While performing in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider she had special guns made so that she could easily reload them. She also designed a special floral tattoo for her left hand in the film Wanted.

Model/actress Milla Jovovich has appeared on the cover of more than 100 magazines. She found movie stardom in The Fifth Element and the Resident Evil films. Milla’s left-handedness makes her a rarity among models. This is something she shares and talks often about with fellow model Kathy Ireland (who narrowly missed making this list). On occasion, Milla likes to flirt with her right side, her website states that she “plays guitar and shoots right-handed.” Oh the betrayal!

Michelle Monaghan has a thing for sticking with her own. The young actress has made a career appearing opposite left-handed male actors. She got her break in Mission Impossible 3 with leftie Tom Cruise. She appeared in Constantine in an uncredited role alongside southpaw Keanu Reeves. Recently she played the adorable Miranda in The Heartbreak Kid with left-handed funny man Ben Stiller. Michelle also teamed up with Angelina Jolie in Mr. and Mrs. Smith. With Michelle, you really have to squeeze her left hand to get her to consider working with a rightie.
