David Bowie

The late singer David Bowie was another lefty. With his extensive creative output, it makes you wonder if there’s any truth to the notion that left-handed people are more creative.

Keanu Reeves

While he may have used both hands to hold guns in The Matrix, Keanu Reeves is another star who uses his left hand. Though he uses his left most of the time, he also plays bass right-handed, according to The Wrap. So he’s actually ambidextrous.

Lisa Kudrow

While only 10 percent of the population is left-handed, 16 percent of the Friends main cast is. That comes from star Lisa Kudrow, who is a lefty!

Sarah Jessica Parker

While Carrie Bradshaw didn’t need to write her column with her left-hand, Sarah Jessica Parker is known to be left-handed! If Carrie wrote long-hand, Sarah would’ve probably done it with her left hand.

Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen could probably come up with a great raunchy joke about being a lefty! Maybe he’ll make a reference to it in a future comedy.

Sylvester Stallone

Rocky Balboa’s left hook is probably a little more powerful than his right one. Sylvester Stallone is another southpaw Academy Award nominee.

Tina Fey

Former Saturday Night Live star and writer Tina Fey could definitely find something funny to say about being left-handed! The Mean Girls writer and actress has never shied away from self-deprecating humor.

Tom Cruise

Sort of like Robert De Niro, Tom Cruise takes his acting into account when deciding which hand to use onscreen. The actor is left-handed, but he has also played right-handed characters in some movies.
