These are all of the Canadian celebrities you didn't know were left-handed
Happy International Left-Handers Day, Canada! You might be surprised to learn that lefties make up only about 10 per cent of the global population, but there are a few recognizable Canadians contributing to that number.
Here are some Canadian celebrities that are part of the southpaw club.
The Quebec-born singer is actually a lefthander; she holds her microphone in her left hand when she performs on stage.
Happy #LeftHandersDay to left-handed legend Céline Dion! #DYK Dion's family is musical? Her mother was a violinist, her father an accordionist and many of her 13 older siblings were in show business. https://t.co/EjzD7WXkcL— CanadianEncyclopedia (@CdnEncyclopedia) August 13, 2020

The Ontario-born director of the Hollywood hit Titanic is actually left-handed. In fact, Cameron drew the famous sketch of a naked Rose wearing the Heart of the Ocean diamond, and the clip had to be altered to match the right-handed Leonardo DiCaprio, per Digital Spy.

Canadian hockey players Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky are both technically right-handed off the ice, but both famous athletes are well-known for shooting left during games, making them honorary members of the southpaw club.
Keep proudly smudging those crosswords, lefties.
