she looks Arabic

I can believe she is French. She has coloring and facial features similar to Ali Landry, who resembles Shania Twain, and they are both mostly French.

You’re generous to put Audrey next to those two hotties. Btw Shania Twain has just a little more than 1/8 French-Canadian ancestry overall, while about Ali…I don’t think she is fully Caucasian.

Why don’t you think she is fully Caucasian? Her ancestry is very detailed on here and she is over 90% French. The most of other ancestry she has is Spanish.

I didn’t know Shania was only 1/8 French-Canadian. Ali and Shania still look similar.

Also, I think Audrey is pretty.

Ali has at least 1/256 Mi’kmaq Native Canadian ancestry, she isn’t technically fully Caucasian. She looks similar to Shanya, but more exotic-looking. Her ancestors were very inbred (like many Cajuns/Acadians), maybe that could be a reason.

1/256 is very minimal. I doubt it affects her appearance and I’m not sure what you mean by “fully Caucasian.” Most people of European descent are technically not “fully Caucasian” if you count hundreds to thousands of ancestors and most do not test 100% European. Jimmy Kimmel, Ben Affleck, etc. for example.

I said in my original post that Ali and Shania are mostly French. Shania, I learned, is not mostly French. I thought she was. Since she has French-Canadian ancestry, she likely has distant Native Canadian ancestry, too, like Ali, but Ali is mostly French and she has features that are similar to both Shania and Audrey.

Yes, I know Ali’s ancestry is very inbred since Cajuns did a lot of inbreeding. However, Jared Leto is also part Cajun and has many of the same ancestors as she does, including the Native Canadian ones. He’s not exotic-looking. Then again, his father is of British descent, while both of Ali’s parents are Cajun.

France’s old name was Gaul because it’s people were Gauls, who were Celts & as you know, some of them are redheads & blondes, but a significant amount of them have dark features like Audrey. Also look at present day Celtic nations like Ireland and Wales, they’re plenty of people with dark features

Like quite a significant amount of French people, some are descents of Iranians (Persians). She looks like she could be from there.

andrew July 26, 2016 at 4:43 pm

I doubt that. She was born to French parents in a very small town, also there are a few Iranians in France.

neiltennant October 15, 2017 at 4:35 am

I totally agree

she could easily pass for IRANIAN

She looks very French.

Some of them are blondish and fair, others are dark and Mediterranean – After all, southeast of France is a hot place and it’s adjacent to the Mediterranean sea.
