Birth Name: William Bradley Pitt

Place of Birth: Shawnee, Oklahoma, U.S.

Date of Birth: December 18, 1963

Ethnicity: English, some Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, along with small amounts (to varying degrees) of German, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, Swedish, Dutch, and French

Brad Pitt is an American actor and producer. He was born in Shawnee, Oklahoma, the son of Jane Etta (Hillhouse) and William Alvin Pitt, and was raised in Springfield, Missouri. He was raised a Baptist, but no longer practices the religion. Brad is married to actress Angelina Jolie, with whom he has six children. His brother is businessperson and philanthropist Douglas Pitt. Brad was selected People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 1995, and again in 2000.

Brad’s family has lived in the United States for many generations. Most of Brad’s documented ancestors are English, some Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, along with small amounts (to varying degrees) of German, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, Swedish, Dutch, and French.

During an interview on Inside the Actors Studio (2012), Brad stated that his ancestry is:

…probably… Irish-Scots, Germans who settled in the area… Native American Indian… I know we have some Seminole, and some Cherokee Indian, in us.

No Cherokee or Seminole Native American ancestors have been documented in publicly available family trees of Brad Pitt. While he did not mention English ancestry, English comprises much of Brad’s lineage.

Brad is a third cousin, once removed, of actor Tyler Christopher. Brad’s paternal great-great-grandparents, George Washington Dorris and Nanny Rosalene/Rosaleen Smith, were also Tyler’s maternal great-great-great-grandparents.

Brad’s paternal grandfather was Alvin Monroe Pitt (the son of Oliver Brown/Bruce Pitt and Rosa Lee Dorris). Alvin was born in Oklahoma. Oliver was the son of Thomas Monroe Pitt and Mary Isabella/Belle Armor/Armer Ray. Rosa was the daughter of George Washington Dorris and Nanny Rosalene/Rosaleen Smith.

Brad’s paternal grandmother was Elizabeth Jean Brown (the daughter of Lester Benny Brown and Una Valerie Coker). Elizabeth was born in Oklahoma. Lester was the son of William Henry Brown and Minnie Martha Moore. Una was the daughter of Richard Ogle Coker and Laura Tryphena/Trephena Trotter.

Brad’s maternal grandfather was Hal Knox Hillhouse (the son of Emory/Emery A. Hillhouse and Etta Colemon/Colman/Coleman Williams). Hal was born in Missouri. Emory was the son of Elijah Boyd Hillhouse, Jr. and Malinda/Melinda Burrel/Burrell Morris. Etta was the daughter of Henry Thomas Williams and Ida Mae/May Isbell.

Brad’s maternal grandmother was Clara Maurine/Mae Bell (the daughter of Finis Alonzo/Alonza Bell and Lenora Jane Hammer). Clara was born in Missouri. Finis was the son of William Saterfield/Satterfield Bell and Sarah Elizabeth Neece. Lenora was the daughter of Felix Emery Hammer and Sarah Angeline Parker. Brad’s seven times great-grandfather, John Johannes Hammer, was born, c. 1683, in Palatimate, Germany.

Ignore the comments english peeps. Nothing to see here but insecure mediterraneans trolling the British. Hilariously enough they kiss up to northern europeans on other boards while being extra racist to latinos and arabs which is hilarious because they look closer to those latinos and arabs than they do northern europeans. I suppose that’s where some of the animosity comes from. Not being considered “true white”.

caligurl2 July 10, 2016 at 9:37 pm

So people who criticise the British are automatically mediterraneans? sounds like you’re just making assumption which brings up the question why jump to mediterraneans so quickly? animosity towards them? I do know that British girls have a thing for southern men. They always choose either Spain or Italy as the countries with the hottest men on every poll so maybe that’s why you dislike them? I notice that ethnic groups tend to dislike other ethnic groups a lot when their women are after them.

Tyler Durden February 10, 2016 at 10:55 am

LOL funny that everyone seems to hate the British but in the end everyone wants to look like them. I don’t understand why people especially Americans try so hard to dissolve the influence of the British on North America. Do you think it makes Americans ugly or something? because I gotta tell you, Australians are far more British than Americans and Australians are also better looking than Americans on average so there!

gel February 10, 2016 at 11:23 am

Thats because they’re Irish!

Tyler Durden February 10, 2016 at 12:07 pm

No, English are the majority by far. More Australians report English ancestry than anything else and most of the people who identify as “Australian” are English as well.

gel February 10, 2016 at 12:15 pm

They’re in denial.

Tyler Durden February 10, 2016 at 12:21 pm

Nah I think your super anti-english sentiment is just clouding your judgement. You can’t go to any country in the anglosphere without seeing lots of English/British cultural and phenotypical influence. Just get over it lol. The British were awesome just accept it and move on.

caligurl2 April 17, 2016 at 8:51 am

And Gel does have a point MANY Australians are mixed or not English. Especially the attractive entertainers. Just a few of the well known ones.

Hugh Jackman – Part Greek
David Zaharakis – Greek
Ryan Kwanten – Croatian
Yvonne Stahovski – Polish
Andy Whitfield – Welsh
Russle Crow – A mutt with Irish and Welsh

Even the Hemsworth brothers have German and Dutch ancestry. Australians are just like Americans today. No anglosphere nations are pure English anymore. Australia might have more English than America or Canada but they’re still mixed too. I don’t see why the English are put on a pedestal above everyone else. Often times the full English celebrities either look average or ugly with next to no sex appeal. The mixed ones are often the best look as we can see here with Brad Pitt.

caligurl2 April 17, 2016 at 8:34 am

Since when? The general consensus everywhere around the world is that the British are ugly. British themselves often don’t want to be British and lie about being something more exotic. Most of Britain’s celebs aren’t even all English. These days the British are as mixed up as Americans are.

There’s swedes, italians, irish, spanish, germans etc all over British entertainment. You’re more likely to see a British actor with multiple ancestries today than full English. No one wants to look British and that very claim, idealogy and arrogance is exactly why the Brits catch such a hard time from everyone.

visokozen April 27, 2016 at 10:39 am

Man that stupid argument is still going strong.I personally think brad pitt is ugly.

Greyface April 27, 2016 at 11:47 am

the average person of ANY ancestry is ugly, but the top tier model class English people are objectively the best looking.

gel April 27, 2016 at 12:04 pm

Quite a claim – who are these uber great-looking people?

Greyface April 27, 2016 at 3:34 pm

I already listed plenty for you on emily blunt’s page yesterday.

Well good for you. I like scandinavians.

Arunkate3 January 9, 2016 at 6:15 pm

I was 2007 in Uk ( England , Wales, Ireland , Scottland )
i spent 3 Month there so i know about the British People . A lot of British Mens are more handsome than their women , british girls are not so attraktive .
Germany has more beautiful Girls / Women than Guys .

Arunkate3 January 9, 2016 at 6:10 pm

Hollywood Actors who looks like typical Germans are :
L Dicaprio , Kevin Kostner , Michael Fassbender , Kirsten Dunst

Brad Pitt looks so different , his facial features are so different it is not very common in Germany .

Im not gay but of course he is a handsome man , he is a work of art .

gel January 10, 2016 at 3:35 am

Brad Pitt reminds me of Dwight Eisenhower – so I guess its a German look:

Im Caucasian with remote Indian ancetrsy ( great great Grandmother) living in Germany. Hey you fools nobody here in Germany looks like Brad Pitt because he has more British ancestry than others.
Please look at his Facial features , for me he looks more British than other ethnicity. Bye

caligurl2 December 31, 2015 at 8:33 am

LOL what’s with British people and this constant flip flopping with race?

When someone says you’re not Germanic enough, suddenly you all become “just like Germans” descendents of Thor and Scandinavians. When someone says a guy/girl looks more Germanic than the average Brit suddenly “no germans look like us” we look celt. You’re a homogeneous people until someone mentions you’re inbred or ugly then you become “the most diverse country in the world”. LOLbrits make up your goddamn minds.

ashash January 1, 2016 at 12:58 am

caligurl2, please get a life. Yes, a lot of actors have British ancestry, as they do German, Jewish, and Italian. It’s not a big deal. Your obsession with Brits is beyond creepy.

caligurl2 January 26, 2016 at 7:11 am

No what’s truly creepy is this sites obsession with British people. Desperation to portray actors as English (even going so far as to put English first and point out how insignificant their other ancestry is) when these actors themselves DON’T even consider themselves English. I was looking at the Chad M Murray page how he said himself he was Polish and Irish. Then you had someone already trying to tell him what he is despite him already identifying with what he was. Lets not forget the constant usage of “Anglo American” as a placeholder when this site is not sure of the person’s ancestry. It seems some people have a legit anglospheric view of the world. Brits don’t have a monopoly on fair skin, blue eyes and fair hair. Infact they’re the darkest of all northern europeans but some how when someone has these features automatically they’re anglo?

caligurl2 January 26, 2016 at 10:31 am

To simplify my point; This is not the 1600s anymore. Anglophiles pretending it is need to wake up (you’re one of the culprits). We are not British or mostly British, and even the people with English ancestry rarely identify with being English. So get out with this isolationist Anglo supremacy bs here pretending the US is still some Anglo saxon holy grail undermining the influence of everyone else. Anglophiles here do the same thing with statistics, trying desperately to make the population of other groups seem more insignificant to that of English despite all so called English Americans being just as mixed as any German American or what have you.

follers January 26, 2016 at 4:39 pm

Chad Michael Murray without question has English ancestry (and German, which he also didn’t mention). There’s no reason for this web site to exist if it’s just going to list what people have said about their own ancestry. We would still have half of A-list Hollywood actors listed as Cherokee Native Americans.

crunty February 1, 2016 at 6:48 am

If you travel to the shires, like norfolk, suffolk, essex, kent — in other words, outside of London, and in the direction of the north sea, you will find a lot of blondes there, especially amongst the kids. Combined, norfolk and suffolk are called east anglia, seeing as you sound so obsessed with “anglos”.

gel December 31, 2015 at 11:40 am

Don’t know any British who look like that.

What makes you say that? – You must have an example.

ses101 January 4, 2018 at 7:31 pm

I saw somebody in Scotland that looked like Brad Pitt. You have to live in a country to truly know what people like there. The “all Brits are ugly” anti-British crap on this site is ridiculous.

caligurl2 April 17, 2016 at 8:37 am

I’ve been to East England, infact there are loads of websites dedicated to this anthropology stuff that also has threads filled with East English people. They are dark haired on average and not Blonde. They’re not very tall either. It’s very peculiar that the British are so desperate to look Germanic because British culture is the exact opposite in the glorification of Rome and southern cultures.

ses101 January 4, 2018 at 7:22 pm

I have’t got a clue what you are talking about Caligurl2, but for some reason you seem to hate Britain with your negative generalizations of us.

Fatmonkey November 25, 2015 at 9:45 am

If by “remote Dutch and French” you mean the ancestry via the medieval nobility and royalty from British Isles, then pretty much each and every person of English descent can claim partial French and Dutch descent as well. The traditional, Anglo-Saxon English people are practically all part-French (through, for example, their “Edward III” lineage). I’m not sure if the ancestry which only becomes visible after at least 7 centuries of a family tree is in need of being ascertained.

follers November 26, 2015 at 12:17 am

No, that’s not what it’s referring to.

gaabz October 19, 2015 at 9:22 pm

Actors here in the US of A, even when they are not English/British by blood/ancestors they are by birth. They are completely dominating Hollywood, have been since back the in the day and now at present we are importing them in bulk. They do an awesome job though so yeah keep ‘me coming.

caligurl2 November 30, 2015 at 7:08 am

Britain is becoming one of the most diverse countries in Europe. Not all of these people are even ethnically Brit. More and more British celebrities and actors are having mixed ancestries these days. Andrew Garfield is Jewish, Stephan James is half Israeli, Jacey Elthalion half French, Hayden is half Jamaican and Cuban. Vince Azzopardi Italian, especially if these people are coming from London usually they’re not all British. Which probably explains why they look very much better than the British population. Having been to the UK London is the best looking part of Britain up north with the more homogeneous Brits has the worst aesthetics in UK. Secondly they aren’t “dominating” hollywood, maybe you meant just superhero roles? More American actors are of diverse ancestries.

Two leads in Vampire Diaries – Ian mixed ancestry, Paul is Polish. Two Leads in Supernatural ….Jared is Polish German and Jensen is mixed British. Lead in One Tree Hill Chad is Polish and Irish. The lead in the tv show Grimm is half Italian. All the leads in the show The 100 have varying ancestries. I don’t understand this zenophobic mentality that America is still “all british” it’s disrespectful and undermines the legacy of everyone else. The anglo purist should really get out of here with that tripe.

caligurl2 November 30, 2015 at 7:17 am

Greg Sulkin Jewish
Rhona Mitra
Douglas Booth (in my opinion Britain’s most aesthetic export) half Spanish and Dutch
Not even Kate Bekinsale is 100%.
Almost all the current top models in UK are of mixed ancestries, and one of the few 100% Brits looks completely non-british (David Gandy)

gaabz December 23, 2015 at 7:56 pm

David Gandy looks totally british to me! Do you think Tom Hardy or Christian Bale don’t look British either? Not every one in Britain is Blonde or fair haired, there are a lot of dark type Brits just like in Germany or the rest of Europe come to think of it.
I think your interpretation of the typical British look is very skewed.

Tux July 1, 2015 at 3:27 pm

Also all you people arguing over Brad’s ancestry really need to be quiet because none of you know what he truly is. Unless you people have a DNA test of Brad you don’t know squat except what his census records say or what he himself said which could also be a fabrication of the truth. Some of you forget that many mixed Americans often only identify with a specific few of their ancestries just take the past census and how many mixed white americans were circling in multiple european answers. Surnames also aren’t always indicative of ancestry especially in the USA of all places.

caligurl2 July 12, 2015 at 9:51 pm

True…..he looks like a regular old American to me though. The europeans here keep trying to claim American actors as their own for some reason. He doesn’t look German or British or w/e he looks typical American. Even our British descendant actors look different from regular ol English or Scottish people because ours tend to be multiple ancestries. Not only that diets here in the states are different which also has effect on how our people look.

and just lol at some of the people saying he looks scandinavina lmao this is what most scandinavian people look like

norwegians

TOTALLY BRAD PITTS! lol

Alice July 13, 2015 at 4:33 am

No one trying to claim him. He is of course an American of mixed European ancestry but my beef is with people trying to downplay his British Isles ancestry. The majority of his ancestry is from there and what I find silly is the arguments about what he looks like. What he looks like is subjective and people have very stereotypical opinions. Believe it or not there are many different looks in all populations.

Tyler Durden September 7, 2015 at 9:15 am

This ^ I don’t understand it, people will say British people are so ugly, yet there’s a ridiculous amount of users on here who continue trying to claim British descended people some even making up ancestries like they did with Chad Michael Murray being part Japanese. What is it to boost their own confidence? is there not another people they can look up to in the media of their ancestry that they have to take British ones? ha.

hesh123 September 7, 2015 at 1:16 pm

Anglos are the most attractive, FACT.

Tyler Durden September 23, 2015 at 10:51 am

Well there’s not much difference between them remember Anglos are originally from Northern Germany and Demark atleast the groups who mixed to form Anglo saxons were from these places. So theoretically Anglos look like Germans/Danes. I don’t get the arguing between the English and Germans. To be fair Americans are just as much German as they are English. Most American celebrities have both German and English ancestries so its fair to say Americans look like both.

caligurl2 November 30, 2015 at 7:32 am

Anyone can be the most attractive when you only use models and actors as examples BUT lets see an average Brit stack up to the average people in other European countries. Let’s see how the average Brit compares to these average Italians.

http://italianselfies.tumblr.com/

Spoiler alert, average Brits don’t come even remotely close haha.

Tux July 1, 2015 at 3:01 pm

I can see german but I can’t see british.

xoxo August 6, 2015 at 4:49 am

Because they look soooo different right??? *rolls eyes at the stupidity and ignorance*

visokozen September 20, 2015 at 11:21 am

They do look different and the ones who are attractive have German ancestry. English have a inferiority complex and they try to claim everybody who’s beautiful. English are ugly, FACT.

gel September 20, 2015 at 11:55 am

Lol – they have to ship in the Irish. Fact!

Tyler Durden September 29, 2015 at 7:18 am

@visokozen sorry but it seems like the total opposite to me. EVERYONE seems to try and claim British actors while trying to undermine their British ancestry. People on the David Gandy page are trying to claim him Italian juat as much as Germans try to claim any actor with fair features as looking German. It doesn’t seem to me that its Brits with the inferiority complex moreso everyone else since people are honestly claiming a guy looks good looking solely because of some miniscule German ancestry he has in comparison to his much bigger British component. Are you trying to say German people can’t be ugly? because i’ve been to Berlin twice now and Germans are far from all beautiful FAR FROM.

visokozen September 29, 2015 at 8:08 am

Man saying things like “everyone seems to try and claim British actors while trying to undermine their British ancestry” its just stupid and wrong. Can you give me some examples i personally can think of many Scandinavian looking actors that british claim from themself but not the other way. its because of the roman empire. I remember an intrview with Brad Pitt with James Lipton where he said that he’s descendants where Goths and Irish. And Germans in Berlin can look ugly because they don’t care about their appearance as much.

Tyler Durden September 29, 2015 at 1:45 pm

Examples? have you been ignoring the comments in this section? It’s right here people claiming a guy who is more British in ancestry can’t look British LOL. There aren’t that many well known Scandinavian actors to begin with and i’ve never seen anyone try to claim Alexander Skarsgard looks British. British people only claim people with ACTUAL BRITISH ancestry as British. Its like you’re getting mad at people for saying someone looks British who actually has British ancestry and a large chunk of it. I’m not even British but I can see that the inferiority complex is not coming from them. Only on the actors of British descents page do you see people trolling the British about being ugly or saying people of British ancestry don’t look British. I There seems to be way more nordic and germaphiles with nazi fetishes trying to claim every blonde person of european ancestry is German some how LOL

visokozen September 29, 2015 at 9:13 pm

I don’t know why would you make me repeat myself. I told you Brad’s answer to this question i can’t understand why are you ignoring it. And i’m not talking about Skarsgard or anyone else with an obvious Scandinavian name I’m talking about actors with similar lineage and english surnames. I can’t think of any Englishman who looks like Brad Pitt can you? He doesn’t look like David Cameron does he :).

Tyler Durden October 19, 2015 at 8:50 am

Charlie Hunnam looks exactly like Brad Pitt and is English, there you go that was easy. The British don’t have one look seeing as you named Cameron it’s seems you’re one of those germanic supremacist who try to protray the British as mediterraneans LOL. Your envy and insecurities toward the British couldn’t be anymore clear. The British should be flattered that so many people on the web always call them ugly yet everytime someone good looking of British descent comes along you all want to claim them as looking like you , its the ultimate irony.

Tyler Durden October 19, 2015 at 8:54 am

He does not look German by the way. Germans are known throughout as having “rougher” features than other Europeans, squarer jaws. Compare the WW2 German photos to the British WW2 photos, the difference is the British had soft, more harmonious features while the Germans (even the girls) looked robust and harsh in the face. Brad definately looks British. The British are the softest featured northerners in comparison to either Scandinavians, Dutch or Germans and even Russians.

visokozen October 19, 2015 at 9:35 am

im not germanic supremacist and for the second time I’m not jelaous of the british. How retarded is that we say that all the time and you insist the oposit. I wrote that the English are mixing with germanic tribes scandinavians, irish scottish, italians, indians, pakistanis and others so finding a blond english guy that looks like Brad Pitt is as easy as finding his look alike in any other european country. And how did you come to the conclusion that David Cameron looks Mediterranean?And that we’re on some kind of conspiracy to portraye the English as an ugly lot because we’re so f*** jealous.:) Don’t turn this into a fight. All of us want the truth. Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, John Major, Callaghan and of course Winston Churchill are some great examples of the soft and harmonies facial features of the Englishman.

Tyler Durden September 23, 2015 at 10:47 am

Yeah the difference between Germans and English people is not so strong. Remember the English are in part German & Danish. Sure Brad Pitts might be more common in Germany than England specifically because Germany is more Germanic while English absorbed some celts but that doesn’t mean they can’t look English. The English people either look German or celtic.

gel September 23, 2015 at 11:30 am

I don’t think they look German – have you any examples of these German-looking English?

andrew September 24, 2015 at 8:40 am

Sting looks German

visokozen September 25, 2015 at 12:55 pm

Sting doesnt look German. Bryan Cranston and Bruce Willis look German.

visokozen September 24, 2015 at 12:49 am

They are Germans and they moved to america probably because they didn’t wanted to be called english by people.

Tyler Durden September 29, 2015 at 7:20 am

German ancestry is nowhere near as strong in America as the British component. That is a fact.

gel September 25, 2015 at 2:35 am

The English are only 20% Anglo-Saxon!

gel September 25, 2015 at 2:36 am

Sting? – Funny, he’s of Irish descent!

A user September 25, 2015 at 10:45 am

If by “of irish descent” you mean he’s only 1/8th irish then sure.

Tyler Durden September 29, 2015 at 7:22 am

The English are still a majority Germanic people hence they overlap mostly with Germany & Scandinavian countries.

gel October 19, 2015 at 11:49 am

I agree! Now, if you want British, how about the Ray Winstone (English actually)?:

ashash April 10, 2015 at 10:05 pm

It’s insane how many people are arguing that Brad Pitt & Paul Walker do not look like the majority of their ancestry.

falisio June 29, 2015 at 11:43 am

What’s even more insane are the people trying to make people believe average English person looks like Brad Pitt xD

Let me tell you i’ve spent quite a bit of time in Northern England and Scotland. If there were Brad Pitts around honey I missed them because most people in these areas looked very unkempt and not so great looking. It was like a total different experience from when I was in France and Italy I couldn’t stop seeing attractive men left and right.

To argue that Brad Pitt looks like something he’s not is stupid just as saying he looks like an average English person is stupid. The British didn’t earn their reputation for looking the way they do because people secretely hate them. They earned it because people who have actually been to the nation know what they look like on average well enough to know that the actors they have starring in American roles are the cream of the crop because you won’t find these actors walking down the street in England.

It’s also stupid using Americans who are mixed as examples of English people. It does not represent what English people look like regardless of their ancestry. Americans eat differently, we engage in different activities and most of the immigrants here in the states came from only a specific few regions of the countries they came from. Many English Americans came from East Anglia so they would not look like someone from say the northern area of England just like most Italian Americans do not look like Italians because most of them in America are Sicilians.

Alice June 29, 2015 at 8:07 pm

You’re making a straw man argument. People were saying that Brad Pitt doesn’t look like he could be from what the majority of his ancestry is. Whether everyone looks like Brad Pitt is irrelevant. Some of the discussions on here are ridiculous. His majority ancestry is from British Isles. Most people in any population don’t all look like actors or models. In fact I’m sure a lot of Brad’s family don’t look like him but that doesn’t change his ancestry.

falisio June 30, 2015 at 6:47 am

I don’t see any issue in people here saying Brad Pitt can pass as German or whatever. Are you going to sit here and pretend Britain is homogeneous? What are the English but a mix of German, French and Celts or have you forgotten the English weren’t always in the isles.

New study says 45% of the English genome is french and 25% German and then there’s another 1 million Brits who have been found to have traces of DNA tracing back to Italy (no doubt from Romans). The British aren’t pure anything. They are mostly western europeans from continental Europe who then mixed with celts. So there is no crime in saying someone English looks German or French because the fact of the matter is a huge chunk of their DNA IS French and German.

You like using strawmen arguments don’t you falisio? You are now saying that British are mixed and before you were saying that Brad Pitt doesn’t look British? (See what I’m saying?)

Just for more clarification for anyone interested the Scotland & Northern Ireland cluster is relating more to West Scotland (Highlanders) and pre-Plantation Northern Irish (e.g. the Catholic Northern Irish) and the South Scotland/Northern Ireland cluster is related to the Scots and what Americans would call the Scots-Irish e.g. the Protestant Northern Irish.

falisio July 1, 2015 at 7:49 am

I’m not saying the British are mixed genetic data is saying they’re mixed and you’re freaking out over it because you like many of the Anglo saxon purist want to believe Britain is some homogeneous land of pure Anglo Saxons LMAO.

I can tell you’re insecure because you seem far too invested in this. Who cares if someone says a Brit looks closer to someone French or German than they do British. Once again as in the link I just posted for you Britain is not homogeneous. Most Brits do not look like Anglo Saxons so you’d have to be an idiot to disagree that an Anglo saxon Briton would look closer to Scandinavians and Germans because HEY most Brits do not look this way. David Gandy is full blooded British and I would mistake him for an Italian at first glance just as I would with Orlando Bloom. Britain is filled with people of the atlantid phenotype and a lot look closer to the French and central Europeans than they do Germanics.

The Anglo saxon purist are hilarious in their attempts to northern europeanize the French in order to claim being 100% The Irony is while you keyboard warriors over the internet argue about how pale and germanic you are real “anglo saxons” are busy tanning themselves to look darker.

Blackbuddafly July 1, 2015 at 7:56 am

falisio droppin that truth. i don’t find the british attractive either. I live in a heavily white dominated area by people of mostly english irish and scottish descent. they definately don’t look like no brad pitts and look significantly worse than other whites. honestly i don’t see what all the rage is about from people on stormfront. pink skin is pretty gross untanned. and pink genitals look like a skinned rodent no offense to white ppl xD

Alice July 1, 2015 at 9:50 am

No offense to white people but you go out of your way to offend and why bring Stormfront into a discussion on Brad Pitt’s ancestry? As I’ve said in my previous post beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. I’m sure you’ve thought someone beautiful and another person would shrug their shoulder. I really think that people labelling whole nationalities as unattractive are showing a bias and not showing a very “attractive” trait. I’m not in the least racist and very much dislike that sort of thing.

A user July 1, 2015 at 8:13 am

Alice wasn’t even denying that the english are mixed so what are you talking about?

“I can tell you’re insecure because you seem far too invested in this.”

Unlike you who said the brits you met looked unkempt and not good looking.

falisio July 1, 2015 at 8:21 am

What does that have to do with insecurity? It’s an observation one that has been observed by many different people of various origins. Noone is out to get the British as Brits would have people believe. This is a sentiment shared by everyone ranging from Americans, Scandinavians, Germans, Finns, Spanish, Brazilians ecetera.

If everyone is saying the same thing it’s not a coincidence. Entertainers are usually always attractive however one thing i’ve noticed about the British that distinquishes them from other groups is that whenever people are posting attractive examples of their ethnicity it’s always the British who post mostly models while everyone else post non famous citizens. THAT says a lot.

falisio July 1, 2015 at 8:36 am

By the way I never argued that Brad Pitt didn’t look like his ancestry if you saw my original post I actually stated it’s stupid to argue over someone looking like something they’re not. I only said I don’t see the big deal in people saying he looks German or French MANY British people do.

The rest of my comments were direced at the Fabo guys who claims Americans and others are out to get the British which is utter nonsense. I hear the British being ugly from a lot of people of diverse origins. It’s ridiculous to think all these people have some vendetta against the British.

Alice July 1, 2015 at 9:38 am

I’m not insecure or freaking out at all. I don’t think anyone reading my posts would make that claim. You keep arguing about things I’ve never said. That’s why I say you use straw man arguments. The point I’m making is that whether people say Brad Pitt looks German or Chinese it is neither here nor there because he is majority British Isles ancestry. I’ve never even mentioned anything about Anglo-Saxons and I don’t even know what that has to do with the subject at all.

Alice July 1, 2015 at 9:44 am

Also trying to back up your subjective opinion that Brits are ugly by saying all these other people say it does not make it fact. Someone saying another ethnicity looks ugly smacks more of insecurity to me. There are beautiful and ugly people in all populations. I don’t think any population would want to put themselves up on a pedestal. Beauty is subjective just like ugliness.

Alice July 1, 2015 at 10:35 am

Atlantid phenotype. Yes I think I know who you are.

falisio July 1, 2015 at 2:52 pm

Except British being ugly is not some minority opinion. It’s pretty much accepted by everyone that the British are the least attractive European group. Almost noone considers the British attractive. Even British people admit it. The British do poorly in any global poll of attractiveness. You’re an Australian and have never been to Britain i’ve lived in London and it was by far the most aesthetic part of the country and you know what? most of the attractive people weren’t even native Britons. The quality of aesthetics decreases the further north you go.

Most people who visit England agree that the stereotype is more than true. As true as Slavic men not looking as good as slavic women. British being subpar next to other Europeans is a common accepted fact. I’ve seen the low class of most countries and even their low class are more aesthetic than Brit upper class. Brits have poor eating habits, poor diets and they’re reminiscent of American rednecks from the south except uglier.

Tux July 1, 2015 at 3:04 pm

There was a lot of inbreeding in Britain in the medieval period and such. As they say tiny island tiny genepool I think inbreeding plays a part in British looks because American people who have British ancestry tend to look waaaaaaaaaaaaaay different and miles better than British people from Britain. Then again most Americans are a lot of ancestries so maybe Americans are just sexier because they’re more mixed.

joeytheking July 4, 2015 at 12:52 pm

@falisio I don’t think education has taught you that German and French are also nationalities. There is no such thing as German or French blood if you’re gonna do the same with English DNA. French DNA is mostly made up of Alpine Celtic Stock. German DNA is around equally Celtic as it is Germanic, with smaller amount of Slav, etc. Germanic also doesn’t mean German. If you’re going to go based off where the Anglo-Saxons came from. Well… I should advise you that Germanics sprung from Scandinavia. So basically all Germanics are Scandinavian?…. Hence the bias you put on English people but not on any others. There is no doubt that the English are pure anything, but neither are Germans, French, Irish, the Dutch, and so the list continues.

Alice July 1, 2015 at 7:05 pm

Of course I’ve been to Britain and quite a few times. I’m not going to have a discussion about someone’s prejudices. You’re just going on anecdotal comments and the discussion is irrelevant to Brad Pitt’s ancestry.

Capricious April 1, 2015 at 6:38 pm

He looks 100% Anglo to me.

And this is coming from an Australian. Most of our men (who are an English bunch) look like they’re related to him.

He can pass as Slavic too.

Tux July 1, 2015 at 3:05 pm

I can’t see slavic but he definately looks german or dutch possibly even austrian.

Tux July 1, 2015 at 3:10 pm

also a real 100% anglo person would look german. anglo saxons aren’t native britons they were scandinavians and germans.

joeytheking July 4, 2015 at 12:59 pm

Anglo-Saxons were a Germanic tribe that only existed on the island of Great Britain, so technically they were native Britons in that sense. If you’re going by where their ancestors came from. The locations lye in present day Denmark, Northern Germany and the Netherlands. (So I have no idea where you got Scandinavians from, as well as counting them as Germans). If you go back even further from these locations, their ancestors came from somewhere else too. So really you’re just playing a game where no one wins, here.

lawsoniii December 6, 2014 at 8:23 pm

@Fabo
I do not agree with you re:Americans dislike the Brits. Many Americans, particularly those whose ancestors came here 300+ years ago, have British bloodlines. Dislike yourself, your family and ancestors, I think not.The majority of Americans are “mutts”. The royals, in Britain, have some German bloodlines due to arranged marriages in the past. Hundreds of years ago the royalty of England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy etc. married royalty from aforementioned countries for strategic purposes. My sole point is many, many Americans do not favor the British over the Germans or visa versa.

Fabo November 17, 2014 at 10:41 am

I don’t understand the anti sentiment Americans have against the British. The irony is that for some reason there’s a love affair with Germans. The historical enemy to the US. I don’t get it, maybe the anti sentiments comes from ethnic minorities and non british whites in the US who somehow feel the need to voice their insecurities about the British. Point, you can’t discredit the huge impact the British and Irish had on America or any of the colonies for the matter. Without disrespecting atleast more than half of the American white population.

Some facts for you

1 In 1980 more than half of the so called 50 million Germans checked themselves as having multiple ancestries. Given that most of the Germans are in British populated areas its safe to assume the large chunk of those Germans also had British input. I think about only around 16 million Germans in 1980 checked “Full german ancestry”.

2 Go to any of these anthropology boards, look at the average Irish and British people the Brits post [non chavy types] and say with a straight face they don’t look exactly like typical white americans.

3 The majority of white americans who get their dna tested overlap a lot with the British. They don’t overlap with other countries as much as they do the British.

4 Look at this very website for evidence. All these politicians, all these actors and actresses of British ancestry and the ones with German ancestry almost always seem to have more British ancestry.

Typical White American phenotype is more like Ashton Kutcher or Tom Cruise.

You sound dumb. What is whiter looking? Finland has the most blonde population on Earth yet they have more Asian admixture than most of the darker haired countries LOL. Both Cruise and Ashton look perfectly white. Typical British phenotypes. If having dark hair like that meant non white how come Scandinavia has far more foreign admixture than countries like Britain?

He hardly has any German input according to the FACTS and really does not look German, those who say he is are just delusional and are probably German themselves and buy the way there are more blonds in Britain than there are in Germany.
Most of the US leading actors are of British decent which makes sense because the Brits kick started this country that goes for all the Australian actors/celebs too, they are all British decent Russel Crowe, Guy Pearce, Cris hems-worth, Nicole Kidman, folks I could go on and on

Fact is Pitt is mostly uncommon in Britain. He’s not exclusive to Britain either as ive seen French, Germans, as well as Scandinavian who looked just like him. He could have anything from Norman, Saxon, or Norse blood as Southern England has pretty much been invaded by everyone on the planet.

gaabz June 25, 2014 at 10:00 pm

Caliste you are a fool or purposely misleading, you added a blog of the lower class Brits !

Fabo July 3, 2014 at 9:50 am

So tired of trolls like you trolling the British. People like you always post lower class Brits and pretend the lower class is any better looking in other countries.

Here’s a bunch of good looking Anglo guys. (careful as some of the content is NSFW).

What are you going to now say all those thousands of guys would fit better in Germany, Scandinavia or where the hell ever because they’re good looking? Please get out of here with such nonsense.

Point is Brad Pitt is mostly British and looks British. You guys just can’t stand that. So sick of the other ethnicities constantly trying to take claim for British good looking people. Take pride in your own groups and stop trying to claim the British always.

caliste August 3, 2014 at 12:08 pm

Your link does not work and I bet it was a blog full of aussies and not actual British people. This is the reality of typical Brits who go on holiday to Spain, Greece, & Italy and most Europeans say the same thing about them. This is what the BULK look like.

http://britishareclassless.tumblr.com/

Even Brits themselves will admit to not being on the same level aesthetically as continental Europeans. I’m sorry but all the mixed celebrities who represent not even 1% of brits you can post does not change the fact the average brit is nothing pleasant to look at and the average person from most of euro countries as well as america looks better.

It is a fact that the brits are diverse. having being influenced by everyone from romans, normans, vikings etc. How do you think exotic types like David Gandy, orlando bloom look like they do? If you think Gandy looks British you’re crazy. He clearly looks Italian. There’s a study that over 1 million brits today are descended from Romans alone. Those are he goodlooking brits imo the super pale ones like wayne rooney pretty ugly imo.

gaabz August 13, 2014 at 10:37 pm

I don’t know if some Brit stole your wife or husband or you are an out of work actor because they gave the role to some Brit but what you are saying stinks of sour grapes, sounds bitter and to be honest just ridiculous, the only thing you got right is the fact that Brits have a very mixed input due to multiple invasions throughout their history. According to your warped mind the celebs who are mostly English or British ( which is basically most celebs in Hollywood and are thought to be most attractive ) only look good because they have a tiny bit of foreign ancestry? Besides the fact that common sense and most people here agree that such a small amount of ancestry would have no bearing on what that person/celeb would look like you seem to think this happens over and over again? What do you think ” mostly English ” means ? and are you seeing something else when it reads Scottish, Irish and Welsh ? Seriously I can pick out most of the celebs that us in the states and maybe even the world think are most beautiful and they will all be PREDOMINANTLY or ALL British and you will come back and spout the same sorry ass theory that flys smack into the face of fact.
Last year I went to see friends and family in Europe and a few of them had the misconception that most of us from the US are overweight or obese which obviously isn’t true but I am not going to think this is the general view peeps have of us, just the few uninformed.

Fabo November 9, 2014 at 8:29 am

ACTUALLY NO. Most of the guys on here are actually normal English people, Also some soldiers. The Americans/Aussies that the blog posts are English or Scottish as the creator stated with sometimes half Irish ancestry. What difference does it make if there’s some Aussies? Aussies are predominantly British stock, you can look at their faces and see that.

None of these guys look “ugly” to me.

I’d say on average brits and Americans are fairly equal in terms of attractiveness and yes most actors are a combination of ancestries, but there are a heck of a lot who are of predominantly english descent, like Brad Pitt. Brad Pitt would easily fit in England, Germany, Or Holland, possibly Scandinavia. You can’t post pictures of lower class ugly British men and call it the average, like all countries Britain has ugly people and beautiful people. :)

Some actors are a combination of ancestries. However most? are pred British. Most actors ancestries consist British isles descents English, Scottish, Irish, or Welsh with some having some distant German ancestry. Brit Americans are more common than any other ancestry in entertainment in America. With only possibly Jews being almost as numerous only because they’re disproportionate in the industry.

Less English men would be single or on (Jeremy Kyle) far & few between and posh guys are no better really… To me brad look like the all American dream guy. Good teeth. No bold hair spots.

Yes Americans take better care of themselves. So do Australians which is why they also tend to look great. Thats not the point. People aren’t accepting the fact that it has a lot to do with the culture of British people. Most who are calling the British ugly blame it on stupid crap like genetics or inbreeding. Thats whats pissing the Brits off. If it was a problem with their genetics. If they did possess some sort of “ugly gene” people in the colonies wouldn’t look so great because whether people want to accept it or not. The typical American/Australian phenotype is British in origin. They don’t look like Germans on average nor Italians nor French but British.

kosko January 18, 2015 at 3:08 am

Americans and Australians have higher obesity rates than the UK. Maybe there is a higher percentage of people in USA/Australia who work out loads due to better weather but in general having visited all these countries Brits look no worse.

Go to Uk and you will find British Peoples with dark complexion like C.zeta Jones , pierce Brosnan , Mr Bean and more , and also germanic looking people like David Beckham and prince william.

Alice January 6, 2014 at 6:40 pm

Pierce Brosnan doesn’t have a dark complexion he is actually freckled and blue eyed. There was recently a write up and gene discovered in the Icelandic population that cause this colouring. It is actually an adaption to people living further away from the equator and people with this gene have less pigmentation in their skin and eyes.

Germanic is really a language group. Even Germans aren’t purely Germanic. All people originally came from other places. Southern Germany was at one time very Celtic but culture and language changes but the majority of the people don’t. It’s not like the English people are particularly mixed. Also Pierce Brosnan and Catherine Zeta Jones are not English.

Alice January 6, 2014 at 7:06 pm

It’s also not like Britain is the only place with people with dark hair and eyes. There are plenty of them in Germany also. I’m sure that there are more brown eyed Germans than British people anyway.

caliste February 15, 2014 at 11:28 am

Uhm Celtics were driven out of Germany. They didn’t intermix with the population like the celts of Britain did.

Also lol @ people saying Brad Pitt looks purely British. SURE the Germanic portion of Britain yes (East England) he looks nothing like the majority of the Celtic looking Brits who make up the bulk of the British isles and not Germanics. Ultimately Brad Pitt just like Paul Walker would pass better in Germany or Scandinavia. The American novelist Steinbeck of German descent is the exact replica of Paul Walker, and so is the Swedish footballer Olof Mellberg.

Brad like Paul looks completely Germanic. Its nothing exclusively British about them since they look like the Germanic Brits who themselves came from Scandinavia and Germany.

How does it make sense to say that people like Brad Pitt and Paul Walker would fit better in Germany when the vast majority of the ancestry is of British Isles origin? I think people have a blind spot. Have people actually been to the British Isles?

Ireland, Wales and Scotland have plenty of blonds and the majority of people are blue eyed and have the mid-light brown hair that Brad Pitt has.

Lots of Irish Celts with this colour hair.

Theres tons of athropology sites out there with endless pics of Brits. Not a single one looks even remotely close to Brad Pitt or Paul Walker. Brits look more like Gary Beadle from Geordie Shore or average with a spike in Germanic looking ones only found in certain corners of East England. The rest look nothing like that. Brits aren’t that Germanic as a whole most look Celtic.

Pit & Walker would pass better in Scandinavia than they would modern Britain.

Alice February 16, 2014 at 6:21 pm

I’m well aware of the Anthropology sites. I’ve looked at plenty myself. The fact remains that Paul Walker and Brad Pitt are mixed Europeans and I haven’t seen any Germans that look particularly like them.

What do you think of a Celt like Kenneth Branagh?

I find the argument a bit mute anyway because both Brad Pitt and Paul Walker have much more of their ancestry from the British Isles. Countries like Ireland have very little Germanic input but have plenty of blue eyed blonds in the population.

Atlantid phenptype means the widest range of transition types between Meds and Nordids, Kate Beckinsale foe example. She has Sub-Nordic morphology and white skin, but with dark hair and eyes, so Atlantids can look very diverse. In this case half of German population can be classified as Atlantids, identical alike as the western europeans, and the central european types, so infinite number of variations.

MOST BRITONS ARE NOT VERY GOOD LOOKING UNLESS THEY ARE MIXED. AMERICANS ARE BEAUTIFUL

caliste February 16, 2014 at 12:53 pm

Most British people aren’t even British themselves. Look at a large chunk of the footballers, entertainers, in England alone a lot of them were not English fully. Even the singers and actors. Even Kate Bekinsale has foreign ancestry. Even Beckham has some Jew ancestry. The whole royal family is basically German. British in itself means being mixed. There’s even Norman ancestry in Britain. And it has been recently found that over 1 million Brits have Roman ancestry. It always boggles my mind how the British keep trying to keep this “We’re pure germanics” crap going because when we look at the average Brits compared to Northern Germans or Scandinavians that doesn’t seem to be the case at all.

notional December 20, 2013 at 4:46 pm

Pitt looks almost Southern European, he has naturally tanned skin. I don’t know why no life nazis in here are saying he’s too “Germanic” looking to be English

andrew December 21, 2013 at 11:18 am

there’s no such thing as “naturally tanned skin”. You can’t be tanned without sun exposure, natural or artificial.
Pitt doesnt look S. European at all, not because of blue eyes or fair hair, that S. Europeans can have, but due to his facial structure that is very Germanic. He would fit better in Germany, Scandinavia and Netherlands than in England, despite what people said here.

notional December 22, 2013 at 6:59 pm

Then what are his facial features then? He looks north atlantid to me and that is a British phenotype, same as Matt Bomer he looks like Brad Pitt (north atlantid) and is mostly English. Also heres a quote from the Germanic wiki page

“modern Germanic peoples include the Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, Icelanders, Germans, Austrians, Dutch, Afrikaners, Flemish, and ENGLISH”

The English are only Germanic because they speak a Germanic language. Ethnically they’re the least Germanic of all the Germanic groups. Only East England is really Germanic, and its far less Germanic now than it was years ago. The British are just like the French. Infact a study on most mixed countries of Europe found the British to be just as mixed as the French are.

ricky January 2, 2014 at 11:20 am

He certainly looks much more Germanic than English thats for sure or to be more precise he looks totally Scandinavian/German and not English at all

rot January 5, 2014 at 6:19 pm

English people are Germanic lol.

Anglo-Saxon = Anglos from northen Germany and Saxons from Sacheny-Germany,

What language does English people speak? An Germanixc language.

Alice January 3, 2014 at 12:21 am

Even though most of his ancestry is British Isles? I find it strange that so many actors on here supposedly fit better in German, Scandinavia etc than were their majority ancestry come from. Makes you wonder if people know what they are talking about.

caliste February 16, 2014 at 12:58 pm

Just because someone has other ancestry doesn’t mean the phenotype cannot show up as another. Its just like Rob Lowe who is German and also has British ancestry but he looks far more German than he does British especially in the jaw area. Most Brits do not have jaws like that, but they can be found by the loads in Germany & Netherlands. Most brits are what anthropologist call “Atlantids”. These types are not that dominant in the rest of the Germanic countries, only in Britain are they so numerous. Atlantid would be like Christian Bale and thats what average Brits look like. Not Pitt or Walker. Brad Pitt himself has a faelid jaw. Something that is dominant in Germany/Netherlands and rare in Britain. Which means Pitt more than likely inherited his phenotype from his German ancestry.

caliste February 16, 2014 at 1:03 pm

Rofl have you been to Southern European nations? No he does not. The only way a Southern European can look like Pitt is if they have substantial Northern Ancestry. You realize before Northerners invasions of Italy most would have looked like Sicilians right? The light ones in Nothern Italy today are the result of Celtic & Germanic migrations.

andrew March 30, 2014 at 3:23 pm

there were Roman emperors with those features before any Germanic invasion, and there are tales about normal Roman citizens with that appareance. Sicilian people arent actually different from Italians.
In general watching just hair/eye color is stupid, an English person with black hair and brown eyes looks quite different from a Southern European, at same time a blond Italian is different from a Scandinavian

daniel December 15, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Please don´t say Brad Pitt looks like typical German its stupid . He doesn´t look like Typical German .
The Name Pitt is of English and Irish Origin. Yes its true not every English guy is Handsome like Beckham but you will find some English or British who looks like Brad .
You know Michael Owen ??? a famous British footballer who played in the English National team. For me Owen looks like Brad in some point .

daniel December 15, 2013 at 12:38 pm

Hey i was born and raised in Germany and living here but my Parents are Indian Origin. Hey No one looks here like Brad Pitt
really you can´t find any German Guy who looks like him , so for me he doesn´t looks German. For me Brad Pitt looks British , perhaps not realy English but a mixed betwen English/Irish or English/Welsh or some what. My Unckel is living in London and i have visited him severel times so i know how a British Men look . Ok Today they are not so Blond and Blue Eyed like Germans but the Facial features and Bone structures are like Brad Pitt .

Loos November 26, 2013 at 9:22 am

LOL at people saying he’s 1/512 German. You do know that many of the German Americans changed their surnames right? So just because some of his ancestors had Anglo surnames does not gurantee they themselves did not have German ancestry.

Fact is Pitt looks a hell of a lot more German than he does either English or Scottish. Ive seen far more Germans with his structure than Brits. Pitt has what most anthropologist would call a “Faelid” jaw. Thats extremely common in Germany & the Netherlands not that common in Britain.

notional December 9, 2013 at 8:31 pm

They don’t use surnames, they use the census records dummy. He looks british, Germans usually have long narrow faces

Jess December 13, 2013 at 10:01 am

No they do not. Germans are mostly Faelid. Faelids are robust. Faelids have the same jaw that Pitt does.

Here is a German footballer who looks like Pitt.

http://mediadb.kicker.de/2004/fussball/spieler/xl/23621.jpg

Now find me a Brit who looks like him. The Germanic Brits came from Germany in the first place they were not Native to the British isles. Britain’s Germanic population = Denmark & Germany. Only the celts were native to the British isles.

Pitt like most Americans looks German. Only the East Midlands (the most Germanic part of Britain) will you find his phenotype. It is still a minority in the British and more common in Germany in Scandinavia.

England is the least Germanic nation of them all due to substantial influence from other groups.

51023 December 13, 2013 at 10:08 am

Yeah he can’t be mostly English. Ive been to England, the average Englishmen looks nothing like him. They’re relatively darker in hair color, pasty, and generally ugly. You won’t find many Brad Pitts in England at all xD if you could England wouldn’t be considered the ugliest country by nearly everyone in the world. We have a lot of English tourist who come down here they’re generally fat and have an inbred piggish look about them.

There was no such thing as an Anglo Saxon race. Anglo Saxons were the mixing of the Germanic tribes that came from Germany & Denmark.

Actually i know what’s the drivel you do mean, so that’s the main question to Germanic dreamers- how this mysterious cluster could be Germanic if the overwelming majority of all descendants AND ANCSTOR SUBCLADES concentrates in the Western Europe and strikingly different from Danish/Swedish whose countries some dumbs do keep consider as homeland for English genetically , and now explain to Danes/Swedes that they’re not real Germanic because of different genetic situation
What about language. If there’s a total displacement of population in England, so there must be cituation just like in Iceland, pure Germanic or like in modern Germany where language received a lot of French-Latin lexis but saved initial structure.

England has produced loads of beautiful men in the world even a lot of the hot American actors are mostly Anglo.

Look at all these gorgeous men? can you say England doesn’t produce hotties?

As for the other guy who said Anglo-Saxons were native to Britain. They weren’t Angles, Saxons, & Jutes came from around modern day Germany & Denmark. The homeland of the Germanics as a group was around the Scandinavia penisuala and Germania. They were foreign to the British isles before the invasion. Before the invasio the Isles was populated by celtic tribes and spoke gaelic.

Don’t forget the Romans.

RAD December 15, 2013 at 7:20 am

Romans had no genetic impact on Britain though that is why the British Isles does not cluster with any Latin nation but rather other Northern European populations.

Romans didn’t have a substantial impact on the German gene pool either.

The only reason France even comes close to Britain is due to Northern France and the input they have.

The so called Roman ancestry in the Isles is greatly exagerrated. The majority are not descended from Romans.

Marc you are delusional. You’re warping actual history. Too bad all genetic studies go against your theories.

The British Isles cluster mostly with the other North nations on every genetic mapping. They overlap with the Germans, Swedes, Dutch mostly.

Genetic mapping of Europeans. Brits cluster nowhere close to any of the Latin nations. The only ones who even come remotely close are the French and that is because of Northern France.

http://i.imgur.com/glIof9i.png

Get that Stephen Ozzmeiher crap out of here. His findings were debunked long ago. I suggest you get up to date.

I think you’re missing a few brain cells to begin with. The Anglo Saxons were descended from people who migrated out of Germania as Germanic tribes did (as well as Northern Denmark and Southern Sweden). They were not in the British isles before. Linquinstic evolution and DNA goes against your retarded made up theory.

English still has a Germanic core, which is why it is still considered a Germanic language. The amount of foreign words in English means nothing as most languages have adopted foreign words into their language. The point is those words were ADAPTED to the English language not the other way around they are not used in their original forms. They were anglicized. Using your crappy logic most languages in the world aren’t really anything since all of them have adopted words from other languages.

notional August 10, 2013 at 10:39 am

He looks British, he’s only 1/512 German and not Nordic at all, but most European countries look the same. There’s no real difference between countries like Norway or Ireland, just a higher percentage of people with certain hair colours.

andrew August 10, 2013 at 4:40 pm

I’m sure there’s difference between Ireland and Norway

“He’s your typical USA citizen. Mixed European with native American.”

NO LIES DETECTED

Maybe some African-Black as well.

Rob June 11, 2012 at 9:52 am

He’s your typical USA citizen. Mixed European with native American.

Diana April 11, 2012 at 4:26 am

Is having very distant tribal native heritage the new black ? It goes around like a Hollywood trend all of a sudden like adopting black or Asian babies..

Anglo July 25, 2012 at 6:40 pm

In what reality did White Americans want black ancestry? What are you smoking?

levangelista36 July 26, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Some do have it, although it is very minimal.

Mena April 5, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Brad Pitt is a very handsome, sexy man!!!

nnnnn November 20, 2012 at 12:27 am

He’s not handsome, not ugly. He’s just metrosexuell

Angel Syrene April 2, 2012 at 8:00 pm

He is ugly I don’t like he is so pretentious

Arun March 26, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Brad Pitt is a good looking Guy and a good actor. Stop talking too much ,the Name Pitt has English Origin you can read this everywhere in the Internet that Brad has 80% British ancestry with little German . I am living in Germany and I am half Asian Indian and half Portuguese descent and some Racist Germans think i am a Arab Guy or Turkish Guy .

Mena April 5, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Northern Europeans see everyone in a weird way.. usually they never guess right of what you are..

me April 6, 2012 at 3:36 pm

Germans aren’t northern europeans

Mena April 6, 2012 at 3:49 pm

ok sorry.. when I think northern european anyone who is not a southern european.. but you are right… it s western european..

andrew March 10, 2013 at 7:16 pm

yes Germany is in Central Europe

inkognito April 6, 2012 at 3:31 pm

LOL i live in Germany too and Talk bullshit!!!

IGK 3 April 6, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Southern europeans aren’t white. Thats why northern europeans think their from asia or north africa.

Mena April 6, 2012 at 4:03 pm

So what are southern europeans? we re just dark whites.. you can find light and dark in any race.. not all blacks are dark and you can find very pale chinese people and very dark too..

IGK 3 April 6, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Southern europeans are mix with north africans.
Morroco ,Algeria, Tunisha ect… that invaded those countries. so that why spanish, portuguese ,italians greeks and some french look dark. But of course southern europeans will deny it. you can say their bi-racial.

Mena April 6, 2012 at 4:45 pm

I just say Mediterranean.. for Southern europeans, Northern Africa and Near East (Lebanon, Syria, Israel)

bvision April 6, 2012 at 8:31 pm

i am Sicilian and English

i consider myself white

i don’t even know anyone who doesn’t consider southern europeans white

there’s plenty of italian kids in new york. they all call themselves white and so does everyone else. guess we’re wrong lol

it doesn’t matter to me either way. stupid argument

Mena April 7, 2012 at 11:27 am

As you see bvision there are people of Northern Europe who dont consider Southern Europeans white..

I ve heard it before.. especially when I had come to USA.. all white American women were asking me if I was from Venezuela.. and everyone else I met thought I was hispanic and it was one of the summers I hadnt gone once at the beach so I wasnt tanned at all..!!

I guess it has to do with each person.. not all Southern Europeans are the same.. but people tend to consider the darker ones non white..

bvision April 8, 2012 at 2:54 am

my dad is very dark. he’s always been seen as white here in america. i have been in California and grew up in New York. i’ve never had this problem. most people know southern euros are dark. it’s our stereotype and there are so many who have italian, greek, spanish, portuguese parents. many light typical american white girls have southern euro dads or moms.even Britney Spears, who is supposed to be this all-American girl, has sicilian and Maltese in her blood. even Jennifer Aniston has Greek and Italian in her blood. some of the most famous white celebrities are southern euro. i don’t know anyone who doesn’t see robert de niro and al pacino as white. they are 2 of
the most famous white actors to date. even jersey shore boys refer to themselves as white.

out here anyone from eastern euro is treated as more exotic than an Italian. nadya nepomynashaya, alina vacariu, and mila kunis seen as more exotic than James Gandolfini and Monica Bellucci. mila is jew and nadya is slav but being from eastern euro makes them much more exotic than Italian-Americans who are such a big part of our cinema, culture, and history. even the lily white kids on Laguna Beach back in the day had southern euros in their family, had a southern euro parent

but this is stupid argument. i don’t really care what people think of my ethnicity or
choose to call me. all i know is that this has never been my treatment and i’m not that light myself

Mena April 8, 2012 at 5:30 am

lucky for you.. I was just told I look hispanic and that I look like Lala Vasquez

Anglo July 25, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Mena i’m sorry but you are wrong. Learn REAL history. Southern Europeans are not mixed. Infact Spain is one of the most homogeneous countries in Europe. Please stop assuming people are mixed because they don’t fit with your flawed idea of what white is.

me April 6, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Northern European dont think that they must have brain and maps unlike you LC

IGK 3 April 8, 2012 at 12:27 am

I’m glad to see a southern european reconizing that not all southern european are white. I’m sure their are some that are white but that’s a small minority.
The majority look like Antonio bandera or Ray romano features, and skin tone.

Mena April 8, 2012 at 11:02 am

Most races if not all are mixed to some degree.. some more some less..

especially the ones close to other races like mediterranean countries -Greece for example and Crete that used to be a trading center for thousands of years- it would be a bit impossible if their people hadnt mixed at all during all these thousands of years.. there was occupation from Turks, Romans, -Arabs in Crete- among others..

even on pottery you can see Greeks with people of other origins.. Alexander the Great himself had 2 children with Persian women. (both killed young)

Chinese were for thousands of years isolated in their country but today I know many Chinese/Americans and some Chinese/Greek and Chinese/Australians. so when they ll have kids that will b 2nd generation of mixed Chinese..

Anglo July 25, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Whether his surname is English or not. Brad Pitt looks nothing like a typical Englishmen. His type is extremely rare in England. I have no idea why the English hail themselves as “Anglo” so proudly. Anglo Saxons were hailed as fair haired & fair skinned. That is not modern day England in the slightest. The English are the darkest of all the other Germanic countries.

Modern day english are not all faired head and they don’t look at all pure Germanic, if anything Celtics had a greater contribution to the English gene pool, and certain studies show that. The English also have as much Haplogroup Rb1 as Scotland.

nnnnn November 20, 2012 at 12:26 am

“english people are the darkest” – cuz they are not
pur english. People you see at the street are most immigrants or from mixed-marriages

I doubt, he’s cherokee. All stars tell, they are
cherokee. It’s the new trend?

sadie March 25, 2012 at 2:39 am

Who cares he looks awful and as someone said he is shacked up with his ho. She does look like Morticia always in black and anorexic.

bvision March 22, 2012 at 8:55 pm

http://www.bradpittnow.com/images/brad_pitt_geneology.jpg

his native must be very far back. he doesn’t have any natives in his genealogy but i’m thinking they maybe the unknowns from the 1600s

Arun March 10, 2012 at 5:25 pm

hey Stupid idiot´s , he is not Native american ,hey look at him
he looks like white European or White American .
I thing he has more English Blood in him because the Name Pitt is English Origin but im sure he has also Irish Blood in him
Irish Mens are really handsome ,(im not gay)

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:49 pm

He is a Native American man. He is not white. Shiloh, Vivian, and Knox are Native Americans as well. In the new Pocahontas film, Brad Pitt will either be the chief or the brother to Pocahontas, who will either be played by Anne Hathaway or Megan Fox. Julia Roberts will be the chief’s Navajo wife and Kim Basinger will be the chief’s Choctaw mistress. That is why Brad Pitt is never cast as a white man.

Because he is a Native American man and should be the representation for how Natives look.

gurl March 22, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Don’t be ridiculous.

Roger Is My Lover March 22, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Don’t hate.

Carmen April 4, 2012 at 8:20 am

Why do you love race so much? And you deny that nearly all good looking white people are white. Why so much hate? Im southern european and already i know that on behalf of you, I am not white either. your actually hideous! LMFAO

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:50 pm

He is full-blooded Native American and will play the brother to Pocahontas in the new film about her.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 6:54 pm

Why was he cast as a Greek God in Troy? Why was he cast as a white Southerner in Inglorious Bastards? He is not white! He is a Native American man! He said it himself!

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2008/12/09/article-1093074-02BDEFF1000005DC-17_468x351.jpg

Those are his parents! Do they look white to you?!

me March 10, 2012 at 7:56 pm

he and Jennifer Aniston were a great couple.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 8:11 pm

I thought so as well. They both have gone downhill ever since they separated.

me March 8, 2012 at 9:59 pm
me February 23, 2012 at 9:20 pm

I saw was missing Native American in his ethnicity.Unlike those who say ,he doesn’t looks very northern European.He must be 1/16 Cherokee.

me February 23, 2012 at 9:40 pm

hahaha,i agree

me February 23, 2012 at 9:45 pm

He looks a bit Saami in this pic.

Marc February 27, 2012 at 3:25 am

if i made movie about Pokahontas i would guess Brad Pitt for Opechancanough’s role,Chuck Norris for Powhatan (Pokahontas father),Julia Roberts as his wife and Ann Hathaway for Pokahontas role

I love you, Roger Scientist March 8, 2012 at 10:02 pm

Har. Har.

>_>

Habe February 23, 2012 at 8:37 pm

He is a little bit Native American. He is not full blooded.

lopac February 23, 2012 at 8:49 pm

dude you seem to be obsessed with celebethnicity.
you read everybody’s comments. do you have nothing
better to do in your life.

Arun February 6, 2012 at 4:13 pm

I am not sure but i read somewhere he has also Irish Blood too.

john January 29, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Brad Pitt is definately English ( too blond for Irish) and of viking blood

nnnnn May 12, 2012 at 1:27 am

“Viking blood”. I don’ know a country “Vikingland”.

branden January 26, 2012 at 9:34 am

brad pitt aka the showoff is probably only of english descent. That’s right! English is his ethnicity. A nation unable to speak any other language in my opinion.The bad news is English is a culture who took over and destroyed most of other countries throughout the whole damn planet! That is exactly why it is our dominate language in most parts of the world. It even also conquered the North American Natives into what is now called United States of America. English is the most biggest and probably yet the most controlling sorry nationality in history, honestly 100% from what is said in what I have read in world history books which I honestly do believe. But, the good news is it is the most understandable language to learn in the world at the same time.

nnnnn May 12, 2012 at 1:29 am

I know now, there is no one WASP in Hollywood. BTW, where
are “thick lips” debates?

Scott January 14, 2012 at 6:33 pm

No. not fully German . I am sure he is more English than other nations.

janet December 23, 2011 at 10:50 am

i had a the strongest feeling he was german…and i was right!!!

ikilledkenny January 7, 2012 at 6:48 am

but he is just as much english or welsh as german though isn’t he? i wouldn’t say pitt is german like he is fully german.

nnnnn May 12, 2012 at 1:30 am

Why? Not very logic (I mean ridiculous “Bastards”)

Liam O'Connel December 23, 2011 at 8:50 am

Brad Pitt and Barack Obama are descended from the same man who was of German heritage, their German heritage goes really far back (unless both have more recent german heritage aswell as the german descended ancestor they both share)

créer site photo September 3, 2011 at 7:06 am

Wow, I love Knightley.Not many people can have so many different hairstyle. I have to say though, she is an extremely bad comedian, and if she weren’t blessed with that stunning face, she would never be cast in film!

raciality 1o1 August 31, 2011 at 5:18 pm

by racial, he , by racial, he by racial

Trese May 26, 2011 at 8:46 pm

By the way, you say you can’t tell the difference between Irish, English, Scottish or Welsh?? LOL All Europeans may look alike but if you look closer there’s a difference in each Nationality. Look for it and you’ll see.

Trese May 26, 2011 at 8:45 pm

Are you sure he’s not even a smidgen Irish??
