Camilla Belle is an American actress. She was born Camilla Belle Routh in Los Angeles.

Camilla’s father, Jack Wesley Routh, is from Kingman, a small town in Kansas, and has English, German, and French ancestry.

Camilla’s mother, Deborah Cristina, is Brazilian. Camilla stated in an interview:

Well my Mum is Brazilian but her family originated from Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well. My dad is American but French on his grandmother’s side and there might be some Native American in there as well – so it’s really mixed up but the main part is European!

Camilla speaks Portuguese and Spanish. She is named after a Brazilian soap opera character, Camila, from Cavalo de Aço.

Camilla’s paternal grandfather was Jack Eugene Routh (the son of Jacob Routh and Edith “Leota” Morss). Jacob was the son of Francis Marion Routh and Amanda Jane Robbins. Edith was the daughter of Amos Melvin Morss and Sarah Belle Lawman.

Camilla’s paternal grandmother was Martha June Anderson (the daughter of William Albert Anderson and Roxie Belle Brown). William was the son of John Steven Anderson and Mary Katherine Graham. Roxie was the daughter of Wesley Samuel Brown and Martha Eldora Bell.

Camilla’s maternal grandmother is named Deborah.

Her maternal grandmother is Deborah, possibly Gould.

stlucas January 25, 2017 at 10:50 am

Camilla’s mother is actually named Deborah Cristina, although I really don’t believe Gould is her maiden name. It isn’t Portuguese, nor Italian, but certainly British.

Her instagram account:

bablah January 25, 2017 at 11:44 am

She stated on her facebook that her grandmother is called Deborah.

About Gould, yeah, it doesn’t sound Portuguese, that’s why I said possibly.

allennox January 17, 2016 at 9:04 pm

Definitely see some Italian in her

passingtime85 November 22, 2015 at 7:49 am


Is it certain that Camilla doesn’t have any Jewish heritage?

This twitter post has me wondering:

follers November 22, 2015 at 1:41 pm

Well, she was evidently raised Catholic. Her father isn’t Jewish. I don’t know her mother’s genealogy, except for what Camilla said, “her family originated from Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well”.

passingtime85 November 23, 2015 at 1:50 am

All I know about her mom, is her name, Deborah Cristina Gould. Gould sometimes can be a name Jews use to Anglicize names like Gold/stein/berg and the like, but that middle name makes me pretty dubious.

stlucas August 28, 2015 at 9:06 pm

She has those soft Portuguese features just like Nelly Furtado. Very pretty.

sparkles180 August 11, 2015 at 7:51 pm

She’s super pretty and I love her name. I thought she was italian or croatian.

M June 4, 2015 at 7:05 pm

Exotic looking. She’s pretty.

EuMesmo1986 October 13, 2014 at 6:04 am

Latinos are not a race, people. There are white Latinos, black Latinos, Native American Latinos, Mixed race Latinos, East Asian Latinos and Middle Eastern Latinos. When will Americans understand that? This girls is not passing as white, she IS white. A person of wholly European descent is not less white just because he or she is born in a Latin American country. Their DNA don’t change because of that.

eyaeyayooooo June 13, 2014 at 10:06 am

It’s amazing how beautiful she is. She can pass for any ethnicity.

person July 20, 2014 at 7:01 pm

she can only pass for white.

ashash August 15, 2014 at 1:55 pm
andrew October 13, 2014 at 6:08 am

ash isnt her mom white?

ashash October 13, 2014 at 9:21 am
EuMesmo1986 October 13, 2014 at 5:59 am

“Pass for white”? Brazilian is a nationality, not a race. There are millions of whites in Brazil. She is not passing as white, she is white.

thomas1987 October 16, 2014 at 4:06 am

She can only pass for white. Because she’s fully white and looks it. There are only 4 races in the human race(Caucasian, Asian, black, and native American) out of all of those she only looks white, particularly southern European.

cwm85 July 28, 2015 at 3:20 pm

Black is not a race. It’s a color… you Mean African?

Princess June 12, 2014 at 8:28 pm

She looks manly. She would be prettier if she waxed those eyebrows.

ihatemostpeople February 21, 2014 at 7:11 pm

She looks like she could have some Asian ancestry. There are a lot of Brazilians with Asian ancestry, so it’s possible.

andrew February 22, 2014 at 5:51 am

you see Asian everywhere, she’s not Asian

Check7t February 23, 2014 at 1:12 am

Ain’t nothing Asian about her, stop.

WTF June 3, 2014 at 4:01 pm

p.s. check7t, you’re a fuckin hypocrite. i see you bullshitting as well. saying people look like a race when they don’t. so stfu. you do the same exact thing as that person

WTF June 3, 2014 at 4:00 pm

lmfao asian?!? this trick looks 100% italian

shobohunter August 15, 2014 at 7:02 pm

types= trick
that chick. .not trick

EuMesmo1986 October 13, 2014 at 6:01 am

She looks much more Portuguese than Italian, in my opinion. Anyway, Southern Europeans look alike.

Rammer February 23, 2015 at 10:37 am

If “Southern Europeans look alike,” would you confuse Sophia Loren with, say, Manolo Garcia?

Humanid January 11, 2014 at 2:08 am

She is White and mostly Portuguese looking.

Why can’t this site stop using nationalities as an ethnicity?

German-Brazilian sounds bullshit,
native-Brazilian makes sense, not Italian-Brazilian.

notional October 28, 2013 at 1:39 pm

Brazilian isn’t an ethnicity her mother is just Portuguese and Italian

fbwfeiwb November 29, 2013 at 12:01 am

Most white Brazilians actually have at least some distant Native American or black ancestry.

J.J. October 23, 2013 at 7:31 am

correction; her eyes are forest green (green+brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) I think it should be listed

J.J. October 27, 2013 at 7:32 pm

correction; her eyes are just green not forest green

theropod June 24, 2013 at 2:28 am

Since when is “Brazilian” an ethnicity? So is American, Canadian, Argentinian, Australian, Chilean, etc (new world countries) ethncities too?

I’m guessing they mean Portuguese.

ann129 June 22, 2013 at 10:57 pm


Well my Mum is Brazilian but her family originated from
Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well. My dad is American but French on his grandmother’s side and there might be some Native American in there as well – so it’s really mixed up but the main part is European!

Anita March 10, 2013 at 5:04 pm

She is Sephardi Jewish and Portuguese.

Affellay January 5, 2013 at 11:06 am

She should have Amerindian n Black African descent like majority of the “white” Brazilians? huh? I’ve heard tht there was a survey in which they found out most of the Brazilians r not pure Black, White or Indian they r all mixed

JSKaoru December 31, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I know a girl who’s of Spanish and Portuguese descent. She’s blonde and she told me that the entire side of her family that’s Portuguese is blonde. I’ve seen many people of pure Portuguese ancestry with green eyes or red hair or light brown hair. Some people here are ridiculous!
I’m of pure Portuguese ancestry and I’m pale as sh*t!

JSKaoru December 31, 2012 at 9:11 pm

“Pale as sh*t” sounds wrong… pale as milk, perhaps, hahahaha!

Nutella83 February 2, 2013 at 10:56 pm

People have a hard time grasping the concept that people in Southern Europe are also Europeans and are white.

andrew March 10, 2013 at 6:36 pm

yeah a huge part of Portuguese (expecially from the north) ppl don’t look Mediterreanean (you can say the same for Spaniards and Italians) because of the Celtic background. And Portuguese immigrants to Brazil came mostly from the North of the country

Jessica-Tere October 24, 2012 at 12:40 pm

She looks damn near perfect.

GeorgeJeanPierre July 6, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Shes American and Brazilian CULTURE wise, ethnicity wise i would think shes Portuguese English and Probably Native South American

Anita March 10, 2013 at 5:05 pm

She is not Native South American she is Jewish mostly but her mother is white. Her last name is Routh.

andrew March 10, 2013 at 6:38 pm

that’s a stage name as “Angelina Jolie”. Curiously both “belle” and “jolie” mean beautiful,pretty etc.. in English

Mil March 14, 2012 at 11:21 am

she looks white,but not portuguese.The admin. of this site have a source about this?

I love you, Roger Scientist March 14, 2012 at 12:35 pm

What do you think she looks like? O_o

me March 15, 2012 at 8:53 am

That’s because you don’t know how the Portuguese are and you are so ridiculous I bet you come here day by day to rate your comment with a thumbs up.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 15, 2012 at 1:28 pm


You’re not the real ‘me.’


me March 15, 2012 at 6:25 pm
real me lol March 16, 2012 at 4:47 am

WTF? I just used some random “name”. You people are ridiculous.

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 6:35 am

‘me’ is the greatest poster on this site.

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 6:35 am

So you have to respect her.

me March 16, 2012 at 12:09 pm


Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 12:35 pm

What do you think of Camilla Belle? Do you think she looks Portuguese, or no?

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 12:43 pm

What do you think she looks like?

me March 16, 2012 at 12:49 pm

mostly anglo

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 12:52 pm
duh March 20, 2012 at 6:26 am

That’s because you’re dumb as fuck and you don’t know the Portuguese features…

gurl March 20, 2012 at 9:26 am

yes,I know,portuguese has very dark features and she doesn’t.

JSKaoru December 31, 2012 at 9:04 pm

She DOES look Portuguese. I actually saw a girl on a Brazilian channel who looked almost identical to Camilla. There must be something wrong with your eyes.

escaleira February 16, 2013 at 9:44 am

Did you read she’s half anglo-american? Of course she doesn’t look fully portuguese to you. But I can say, she looks fully portuguese for me, her eyes and eyebrows can’t lie. Escaleira is a noble portuguese surname and I know portugueses have many looks, just like italians or spanishs.

me March 4, 2012 at 7:35 pm

In this picture she seems to have spilled oil on her skin.

anen February 7, 2012 at 4:42 pm

She kinda looks like Megan Fox

Raevan January 29, 2012 at 1:07 pm

She set the Specular Level a bit too high

mick January 13, 2012 at 10:18 am

Why is she so shiny?

I love you, Roger Scientist March 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm
Nicole January 12, 2012 at 8:37 pm

I love her eyebrows their well done. :P

Jenny January 9, 2012 at 5:36 am

Yes she does look Portuguese

I love you, Roger Scientist March 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Someone doesn’t think so.

sami January 8, 2012 at 7:27 pm

She looks very Anglo-American

samantha January 3, 2012 at 8:08 pm

She does lol

ahmed March 15, 2012 at 3:18 pm

she looks like what she is

Angel Syrene January 2, 2012 at 1:44 am

she’s look very very Portugese

I love you, Roger Scientist March 14, 2012 at 12:50 pm

A few folks don’t think so.

me March 15, 2012 at 8:46 am

That’s you trolling. She does look very Portuguese. Get a life.

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 12:42 pm

The poster above said that she thinks Camilla looks white but not like an ethnic Portuguese. So, no, I am not trolling.


Meg January 2, 2012 at 1:37 am

Looks very Portuguese to me.

Amanda January 1, 2012 at 5:45 pm

She really pretty and has a great fashion sense.

Jo June 5, 2011 at 8:58 am

Hey, you’re from IMDb. You’re the one who always defends Megan Fox right?

Jo April 12, 2011 at 5:28 pm

Caucasian American? That’s ALL?

And for the last time people BELLE. IS. HER. MIDDLE. NAME. La Belle is a surname, not “Belle” itself. -_- Her surname is Routh, which could be German or who knows what.

Richard Fiorello June 4, 2011 at 12:59 pm

I looked that one up one day ’cause it seemed odd to me, but it, Belle, can also be a surname/last name. And Routh is mostly UK or French.

Jo June 5, 2011 at 8:58 am

Oh, I know =) but it’s typically used mroe as a middle name and it was just surprising pretty much no one else knew that. It’s know how Selma Blair’s real last name is Jewish; Blair is her middle name too (very ironic actually, since Cami and Selma look alike, and both have one-syllable middle names that start with a B).

verwaerde geoffrey December 9, 2010 at 3:13 pm

hello camilla belle my name is verwaerde geoffrey i’m french,

Johanna September 4, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Looks Italian to me, i don’t see the French i guess.

Richard Fiorello June 4, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Italian?? She does not look even a pint.. And you can’t tell us italians from other races unless we have the names and culture. It is very hard to tell we are different, but yeah, we are.

COOLGUY2012 September 20, 2012 at 3:19 pm

She has some resemblance to southern italians (more mediterraneans) and maybe some too to southern french.

meme August 22, 2010 at 8:47 am

not really in the drawn pic, but if you look at the actual rinoa from the final fantasy 8 game, camilla looks just like her, just a tanner version lol

Rockxxz August 18, 2010 at 7:30 pm

“Belle” is a french surname , i think, because Belle is a french word, for say “beautiful” for a woman. And she looks like many french girls here. But yes, it’s true she looks italian, but more sicilian.

Jo April 12, 2011 at 5:26 pm

she’s NOT FRENCH, you guys. GEEZ. That’s her frickin middle name which has been known forever now. Guh.

Richard Fiorello June 4, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Belle is Latin rooted… It is in Spanish- Castelian, English, Portuguese, and French.

Jessica-Tere October 24, 2012 at 12:39 pm

That may be true but Belle isn’t her surname it’s her middle name.

Yoda July 22, 2010 at 12:07 pm

At first I thought she looked classically Italian….but Italians are mixed so the ‘mixed’ look sometimes looks Italian : )

Serpent September 27, 2011 at 10:06 pm

What? If her mother is a Brazilian of Portuguese descent and her father is a American of Anglo descent, she is just white. I do not know what the “mixed look” is. Victoria Rowell’s daughter is a quarter black, and she certainly looks whiter than Camilla, Catherine Zeta Jones, and DJ Pauly D who are not mixed.

Brazilian is not a race. Neither is Portuguese or Italian if that is what you are going for.

George October 23, 2011 at 2:08 pm

italians are mixed ? with what exactly :))? if ure reffering to sicilians being part black story it doesnt rly mean anything. a lot of africans have white in them but they still go for full black description.

izzy June 20, 2010 at 10:14 pm

she is so pretty! but yyeah she does look italian and maybe french

Meme May 26, 2010 at 10:10 pm
