Chloe Bennet is an American actress and singer.

Her father is of Chinese descent. Her mother has English, Scottish, Irish, Swiss-German, and German, ancestry. At age fifteen, Chloe moved to China, where she was a singer under her birth name of Chloe Wang. She studied Mandarin while living in Beijing and Shanghai.

Some web sites have stated that Chloe’s mother is Jewish. This is not correct. Chloe’s mother was raised in a devout Christian household by missionary parents, and is not of Jewish heritage.

Chloe’s maternal grandfather is The Rev. Donald Wayne Crane (the son of The Rev. Clifford Cecil Crane and Emilie/Euilie Louise Barrett). The Rev. Clifford was the son of Edward Eggleston Crane and Florence Eliza McDermott. Emilie was the daughter of Henry B. Barrett and Martha Gaddy.

Chloe’s maternal grandmother is Beatrice Pendleton (the daughter of Kyle Montague Pendleton and Vera Cecillia Dingus). Beatrice was born in Kentucky. Kyle was the son of George Hiram Pendleton and Alice Serena Eads. Vera was the daughter of David Crockett Dingus and Bathsheba Webb.

She does not look like white Republican lowlife Bush family. She looks edgy and educated. Olivia Munn looks like Betsy BBQ cookoff white trash.

Definitely see the Asian ancestry.

Her facial features don’t look all the way White, don’t understand how some can say she looks White. Ignorance at it’s best.

follers July 12, 2015 at 12:21 pm

Wouldn’t a person who is unable to spell “its” and “it’s” be a better example of ignorance at its best?

bearboy July 12, 2015 at 5:52 pm

Kinda harsh

California July 12, 2015 at 11:09 pm

LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Fuck off, pathetic bitch. Like your ass has never made a mistake before……. Give me a fucking break. Who the fuck made you the grammar police?

Kimmel July 31, 2016 at 6:17 am

Isn’t using race to describe humans ignorance in itself?

bearboy August 26, 2017 at 5:18 pm

If you think describing celebrities by their race is ignorant why did you create an account with this website?

I thought, “she has something asian I don’t know”….I was right lol

She looks almost white, maybe 1/8th Asian.

cwm85 August 7, 2015 at 1:19 pm

1/8 is 12 percent. And she looks way more than 12 percent asian. She more than likely 50 east Asian. Rest European.

byyong83 November 13, 2015 at 8:06 am

Being half asian doesn’t mean you end up look half asian!

A person can be 1/8 and still look more Asian then someone who is 1/2 and vice versa.

It’s down to the random genes you end up inheriting from your parents.

She looks like a female version of Ryan Reynolds.

roman2886 June 22, 2014 at 5:11 pm

She looks more White than Chinese which is very rare White Chinese mixes usually more Chinese than White i’m a White Filipino mix and i look more White than Filipino most White Filipino mixes do

AW January 15, 2016 at 11:09 pm

I agree but sometimes people like Ingrid Neilson or Berenice Marlohe, who are both Asian/European mixes, look more white than Asian. It’s just genetics. They’re random lol.

Princess stop smoking crack

Your Mom June 12, 2014 at 4:20 pm

She looks a little like Michelle Branch. Chloe looks only a quarter Asian instead of half. She actually looks Hispanic.

Freerk July 12, 2014 at 1:32 pm

“Her father, Bennet Wang, is of Chinese descent.”

“of Chinese descent” can say really different things. Perhaps her paternal great-grandfather is the only Chinese in her ancestry …

Also Caucasian has a large range – her looks would be very different if that means mainly Swedish or Greek.

AW January 15, 2016 at 11:12 pm

I was just about to post the same thing. She could even pass as Spanish or Portuguese, in my opinion.

Check7t April 18, 2014 at 6:37 am

I see minor Asian influence, mostly white.

WTF April 17, 2014 at 1:00 pm

Wow, she looks predominately white. I wouldn’t have guessed she was half Asian. Maybe half Hispanic. She looks a little like Kylie Jenner.

Nikki April 16, 2014 at 7:35 pm

well say what part of europe she is from!!
