Clint Mauro is an American model, actor, and writer. He is famous for representing Armani Exchange underwear. His father is of half Italian and half Hungarian descent. His mother is of half Italian, one quarter Belgian (Flemish), and likely one quarter German, ancestry.

Clint’s paternal grandfather was Anthony C. Mauro (the son of Joseph Mauro and Clara Saruicata). Anthony was born in Indiana, to Italian parents, from Capaccio, Province of Salerno, Campania.

Clint’s paternal grandmother was Gizella Theresa Szalay (the daughter of Julius M. Szalay and Gizella T. Abraham). Clint’s great-grandparents Julius and Gizella were Hungarian. Julius was born in Fertoszentmiklos, the son of Mike Szalay and Teresa Kocsics. Clint’s great-grandmother Gizella was the daughter of Alex Abraham and Anna Kocsics.

Clint’s maternal grandfather was Joseph Calderone (the son of Rocco Calderone and Philomena Paiano). Joseph was Italian, born in Oppido Mamertina, Reggio Calabria. Philomena was born in Tresilico, Calabria, Italy, and was the daughter of Joseph Paiano and Francesca.

Clint’s maternal grandmother was Betty Lou Soens (the daughter of Arthur Soens and Margaret Josephine Mann). Arthur’s parents were Belgian, with Flemish ancestry. Margaret was likely of German descent.

A question: can an ethnic Hungarian carry the surname “Abraham”?

>can an ethnic Hungarian carry the surname “Abraham”?

Yes, they can.

Look 100% Italian

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 9:20 pm

We were a bit off topic on this page, although not really. We were talking about Italian-Americans and that pertains to Clint. You also found his maternal and paternal grandparents, that he is 50% Italian, and that he also has Hungarian and German ancestry.

Now for some sexiness:

Follers, please tell me I’m not crazy in thinking that she looks 100% Italian. I don’t see German, Norwegian, or Anglo in her at all! LOL.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Why Schmaltz?

Oh . . . It’s a English term derived from Yiddish that means “rendered animal fat.”

I think they’re glad their name is Schmautz. LOL.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 9:15 pm

Stacie looks very Italian to me. :D

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 9:24 pm

No freaking way!

She doesn’t even look like them!

Is she adopted?

Maybe I need to see a close-up!

Maybe she looks like a carbon copy of her Italian grandpa!

She has 4 siblings! I wonder if she is the most Italian-looking of them all!

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this! I know this one girl who is 50% Italian! She is very dark, with the skin, hair, and eyes! But then I saw her parents and freaked because they weren’t as dark as her! Neither was her brother! I thought she for sure was adopted or pulling tricks on me!

I’m shocked! Stacieeee!

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 9:29 pm

I just got done watching the video, and she does look like her mom. I thought it was kind of funny, seeing her mom sing like that. You’re right, though. They were probably darker when younger.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 8:42 am

I wonder if Joey Pantoliano is full Italian.

follers August 18, 2012 at 2:01 pm

His maternal grandparents, Mamie and Gus Centrella, were both Italian-born, as were their parents. I think Joey’s dad was fully Italian, too.

In this movie we’re casting, Joey Pantoliano will be played by British singer Harry Styles, making his acting debut.

bablah August 7, 2017 at 10:37 am

LOL at this prediction of Harry Styles’ acting career.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 4:39 am

But Augusta came from Italy, right? How close is France to Italy?

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 4:23 am

:D

Finally!

What about Alyssa Milano and Tony Danza?

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:29 am

LOL. I thought the post was about Winstead? Or is it also about Milano and Romano?

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:37 am

Hahahaha.

I wish I could see whatever it is you’re trying to post about Winstead and some Italian people. I wonder why it went under moderation. Did you post a link or some weird word?

I know whenever I say M e d i t e r r a n e a n or m o t h e r or f a t h e r, my comment goes under moderation. I have no idea why!

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:10 am

So when they start making movies about De Niro, Pacino, and the like, who are they going to get to play them? A lot of the greatest actors from back in the day were Italian (or part Italian).

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:22 am

That’d actually be an interesting film to watch. Haha!

follers August 18, 2012 at 2:23 am

Mary Elizabeth Winstead Seems like a WASPy lady from the South.

maternal grandfather was a preacher.

She says Ava Gardner was her grandfather’s cousin – http://blogs.amctv.com/movie-blog/2006/09/at-deaths-door.php

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:26 am

:( I wonder what causes it to go under moderation. It may be a certain word or a link.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 3:25 am

I would love to see Garfield play Cazale. That would really test his acting abilities. When they remake the Godfather, and you know they will, who should be Michael, Fredo, Don, Santino, and Tom? I think we should keep the same actors. I would love to see Garfield take on Fredo.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 3:26 am

I would love to see Garfield play Cazale. That would really test his acting abilities. I wonder if he could capture the vulnerability. I once read that Cazale was engaged to Meryl Streep. I had no idea.

Just like I had no idea that he is part Irish (or maybe English).

-_-

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 4:22 am

Cazale’s mom’s name sounds English. Or maybe she was Welsh. I don’t know. It doesn’t sound Irish, but she could be Irish nonetheless.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:08 am

Very interesting.

I giggled when you said Romano and Milano. They rhymed.

Anyway, what do you know about Mary Elizabeth Winstead? She’s definitely not Italian, but I know she’s related to Ava Gardner through Ava’s mom.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:46 am

Stacie is only a quarter? Really? O_O But she looks so Italian. What are her other ancestries?

I know what you mean about moderation. A lot of my comments get stuck in moderation as well.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:55 am

I can’t believe Stacie is only a 1/4th. She looks so Italian. LOL. So does Stephen Colletti.

Ah, so John Turturro’s family is like Al Pacino’s. Al’s dad was Italian-American, but his mom was a Sicilian immigrant.

Do you know anything about Theo Rossi, the guy from Sons of Anarchy? They say he’s Italian, but I doubt he’s full.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:59 am

What about Ray Romano, Martin Scorsese (?), and Mira Sorvino?

I guess people assume that the dark ones are fully Italian because they are dark. Like John Cazale, Ralph Macchio, Stacie Orrico, and Stephen Colletti, but a lot of them are turning out not to be.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 2:00 am

I have also wondered if Alyssa Milano is fully Italian.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:39 am

Are you serious? Are there any others we should know about? Is the Coppola family fully Italian?

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:32 am

Fredo’s legal name is John Holland Cazale. You know, it’s strange how a lot of Italian-Americans choose to identify as solely Italian. For example, I had no idea Robert De Niro was only a 1/4th until I read about his family history. How do their mothers feel about that?

Well, with names, dates, and such, all we really know is that Frank Zappa is definitely Italian. His biography says his grandmom, Theresa, has some French ancestry, but I don’t know the names of his great-grandparents, so that’s that. Haha. I love Frank Zappa.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:44 am

She probably didn’t care. I’m a bit shocked to find out that so many of these Italian actors are mixed, though. Can you please check to see if John Turturro is fully Italian?

follers August 6, 2012 at 2:58 am

Ah, found an obituary of his maternal grandmother.

His maternal grandfather was named Joseph Calderone and his maternal grandmother was born Betty L. Soens, daughter of Josephine and Arthur Soens. Based on these surnames, it would appear that Clint’s mother is of Italian and German descent.

So, his father is half Italian and half Hungarian, and his mother has Italian and German ancestry.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=45692737

levangelista36 August 17, 2012 at 1:49 am

So he should be a half Italian, a quarter Hungarian, and a quarter German if his mama has no other ancestry besides Italian and German?

follers August 17, 2012 at 2:33 am

Ah, there is a tree of Joseph Calderone on Ancestry.com. His parents, Filomena (Philomena) Paiano and Rocco Calderone, were both Italian. So there you go, Clint is 50% Italian through both grandfathers.

levangelista36 August 17, 2012 at 10:26 pm

Yes. I thought Clint might be of something else other than Italian. He’s American after all.

levangelista36 August 17, 2012 at 11:12 pm

90%? Jesus.

levangelista36 August 17, 2012 at 11:48 pm

Hayden is 50%.

DJ Pauly D is supposedly a 100%, but there are rumors that his mom is Portuguese, and I think he might’ve been born before 1980, but I’m not too sure.

Samantha Giancola is half Italian and half Greek.

Vinny from Jersey Shore has said he is 100% Italian and so has The Situation.

That’s all I can think of.

Oh wait, Gia Mantegna, Joe Mantegna’s daughter, is 50% Italian and 50% Czech, I believe. She was born 1990.

I can’t think of any who are full-blooded.

levangelista36 August 17, 2012 at 11:49 pm

The new Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, is 75% Italian. Her dad, Peter Culpo, is 100%. Her mom, Susan Curran, is 50% Italian and 50% Irish.

Ooooh, I think I might know one.

Stacie Orrico! I think she is 100%.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 12:01 am

I heard a rumor about Stacie being half German. I guess it’s true. Haha.

Hayden’s dad might not be 100% Italian. You should check up on that.

I guess Lea Michele is the most prominent actress born after 1980 with at least one parent that is full-blooded Italian. I can’t think of any others besides Hayden.

Oh, I think Rachel Bilson’s mom, Janice Santiago (?), is a 100%. Maybe . . .

You should check up on Nikki Reed, too.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 12:07 am

So, Jewish people’s intermarriage rates are around 50%, while Italian people’s intermarriage rates are around 90%.

So what about other white Americans? I mean, the ones who are not of Italian or Jewish background. Is it like a 100%? LOL. Because I can’t think of a single one who is full-blooded anything if we exclude Italians and Jews.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 12:19 am

I highly doubt the intermarriage rate for Irish descendants in the U.S. is lower than that of Italians.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 12:25 am

This is slightly off topic, but I read that Brittany Murphy’s dad, Angelo Bartoletti (?), was a mobster.

O_O

I might have messed up on her real last name, but I wonder why she decided to switch to Murphy when she got famous.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 12:35 am

It seems like Jewish people keep it together more than other white people. Because most of the white people I can think of that are of one ethnicity are Jewish. I can think of many Italians as well, but most of the ones who I am thinking of are older now and have spouses that are not of the same ethnicity as them.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 12:52 am

For example, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, John Turturro, Marisa Tomei, Joe Mantegna, Sophia Loren, Tony Danza, Alyssa Milano, Dean Martin, John Cazale, Ralph Macchio, etc. I know they are full Italian, but they’re offspring is most likely not.

Then, I know of a lot of ones like Frank Zappa. His dad was a Sicilian immigrant, while his mom was an American of Italian and French heritage.

levangelista36 August 18, 2012 at 1:11 am

Really? I thought John Cazale was just Italian for some reason. He looks very Italian. I had no idea his mom was Irish. Haha. R.I.P. Fredo Corleone <3

Frank Zappa's mom supposedly had French ancestry. That's what's been claimed, but I don't think Frank ever said that himself. He's only ever mentioned being Italian.

http://i50.tinypic.com/s1rkpl.png

These are from Frank Zappa’s biography.

His dad, Francis Vincent Zappa, was a Sicilian immigrant.

His mom, Rose Colimore, was a first-generation Italian-American, BUT her mom, Theresa, was of French and Italian ancestry even though she was born in Italy. So his mom does have French ancestry, although she is mostly Italian.

follers August 6, 2012 at 12:02 am

His paternal grandfather, Anthony Mauro, was the son of Italian immigrants. His paternal grandmother was born Gizella Szalay. According to the U.S. Census, 1930, all of Gizella’s grandparents were Hungarian.

His mother is name Rose – I’m not sure what her background is. But Clint is 1/4 Italian and 1/4 Hungarian.
