He looks equally Spanish and German.

neiltennant December 29, 2017 at 2:55 pm

yes he does

I was sure he is not pure German

neiltennant August 8, 2015 at 10:18 am

when he had his breakthrough i was sure that he cannot be pure german

because he has special eyes and face

He looks like a random white guy. What is special about his face?

Check7t May 30, 2015 at 4:52 pm

Yo, dude looks like a lighter pigmented Eric Bana, fo’ realz.

Also, picture, please. :-)

His father was actually born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 1937. That is interesting. Were his father’s family German Jews who moved to Brazil because of the Nazis?

andrew September 6, 2013 at 5:23 pm

possible, but in Brazil there has been a huge German emigration

follers September 6, 2013 at 5:26 pm

I know, but I found it interesting that presumably his father or his father’s family returned (?) to Germany at some point (after WWII?).

andrew September 6, 2013 at 5:28 pm

Brazil got rid of him

neiltennant December 29, 2017 at 2:56 pm

thats possible that he has Jewish roots

ashash December 29, 2017 at 11:39 pm

Most Spaniards have distant Sephardic ancestors. Who cares?

neiltennant January 6, 2018 at 2:49 pm


maybe you are on the wrong site :-))

,,who cares”
we care. Wake up ! We discuss here ethnicity of people

and you haven’t read the infos on the top because his father is German and his mother is Spanish

if he is Jewish then his father must have been Ashkenazi from Germany

it has nothing to do with his mother

ashash January 6, 2018 at 6:54 pm

His father could be Jewish, but I doubt it. I think he would have mentioned if he was by now instead of saying he is German.

ashash January 6, 2018 at 7:00 pm

But he could be like Jessica Biel and not know he has a Jewish great-grandparent.

Daniel is technically Latino like Gisele Bundchen.

follers May 15, 2016 at 1:59 pm

Well, his mother is Spanish, so of course he’s Latino. :-)

blue October 4, 2016 at 1:01 am

He is not latino, he was born in Europe, not latin américa, Giselle is latin because was born in Brasil, latin américa.

If he is latin because her mother, who speaks a language derived from latin, Monica Belluci, Marion Cotillard , Eva Green……for example and the rumanians are latin too.

labered with the europeans.

Did you know that a lot of english words have a latin origin?

lelo4 October 5, 2016 at 10:39 am

Eva Green is not ‘Latin’ though, she’s half Germanic (Swedish) half Middle Eastern (Jewish), she was just born in France.

neiltennant December 29, 2017 at 2:57 pm

so if a mouse who is born in brazil is a latino mouse

and a mouse born in europe cannot be latino mouse?

ashash January 6, 2018 at 8:52 am

@lelo4 I think the poster was saying that anyone who speaks a Latin language regardless of their ethnicity would be Latino or Latina (i.e. Eva Green’s mother is a Sephardic Jew who speaks French) if we were to go by those guidelines.

I think for them a Latino is only someone who was born and raised in Latin America.

neiltennant January 6, 2018 at 2:49 pm

No he is not a Latino and also not technically

he is a white European of Spanish + German descent

neiltennant December 29, 2017 at 2:56 pm


Giselle Bündchen is actually 100 percent pure german (her claims)

but he is spanish+ german

they are both not LATINOS or LATINA

ashash December 29, 2017 at 11:40 pm

What are you saying?

neiltennant December 30, 2017 at 2:54 am

READING helps !

or are you dumb ?

ashash December 30, 2017 at 6:51 am

That would be you.
