No way he’s fully English!

Get rekt.

He looks like a cross btw Ezra Miller and Corey Feldman! A lot of girls faun over him but personally I don’t find him a attractive. Shiloh Fernandez is the better looking version of him.

anen87 February 29, 2016 at 3:55 am

I just realized all the people I mention that resemble him are Jewish or part Jewish! xD

musicfangirl November 27, 2015 at 5:56 pm

Sorry but I find him very unattacive he looks like Napoleon Bonaparte he should play him a movie or something

slowdive December 29, 2015 at 1:15 am

He looks more like a Eurasian than Napoleon. However the pseudo-Asian looks pop up in Europeans occasionally and it’s mostly due to some Ancient North Eurasian heritage.

Devotion October 27, 2015 at 5:39 am

Looks like he has some Asian ancestry

hesh123 August 25, 2015 at 7:51 pm

he looks

neiltennant August 8, 2015 at 10:35 am

looks like JOSH RADNOR

xoxo August 6, 2015 at 4:52 am

No, he looks like an ugly Joaquin Phoenix.

neiltennant July 17, 2015 at 6:12 am

josh radnor

mony July 3, 2015 at 5:57 am

Ugly and strange

Check7t January 9, 2015 at 9:35 pm

He looks like Jimmy Fallon, who also looks part Asian.

Connerfromvine August 25, 2015 at 12:15 pm

Jimmy Fallon is Irish.

Your Mom August 9, 2014 at 7:48 pm

He Looks Creepy As Hell.

Angelalibohova April 11, 2014 at 11:55 pm

He looks to be part Asian, but he’s just English

reminds me of JOSH RADNOR who is jewish

he could also be a jewish

follers January 27, 2014 at 5:48 am

If you’re looking for Jews Ed Westwick resembles, Corey Feldman fits best.

AnonymousPerson December 25, 2013 at 6:40 am

He must have distant Asian ancestry.

roman2886 January 28, 2014 at 4:05 pm

It’s possible he could have Ukrainian ancestry lots of Ukrainians have a Asian look due too the Mongolian invasion.

Khazar February 6, 2014 at 4:38 pm

Ukrainians don’t have any more East Asian ancestry than English people do. Not to mention that the average Ukrainian looks whiter than him.

ethnic February 6, 2014 at 7:36 pm

Milla kunis?

J.J. February 6, 2014 at 7:41 pm

the mongoloid genes in Europeans are not necessarily a result of having east Asian ancestry, and mila kunis is not Ukrainian, she was born there but ethnically she’s jewish

scott February 7, 2014 at 3:47 am

Mila Kunis is just Jewish. she has no Ukraine http://ethnicelebs.com/mila-kunis

scott February 7, 2014 at 3:49 am

also Mila Kunis dont look asian at all

COOLGUY2012 November 27, 2013 at 9:55 pm

He looks english, but it seems he has a slight asian influence, i didn´t notice at first sight though.

James November 22, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Hey, well he may very well be part Asian as are many other “full blooded” whites.

When both Attila the Hun and Ghenghis Kahn’s armies ravaged and twice almost conquered all of Europe, there was a lot of racial mixing and though the Asian features may have been diluted down some by the fact that these are predominantly Caucasian areas, some traces probably show up here and there.

the punisher November 18, 2013 at 3:00 pm

he looks asian to me

JasonBaker November 18, 2013 at 2:42 pm

I don´t see a pseudo-Asian look at all. IMO he looks just White.

the punisher November 17, 2013 at 9:43 pm

I don’t know why this dude is hiding he’s Chinese side

Alice November 17, 2013 at 11:31 pm

It doesn’t look like he has any Chinese ancestry. I’ve seen people that have a Chinese grandparent and look completely European. He is just European. That picture just makes him look particularly dark.

follers November 18, 2013 at 12:08 am

He is English on both sides as far back as the eye can see.

He just looks like his parents.

andrew November 18, 2013 at 5:40 am

He has a pseudo-Asian look, not because of the “darkness” of the pic but from the facial features

Alice November 18, 2013 at 9:58 pm

Google some images of him. That is a much darker picture of him. His features remind me of Miranda Kerr. People are always seeing exotic features in people.

How many people of full European ancestry on this site are said to be hiding non-European ancestry? People have a very narrow and inaccurate view of what Europeans look like. Ed Westwick doesn’t even have epicanthic folds.

andrew November 19, 2013 at 6:30 am

he’s not dark, he just has Asian eyes.

J.J. November 16, 2013 at 11:06 pm

correction; his eyes are hazel (light brown) and his hair is light brown (brunet)

andrew September 25, 2013 at 5:41 pm

he has very distant eyes and in some pics you could see an Asian side but this guy is just English. And his hair are brown

Me myself and I November 21, 2012 at 11:24 am

he looks just white to me -_- you really annoy me with that American stereotypical way of thinking..!

IGK 3 April 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm

This guy look like he’s mix with chinese or other type of oriental decent. He just don’t want to say it. Thinks probably it might hurt his career. I don’t think so.

Amanda February 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm

He is a really great actor who is also very hot!

me February 9, 2012 at 11:52 am

he and Jessica Szohr were a great couple.

me January 25, 2012 at 9:05 pm

He and his mother seems to be chinese ancestry or something.

Annabelle November 26, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Elizabeth, what a rude thing to say!!!! I don’t know what race you are, but what if someone said everyone in your race was ugly? There are beautiful and not so beautiful people in every race. And btw beauty is not only on the outside it also comes from within you might want to think about that before making such a “UGLY comment. My husband is asian and he is not ugly, maybe in your opinion but you know what they say opinions are like a**es everyone has one.

Bryan November 25, 2011 at 7:17 am

I Think Elizabeth is Oriental.

Gigi November 24, 2011 at 5:58 pm

Yah, to that Elizabeth….Your Comments were CLEARLY Racist! Very Rude You Are. I am White American with a Scottish/Irish Heritage and I think Asians are very attractive, beautiful, intelligent people.

Hannah judd November 16, 2011 at 3:21 am

He may b adopted

Elizabeth October 27, 2011 at 12:43 pm

He could be Arab as well…. he looks it.

Tom October 30, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Yes he does look like he could be Arab too.

Elizabeth October 27, 2011 at 12:39 pm

I’m from England and there are loads of hot Indian guys and mixed bi racial Indian guys who are all gorgeous!

Helen October 30, 2011 at 5:08 pm

Your lucky then!
I love Indian men they are sooo hot like Sendhil.

meg September 27, 2011 at 3:46 pm

he looks british but his parents look white . He doesn’t really look asian to me , well hey thats just my opinion. i found this pic of his parents http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2008/startracks/080707/ed_westwick2.jpg , http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lklqmoCxgx1qap3afo1_500.jpg
they look pretty white to me

Dasher October 27, 2011 at 10:55 pm

He doesn’t look Indian either. The person posted a picture of his mother, father, brother, and him standing next to them. They all look and are white.

Tom October 28, 2011 at 7:03 pm

He does look Indian!
His parents don’t be he really does look Indian.

Helen October 30, 2011 at 5:08 pm

Yes Indian men are sooo hot.
He does look like he could be part Indian.

Silvia November 8, 2011 at 10:38 pm

Elizabeth your comments are filthy and disgusting and you are a racist.
By Oriental, I assume you mean Asian as in Chinese or Japanese. We don’t use the term Oriental in the USA.
Watch out there are over 1.3 billion Chinese people in the world right now!

Anonymous August 21, 2010 at 12:18 am

yea i heard he is part asian but idk your guess is as good as mine

Elizabeth November 24, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Ed doesn’t look anything like Orientals!
Ed is hot!
Orientals are not attractive in the slightest!
They all have dark yellow skin, slanted eyes, wide flat noses, and flat face’s with no bone structure whatsoever!
Even when they are mixed they look fully Oriental just look at Gok Wan! He is only half Oriental yet he looks fully Oriental, with dark yellow skin, a wide flat nose, slanted eyes and a flat face!
One thing’s for sure he isn’t Oriental at all whatsoever!

Heather July 7, 2010 at 3:19 pm

He’s very interesting-looking….definitely mixed. Maybe part Asian? I read somewhere that a couple hundred years ago Indian immigrants mixed with the British in England.

Serpent September 27, 2011 at 10:48 pm

He damn sure does not look Indian.

Elizabeth October 27, 2011 at 12:36 pm

He damn sure DOES look Indian!
He damn sure doesn’t look Oriental in the slightest at all though…..

Dasher October 28, 2011 at 7:28 pm

He really doesn’t look Indian. I’m not seeing it either so I don’t know how that poster is an idiot.

Elizabeth October 27, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Yea I can see it I guess, there’s a lot of half Indian half White people in this Country, and he certainly looks swarthy, dark and exotic handsome like them! (A bit like Jimi Mistry) I can see it!
Yes perhaps you’re right and he is part Indian!

Sarah October 30, 2011 at 5:02 pm

He does indeed look he has some Indian genes.
I know a very good looking Indian guy that looks just like him.
