Emma Stone is an American actress. She won the Academy Award for Best Actress for La La Land (2016). She became well known for her roles in the films Superbad (2007) and The House Bunny (2008), as well as for having starred, since then, in the films Easy A (2010), The Help (2011), The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), Gangster Squad (2013), and Birdman (2014). Often seen with red hair, Stone is a natural blonde.

Emma’s paternal grandfather is of Swedish descent. Much of Emma’s other ancestry is German. She also has smaller amounts of English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and Swiss-German, ancestry. Her maternal grandparents were from families that have lived in the United States for many generations, specifically in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

In the film Aloha (2015), Emma played Allison Ng, a character who was mentioned as having a father who was of half Chinese and half Hawaiian descent, and a mother who was white, of Swedish descent. The casting received criticism, and the film’s director, Cameron Crowe, apologized. Emma is not of Asian heritage.

Emma’s paternal grandfather is Conrad Ostberg Stone (the son of Conrad August Stone and Florence Jeanette Ostberg). Emma’s grandfather Conrad was born in Pennsylvania. Emma’s great-grandfather Conrad was born in Pennsylvania, the son of Swedish immigrants, Carl/Charles Johan/John Sten, from Svenljunga, and Hilma Josephina Bengston. Emma’s great-grandmother Florence was born in Ohio, also to Swedish parents, Johan Gottfrid Östberg and Johanna Albertina/Altina Lindström. The surname “Sten” was changed to “Stone”.

Emma’s paternal grandmother is Jean Storts (the daughter of John H. Storts and Margaret Davies). Jean was born in Ohio.

Emma’s maternal grandfather is Donald Earl “Don” Yeager (the son of Irvin Sylvester Yeager and Esther Katharine Parks). Donald was born in Pennsylvania. Irvin was the son of Sylvester Noll Yeager and Mary/Mamie E. Burke. Esther was the daughter of Alfred Parks and Ann/Annie Gertrude Knuffman/Knufmann/Kauffman.

Emma’s maternal grandmother is Jean Louise Eiseman (the daughter of Cyrus Robert Iceman/Eiseman and Ruth Ann Henry). Jean was born in Pennsylvania. Cyrus was the son of Robert Patterson Eiceman and Esther Lurline Hoffman. Ruth was the daughter of Jackson Henry and Lydia Jane Turner.

Germanic-kelto-nordic. Of course that’s why she’s so beautiful with these striking blue-green eyes and porcelain skin.

Kimmel February 23, 2016 at 7:33 pm

Correction: “Stone was cast for a partly Asian role in the 2016 film Gods of Egypt. Her role as “Allison Ng”, a quarter Chinese Hawaiian received criticism to which the director of the movie apologized. Stone has no Asian heritage.

She was cast as ‘Allison Ng’ in Aloha (2015).

fuzzybear44 February 23, 2016 at 9:32 pm


You telling me that’s the only thing they’re apologizing for, about that wreck of a movie(Gods of Egypt)

Kimmel April 6, 2017 at 7:35 pm

Haha. Yeah, it never really should’ve been made in the fist place with such horrendous casting (and story..).

cwm85 November 24, 2015 at 7:52 am

About time she dump that tooth pic… Andrew Garfield….

Ajaxfan December 7, 2015 at 7:07 am

It’s about time this site dumps you.

cwm85 December 7, 2015 at 11:34 am

Lol that was weak. This site won’t dump me… but gladly you should dump yourself.

ArnyDiaz October 12, 2016 at 1:24 pm

That was even weaker, kys

gel September 9, 2015 at 4:01 am

Yes – strangely – she DOES look like she could come from any European country!

CiGwyrdd November 23, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Actually, summin up: she’s half Celtic, and her facial features make it clear. So she does look like she could come from just Western Europe

follers November 23, 2015 at 8:54 pm

I think Emma’s combined Swedish and German roots take up over 60% of her ancestry.

hesh123 September 9, 2015 at 3:13 am

Why is she always making that stupid face? I wish I could ask her

sparkles180 August 8, 2015 at 2:33 pm

I love her! She’s so pretty.

cwm85 July 30, 2015 at 3:25 pm

Always thought she was German or Swedish. I figured she or her family just changed her name from a typical Swedish last name to a more “American” sounding name like Stone.

follers May 29, 2015 at 11:44 am

Salon just linked to us! (“apparently of European ancestry”). We’ve made it.

Emma Stone’s character in Aloha is 1/4 Chinese and 1/4 Hawaiian. In San Andreas, also opening this weekend, Alexandra Daddario plays The Rock’s character’s daughter.

deadite July 24, 2014 at 9:04 pm

she is ugly as hell

WTF December 21, 2014 at 10:08 am

LMFAO I’m so glad someone else sees this. I never found her attractive, her eyes are weird looking and she looks like an alien.

mimi May 21, 2015 at 4:38 am

she’s not ugly she cute but looks 1000 times better as blonde.
she looks like she could be from any european country. She’d pass as russian / slav, scandinavian, german, italian, brit etc.

ihatemostpeople January 18, 2014 at 12:36 am

I always thought she was ugly. Don’t see what’s so great about her.

Europa May 23, 2014 at 8:44 am

It’s because you’re anti-white

shobohunter May 23, 2014 at 2:44 pm

I am not anti- white. white people are the one trolling in this website and making racist comments to blacks .. the black actress from 12 year of slave. go to her page and see. and yes
she is ugly. she look smelly and old. she shouldn’t be playing or cast as gwen in Spider-Man. that said random Brazilian guy..at theater .. not me.

Swedish pride world wide lol

JasonBaker October 16, 2013 at 8:39 am

I thought her natural hair color was red, but I read it was blond.

J.J. May 4, 2014 at 8:47 am

she’s known for having light hair naturally and I’ve heard it’s blonde too but judging from her roots when she’s dyed it a platinum/exceptionally light blonde and even red it most definitely does not look like blonde roots even if it were sandy, I’d say her hair is light brown naturally however some would define light brown as being an extremely dark blonde or hair that shows traces of ‘blondism’

spaceyaquarius August 7, 2013 at 8:12 pm

Pretty hot, but I always thought that she looked older than she really is. Gravel voice too that kinda gets on my last nerve. Imagine marrying her LOL. What a nightmare.

blackandwhitechic February 16, 2013 at 1:51 pm

I actually thought she was irish

me May 21, 2012 at 9:16 am

she looks like me! the only difference is that I’m naturally redhead, it’s obvious that she has Sami in her Swedish part.

eve March 4, 2013 at 1:42 pm

Why on earth would she have Sami? It’s very unlikely.

spaceyaquarius August 7, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Then email me a photo lol. Seriously though, you look that good?

Check7t December 12, 2014 at 7:13 pm

Doubt she has Sami ancestry, most ethnic Swedes do not.

eMI February 27, 2012 at 12:02 pm


Europa May 23, 2014 at 8:45 am

How on earth is that mongoloid influenced? You clearly don’t have any idea what you’re talking about

Di August 13, 2011 at 11:26 pm

Yeah, we have the same eyes. No doubt about the swedish part.

Di August 13, 2011 at 11:27 pm

and face form

Haley January 29, 2012 at 5:11 pm

I am part Scandinavian, my grandma was Danish. Swedish & Danish have the same similarties.

Erik April 22, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Yes and no. Danish are closer looking to Northern Germans. Its is the Swedish & Norwegians who have the most similarities.

khobi July 20, 2011 at 6:54 pm

what is anglo-american ?

Jess July 21, 2011 at 12:24 am

Anglo means English (like Anglo-Saxon, Anglo Norman, etc).

Robert January 29, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Thanks to historically discriminatory immigration policies, most of the people in the USA and other large countries with a white, English speaking majority are at least of partial English ancestry. Outside of the largest metro areas, there is a domminance in the population of people whose ancestry goes back to colonial days. And as you can see on http://www.dalhousielodge.org/Thesis/scotstonc.htm

According to the United States Historical Census Data Base (USHCDB) (2002), the ethnic populations in the American Colonies of 1775 were:
English 48.7 %
African 20.0 %
Scot-Irish 7.8 %
German 6.9 %
Scottish 6.6 %
Dutch 2.7 %
French 1.4 %
Swedish 0.6 %
Other 5.3 %
(NOTE: Combined, the total of Scots and Scot-Irish in this census is 14.4%.)

Erik April 22, 2012 at 2:20 pm

Today the Germans outnumber all British isles groups. Most English decendents have German ancestry. Despite the various Anti Germans of the past who wrote articles trying to lessen the amount of Germans that actualy arrived.

Also the Anglo term doesn’t really exist and is outdated. Studies have shown little Anglo influence in the British isles. The British infact came from Spanish celts not Anglos.

Alice November 8, 2012 at 6:50 am

If you include Irish in the British Isles then these populations outnumber Germans. Germans are the most numerous ethnicity, followed by Irish but I think English is a very understated ethnicity in the US.

Erik April 22, 2012 at 2:24 pm

A stupid and outdated term the British are not really Anglos. Study shows British came from Spain and had little Anglo influence. The myth that Brits are mostly of Anglo stock is one of the largest myths of the modern age. How anyone believed the British were Anglo is beyond me, the British are less fair than the other Germanic peoples (Dutch, Scandinavians, Northern Germans etc). The British have always looked more Southern Euro than they ever have Germanic. The fact that they came from Spain originaly shows just why they look so different from other Germancis


Alice November 8, 2012 at 6:46 am

Erik those genetic studies linking the British Isles to Spain are outdated. You need to check up on the latest genetic studies. The theory that people came from the Iberian refuge during the last ice age has been disproven. It was presumed because most Western European men (not just Spanish and British) had Y chromosome R1b that they were all from the same area. It has now been shown that R1b is too young to come from the ice age. Also the subclades that are in Spain are different than the ones in the British Isles. R1b is also common in the Netherlands and Germany. R1b is also common in Western Norway. There is a new study called The People of the British Isles Project which will reveal new and more up-to-date information on the genetics of Britain.
http://www.peopleofthebritishisles.org/ Britain’s population had multiple sources from neighbouring countries.

Alice November 8, 2012 at 7:49 am

Personally I would love to have a Spanish connection especially to Ireland which is where my origins are but this doesn’t seem to be the case as the subclade of R1b in Ireland and Spain are different.

Marc 2 November 8, 2012 at 10:00 am

However, way in which these people came to the north-west could pass through Iberia and general haplogrioup R1b M-269 decreases to the east. reaching the highest concentration in the Atlantic Coast.

Paul. June 28, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Chica June 28, 2011 at 5:42 am
