Hayden Panettiere

by ethnic on July 23, 2008

Birth Name: Hayden Leslie Panettiere

Place of Birth: Palisades, New York, U.S.

Date of Birth: August 21, 1989

Ethnicity: Italian (one half), as well as German and English

Hayden Panettiere is an American actress, singer, model, and activist. She is known for starring in the series Heroes as Claire Bennet.

She is the daughter of Alan Panettiere and Lesley R. Vogel, an actress. Her brother is actor Jansen Panettiere. She has a daughter with her fiancé, Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

Both of Hayden’s parents are of half Italian descent (her father’s father and her mother’s mother). Her other roots include German and English. Her surname, Panettiere, is pronounced Pan-Uh-Tee-Air-Ee, and means “baker” in Italian. She has a tattoo of the Italian words Vivere senza rimipianti on her left flank. It means “To live without regrets”, although the third word should be spelled rimpianti.

Hayden has said:

My mom is from Kentucky and my [paternal] grandmother is from Corpus Christi, so I had a better understanding of the South than the average person moving from New York. At my core, this is the kind of person I am and want to be. I like being in a place where people appreciate the little things and don’t need a lot of stuff to be happy. You can put a group of Southerners in any scenario and they’ll have a good time.

Hayden’s paternal grandfather is Dominick N. Panettiere (the son of Donato/Daniel Panettieri/Panettiere and Jacomina/Jaicomina Signorile). Dominick was born in New York, to Italian parents. Donato was born in Altamura, Bari, the son of Carlo Panettieri and Leonarda Oliva.

Hayden’s paternal grandmother is Nann Nix Boland (the daughter of Joseph Edmond Boland and Elva Irene Cavnor/Cavnar). Joseph was the son of David Edmond Boland and Margaret May/Mae/Maye “Maggie” Fondren.

Hayden’s maternal grandfather is John Leslie Vogel (the son of John Raymond Vogel and Elizabeth Francis Long). Hayden’s great-grandfather John was the son of John J. Vogel and Anna F. Miller, who were both the children of German parents. Hayden’s great-grandmother Elizabeth was the daughter of Leslie Preston Long and Hulda Frances Bessie Wilson, who had English ancestry.

Hayden’s maternal grandmother is Eunice “Tam” B. Latty (the daughter of Salvino/Salvin Frank Latty and Rose/Rosyln L. Shaw). Eunice was born in Maine, to Italian parents. Rose was the daughter of Joseph Shaw and Maria/Mary Pagoni.

She has an Italian “shape” to her face (which I cannot put a finger on), but looks overall German/Celtic.

Kimmel February 13, 2016 at 6:07 pm

She must have some Sicilian blood in her, because she looked ‘Black’ as a child. Just look at the pictures of her on Ally Mcbeal in the 90’s.

Greyface April 11, 2016 at 2:19 pm

nonsensical comment, Sicilian is not black

fuzzybear44 April 11, 2016 at 11:47 pm

@Greyface

Quote(Sicilian is not black)

Well it’s true their not black in color. However going by their Dna results that they have put on line, there are a number on them who have (North African, East African as well as Sub-Saharan African) ancestry all within the last 200 years

Greyface April 12, 2016 at 3:23 am

she is a rapper and is related to obama I know that pizza is actually soul food and berbers love basketball berbers are jive brothers
all white people are black

neiltennant July 26, 2017 at 8:36 am

indeed nonsense comment

i looked at old child photos of her and she was blonde blue eyed girl with pale skin

why the hell people see black in those pics ?

J420 April 28, 2016 at 9:01 pm

I swear this site is full of trolls and simple minded idiots. She never looked Black, not even as a child.

neiltennant October 12, 2015 at 10:10 am

hmm i think some can recognize those half italian half german half british people

like megyn kelly and kaley cuoko

Freerk September 28, 2015 at 4:54 pm

Surely because she is blond … the first (and sometimes the only) thing that people see. But her face is definitely Italian, and there are also many blond Italians, especially in the north of Italy. (The Germanic Ostrogoths and Langobards once settled there.)

ashash September 27, 2015 at 3:19 am

Don’t understand why people say she looks German. She is 3/4 Italian.

labird August 30, 2015 at 8:44 am

But Latty and Shaw are English surnames

andrew August 30, 2015 at 5:43 pm

Bob Dylan and Woody Allen too. Census says they were born in Italy. Some anglicisation happened.

black plague September 1, 2014 at 8:31 pm

I read somewhere that she gave a speech in the
middle of the Ucranian Revolution,is it true?I’d
like to know what she said.Nothing against Putin
I hope.He’s a dangerous man,even Obama is very
very very afraid of him.

black plague September 1, 2014 at 7:14 pm

Beautiful woman

ihatemostpeople June 15, 2014 at 3:36 am

She looks like a White version of Kat Graham.

Gurrl February 5, 2014 at 10:18 am

I’m trying to see the German but she looks just Italian to me, but then again that’s what she is mostly. Ignore her colouring people, she looks more Italiano than anything.

roman2886 February 3, 2014 at 4:49 pm

She is the same mix as Leonardo Dicaprio he is Italian German and Russian but like her he looks very German he doesn’t have the big nose like Italian she defiantly looks very German she doesn’t look Italian she doesn’t have the big nose like the Italians i thought she would have looked more Italian than German since the Italians have stronger genes Germans have weak genes.

andrew February 3, 2014 at 5:50 pm

wtf is the “Italian big nose” stuff i cant get it

andrew February 3, 2014 at 5:55 pm
Lateralus June 23, 2015 at 5:50 am

“big nose like italian”…WTF? I’m italian and I don’t have a big nose. It’s like saying every american has a big belly

Sarsari87 September 24, 2015 at 4:00 am

If you think all italians have big or long noses you’re an idiot and ignorant too.

hesh123 September 24, 2015 at 10:57 am

Wtf is he “ignoring” Italians DO have big noses, I should know as I am Italian myself and I have a big nose, my mother has a big nose and my brother has a big nose.

andrew September 25, 2015 at 5:50 am

a lot of US Presidents had huge noses too. Example

http://ethnicelebs.com/william-henry-harrison

mony May 5, 2016 at 1:21 pm

Not cause all your family has ugly big noses means all italians have big noses!!!! You stupid!

Brigzzz98 January 19, 2014 at 6:13 am

Her blonde hair makes her look more german she doesn’t have the roman nose tho

andrew January 19, 2014 at 7:54 am

German women are taller, more robust, have wide jaws. Whats “roman nose” btw?

AnonymousPerson December 23, 2013 at 2:12 am

When she was younger she looked like she was part Black.

eldiablo1313 January 9, 2014 at 6:14 pm

No, it was just her hair that made her look sort of biracial (e.g. Remember the Titans) She looks both Italian and German to me. Only her brother came out more Italian than her.

andrew August 23, 2013 at 4:07 pm
beautifulsols July 4, 2013 at 12:18 am

SHE LOOKS LIKE A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING !! WHAT DOES IT MATTER YOU DONT HAVE TO LOOK A CERTAIN WAY TO BE SOMETHING SHE IS WHAT SHE IS STOP DEBATING IT AND MAKING ALL THESE RACISTS STEREOTYPES I SAW AN ISLANDER THAT LOOKED LIKE HER AN ASIAN,EU,AFRICAN,INDIAN,AMERICAN(ALL RACES),AUSTRALIAN,HAWAIIAN,JAMAICAN,ALL RACES LOOK LIKE HER SO ARE THEY LESS OF WHAT THEY ARE TOO ?NOPE!

neiltennant May 11, 2013 at 11:30 am

only her name is italian

reminds me of Kaley cuoko the actor of big bang theory
who also has italian roots

BellaTrainer December 20, 2012 at 11:52 pm

She has the look of an Italian American but with German coloring.

nnnnn December 20, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Bella Trainer and mariian: “colouring”, “blond hair”
Have you no idea, that most blond women have coloured
hair?

mariian93 November 22, 2012 at 11:51 am

Her race is WHITE so she looks WHITE, because WHITE people aren’t just those who has blue eyes and blond hair, it’s just a term which refer people from all european countrys and ex-soviet union. Despite of the typical facial traits of every european country they are all white and in all european countrys you can find people from black hair and brown eyes to blond almost white hair and blue eyes, in north and east europe is more common but they are ALL white.

rickyflo March 11, 2013 at 6:01 pm

yep some of the race caucasian theory proves this, but do mind that some of europe is not always white white, yet other things. the majority is white in europe and that is correct but there are other races in Europe…

DK1x March 24, 2013 at 11:31 am

That’s because.

anisamae November 22, 2012 at 1:39 am

Can’t believe I only found out recently that she was Italian. I’d always thought that she was Anglo-American! I’m so silly as I’ve been ignoring the fact that her last name is PANETTIERE for so long. However, her brother Jansen is extremely Italian looking! It’ so amazing how they look very alike but look like a different race from another (my opinion)

rickyflo March 11, 2013 at 6:06 pm

Dude you are stupid and I rarely say those words, but yeah you are stupid. Italian versus German are not races, yet they are heritages and ethnicities. We mix up the word all the time for the German race and the Italian race for German Heritage, Italian Heritage. Caucasian is a race, and there is a theory, not a hypothesis that proves that such. Yeah they are both different but by culture and A german first proved the factor of race by looking at skulls of similar measurements. Even genetics came later and proved such. However, who cares if she is anglo or not. We should and would love the human race to bring creativity and ideas.

mony May 5, 2016 at 1:27 pm

Italians and germans belong to the same race!!! How many ignorant people in this site!!!

SmartAss October 7, 2012 at 6:12 am

She looks neither Italian nor German! She looks European!!! From Sweden to Italy and from Spain to Russia you will in every country girl’s they look like her

Tyrone October 22, 2012 at 10:59 pm

So that means she does look like an Italian or a German then???

ichbinich November 17, 2012 at 1:30 pm

To Tyrone
Do you know that Italy and Germany are European countrys?

COOLGUY2012 December 30, 2012 at 11:30 am

Germans and italians look alike, so i think she looks both.

nnnnn March 14, 2013 at 1:20 am

Look alike, but italians are definitely more “dark”,
especially south italians.

She’s a beautiful woman and really “petit woman”,
opposite to Kim K. Wladimir Klitschko is a lucky man
(they should be together again)

Sarsari87 September 24, 2015 at 4:12 am

That’s just an idiotic stereotype, you can find all kind in Italy.

Hope Moretti September 27, 2012 at 1:42 am

She looks like a typical italian girl with some german blood

christianz June 15, 2012 at 6:05 am

you americans are sometimes very stupid

of course there are blonde and blue eyed italians ,

she looks european with a touch of mediterrannian influence

her moms name VOGEL sounds german and many Jewish emigrants have this name

levangelista36 June 16, 2012 at 8:59 am

you’re a bit stupid yourself. mediterraneans are European.

anyway, elisabeth hasselbeck is also of italian and polish descent. her real name is elisabeth del padre filarski

levangelista36 June 16, 2012 at 9:00 am

btw vogel is german surname

Me myself and I November 18, 2012 at 4:43 am

Vogel is a German surname.

Rob June 15, 2012 at 12:15 am

She’s got German/other european genetics too. No way is she of 100 % Italian ancestry. He moms name is Vogel which yes sounds german.

francescorivi May 21, 2012 at 6:06 am

whats wrong with her looking italian?! i’m italian, born and raised in Naples. there are plenty of girls who look just like her here. i mean, look at her face, how could you not tell shesnt italian? even if your stereotyped american minds cant help to link being italian with fair features… just look at her face.

Frances December 8, 2013 at 10:50 pm

Exactly. Most Americans here are completely ignorant and moronic when it comes to labelling Italians… It’s all based on their stereotypes and the fact that none of them have ever left their small towns. If any of these goofs ever went to Italy or ever even left their states they’d smarten up.

Meg123 May 18, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Even with the blonde hair and green eyes she’s still very Italian looking imo.

COOLGUY2012 September 23, 2012 at 8:05 pm

LOL. ITALIANS ARE ONE OF THE WHITEST EUROPEANS (IN ANCIENT TIMES, THEY WERE THE LIGHEST, BECAUSE OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE).

yaris1011 May 17, 2012 at 7:50 pm

obviously americans never saw a real italians.\

FIRST OF ALL ITALIANS ARE NOT A RACE BUT AN ETHNICITY, AND ALL EUROPEANS ARE NOT A RACE BUT PART OF THE WHITE CAUCASIAN GROUP.

NOW GO TO CHECK ON THE WEB THIS LINK ABOUT ANTHROPOLOGY “RACIAL REALITY ITALIANS” AND NOW GO TO CHECK ON THE WEB “WHITE AMERICANS WIKIPEDIA” . ITALIANS ARE THE FOURTH LARGEST EUROPEAN WHITE ANCESTRY IN AMERICA AND IS ONLY THANKS TO ITALIANS,GERMANS,BRITISH AND OTHER EUROPEAN PEOPLE THAT SOME AMERICANS ARE CONSIDERED WHITE.
90 % OF WHAT YOU CALL “ITALIANS” IN AMERICA ARE FROM SICILY, SICILY IS AN ISLAND LIKE HAWAII IN USA THAT BECAME PART OF ITALY 150 YEARS AGO. ALL THIS PEOPLE BELOW HAVE AN ITALIAN ANCESTRY BY MOM,DAD OR BOTH PARENTS: PARIS HILTON, HAYDEN PANETTIERE, JOHN TRAVOLTA,HULK HOGAN,NICOLAS CAGE,LEONARDO DI CAPRIO,LADY GAGA,LINDSAY LOHAN, BRADLEY COOPERS.

Sarsari87 September 24, 2015 at 4:15 am

I wanted to say ‘DITTO’ to all you said, but the last part LOL.. Sicily is an island like Hawaii? What do you mean?
Do you know there are a lot of very pale or blue-eyed sicilians?

Blonde Frizzles May 13, 2012 at 8:51 am

wow she is soooo beautiful! I’m very Italian and have similar coloring to her, and being Italian is white. It really is, but no matter what I say, I can’t change what other people think.

IGK 3 April 4, 2012 at 10:08 pm

ITALIANS ARE NOT WHITE. Hayden penettiere is also german and french thats why she looks white. I would say mostlt german.

yaris1011 May 17, 2012 at 7:58 pm

IGK 3 about history, do you know that Hitler remained impressed by Mussolini and Fascist Italy for many years in spite of resentments towards Italy by other Nazis and resentments by Italian Fascists towards Germany. During the period of positive outlook towards Fascist Italy, Hitler became an Italophile.[84] Hitler like Mussolini profoundly admired Ancient Rome, and repeatedly mentioned it in Mein Kampf as being a model for Germany.[85] In particular, Hitler admired ancient Rome’s authoritarian culture, imperialism, town planning, and architecture, which were incorporated by the Nazis.[86] Hitler considered the ancient Romans to have been a master race.[86] Hitler believed that northern Italians were members of the Aryan race.[91]

“Hitler believed that northern Italians were members of the Aryan race.[91]” is from 5 paragraphs below.

do you also know that actually americans aren’t pure white? america border with mexico while italy with austria,slovenia,switzerland and france. america is the most mixed place in the world, america is also the country in the world with the less % of natural blonde and high % of interracial marriage compared italy,germany, and most of the eu countries.
now go to check “racial reality white american” on yahoo. we know in europe that americans are blech their hair blonde and many of you are not real blonde such marylin monroe,pamela anderson and nicol richie.lol and about kim basinher and cameron diaz that have both a cherokee ancestry indian. in europe,north italy,germany,etc etc americans are not viewed pure white
also do you know that the roman empire ruled the world for 1000 years, the roman conquered uk,germany,france,austria,hollande,switzerland, etc etc many european carry a roman ancestry. now go to check on the web “germans rediscover their roman ancestry”. you must to be that classic silly person that never left his yars and are envy of italians. now go to in youtube and check this north italian people and compared them to yourself, i am sure that you will feel inferior again “federica fontana, ilary blasi, mara venier, alessia marcuzzi, aren;t they white? lol now go to check on the web “south tyrol wikipedia” or courmayeur wikipedia” or milan lombardy”. italy invented the fascism in the world, so is funny to hear somebody like you to try to discredit white italian,lol

Angel Syrene April 4, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Lopac, it’s about time you get a life.

BIG PAC March 17, 2012 at 9:46 pm

I’m just saying the true.

Roger Is My Lover March 16, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Her hair is naturally a curly, golden blonde. She looks better with curly hair.

http://www.hotflick.net/flicks/2004_Raising_Helen/004RHL_Hayden_Panettier_015.jpg

It gives her more character.

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:03 pm

What? I think curly hair is beautiful, and Hayden’s hair looks beautiful in its natural state.

BIG PAC March 17, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Responding to yourself again.

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:09 pm

I wasn’t responding to myself. I was saying that I think curly hair is beautiful and that Hayden’s hair looks beautiful in its natural state.

BIG PAC March 17, 2012 at 3:11 pm

yeah right. take your pills

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:12 pm

You should take yours, and perhaps see a counselor about why you are obsessed with Southern Europeans and your racist tendencies.

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Take yours, and see someone about those racist tendencies of yours.

JENNIFER ANISTON IS NOT WHITE March 14, 2012 at 6:59 pm

SHE’S NOT WHITE. SHE’S ITALIAN.

Sarsari87 September 24, 2015 at 4:19 am

LOL please tell me: if italians aren’t white what are they?

12 February 18, 2012 at 3:18 pm

Many Italians have blond hair and blue eyes..

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Most of them are dark-haired and dark-eyed, but a few are light naturally.

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:06 pm
Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:06 pm

You can see that his skin is a bit darker. His hair and eyes are a bit darker as well.

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:07 pm

But apparently he was arrested for assaulting Hayden’s mother.

:(

Elle February 8, 2012 at 3:21 am

i think she probably has some german in her too, her mums surname was Vogel which is very german and she looks quite german too :)

Aria February 6, 2012 at 9:53 pm

To me, her features such as her nose look Italian, while hair and eyes colours look German. Very pretty!

storm January 28, 2012 at 10:21 pm

she is biracial

P January 19, 2012 at 1:46 pm

absolutely stunning .. very italian looking

and joel, my great grandfather was an italian immigrant with blonde hair, it is not unusual at all.

sami January 25, 2012 at 5:38 pm

Maybe your great grandfather was but generally Italians are dark haired and more olive complexions compared to Hayden!

Verita March 6, 2012 at 12:50 pm

You obviously are not Italian and have never visited Italy. Italians are NOT generally dark haired and olive skinned. You have been watching too many movies and buying into the false stereotypes. We’re also not gangsters, lol! I am 100% Northern Italian background, fair skinned, dark blond with dark eyes. My father is blue eyed and all my relatives in Italy are light skinned and hair with blue eyes. Mostly Southern Italians immigrated to the U.S., and many of them do tend to be darker than Northerners, However, there are MANY blonde, blue eyed Southern Italians and Sicilians as well.

Please don’t speak when you don’t know what you’re talking about.

Lea March 15, 2012 at 3:43 am

PPl on here use stereotypes as reference to race,And the ppl they see in movies.They will never travel and see the diversity of the world.No matter it do not matter what these ppl think any way.

Joel January 15, 2012 at 6:16 pm

I think people are being throw because of her Blonde hair. Actually her natural color more of a brown color.

Lopac Is My RACIST Lover March 17, 2012 at 3:08 pm

Her hair is naturally curly and it’s a golden/dirty blonde.

esther January 14, 2012 at 6:55 am

ITALY IS IN EUROPE AND PEOPLE FROM ITALY ARE WHITE. The end of story.

Marisol January 10, 2012 at 7:53 pm

I always tbought they were latin.

Mac January 10, 2012 at 6:28 pm

LOL Italians are obviously caucasian, they’re European! Even Middle Easterners and North Africans are! Italians are obviously white, they aren’t Black or Asian now are they ???

his father is italian (alan panettiere emigrated from south italy) then she have a tattoo with an italian words on the arms, then in many articles they say that the mother could be german and not french

Dio November 23, 2010 at 9:08 am

People are so dumb, the whole North/South “Blonde” thing is an idiotic racist statement that was promoted by Nordicist, if you actualy look at the statistics there are no more blondes and red heads in the north than there are in the South. One of the miss Italy had red hair, and the “Nordic” contribution to Italy apparently was not enough to make a huge dent. The majority are still the same height, and still have a totally different bone structure from a Nordic, people don’t just invade a country and have sex with the entire population otherwise everyone in America would be the same thing by now, Italians are and have always been mixed with several Indo-European people, Even the Romans were mixed with several Indo-European people including Greeks they have never been pure. So seeing Blonde hair is not surprising when your ethnic group is already mixed with a shitload of “Caucasian Groups”. Blonde hair is as “Rare” in England as it is Italy.

Just because a people have mostly “Dark hair” does not mean they cannot have blonde hair and still be full Italian, they are Caucasian afterall the gene is still there. News flash dark hair is the majority even in the Nordic countries like Sweden & Finland, its not a nation full of blondes, more blondes? yes, but far from being completely blonde. If you look at Hayden’s figure and skull shape its similiar to that of the mediterranean people, Small, nordics bone shape would be longer in form. You cannot tell someone’s race by their hair color, race goes far deeper than that. Just because someone has blonde hair does not change their bone structure, you can have blonde hair and still have a mediterranean skull shape.

1 america is the country with less % of natural blonde in the world compared europe and australia

1 while southern italian are mediterranean

north italians are alpine, then in north italy there is more blonde than any states in america. try to check this cities in north italy
south tyrol,valle d’aosta,treviso,trieste,brescia,bolzano,cremona,milan,veneto,ligury,brianza,and many other city in the north

then the most common hair and eye color in all europe is dark brown and black and the only two place with the majority of blonde are finland and russia.

also scandinavian aren’t pure at all they are all descent (back roots) from mongrel and every person that has a little knowledge about anthropology know that.

then the roman empire (italy) conquered and slaved uk for 350 years,austria for 400 years,part of germany,france,belgium,they made switzerland, and the rest the rest of europe, so outside scandinavia every country in europe have a big chance to carry an ancestry from the roman like it or not.
then the romans was considered nordic pure race at the time (check augustus emperor blonde and blue eyes and many others roman figure)
then sorry but america has the less % of scandinavian ancestry on the people

“white american are made by germans,british,italian,french,irish,polish,……..
germans are the largest european ancestry in usa,than british,than irish,than italian,than french,……….

then the term caucasian are refereed to every european person
so every country inside europe is white caucasian, there are only three groups in the world caucasian,mongrel and negroid.

than italy was divided until 150 years ago and didn’t even exist i
north italy is way different than south and central italy by physical looks of the people,genetic,history,language,cuisine and culture

Don’t forget that the term “white” has nothing to do with skin color, but everything to do with geography. According to the US gov., anyone from Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa must mark the box “white” to ID themselves. That means you can have a black man who is from North Africa that must mark the box “white” because he is from North Africa. Anytime someone tells me that they are “white” I always look at them and say, “thanks for giving me a wide geography on where your ancestor’s might have come from, but what cultures make up you?”

Any darker skinned Southern European person is showing their Arabic heritage. The Moors invaded Spain in 711 and were finally kicked out by Queen Isabella in 1492. Though, I do agree with you on the blonde hair. That is a more typical Scandinavian trait and is believed to have been brought to Britain, Scotland, and Ireland via the Anglo-Saxons (from a place we now call Denmark) as well as the Vikings. Both Nordic origins.

Long rant about nothing. Hayden Panettiere has a mixed European ancestry (like most Americans) and shouldn’t be used as an example of any ethnicity.

Acadiana January 11, 2012 at 2:46 am

Her parents are actually both Italian. So she does not have a mixed European ethnicity.

Johanna September 4, 2010 at 5:56 pm

She looks very Italian to me, more northern Italian. She definetly has the body of a northern Italian. I see no French in her at all and she says she is Italian, never mentioned French.

Sarsari87 September 24, 2015 at 4:28 am

Sure, because sourtnern italians have different shapes than northens?? What are you saying? Does German, England and France also apply to your theory or is it only a stereotype for Italy?

Anonymous May 11, 2010 at 4:33 pm

She’s blonde, but either way she looks mediterranean.
Very beautiful.

jenny May 2, 2011 at 7:43 pm

while southern italian are mediterranean, can you see the difference between hayden panettiere and demi moore? who looks more mediterranean? she doesn’t look at all mediterranean.
