She looks Italian or Spanish. She looks 100% Mediterranean.

andrew May 8, 2016 at 6:23 am

She could be a Cuban or Puerto Rican woman with Spanish and African ancestry. She looks somewhat Mediterranean but from some features like her eyes you can tell she’s mixed.

Hill August 1, 2017 at 9:41 am

phaedra? You’re contradicting yourself. ooooh. LOL.

slowdive February 5, 2016 at 10:28 pm

She looks for her age cause dem hidden black genes.

neiltennant February 27, 2017 at 8:05 am

be careful

she is 54 and looks like 35 but who knows what she has done in the fields of plastic surgery

malabo girl October 29, 2015 at 5:53 pm

sshe don t look like a mulatto woman , maybe her dad was a 1/4 , because she look white

slowdive December 11, 2015 at 4:02 pm
Capricious October 8, 2015 at 5:58 am

Just by looking at that photo alone I’d say that she is Greek, Maltese or Near Eastern.

After all, anyway, most people who have a half Germanic/Celtic and Indian or African ancestry would look Middle Eastern or Southern European.

neiltennant July 31, 2015 at 6:04 am

look at the credits of her roles in the last 30 years

she mostly played white roles and a lot of roles of jewish women

why ?

because hollywood tends to think that jews are more dark than the average anglo-american

but thats not right

names like SUSAN BERNSTEIN

RACHEL BERFIELD etc.

she definitely does not look like the average african american but also not like the typical anglo american

therefore its obvious why she does not play roles of AMY JOHANNSON or STACY GALLAGAN etc

you know what i mean ?

fuzzybear44 August 1, 2015 at 10:23 pm

@neiltennant

IDK about, many of the roles I’ve seen her in, she played what she is, mixed. The L word, for 5 yrs she played a mixed blood.The Prophecy II ,Devil in a Blue Dress ,Feast of All Saints ,A House Divided. All of these within the last 30yrs. I don’t think her other roles actually mention what her backgrounds were. Could be you were just assuming she was playing white.

xoxo July 30, 2015 at 10:31 pm

Don’t know what her dad looks like, but she looks white.

neiltennant August 2, 2015 at 3:53 am

http://www.arogundade.com/Resources/jennifer-beals-p.jpeg

that was her father
Not sure if he was mixed or not. He had a special nose uncommon for african americans think he may have been mixed !

http://www.arogundade.com/Resources/black-actor-jenn.jpeg

that was the poster for the movie.
No discussion here. She looked totally BIRACIAL. i cannot understand why people thought 1983 she may been white
Latina ? Yes but WHite no !

fuzzybear44 October 8, 2015 at 9:55 pm

@nei

I don’t. Know if her father is mixed or not, but that type of nose is not uncommon to African American. HAlf my extended. Family has a caucasoid phenotype. Plus I ‘ve seen many other black people with those noses. The only thing you can say, is that it wasn’t. Common in the ones you’ve. Seen

neiltennant July 17, 2015 at 6:30 am

she looks like the wife of u2s the edge

andrew July 31, 2015 at 6:12 am

maybe a bit. Morleigh Steinberg is Jewish though.

neiltennant July 31, 2015 at 6:34 am

yes i know that she is jewish

they can be sisters

i want to say, that beals can pass for a special white

neiltennant July 13, 2015 at 11:46 am

in a biopic about the FLASHDANCE movie she said that at that time of her fame nobody asked her about her ethnicity and therefore she was silent

but really she did not look like a mixed person

she could pass for a italian

California July 12, 2015 at 12:20 am

Come on, this woman could never pass as white. She looks too ethnic, maybe not black but she looks VERY Hispanic.

lanadelrey October 28, 2015 at 7:26 pm

Hahahaha hispanic? are you serious? I have seen her acting on tv shows and she passes 100% white, in this picture she looks horrible not even looks like her… don’t speak if you are just seeing a pic.

cwm85 October 28, 2015 at 8:33 pm

Hispanic is not a race but a person who’s origins are from spain.

Multiethnicchick June 16, 2015 at 2:38 pm

Her father is probably mixed. African American is an ethnicity and it includes mixed people. she’s probably mostly white

WTF October 11, 2014 at 3:50 am

She could fool a lot of people into thinking she was Italian if she wanted… She’s a white-passing mulatto. I remember when everyone thought this trick was white.

Check7t October 14, 2014 at 10:13 pm

She could pass as more than just Italian tbh.

Princess June 14, 2014 at 2:10 am

She looks White.

neiltennant July 13, 2015 at 11:45 am

she looks either latina or maybe from southern europe

kiwi7777 November 18, 2013 at 11:46 am

What’s funny is she denied her father (who passed away when she was little) to achieve an acting career yet she hasn’t really been in anything successful after Flashdance and now she wants to tell everybody her father was black when her fame decreased. Whether she looks mix or not she still hid who she was. Thank God for Mariah Carey at least she was brave enough to tell everyone who she was regardless of the backlash.

fuzzybear44 November 19, 2013 at 5:25 am

@kiwi7777

(to achieve an acting career yet she hasn’t really been in anything successful after Flashdance)

What about the (L Word)?Also through her career,she’s played a mixed-blooded person often.While to me,it was Mariah who choose to be more ambiguous about her ethnicity. Also,what’s so brave about telling people you’re part black?(especially when it was easy to tell)

fuzzybear44 November 19, 2013 at 5:27 am

Correction:chose

mids July 8, 2012 at 5:09 pm

She’s looks about as mixed as kim jong il

Princess June 14, 2014 at 2:10 am
mids July 8, 2012 at 5:08 pm

I’m willing to bet that her father is mixed as well. Problem is that mixed people are considered black so a mixed person and a white person could reproduce and still end up with a quarter mixed and yet they would be considered black or mixed because for some reason their mixed parent is considered black, ugh

jttaino January 11, 2013 at 6:59 pm

thats becuase of bigoted stupid people there is no such thing as “race” geneticists have proven that(read my profile). i agree she’s probaly a quater “black” if that, if she doesn’t look black why should she call herself that this applies to other people as well.

fuzzybear44 November 19, 2013 at 5:46 am

@jttaino

( i agree she’s probaly a quater “black” if that)

While i don’t know her percentage,I can tell you her dad didn’t have to be half black,for her to look like that

midori29 December 3, 2014 at 11:23 am

@@mixed there are many Brazilians and Venezuela ns who have a coal black parent that come out looking like Jennifer Beals, her dad does not have to be mixed at all. Heck some look lighter and whiter than Jennifer. You have not seen alot of mixtures. Im from South America , ive seen nearly every racial combination.

Christian March 23, 2012 at 9:50 am

hmm very strange

in the 80s and especially 1983 when the movie came out people thought she were white

and it was something she hid that she is actually half black

in the 80s in a time in which blacks on mtv and in movies where were, she was a phenomenon

WTF October 11, 2014 at 4:54 am

She hid her black ancestry so she could become a “star”. What’s funny is, she didn’t have much a career after that shitty dance movie. She’s just another washed up has-been; d-list actress with a failure of a career. Coming out as black might have actually helped her career…..

SHE IS BLACK

Cohen is also of Irish origin and a variant of Coyne, Kilcoyne.

Alice February 20, 2012 at 9:38 pm

I’ve placed this comment in the wrong place. I meant to put it in the section about whether the name is Jewish. It is a Jewish name but it is also an Irish name. The 2 sources are completely unrelated.

Alice February 20, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Another name which could be Jewish or Irish is Levy.

ONLY ANGLO-SAXONS ARE WHITE March 13, 2012 at 10:17 pm

She is mulatto.

Angel Syrene March 13, 2012 at 9:59 pm

She is not black,she is mixed,Irish,Jewish and Black

Angel Syrene March 13, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Alice:Cohen is Never Irish surname,Cohen and Levy is 100% Jewish

Alice March 23, 2012 at 6:30 am

Cohen and Levy are also Irish names. Cohen can be of Irish, Jewish or German origin.
http://www.houseofnames.com/cohen-family-crest
Levy in Ireland is a variant of Leavey.

Alice March 23, 2012 at 6:32 am

This interesting name, with variant forms (Mac)Leavy, Leavey and LEVY, is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic Irish name Mac Con Sleibhe.

You trippin. Cohen ain’t no Irish name.

http://www.surnamedb.com/Surname/cohen

I love you, Roger Scientist March 23, 2012 at 9:05 am

Obviously Cohen is an Irish name as well. Jennifer Beals’ mother, Jeanne Cohen, is Irish, not Jewish.

Anya March 24, 2012 at 9:44 am
Alice March 23, 2012 at 8:39 am

Bobatu names can have different origins. Cohen happens to have a Jewish origin and an Irish origin. No I’m not trippin I just know my Irish names.

Bobatu March 23, 2012 at 8:43 am

Her Mama is Jewish-Irish. Period . Ain’t nothing wrong with that…why you trying to say she just Irish. Not many Irish Jews now but used to be more. Mostly from Lithuanian Jewish origins. I know my names too.

Alice March 23, 2012 at 8:49 am

If people want to think Cohen is solely of Jewish origin don’t let enlightenment get in your way. It’s not that hard to research if you really wanted to learn. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.

Alice March 23, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Bobatu I’m not trying to say her mother is Irish. I’m showing that the name Cohen has an Irish origin also. Anyway her mother is stated as Irish American. I can’t find anything that says her mother is Jewish and I don’t think there is anything wrong with Jewish. Why isn’t there many Irish Jews now?

Alice March 23, 2012 at 10:35 pm

The Jewish population in Ireland has at it highest being 5,500 in the late 1940s, but has since (2008) declined to around 2,000, mainly through emigration to larger Jewish communities such as those in the United States, England and Israel.

The Minister for Justice and Defence is an Irish Jew Alan Shatter.

Alice March 23, 2012 at 11:42 pm

“Yet there were in Ireland – and there are to this day-Cohens who are as Irish as the Levys who were once Dunlevys.18 Irish-American Coans researching their family name on the web are doubtless pleased to find a site that offers an impressive coat of arms and a family tree that traces their ancestors back to one Caomhain, “who was chief of the clan in the year 876 AD.” They may be surprised, however, to find among the many forms of their patronymic the Jewish-sounding Cohen.19 In fact, according to Ida Grehan’s 1997 Dictionary of Irish Family Names, Cohen is “more usually” an Irish than a Jewish surname in Ireland.

Bobatu March 24, 2012 at 11:57 am

Anyone in Ireland with the surname Cohen (and with that EXACT spelling of it) is either

1. Jewish
2. Not Jewish but married to a Jewish person and has taken their surname
3. Not Jewish (as in non practising) but of Jewish decent.

Coen, Cowan, Cowen, Gowan etc…. are not the same as COHEN.

Jeez.

Paul March 24, 2012 at 1:08 pm

Cohen can be Irish or Jewish surname. It is the most common surname for Jewish people today.A lot of Irish surname were changed from the Gaelic names into English.Coyne Coen Kilcoyne are other variants used in Ireland
http://www.selectsurnames.com/cohen.html

Alice March 25, 2012 at 1:28 am

@Bobatu did you read any of the references? Why are you so insistent that Cohen is solely Jewish despite references showing that there are non-Jewish Cohens. The majority of Cohens are Jewish but if they are from Ireland they are nearly certain to have an Irish origin. I really don’t know why you are having trouble accepting this?

exotiq June 1, 2014 at 8:34 pm

@boss….Moron…She’s MIXED!!! …News Flash, the one drop rule doesn’t exist anymore dumbass! …If you put her next to a typical black woman and say that she’s black like her, everyone will be laughing at you!!!! That’s like saying Demi Moore is black also, just because her hair is dark, as opposed to blonde–who’s going to believe you?!!! I’m so over the ignorance in this country!! If it looks like a duck, it’s a damn duck!!! She’s MIXED…get that through your head, and this goes for all the rest of you ignorant fools! …Yes, she’s PARTLY black, but OBVIOUSLY, you don’t see it…if you didn’t know that her father was black, you would never know from looking at her–she doesn’t even look mixed in fact!!! She looks like she could be Irish, Spanish, Italian, any other Caucasoid race/ethnicity!!! …And please don’t let another black self-hating fool say “Well, there are black people that look like her”…. Show me proof and then show me how many you see walking around every day!!! …No wonder other countries make fun of us….need I say more?! lol …Geez….

midori29 December 3, 2014 at 11:20 am

@exotiq in America having one black parent still makes you black. Go read some racist sites or spend sometime in Alabama. Youlle quickly find out

donalda January 26, 2012 at 8:40 pm

For many years I thought she was fully white.

me January 7, 2012 at 10:00 am

i throught she was part jewish

missy January 2, 2012 at 8:24 am

god jen looks white im italian and darker than her it depends on genetics

Tracy February 11, 2012 at 5:12 pm

Human genetics are strange you never know how much of any descent a person will “look” like. A radio talk-show host had to to take back some comments. He said Soledad O’Brien was not black & shouldn’t be doing the “Black in America” docs for CNN. Her mom is a black Cuban & she does identify herself as black.

American87 March 5, 2012 at 10:52 pm

She is white, but she has a mixed ancestry of Irish, African, and whatever else her African American side has. That´s the beauty of America and its rich and diverse cultural history…or better yet, we could make it even simpler and say she looks ¨American.¨Are we Americans ready for that yet????

Angel Syrene January 1, 2012 at 1:17 am

She’s Jewish Irish

Ammz November 10, 2011 at 12:44 am

Cohen is a Jewish surname, I’m sure…

She reminds me of Selita Ebanks. She’s sooo pretty.

ricoh September 16, 2011 at 8:06 am

Many so-called European’s are walking around claiming thier are white such as Italian’s Spanard’s all Arabic countries and southeast european countries. They all look like her. All of these groups have African DNA.

American87 October 11, 2011 at 8:25 pm

And what´s your point???

Humansaredumb*** July 14, 2011 at 10:48 pm

I don’t know whats the problem with her being black. We are tired of the dumb standards on earth that white is better or any other race is better than black only because they’re different in looks, thats very stupid, and there will be a time and a place for those who Ridicule, harm, mock and manipulate black people, wait for it. why is it so bad to be black on earth, you treat them like there a horrible disease or something. “black dirty, black ugly, black this, black that, black, black, black”. who set the standard that tarnish their image?! for all the hurt and embarrassment, there has to be something very good thats going to happen for them, for being so hated on earth. Everybody in this cursed world originated from Blacks so hating them is like hating on your parents. Respect and you’ll get Respect back!!

mids July 8, 2012 at 5:12 pm

it’s called mixed

averagejoe April 26, 2011 at 12:31 pm

I always thought she would have some spanish or filipino in her, don’t know why, but african american is a surprise! I guess she got more of her mother’s side and her dad’s. I never would have guessed it! nice combo, she’s gorgeous.

Telka July 21, 2011 at 10:17 am

you’d be amazed how many people are of African American descent. During the early 1900s THOUSANDS of people of African descent moved to the North and assimilated into the white race. It’s called “passing”. They just disappeared.

American87 September 21, 2011 at 1:11 am

You can´t pass for white if you LOOK white. As it has been discussed, there is scientifically no such thing as race, everyone is mixed with something, and if you are white looking with african ancestry then that´s exactly what you are, white with african ancestry.

Ron Ng September 22, 2011 at 10:47 am

Quoted for TRUTH.

stubaby4u February 21, 2011 at 6:39 pm

The only authentic surnames of Jews are names such as Solomon or Levi, Cohen has european with irish and germanic connections.
You can not be PART BLACK in America.

Fuzzybear February 22, 2011 at 2:06 am

To stubaby4u

Sure you can,there are a whole bunch of white people that do it

BettePorterFan November 18, 2010 at 12:43 am

Ok, a little Jennifer trivia:

1. Mother’s maiden name: Jeanne Anderson
2. Mother’s married name: Jeanne Cohen
3. Mother married Edward Cohen
3. Biological father: African-American named Alfred Beals
4. Older brother who looks “hispanic” as JB said in an early interview
5. Younger brother who looks “typically biracial” as JB said in an early interview
6. JB considers herself BIRACIAL, that is what is identifies as THEREFORE

All you individuals calling her white or black are incorrect, in her opinion, she is both and you all should simply state her ethnic makeup or identify her as she identifies herself!

However, I will admit that the world DOES see her as “white”, well, unless she has a tan. (lol) I can bet, though, as soon as all those claiming her to be “white” find out her father was African-American, they’re quick to refute her.

Btw, she only looks “white” today because of a couple nose jobs and the fact that she straightens her naturally “ethnic” hair. (For those claiming her as “white”)

American87 October 11, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Most white people straighten their hair. You must not be white.

Kate September 8, 2010 at 9:01 pm

cohen is a jewish surname I was wondering why she had such a long nose ,she looks fairly white nowadays and since all african americans already have around 20% euro admixture i’d say she is more of a quadroon.

fuzzybear September 8, 2010 at 10:14 pm

To Kate

We really can’t assume that,because I know African American on the East coast who have as little as 3% euro mixture.Also facial features are just that,features.I cousins whose nose are just like her,and yet are very dark.I’ve also seen pure blood unmixed Africans with those same facial features.What I’m saying is you just can’t assume,I do know it was just your opinion

total23 September 9, 2010 at 10:25 am

yea thats quite possible. these new booty/generation (lol) mixed people in american now with a parent thats either white or black look much different than the 1st mulattos in america cuz they’re mostly something else. so technically they’r enot 1/2 black or 1/2 white

Bruthas from da 305 August 17, 2010 at 12:03 pm

african blood is a very dominate gene. One drop is all thats needed for that person to be link to that particular race. It does not matter if you are from the moon, if you have african blood you are more likely to be african.

Adriana August 17, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Wtf are you from the 1800’s You’re very close minded and clearly don’t know much regarding race and anthropology.

OMG September 17, 2010 at 9:21 pm

i agree adriana. that sounds like some regurgitated “one drop rule” bull crap. I beleive on this earth you can’t get any darker than an african person so it makes it extremeley easy to tell if you’re mixed with that particular group, especially when you consider how unique the facial features and hair texture are for that gorup. it’s actually partly the reason why africans were chosen as slaves, because when the first settlers attempted to enslave AmerIndians, they easily escaped, hwoever a Black person was more traceable and marked by their phenotype (observable facial characteristics and such). It’s what amrked the beginning of slavery being race based in this country

ethnic August 1, 2010 at 8:16 am

The Truth is back I see with the usual troll comments. you obviously have some issues.

I must agree with the comment above. I can’t believe how naive the other person is. Jennifer’s geneology does not matter. This why our country is so racist. Why not just celebrate her beauty, intelect, talent, and her heart of gold. She has become a fabulous adovacte for women and their causes.

Your mother and father had to have been brother and sister.that’s the only way I can see a moron like you being born.it doesn’t matter that She doesn’t have the features you believe a black should have.the fact is she is half black plain and simple,even someone like you should understand that.also black people come in more than one hair and facial type dummy

And U Can’t Really Say He’s A Moron, Because That’s The Way How People Will See Her. Alot Of People On This Site Would See Obama As Black Because He Looks Black. So Y Couldn’t “The Truth” Say Jennifer Beals Is A White Woman, When That’s How People May See Her.

The Only Thing I Don’t Agree On Was About The Part That White Is Better!

fuzzybear August 1, 2010 at 6:39 pm

To Total23

He didn’t earn the rank of moron because he sees her as white.That’s not why I called the person that,which BTW I was holding back.That person could have said I simply see her as white,and I wouldn’t had a problem with that.What earned this person the rank of moron is this(She can’t reproduce nappy hair, black skin, or black features)and this(They would just like to mate with a woman like her to whiten up their gene pools because they think white is better).I have no problem with people seeing her as a white woman.The problem is with all the other junk the person put down.Now I understand you want to defend his/her point of view,but I can’t believe you only disagree with the white is better part

quite sure my more browner grandparents produced green eyed whit elooking children. this is the most idiotic thing ive heard. black people in america are not necessarily the same as white people. one can be considered black whether you’re skin is the purest white- to the darkest chocolate. we literally come in all shades, eye color, facial feautures and skin types. So you have no idea what she can reproduce with whatever race her husband is. please sheck out her biography, nobody is trying to claim anyone, people are just stating her ethnic background for all concerned. And not all mixed balck people look the same : clearly Obama, halle berry,jennifer beals, lenny kravitz etc.. are mixed with the same thing and all look different. read a book please or actually step outside your comfort zone and really notice the diversity of people in this country.

Her mother IS Irish and fully Irish NOT Jewish, AT ALL. LOL. Look at this: Her father died when Beals was ten years old, and her mother remarried, to Edward Cohen. So that’s why. Her mother took after her next husband’s last name.

You’re right Cohen is a Jewish name but it is also possibly an Anglicized form of two Gaelic Irish surnames – O Cadhain of Connacht

And to Kira, Beals is a stunning looking woman no doubt.

Um, Cohen is not a very common Irish name. In fact, it’s not Irish at all. It’s Jewish. Unless her mother’s name was Cowan and is misspelled, this needs a bit more research.
