Stewart is a Scottish name, so unless there were adoptions in her family tree, she is definitely part Scottish. Looks wise, she looks British. I also guessed she was a lesbian long before it became public knowledge – she has a sharp look and sour mouth that quite a few other famous lesbians have.

But how is it possible that there isn’t any information about her ancestries?She is a very popular actress.

Always thought she was a pretty woman and a dark kind of way… seems like a bad girl. Rebel girl…

Yeah she likes women.

hesh123 August 1, 2015 at 3:13 pm

Looks very english, has that gorgeous sharp type face

hesh123 September 4, 2015 at 8:59 pm

I meant scottish

cwm85 July 16, 2015 at 3:31 pm

I thought at first she may have had some native blood in her… I don’t know why..

she looks nothing like sandra bolluck, katy perry or mila kunis and there all white women
and stop being racist, whites are not devils.

andrew October 2, 2014 at 2:03 pm

maybe “unknown” is a good tag

ethnic October 2, 2014 at 5:48 pm

Id rather not see unknown too often because a lot of celebs have some part of their ethnicity which cant be traced. I think an educated assumption until proven otherwise would be better. In Kristen’s case it is highly likely that she has English ancestry as well as Scottish.

Kate December 31, 2013 at 8:30 pm

This wouldn’t be her ethnicity. If her mother is Australian & her father is American, this would make her Autralian & Scottish-American possibly. Most likely, since “Stewart” is a Scottish surname, her father might be of Scottish descent.

I think it should be listed and or corrected.

J420 October 26, 2015 at 11:56 pm

That doesn’t make any sense. Australian and American are not ethnicities.

Gabby December 13, 2013 at 9:25 am

Her mom is Australian and her dad is American.

DK1x March 27, 2013 at 1:35 pm

There’s a good chance she’s German since she looks like Cassadee Pope. And Cassadee’s German.

theropod June 28, 2013 at 7:36 am

Her mother is Australian – who are mostly English, Irish and Scottish. So I doubt that. I’m guessing she could be part English or Irish.

But then again her American father could be part German, so who knows.

smiley November 21, 2012 at 12:46 pm

I think Kristen has pretty coloring but she’s not my particular cup of tea in terms of facial features.

blythe October 11, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Well her mom Jules was adopted, so the assumption she’s part German because of the Mann surname is likely not accurate.

And she, like Winona Ryder, dyes her hair brunette so we can’t go by hair color either. She is actually a natural blonde/strawberry blonde.

andrew March 27, 2013 at 3:51 pm

maybe it’s because of Thomas Mann (who was German),but seriously I’ve never heard an Englishman with that last name

Alice September 14, 2012 at 1:53 am

If Kristen’s German ancestry is based on her mother having the last name of Mann I think it might be incorrect. Mann is a reasonably common surname in England and Scotland.
I know that Mann can also be an Austrian name but unless you have proof that Kristen’s mother is of German descent I don’t think you should just go on the name as it also has British origins.
Has anyone got any factual proof that Kristen has German ancestry because the name Mann has multiple origins?

Alice September 14, 2012 at 2:54 am

You are good at those follers. If anyone can get to the root of this you can.

SmartAss September 14, 2012 at 12:51 am

I agree she looks pretty german i stay for 1/2year in germany because of a school exchange and there were a lot of girls with similar look

The most people think in stereotypes the German people are in majority blond with a very fair skin and blue eyes THATS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE

The majority of germans are dark haired (chestnut brown or dark brown) with light olive skin and green, blue or brown eyes! I saw some people with yellow eyes looks amazing

Rob June 17, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Very pretty girl.

levangelista36 June 19, 2012 at 6:01 am

Kristen is alright with me.

Blonde Frizzles May 16, 2012 at 3:20 pm

She’s pretty and I think she was good in twilight. I’m not OBSESSED with her, but I can’t stand it when people HATE celebrities like “The Biebs” just because it’s the cool thing to do. lol all my friends don’t like her for no reason :(

Milka May 16, 2012 at 1:51 pm

What are you talking about “Mann” is a German word which means man. If its an English name wouldn’t it be only one n?

yousra March 10, 2012 at 4:38 am

damn it!!! american is a mixed of races such as australian i don’t get it how they ONLY PUT GERMAN AND SCOTTISH ITS OBVIOUS SHES MORE THAN THAT!!! like daaaAA…

I love you, Roger Scientist March 10, 2012 at 5:33 am

WG, is that your stupid ass?

J420 November 7, 2015 at 2:10 am

Since when is Australian a race? dumbass. The rest of your comment is just total ignorance.

Joe March 2, 2012 at 5:22 pm

Mann is an English surname as well, and her mother is from Australia where most people are of English descent. She is most likely English-Scottish which she looks like.

Marc February 20, 2012 at 11:10 pm

i can’t understand.why Kristen is German? Just because of mother’s surname? But,Mann is old british name also! so there’s no reson to talk about her german heritage without reliable evidence

Khail Jo January 10, 2012 at 7:41 pm

She’s scottish and german.

Khail Jo January 10, 2012 at 7:39 pm

She’s Australian.

Khail Jo January 10, 2012 at 6:58 pm

At first I didn’t even know what heritage she has, i’ve heard that she has an australian mother. Right now I’m surprised that she was German and Scottish, maybe its because of her pale skin that she got from on of her genetics.

juli22 September 23, 2011 at 10:14 am

okay i think that shes`s German on her mums side,Mann is really a German name

Marc August 15, 2011 at 2:31 pm

Mann is widespread in Britain not less than in Germany.
This surname may originated from Isle of Man

Justin Bieber August 15, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I’m not her fan but WOW she’s got some beautiful eyes,well atleast in this picture

Ariana June 13, 2011 at 9:51 am

I love Kristen’s look so much!!!! She can be bonde, her natural brunette color in the picture, black haired, or even have red hair and still look so gorgeous. Unfortunately I’m filipino, spanish, chinese- american and look nothing like her :( make-up helps a little but it can only do so much. I really wish i looked like her….

Emmz June 25, 2011 at 4:09 pm

Actually blonde looks pretty bad on her, it makes her look yellow and tired cause it clashes with her coloring. But this beautiful reddish brown looks good!!!

juli22 March 14, 2011 at 4:06 am

and by the way “mann” her mums lastname means the word “man” in german, i dont think that someone german gots the lastname “mann” when it means this,mhh and maybe she is too jewish or something cause okay the lastname of her mum is mann so i think that her mums dads lastname mann is, but no one knows what the lastname of kristens mums mum is (her grandma), maybe is it a jewish, a french name or something diffirent, so you dont can say: kristen is just scottish and german, no one of her fans knows the lastname of her mums mum..

Jaime aida harkin May 26, 2011 at 2:32 am

My name jaime its irish my middle name is aida its german my last name harkin its scottish im irish,scottish,german i look some what like kristen,i seen her mom and she looks so german however i dont see a english in her,i dont know why you assume english and that she does not look german i would like to see the german people you are talking about they look like kristen.

Jacob April 1, 2012 at 4:24 pm

Jaime is Spanish not irish for your information. It is usually a male given name.

Me! February 11, 2011 at 6:25 am

when I saw her for the first time a thought she was German.. xD! I was right!

juli22 February 13, 2011 at 5:50 am

shes isnt german ! shes scottish and i guess english, the lastname “mann” what her mum has is too english.

Robert March 10, 2011 at 12:54 pm

It’s common for people to adopt English sounding surnames (and to a lesser extent Lowland Scot and Welsh) within an English speaking country like the USA, Canada Australia and New Zealand. The Africans took them by force, indigenous peoples did as well to an extent, and voluntary immigrants to those countries either had their names changed upon arrival, or even one or more generations later.

In short, she could be any number of ethnicities.

Me! March 25, 2011 at 12:22 pm

what the hell? the English surname is Man.. and not Mann.. Mann is a German word which means Man..! I would know I’m German!¨

juli22 October 23, 2010 at 4:27 am

i think that shes scottish from her dad, and british from her mum, because her mum is from australia, and look at the australian flag,theres the british flag, because much british people came for a long time to australia,and the most australian people have british blood.

Franco October 23, 2010 at 4:51 am

Aussies could just as easily be part Irish as much as they could be part British. Ned Kelly, Heath Ledger, Errol Flynn, Kylie & Danii Minogue, Paul Keating, Rove McManus etc…too many to name really.

lol November 3, 2010 at 4:53 pm

Hahahaha. Australia’s a multicultural country you idiot.

juli22 December 13, 2010 at 3:43 am

call my idiot if it makes you feel better,but im sure shes british from her mums side, her mum and kristen dont looking german

Paul. February 13, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Why don’t you tell us what a German person looks like, then?


You can’t. Because any white person could be German. Jeez.

She looks and sounds happier in this interview. (For all those who think she’s a snobby cow.)

Mann is an Anglo-Saxon surname, and I highly doubt her mother is of German ancestry, about 40% of Austrailans are of English Heritage :)

Paul. June 18, 2010 at 2:31 am

The surname Mann, is still Germanic. It was the old German word for man, so she still might be German on her mother’s side instead of English. I hope she is part German.

ethnic June 18, 2010 at 7:33 am

I dont think its impossible for her to have German Australian roots. Im from OZ and I met quite a few people with Germanic names.

Kira June 18, 2010 at 9:07 am

i love that australia is also called OZ , i mean United States ,US, just dosent sound cool lol

Paul. June 18, 2010 at 10:28 am

Like I said, I hope she is part German, it’d make a nice change. Plus, I like Germany and I like Kristen. <3

esme June 19, 2010 at 11:39 am

im part german too, but on my dads side, hes english,and so am i, i was just going off what my mum had said to me, shes austrailian too she says in austraila most people are if english and irish ancestry from the criminals that were shipped there in something like the 18th or 19th idk:)

zuzanna June 4, 2010 at 12:23 am

i think she’s nice but she got THAT german jaw :P

anna June 4, 2010 at 5:40 am

oh god,what a comment!and what a stereotype…

ses101 January 18, 2017 at 7:58 am

There are distinctive types of jaws, eyes, noses, mouths and so on common to different countries and races. Is it wrong to acknowledge them? If we weren’t observant we’d never get anywhere.

total23 June 3, 2010 at 12:04 pm

How Is She Scottish – German When Both Her Parents Are American?

And It Doesnt Say Her Parents Are Of Descent?


ethnic June 4, 2010 at 12:38 am

I think thats her ancestry.

fuzzybear June 4, 2010 at 5:57 am

To total23

I understand what your saying,but it’s the same thing they say to us African Americans,although I don’t know if your that.They say we shouldn’t call ourselves African,but then I ask what are we supposed to call ourselves,Black?Although that would be just fine with me since I rarely call myself AA,unless it’s for business etc

total23 June 4, 2010 at 6:55 am

But Its Strange!

My Last Name Is Harvey; Which Is European Origin (It Came From More Than One Country In Europe. My Mom’s Last Name Is Fogah (I Honestly Don’t Know The Origin Of Fogah Name, The Computer Doesn’t Know Either. Fuzzybear And Ethnic If You Can Find The Origin Of The Fogah Name, I Will Always Love You! But I Won’t Love You In That Way Cuz I’m Not Gay, No Offense To Anyone Who Is.) And My Maternal Grandmother’s Name Is Lawrence; Which Is Also European and Latin Origin. And My Maternal Great Grandmother’s Surname Was Sutherland; Because Her Father (My 2nd Great Grandfather) Was A White Jew And Her Mother (My 2nd Great Grandfather) Was Moroon, So She Was Biracial. And The Name Sutherland Is Of Scottish, Norse Origin. And Lastly (Cuz I Dont Wanna Go Too Far) My Paternal Grandmother’s Surname Is Duffus Which Is Of European Origin Again!

So Does That Make Me Europe. Please Explain Fuzzybear Or Ethnic, Cuz I Only Run To You With Questions Like This!

ethnic June 4, 2010 at 7:06 am

Duffus is Scottish, Fogah seems to be English

You can google these names eg. “Fogah surname”

fuzzybear June 6, 2010 at 5:22 am

To total23

I’ve never heard of this name either,but that doesn’t mean much.Like Ethnic,I seeing reference to English,but also to Semitic,but nothing definite. Back in the day a lot of people couldn’t read or write,or had any schooling.So sometimes people spelled names the best way they could.You have to remember names are just made up.People take letters and make names,or maybe they saw something,like it and spell it the best way they could,who knows.Back in the day with movies,it always made me laugh,when someone would mark their name with an (X).Fogah might not even have a meaning,so don’t put to much stock in a name.Now this is just my opinion,disregard if you wish

total23 June 6, 2010 at 2:12 pm

I think she a mean bitch cuz when she was in australia she gave an aussie the finger so that bitch can just choke in her sleep:D jajajaja

blurblar May 31, 2010 at 3:25 am

oh i thought she must of Greek descent coz she has that “ethnic look”.
&yways, i agree she looks strange like a tranny. she doesn’t talk good in interviews. and her acting is meh. But i hope she’ll get roles from Oscar winning directors and improve her acting. She’s young. She’ll have lots of time.

Bombpants May 31, 2010 at 7:08 am

Tranny? lol very amusing. but now you mention it…

Paul. April 15, 2010 at 12:53 am

Awww Kristen is awesome. She’s just shy and reserved, but that look suits her. I don’t think she looks sour or snobby, she looks normal. It’s nice to see a normal celebrity.

India April 9, 2010 at 12:57 am

I’m the same way, Meagan. People often think I’m stuck up or bitchy because I’m really quiet and distant.

Just so everyone knows this isn’t me. Apparently someone else has the name smiley. :(

meagan April 8, 2010 at 3:13 am

but im not cold just sometimes scared meeting or knowing people andd stuff so yeah im a hard egg to crack

meagan April 8, 2010 at 3:11 am

i think Kristen Stewart is like that because she is shy and awkward and likes to be edgy, and beside Im really shy and people mistaken it for being cold and stuff,and i like her style

India April 8, 2010 at 12:57 am

I think she’s adorable. The surly thing works.

ethnic April 1, 2010 at 12:22 pm

even in the pic above it looks like shes struggling to smile.

Mellow Yellow April 1, 2010 at 6:16 am

Yea she always looks like she bit something sour

ethnic April 1, 2010 at 2:45 am

she fits that character in twilight perfectly as she looks like an unhappy person all the time. :)

Mellow Yellow April 1, 2010 at 1:57 am

She is so ugly to me and plain looking.
