Her nose is ugly af

I have a hard time believing shes fully white, Her nose makes her look very middle eastern.

Let’s face it, you would rarely come across a nose like that in Germanic and Norwegian ethnicities.

This is a nose you’d see among Spaniards and Arabs.

She doesn’t look Middle Eastern though.

trust me many scandinavians and germans have a hook nose like that.

athelya December 12, 2015 at 11:05 am

well then that just proves my point, germans and brits can have a hook nose not just arabs.

athelya December 12, 2015 at 9:43 am

but it’s rare and it probably comes from her french side.. french genes are dominant after all

How does her nose come from her French side? Her nose comes from her mother, Meryl Streep, who isn’t of French descent.
