Lol I haven’t heard from him since Twilight rumor casting. He should have listen to his Filipino stepmother and gone to the Philippines and become a big star there. At least he would get lead roles there xD Now his (desirabe philipino) looks going to waste

That’s why it says “Filipino” there, genius.

They are Mongoloids, akin to Mestizos.
