LMAO I bet all these people judging and writing comments about her race are coming from Non-Whites. You’re so eager to claim her partially as something else because you can’t handle that she’s fully White, get over yourselves.

xoxo October 2, 2015 at 12:05 am

& I bet you’re an ugly white trash idiot that lives in his mother’s basement and has never had a girlfriend. You’re so fucking pathetic, please get over yourself.

Never once did I think of her as a white girl, I thought she was half Asian and clearly other people think the same thing.

J420 October 4, 2015 at 11:38 pm

WTF?? LOL. It doesn’t matter what you think, because she is NOT half Asian. She is clearly White so get over it.

Everytime people like you see a pretty White girl you get always claim that they’re mixed when they are not, so FUCK OFF.

Ajaxfan January 4, 2016 at 12:27 am

ugly white trash? haha go your mom, pathetic goat fucker.

Sully January 22, 2015 at 7:17 pm

She looks Eurasian. Probably why she’s so popular in Japan? xD

M June 14, 2015 at 8:53 pm

She does. She looks a quarter Japanese or something like that. Maybe Filipino?

J420 October 1, 2015 at 9:11 am

No she doesn’t, and she’s not Japanese or Filipino you retard. She’s 100% European.

shobohunter June 4, 2014 at 4:03 pm

she look 100% white. why would one bother to claim the whitest girl? maby it is your Intellectual
. she is a epidemic of white Caucasian beauty. all of the Victoria’s Secret
model are like that even the black one are look Caucasian.

WTF June 3, 2014 at 7:34 pm

she actually looks part aboriginal. i wouldn’t doubt it because the aboriginals mixed with a lot of white people. she doesn’t look 100% white

andrew June 4, 2014 at 3:26 am


J.J. June 4, 2014 at 7:25 am

i wouldn’t say she doesn’t look 100% white or part aboriginal for that matter but she doesn’t look like the stereotypical anglo

J420 October 1, 2015 at 9:12 am

Wow you’re an idiot.

Nikki June 2, 2014 at 5:21 pm

where did you get irish from?

Alice June 3, 2014 at 12:39 am

If you read above she stated it herself in an interview with Craig Ferguson.

ihatemostpeople February 25, 2014 at 6:07 am

She has an Asian look to her though,

Holly12 April 7, 2013 at 12:14 pm

I’d like to know where the Irish has come from on the list of her ancestry, as in the interview shown above didn’t she just state English, Scottish & French ancestry?

Also Ethni can’t you try research Australian singer Delta Goodrems ancestry too? Maybe Follers you could help as I think you’re probably the best person to do so.

Holly12 April 7, 2013 at 12:31 pm

Sorry I’ve just seen where it says in an interview with Craig ferguson Miranda stated she had Irish & Scottish ancestry too, sorry my bad Ethni.

ethnic April 8, 2013 at 3:30 am

no problem. Tara found that gem.

ethnic April 8, 2013 at 3:35 am

I hope Aussies start to try to find their roots more through the various family tree websites. Seeing that a lot of Australians have at least one parent born in another country (if not themselves born in another country) )and considering Australia has only been colonized for over 200 years, I assume it will be easier compared to finding the ancestors of Americans.

andrew April 8, 2013 at 7:45 pm

a part of Australians descend from convicts. Most Australian states were originally settled as penal colonies (except South Australia). Many of the criminals were just commiting crimes of severe poverty — 7 years jail for stealing a loaf of bread, seriously. Most of them were not violent criminals, they were just trying to survive in the endemic poverty of London at the time. They were caught, and shipped over here, to get rid of England’s little problem of overcrowded prisons.

Labtec April 7, 2013 at 8:50 am

Some of the comments left here are hilarious. She looks like a typical Australian, and a typical Australian is of British Isles descent. This is a fact!

Even now, there are 1,500,000 British(Mostly English) born people living in Australia, easily the largest foreign born population in Australia.

J.J. June 3, 2014 at 7:35 am

i don’t think one could look australian, unless you were an indigenous aboriginal, the mainstream population of australia might be white of european descent but that doesn’t meant if you’re a white person living in australia you look australian, australia is multicultural, but as you’ve stated mainstream australia is british and/or irish descent and i don’t think she looks that at all, she looks eastern european and i guess the french is somewhat evident

ashash June 3, 2014 at 12:23 pm

According to you, Cheryl Cole looks part Asian and Miranda Kerr looks Eastern European, even though they are neither . . .

J.J. June 3, 2014 at 7:22 pm

i never said cheryl cole looks asian, that was alice, i just agreed that she doesn’t look full european, and miranda kerr most definitely does not look birtish/irish, my mum had a friend from serbia who resembled her very much so, and i remember seeing on a forum website someone asking her ethnicity and saying she assumes some sort of slavic.

ashash June 3, 2014 at 7:31 pm

Well, Miranda Kerr isn’t Eastern European. She’s mostly of British Isles descent. Surely she does look it.

J.J. June 3, 2014 at 8:29 pm

whatever floats your boats ashash

andrew April 7, 2013 at 5:49 am

Kerr= Scottish

tara April 6, 2013 at 9:40 pm


She also has Irish ancestry.

She stated this in an interview with Craig Ferguson


tara April 6, 2013 at 9:40 pm

she says this around 3:05

smiley November 21, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Absoulutely stunning.

smiley November 21, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Absolutely* Sorry, I was so excited I made a typo.

nnnnn September 28, 2012 at 1:30 am

She’s not beautiful, she looks like a seal

DarellDianne April 11, 2012 at 5:24 am

Im part filipino myself..and i have to agree she looks nothing like a filipino just saying

Lana February 14, 2012 at 12:53 pm

So you are not sure about if she’s turkish or not ?

Phoebe Tonkin February 28, 2012 at 7:58 pm


Anyway, I plan to study abroad in Australia.

! January 15, 2012 at 11:23 am

She looks completely Celtic.

! January 15, 2012 at 11:25 am

And she’s Beautiful! All races have beautiful women and she is an example of a beautiful Celtic one.

notional December 13, 2013 at 5:21 am

Celtic isnt a race

hyejin December 25, 2011 at 12:03 pm

Miranda Kerr, 2007 to present. Miranda is of Serbian, Iranian, Turkish and Filipino descent but born and raised in Australia. She started modeling at age thirteen after winning the Dolly Magazine Impulse Model Competition. Miranda is also featured in the exclusive 2010 Pirelli calendar. She is also the first ever Australian to grace the runway as an angel making her a shoe-in for one of the top ten Victoria’s Secret models.


Ana December 3, 2011 at 12:34 pm

One of my closest friends is half thai and half swedish and she has really light green eyes (sorry if my spelling is bad)

Ammz October 19, 2011 at 1:25 am

I seriously doubt the French… I know a lot of people who claim to be French, and I live in Australia. Apparently a REALLY small amount of the population, like 0.2% are of French background, and unless Miranda Kerr is a part of that, I doubt it.

vezna August 26, 2011 at 3:21 am

People do not want to believe women of English descent can be beautiful.As for Serbia-not my thing but may be for someone else.Another issue-taste.

Fake Name October 17, 2011 at 2:58 am

Get over your self who do you speak the entire world population when you say …”people do not want to believe women of English descent can be beautiful”… because you do not and you would not know what a Serbian woman looked like if she stood right in front of you. As far as I am concerned you have no “taste” Approximately 70% of the world’s natural beauties are slavic included in that a Serbian women! Not plastic fantastic want to be’s!

vezna August 26, 2011 at 3:18 am

She looks western Euro to me.I read those comments about her too.Was the host of today tonight joking or was she .She is basically British/Celtic stock with a touch French.In her own words.She could be Polish with her looks or Baltic but she is not.

Acadiana January 12, 2012 at 4:09 pm

She is basically like most Australians in terms of where her ancestors are from.

She is beautiful.

Ariana decir-gracias! August 6, 2011 at 10:47 am

You can tell shes full white and not fillipina !

S. August 3, 2011 at 7:19 am

Miranda Kerr isn’t part Asian at all. She has stated such to quite a few interviewers. Unfortunately it seems to have become quite the habit for people to label racially homogenous indivicuals as biracial or multi-racial. That’s wrong.

There are numerous people who try to claim Rachael Bilson is part Asian, when her father Danny Bilson is Jewish, and her mother Janice Stango is of Italian-American descent. The same has happened to Olivia Wilde, who despite being of Western European heritage, has been branded as being part Asian. Miranda Cosgrove, who is of Italian, Irish, Welsh, Russian, Armenian descent, comes to mind as well.

It’s one thing to claim people the likes of Chad Michael Murray or Dean Cain as being 1/4 Asian, because it is fact, and they have stated such. It’s another thing to keep insisting people who are monoracial, and have set the record straight, are biracial or multi-racial.

I realize that some biracial and multi-racial people want others to be like them, but it is wrong for people to label racially homogenous people as biracial or mult-racial, just to satisfy their desire for the individual to be so.

nora August 11, 2011 at 9:08 am

you said miranda cosgrove was armenian: so she is asian!

Diana September 14, 2011 at 8:04 am

Caucasian people originally dominated Central Asia, the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe. The Mongols attacked and pushed us out of territories that were originally ours.

The country of Armenia falls in Asian territory, just as many parts of Russia and the Middle East do as well. Are Russians, Armenians, Middle Easterners, etc., who have little to nothing in common with people from China, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, etc., the same race? No. It just means they are Caucasian people living in lands that are deemed as being in Asia.

Miranda Cosgrove has a Caucasian ancestor that lived in a country (Armenia), which is situated in what is called the Asian part of the Eurasian continent. Miranda has many more ancestors that hail from the European section of the continent. It’s funny that you choose to identify her with a tiny part of her heritage, as opposed to the majority of heritage, which is European. You’re probably one of those mixed people that wants everyone else to be like you. You people are annoying.

Lily November 14, 2011 at 5:28 am

How do you know she is 100% Caucasian? Having nothing in common with Mongolian doesn’t mean that there is no possibility she has Mongolian ancestor. I have many friends whose ancestor was African, Mexican, Indian, Asian etc. Some of them mostly have Caucasian figures, but they HAVE non-Caucasian ancestors. I’m not saying Miranda Kerr has non-Caucasian ancestor at all. I just want to say, you can’t tell it by looking their appearance.

Alexi July 11, 2011 at 6:25 am

wtf i read a comment saying miranda kerr is so beautiful because she has serbian blood in her? she doesn’t even look VAGUELY like a serbian or even a slav for that matter.

Talulah August 4, 2011 at 11:22 pm

Actually, she DOES look Serbian and very, very slavic.

Fool October 17, 2011 at 2:54 am

WTF I could so many women in Serbia that little Ms Miranda Kerr (I don’t tell the exact truth about my cultural identity) looks like. Miranda Kerr could pass as any Serbian woman or Slav in Europe for that matter. Have you had you’re head stuck in the sand for a while?!

AmySix July 10, 2011 at 2:44 am

Blue eyed filipina? Seriously, people should know what does a real filipina looks like. Even though a filipino is a half-american or english, most of them doesn’t have blue or green eyes.

jayb August 10, 2011 at 8:43 pm

Seriously, you need to get out more. I’ve met a couple of half filipinos that have colored eyes.

Delnegro August 10, 2011 at 8:58 pm

She ain’t Filipino so why y’all bringing it up wtf

Vanessa June 24, 2011 at 4:19 pm

she does not look Fili at ALL. She is pretty the way she is anyway.

BeReal June 6, 2011 at 4:59 pm

she is not philipino
i know every philipino would like to see miranda kerr be phillipino that would just make you guys proud but seriously accept the fact that she is not philipino
gossshhhh the same thing happend in miss universe 2010
miss philippines should have won bla bla bla
please i have lots of philipino friends but please accept it
i love philipino people but be realist

Sandra March 30, 2011 at 4:34 am

Miranda Kerr is beautiful because she have a Serbian heritage ! Serbian girls are beautiful … Ana Ivanovic, Milla Jovovich and Holly Valence !!!

Vanessa June 24, 2011 at 4:15 pm

No, not all are.

Amala March 27, 2011 at 10:38 pm

nothing to see here… english/scottish, how boring, i bet she’s making the french bit up.

Anonymous March 29, 2011 at 7:24 pm

You are rude. What is wrong with this girl being English, Scottish, and French? French is not even exotic.

Vanessa June 24, 2011 at 4:16 pm

What exactly is “boring” about those?

If anything French is boring, every American seems obsessed with it.

ProudFilipina March 27, 2011 at 2:05 am

hey people!when the host stated that she’s of Iranian,Turkish,serbian,and Filipino,why do trash that filipino part more that the european parts?i’m just asking,even though I’m biracial,I still stand up for my filipino race more than my chinese,indian,and spanish race,and i think i have puerto rican or mexican,i look like a latina.I have four very diffrent bloods,and my classmates just have one or two bloods,they bully me because of my race.don’t discriminate us filipinos any more.just saying!

raluca January 25, 2012 at 5:57 am

“(…)Iranian,Turkish,serbian,and Filipino,why do trash that filipino part more that the european PARTS?”
the only european part is serbian. the others are asian

Tiarra March 19, 2011 at 5:15 am

but people,don’t insult the Filipinos,it hurts,you know?I’m just standing up for my Filipino race,and people,if you’re filipino mixed with american or european race,the results would be beautiful,look at Vanessa Hudgens,Shay Mitchell,Jasmin Villegas they’re absoloutley beautiful from head to toe.peace out!

Tiarra March 19, 2011 at 5:09 am

Miranda’s not filipino.I would know that cause I’m filipino.If she is filipino,she’d be tan,but she’s white.

Kate July 15, 2011 at 8:23 am

Untrue I’m part filipino [my mum looks very indigenous/pacific but has some hidden white german genes from both parents].I’m part black and I look whiter than Kerr with much tinier lips.There are allelles that decide what skin color you get, I had the alelle for white skin and tanned skin.

Kerr has a very slavic phenotype – high cheekbones,slanted eyes and wide face structure.

I recall her talking about her asian heritage on australian tv she is a rural/country girl I recall.Probably she was pressured by her pr people to downgrade it because australia loathes immigrants etc.

She has nothing about her that suggest an atypical english or french phenotype at all.

anen November 7, 2010 at 11:07 am

haha I have always defended she was White! being a fan i’ve seen her family album and all her interviews =). But Man I can’t believe some stupid asian/filipino/japanese guy on youtube tried to tell me otherwise you know during that time that they made all that stuff up that she was turkish/serbian/flipoino yadiyadiyada. He was like oh her face is round she looks asian xD and I’m like WTF other fashion WHITE models have round faces like Gemma ward and Lily Cole they are not asian xD and then he was like she has small asian eyes xD and I was like Are you blind!!! her eyes are Round NOT slit and she’s got colored eyes I’m like how un-asian can she get xD LOL then i ended it by saying that he should stop claiming beautiful people as yours when they’re clearly not just to make himself feel better LOL Losers

mel November 28, 2010 at 10:45 pm

ohh ok so shut the fck up!

Brit February 24, 2011 at 8:12 pm

For your information there’s alot of beautiful girls that have mixed Asian ancestry.my cousins girlfriend is blonde with blue and her grandfather is Japanese. Don’t be so ignorant because anyone can be beautiful they don’t just have to be white…also everyone in the whole world has some mix who knows a long time ago one of your family members could have been black or a native and there’s no way of you knowing so be quiet and go take history lessons

Anonymous August 4, 2010 at 8:06 pm

Miranda is so cute with her dimples and beauty and she married Orlando too. Aww…I guess

Anonymous July 10, 2010 at 6:17 am

Miranda is English, Scottish and French. She said so herself. Why do people keep on insisting that she has heritage from elsewhere when she has clearly stated this. She also categorically states that she is NO PART Fillipino. Why do people make this stuff up??? The interview is here


ethnic July 10, 2010 at 9:23 pm

yeh I dont know where they got the Filipino part from.

Natasha July 3, 2010 at 3:09 pm

She must have German heritage,because of her surname.

Blahblahblah July 3, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Kerr is Scottish

Anonymous May 10, 2010 at 9:01 am

She’s also Serbian, Iranian, Turkish and Filipino.

Im pretty sure that was an Internet myth.

Natasha June 20, 2010 at 8:58 am

No,you’re making that up.

Worldgrl November 11, 2011 at 10:18 am

of course she’s mixed with more “darker” cultures ,.that’s how she got her mysterious looks little bit vampy + that kinf of round face ,..not by being just white hahah

Anonymous March 7, 2010 at 8:18 am

mirander kerr says that she doesnt know where the host got that from because she said she is australian with english/scottish ancestry. on her wikipedia it says she is scottish/english/french and fillipino. i think she is one quarter fillipino and she is also Buddhist!!

lizzie June 20, 2010 at 10:42 am

What do you mean, Nathan?
What does it take to be “white”?
Serbia is a European nation.
Can you tell us which European nations and ethnic groups
you do not consider to be “white”?

Nathan Teasdale Mottram February 19, 2010 at 11:43 am

she must have white heritage aswell she looks like it
