I love olive skinned, exotic men, but this guy is unattractive. His eyes are too protruding.

so you basically like every white celebrity because all of them get tanned… obviously.
that’s a weird comment.

I’m Irish, German, Scottish and Danish. My skin is very olive, I’ve had a genetic test done, I’m 100% white with a completely natural olive complextion.

I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT STUART TOWNSEND IS 100% ANGLO SAXON (IRISH), BECAUSE YOUR CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT HE HAS AN OLIVE COMPLEXION ON TV AND IN THE MOVIES ON CAMERA. ANYONE WHO HAS AN OLIVE COMPLEXION OR SLIGHLY OLIVE COMPLEXION IS BIRACIAL AND IT USUALLY COMES FROM ASIAN DNA/GENES, BECAUSE ASIANS HAVE OLIVE COMPLEXIONS. HE ALSO COULD HAVE A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF BLACK AFRICAN DNA/GENES ALSO, WHICH WOULD ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO THE NON-WHITE COMPLEXION. I WOULD STAKE MONEY ON IT. I ABSOLUTELY THOUGHT HE WAS ANGLO/HINDI (INDIAN).

Thank god the world doesn’t revolve around what “you believe” because you’re just plain ignorant.

metusa December 8, 2011 at 6:00 am

A/N you are full of shit i do not know how many stupid comments you plan on making,,,Stuart is Irish ok there is plenty Irish with olive skin get over it,Yes Ireland has been invade a few times hundreds of years ago by different groups so there is a genetic mix up like every country but you have to draw the line somewhere ,,Irish is his ethnicty with this oh they are from somewhere else,,His ancestors have been in Ireland for generations his was born in Ireland his parents were so he Irish,,This site is there ethnicty but you are going on about shit that if an Irish person has a darker complexion they are not Irish but Asian or a bit black stop being so narrow minded…You think all Ireland are a big fucking family that they all look the same and are im breeds or something,,I hate sterotypical fools..

Great comment Metusa.

the irish are NOT anglo-saxon…they are celts. And a lot of celts are dark

archer December 9, 2013 at 11:26 am

lol, my grandmother was a black haired, dark eyed, olive skinned Irishwoman, and although i am several shades lighter, I am still dark haired and brown eyed and I will slowly tan. I have had a genetic test done and my haplogroup is one of the groups that developed SOLELY in Europe!

roman2886 November 6, 2014 at 1:37 am

There are lots dark haired Irish people in Ireland its very common in the east coast west coast and south coast of Ireland they are called black Irish.

gel July 30, 2015 at 5:11 pm

He looks English. Many English look like this (he looks like his father, the golfer).
But they’re never called Black English, for some reason.

A user July 30, 2015 at 5:31 pm

He looks irish. Many irish look like this.

Funny you should say, I was thinking he was Anglo Indian too.

Irish aren’t Anglo-Saxon that’s English (angles mixed with the saxons) they’re celtic and I agree he looks like he could be part indian.

Alice May 18, 2016 at 6:33 am

That’s quite simplistic. Anglo-Saxon is very overstated and most of those groups in that part of the world whether they be “Celtic” or “Anglo-Saxon” are virtually the same. The reason being that the majority ancestry was laid down in the Bronze Age. This is why on dna cluster maps you see this.
