that explains a heck of a lot. She is so hot. I know my penchant for Asian women is extraordinary, and I always wondered what my attraction to Tila was, but not I am totally ok with it.

About two months ago, Tila write on her official twitter page, what her great grandfather is French, and what from him came her freckles! But I can not find it now:(

it would be good to clarify her French heritage. it would explain a bit about her unique appearance.
