When I first saw him on X-factor I thought he knew he was desi but I didn’t think he would be half white. His Pakistani genes are strong

Collin Farrell has an unusual look. He looks meditarranian and not typical irish

“Correction” His mother is half Irish and half English. So it should be 50% pakistani, 25% Irish and 25% English

I think his mother is of less than half Irish ancestry.
