Interesting she’s naturally a blonde. https://www.instagram.com/p/BB-jl-qjFbZ/?utm_medium=copy_link
Lol. Kids use to have blond hair.
She said herself she’s really a blonde but her hair turned dirty blonde when she was a teen so she’d highlight it but now she dyes it brunette for roles.
her maternal grandfather is alive!

Perhaps create a category for Jewish Argentines. Especially since Argentina has the most Jews in Latin America. While Brazil having the second largest.
I’d advise against putting everything under Argentinian here. If every ethnicity can be part of a broader Argentinian group, then the word becomes useless.
