    Philomena Paiano was the daughter of Joseph Paiano and Francesca, and was born in Tresilico, Calabria, Italy.

    A question: can an ethnic Hungarian carry the surname “Abraham”?

    Look 100% Italian

    We were a bit off topic on this page, although not really. We were talking about Italian-Americans and that pertains to Clint. You also found his maternal and paternal grandparents, that he is 50% Italian, and that he also has Hungarian and German ancestry.

    Now for some sexiness:

    Follers, please tell me I’m not crazy in thinking that she looks 100% Italian. I don’t see German, Norwegian, or Anglo in her at all! LOL.

      Why Schmaltz?

      Oh . . . It’s a English term derived from Yiddish that means “rendered animal fat.”

      I think they’re glad their name is Schmautz. LOL.

      Stacie looks very Italian to me. :D

    • levangelista36 says:

      No freaking way!

      She doesn’t even look like them!

      Is she adopted?

      Maybe I need to see a close-up!

      Maybe she looks like a carbon copy of her Italian grandpa!

      She has 4 siblings! I wonder if she is the most Italian-looking of them all!

      This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this! I know this one girl who is 50% Italian! She is very dark, with the skin, hair, and eyes! But then I saw her parents and freaked because they weren’t as dark as her! Neither was her brother! I thought she for sure was adopted or pulling tricks on me!

      I’m shocked! Stacieeee!

      I just got done watching the video, and she does look like her mom. I thought it was kind of funny, seeing her mom sing like that. You’re right, though. They were probably darker when younger.

    I wonder if Joey Pantoliano is full Italian.

    • follers says:

      His maternal grandparents, Mamie and Gus Centrella, were both Italian-born, as were their parents. I think Joey’s dad was fully Italian, too.

      In this movie we’re casting, Joey Pantoliano will be played by British singer Harry Styles, making his acting debut.
