    Overrated as hell, even Kim K is prettier and I hate those Kartrashian whores.

    I bet she has some but not a lot native ancestry. She’s mostly European. I’m sure she considers herself Caucasian.

      There is no such thing as “caucasian” race. Caucasian people like georgians, dagestanis, chechens, etc don’t look like english, germans. And why would you think a southern european would like be saw as a northern one?

    She’s pretty. She looks like a mestiza. Mestizas are one of the most good looking.

      Meztizas always have African dna 99 percent of the time. Theyre triracials. Most just European and Asian Indian people dont look so good without a triracial African element. Most hispanics are really triracials.
      I had a Cuban best friend she was white but she had a half African grandma. They all do but still call themselves white. There is always an African ancestor among white Cubans.

        I highly doubt Ana De Armas has an african ancestor and even if she did what would be the point in calling herself triracial when phenotypically she looks fully european?
