      What?! He is not even considered pale in Spain, his skin tone is totally average. There is MANY spanish actors with the same skin tone or lighter. And his family hails from Andalusia, isn’t that where the darker people suppose to come from, the south Lol. Just comes to show the misconception people have about spaniards.

    Why is he ashamed of his Spanish side?

    He’s always playing French roles and trying hard to be French. That’s all he ever does in his movies. It’s so cheesy.

    You will always be Spanish dude…
