    Why are you people so surprised about a German having dark hair and eyes?

    You all swallow Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Cheryl Cole, Colin Farrel, Russel Brand and many other ‘dark whites’ as Anglo-Celtic, but this guy is now the most dubious one?

      im from germany and i am living here since my birth

      believe me

      native germans can of course have brown hair and brown eyes but there is something special and very exotic about MATTS HUMMELS

      we have a lot of turkish people here living and he could easily pass for turkish or even moroccan

      And don’t be ridiculous

      every time i m here on this site i see the same examples

      I see the same examples like COLLIN FARRELL etc. but they are not typical british or irish and their ethnicity is highly doubted

      • alberto.r7 says:

        He could be an exotic german or a turkish adopted by germans. I dont know. Obviously not all the germans are blond blue eyed.

        • neiltennant says:

          YOU idiot of course not all germans are blonde and blue eyed

          but there are miles between blond and black hair

          • rafe says:

            So you’re saying an ethnic German can’t have truly Black hair?

          • neiltennant says:

            nearly every german with black hair has foreign ancestors

            for example silesian, italian, spanish, turkish roots etc.

            i have a friend who is german and has black hair. After asking him several times he said that one of his ancestors (1821-1887) was indeed from the ottoman-empire and now this region is turkey

  3. Hill says:

    His dad has blue eyes and their mom has blonde hair and green eyes. I’m guessing they are adopted.

  4. neiltennant says:


    only if some does not say things about roots does not mean he or she has not FOREIGN BLOOD

    for example

    KOSTJA ULLMANN(indian mother)
    since 2008 i was looking on wikipedia but did not find anything and i discussed with friends that he does look FOREIGN
    they laughed at me

    now i see on WIKI = indian mother

  5. neiltennant says:

    BOTH OF HIS PARENTS ARE lighter than him
    maybe he was adopted or his mother had an affair with ITALIAN or turkish

    • andrew says:

      his brother looks like him, even more exotic. The adoption is not an option.

      • neiltennant says:

        ok interesting

        but i haven’t seen so many pure germans with that appearance

      • neiltennant says:

        Hey bro

        im from germany and if you ask 100 germans 100 will say he is not german or does not look german

        and in the past i was so right with other GERMAN CELEBS

        KOSTJA ULLMANN does not look german and i was sure he has some foreign blood and i searched on WIKIPEDIA for years but did not find anything


        • andrew says:

          Does football legend Gerd Muller look German to you?

          • neiltennant says:

            GERD MULLER as a young man with his very dark hair looked indeed not very german

            he could easily have been turkish

            but as older he get the more german he looked

          • neiltennant says:

            gern muller is german of course but we cannot know of his ancestors

            i know a guy who has turkish roots from an ancestor of the 19th century. He is the only black haired in his family the others are light brown or blonde haired and he showed me a picture of his ancestor from the 19th century who looks like him exactly and he was of turkish descent

          • andrew says:

            Dark-haired Germans do exist, and you are aware of it, even though they’re evidently outnumbered by the light haired ones. You can’t know all German people, which are the largest ethnic group of Western Europe. Google “Hansi Muller” and gimme your opinion.

          • neiltennant says:

            hey there andrew!

            HANSI MÜLLER has the typical SCHWÄBISCHE LOOK, some people in southern german in BADEN WÜRTEMBERG and BAVARIA have that look

            i lived in HEIDELBERG for 8 years and there are indeed virtually black haired and dark brown eyed germans

            but mind that they had admixed with people austria, switzerland and italy

        • crunty says:

          Hummels is German, although all nationalities are a blend of races. I could be wrong, but you sound like you are from the USA who is not doing that nation any good with your rather one dimensional way at looking at nationalities
          of the world.

          I could go on about I1 haplotype groups, but I will keep it simple. Parts of scandinavia have about 45% of this type, so more blondes and Germanic stereotypes are seen there. Germany has about 15% on average of this type as does The Netherlands, England and southern Scotland, etc. Even parts of Eastern Ireland has around 10%, thanks to Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans, etc.

            don’t be ridiculous

            i was in SWEDEN and there are people with hazel eyes or dark brown eyes and all of them have foreign blood

            i know a swede who claims to be swedish and being reported swedish ancestors since 1750 and he has brown eyes and i found out that both of his parents are jewish
