A 23andMe DNA test taken by Mila stated that her genetic ancestry is:

*96%-98% Ashkenazi Jewish

Mila has also said:

The amount of guilt that I’ve perfected the use of – already on my 3-year-old – is magical… I took a 23 and Me test, where you find out… what’s your DNA… and I’m thinking “I’m going to be exotic… there’s going to be something wonderful about me.” No, ya’ll, I am 96% Ashkenazi Jew. You know what that means? I’m inbred. I am really Jewish, you guys. There is nothing about me that’s exotic. I am a Jew. You know what that means? Guilt.

    To all the ignorant idiots who are saying she looks “Latina”, you obviously don’t have a clue what a Latina is. A Latina/Latino is basically anyone who speaks Spanish and was born in a Latin-American country. So many of them are white spaniard, as well as German and Dutch descendants. Ive met people who are from Venezuela, Argentina, and Uruguay who are pale with blonde hair and green/blue eyes. Majority of latinos in south America are white. However, this is different in central America and Mexico. In Mexico and central America, they are mostly mixed Amerindian and spanish(white) ancestry, or full blooded Amerindian. Latinos/Latinas can be any color or race. So basically, saying someone looks “Latina” is like saying you look American. Because like americans, they can be of ANY race or color/complexion.
