14 Big-Name Stars You Had No Idea Were Mixed Race
It’s difficult for anyone to tell a person’s ethnicity based on purely physical appearance alone — not to mention it’s borderline offensive. Good thing a lot of celebrities have been willing to put inquiring minds to rest by sharing their biracial/multi-racial backgrounds with their fans.
Maybe you didn’t know about this already, but stars like Zayn Malik and Troian Bellisario are actually mixed race, even though the media often suades us to believe otherwise. Prepare to gasp as we rundown other celebrities who you didn’t know have blended backgrounds:
Born in Geneva, Switzerland, the Vampire Diaries beauty comes from quite the blended background. On her father's side, she's Americo-Liberian, while on her mother's side, she's Jewish (from a family from Russia and Poland).
It's because of her combination of ethnicities that she parodied Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" and created a Funny or Die video dubbed "Black and Jewish." Slay, Kat, slay.
