These Gorgeous Biracial Celebrities & Kids Will Make You See How Beautiful Interracial Love Is
The United States’ entertainment industries — whether for film, television, music, books, or theater — are among the largest in the world, attracting audiences from across the globe. Those of us who follow the entertainment industry are no strangers to seeing well-known actors and musicians from different races or ethnic backgrounds. Hollywood, after all, is a diverse environment where different people come to showcase their talents. In some instances, we even see them change their accents at will, just like a chameleon. That is because many of our favorite Hollywood celebrities actually come from other countries and may have learned English as a second language.
There are a surprising number of celebrities who immigrated to the United States before becoming residents. If you’re the sort who likes to gather trivia facts, you’ll probably recognize a few of these, but there’s a good chance you’ll be surprised by at least a few. If you want to know who they are, here’s a list of celebrities who, to some degree, have been mistaken for different races or nationalities.
1.Freddie Mercury – Indian/British
The Queen frontman never resembled a traditional British guy, so it’s not shocking that he was not born in the United Kingdom. Mercury was born Farrokh Bulsara in 1946 to British-Indian parents who moved the family to Zanzibar for his father’s government work. He was born as a British subject since Zanzibar was a British protectorate until 1963. After the family emigrated to England, he registered as a citizen of the United Kingdom and colonies on June 2, 1969. They returned to India for most of the singer’s childhood, then to Zanzibar shortly before the revolution, before settling in London in 1964.
Throughout his career, Mercury received several credits, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004 as a member of Queen. He and the other members received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 1990.
2.Sophia Loren – Italian/French
Sofia Villani Scicolone was born in a Rome charity ward for unwed mothers on September 20, 1934. As an actress, she went by the screen names Sofia Lazzaro and Sofia Scicolone before settling on Sophia Loren. In her first film in the United States, she didn’t have any lines. Loren appeared in Quo Vadis? as an uncredited extra.
When she was 16, she met Carlo Ponti at a beauty pageant he was judging. However, Loren and Ponti’s marriage got annulled after some legal disputes in 1962. Loren then married Giuliana Ponti in 1957, but the Vatican and Italian law refused to accept his separation by proxy. Loren ended up giving up her Italian citizenship in the process. In 1964, Loren and Ponti traveled to France and became French citizens. Carlo’s ex-wife, Giuliana, then secured a French separation with the help of her lawyers, allowing Loren and Ponti to remarry legally. Loren’s Oscar win for Best Actress in a Foreign Language Film was the first time an actress in a foreign-language film was awarded an Academy Award in that category.
3.Elon Musk – South African, Canadian, and the U.S.
Elon Musk is an engineer, industrial designer, tech innovator, and self-made billionaire. He is the founder, CEO, CTO, and chief designer of SpaceX; Tesla, Inc.’s early-stage investor, CEO, and product architect; The Boring Company’s founder; Neuralink’s co-founder; and OpenAI’s co-founder and initial co-chairman. With this much title to his name, it’s not surprising to see him on top of the world’s wealthiest people list.
Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa, to a Canadian mother and a South African father. He attended the University of Pretoria for a short time before moving to Canada at the age of 17 to study at Queen’s University. Two years later, he moved to the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and physics. In 1995, he moved to California to attend Stanford University but instead chose to pursue a business career, co-founding Zip2 with his brother Kimbal. In 1999, Compaq bought the company for $307 million. Musk co-founded online bank X.com in the same year, which merged with Confinity in 2000 to form PayPal, which eBay purchased for $1.5 billion in 2002.
4.Martin Lawrence – German/U.S.
Martin Lawrence is an American comedian, actor, producer, talk show host, journalist, and former Golden Gloves boxer born in West Germany. Lawrence’s father retired from the military when he was seven years old, and the family returned to the United States, settling in Landover, Maryland, near Washington, D.C.
Lawrence rose to prominence in the 1990s by establishing a successful Hollywood acting career. He got his start in the television series What’s Happening Now!! (1987–1988), where he landed his credit role as Maurice Warfield. He then starred in the Fox television sitcom Martin, as well as the Bad Boys franchise. Lawrence starred alongside Will Smith in the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise, Bad Boys for Life, in which he reprised his role as Detective Marcus Burnett. The film was a commercial success, grossing $112 million in its first four days on the box office.

He was a member of the English Debating Society while at university and considered a career in television news.
In the mid-1960s, Trebek became the host of the Canadian game show Reach for the Top. After its success, Trebek relocated to the United States in 1973 to try his luck in Hollywood and hosted various game shows, including The Wizard of Odds, High Rollers, The $128,000 Question, and Pitfall. Trebek’s life was forever changed in 1984 when television executives chose him to host the revival of Jeopardy!. In 1998, he became a naturalized American citizen.
6.Joaquin Phoenix – Puerto Rican/U.S
Since the whole Phoenix acting family is full of eccentrics, it’s perhaps not shocking that Joaquin was born in an unlikely place. His parents are both Americans, and his four siblings (River, Rain, Liberty, and Summer) were all born in the United States. However, the family spent many years traveling around Latin America with the Children of God religious group. This helps to understand why Joaquin was born in Puerto Rico in 1974. In 1978, the family gave up on the sect and relocated to the Los Angeles area.
Phoenix started his acting career in television series with his brother River and sister Summer in the early 1980s. During that time, he became known as Leaf Phoenix, a moniker he created for himself. Joaquin Phoenix, a Puerto Rican-American actor, producer, animal rights activist, and environmentalist, is now well-known. He has won and received credit from many award-giving bodies, including an Academy Award, a Grammy, and two Golden Globes. The New York Times ranked him No. 12 on its list of the 25 Greatest Actors of the Twenty-First Century in 2020.
7.Anthony Hopkins – British/U.S.
Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins CBE is a Welsh actor, director, producer, composer, and painter who holds dual citizenship in the United Kingdom and the United States. He has won several awards, including the Academy Award, four BAFTAs, two Emmys, and the Cecil B. DeMille Award.
When Anthony Hopkins became a resident of the United States, he almost lost his knighthood. Hopkins is Welsh, as you can tell from his accent. However, in the 1990s, the actor relocated to California and obtained US citizenship in 2000. Since the US pledge of allegiance contains the expression “I further renounce the title of nobility to which I have heretofore belonged,” some sources said he lost his title of “sir” and his Order of the British Empire. Hopkins, on the other hand, retained his British citizenship and his knighthood. Hopkins told the BBC that he wanted to become a resident of the United States because the nation had been “generous” to him to a large degree.
8.Mila Kunis – Ukrainian/U.S
Mila Kunis, who rose to prominence after her lauded performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall in 2008, is best known for her credit role as Jackie Burkhart on That ‘70s Show. None of this will lead you to believe she spent her first seven years of life in Ukraine and learned English in part through watching American game shows like The Price is Right. Her parents are Jewish, and by the time they chose to leave in 1990, most of their relatives had already left Ukraine for Israel, Germany, or the United States.
At first, the family suffered when they first arrived in the country. Kunis’ parents, who arrived in the United States with just $250 in their pockets after the Soviet Union fell apart, left behind successful careers in Ukraine. Thankfully, after several years in the Hollywood industry and accolades, Kunis’ net worth is estimated to be $75 million. Her parents must be incredibly proud.
9.Natalie Portman – Israeli/U.S

According to an interview she did with Marie Claire, her mother told her they were going to Disney World. At the 2018 Grammy Awards, Cabello discussed her past as an immigrant and expressed her support for the DACA initiative.

While Theron is better known for her home country of South Africa, she became a US citizen in 2007 so that she could vote and travel more freely.
She has won several awards, including an Academy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Golden Globe Award. She was hailed one of the 100 most influential women in the world by Time magazine in 2016, which is a testament to her investments in the industry.

Neeson, on the other hand, remains true to his Irish roots. He narrated the video for Ireland’s proposal to host the Rugby World Cup in 2023.
He has been the recipient of multiple award nominations, including an Academy Award for Best Director, three Golden Globe Awards, and a BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Neeson also gets credit as the seventh actor on The Irish Times’ list of Ireland’s greatest film actors in 2020.
