Some Of The World’s Biggest Celebrities Are Asian

From singers who fill stadia all over the world, to actors and actresses whose films we can’t get enough of, these amazing celebrities are, at least partly, of Asian descent. See how many of them you realized were so.

Actress Olivia Munn is of Vietnamese origin.

The gorgeous 37-year-old actress and model has graced some of the most glamorous covers and starred in some of the most popular Hollywood films, like “Ocean’s Eight”, “X-Men Apocalypse”, and “Iron Man 2”. What you may not know about her, though, is that her mother, Kimberly Schmid, of Chinese descent, was born and raised in Vietnam and fled to Oklahoma in 1975, after the Vietnam War.

NICOLE SCHERZINGER

The multitalented ex-Pussycat Doll has shown extraordinary talent in singing, dancing and being a judge on The X-Factor. She is also much admired for her amazing looks and hot body. It may be down to her mix of genes, since her father, Alfonso Valiente, is of Filipino descent while her mother, Rosemary Elikolani, has Native Hawaiian and Ukrainian ancestry.

KEANU REEVES

One of the most loved and respected Hollywood actors for over 3 decades now, Keanu Reeves is more widely known for starring in major blockbusters “Speed” and “The Matrix”, but also for his charitable personality, and his music talent too.

Another super-talented star is singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer Bruno Mars. Bruno, whose songs like “When I was your man”, “That’s what I like”, and “Locked out of Heaven” have topped charts the world over, may have to thank his genes for his charm and talent. Mars, real name Peter Gene Hernandez, was born on October 8, 1985 in Honolulu, Hawaii to Peter Hernandez and Bernadette San Pedro Bayot. His father is of half Puerto Rican and half Ashkenazi Jewish descent (from Ukraine and Hungary), and his mother, who was of Filipino and Spanish ancestry, emigrated from the Philippines to Hawaii as a child.

Even though his father is so widely known, though, few people actually know that Enrique has Asian roots. His mother, Isabel Preysler, is a Filipina socialite and magazine journalist.

Before the announcement, during the last episode of ANTM, Maureen dedicated all her efforts in the competition to her mother who passed away when she was just 11. “She would have been so proud,” said the emotional girl.

The gorgeous Filipina was afraid she was too short to win the competition.

In her last photo shoot in a costume that represented her country, Wroblewitz was breathtaking in a sparkling white mestiza gown that she accentuated with pearls.

“You delivered that quiet confidence, which showed that you have been soaking up everything we’ve been telling you, that you’ve been taking everything in and just completely laid it all out for us. And I am so, so happy to see that,” Cindy Bishop, a professional model who was one of the ANTM judges, told Wroblewitz.

The gorgeous Filipina stuns with every photo.

Maureen has lived a life of many changes but refused to give up on her dreams.

As a prize for her win on the show, Wroblewitz signed a contract with popular London-based Storm Model Management. She will also appear on the cover of Nylon Singapore’s online edition and feature in very high-profile fashion campaigns.

Alexa is the proof that mixed race relationships produce beautiful children.

The Supermodel That’s Living Proof That Mixed Race Relationships Are The Best

In an era where there are not many models that can stand out for being unique, Alexa Chung is the ultimate “it” girl, the girl that doesn’t follow the rules; she makes them. Let’s meet this amazing woman who is the proof that mixed race relationships can produce the most beautiful results.

The Most Convincing Argument For Mixed Race Relationships In The Form Of A Gorgeous Girl

Alexa Chung is arguably today’s most popular model. Her breathtaking looks along with her quirky and talented personality have won her a place in every major fashion show, magazine cover, music festival, TV show, and bookcase.

Beautiful Alexa is proof mixed race relationships have great results.

Alexa’s Parents

Born on the 5th of November 1983 in Hampshire, England, Alexa is the daughter of Gillian Burgess and Phillip Chung. Her mother is British, while her father is Chinese. What is so fortunate about Alexa is that she has been blessed with the best features from both ethnicities, making her face a unique blend of features that work incredibly well together.

She once told beauty blog Into The Gloss: “I’m mixed race — I’ve got half-Chinese hair, half-Caucasian hair — so it’s very fine and naturally bends as it dries.”

Mixed race relationships never seemed like such a great idea.

Alexa’s Rise To Fame

When she was just 16, Alexa was scouted in the comedy tent of Reading Festival. She started modeling for a number of teenage magazines, did a number of commercials (among some of them for Fanta, Sunsilk, and Sony Ericsson) and appeared in video clips for The Streets, Westlife, Reuben, and Holly Valance. She also appeared in a show called “Shoot Me” on Fashion TV.

Following her TV success, it was onwards and upwards for Alexa, who became the face of major fashion houses, such as Mulberry (who even named a bag after her), Lacoste, Longchamp, and walked the greatest catwalks for fashion houses like DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney, and Chanel.

The British girl also likes to party and has made a name in the celebrity circles of being a party animal, often seen in music festivals, parties, and clubs. Her (huge) circle of friends includes many of the greatest names in the music and entertainment industry.

Who can be against mixed race relationships when the result is so beautiful?

Standing Out

The one thing that really set her apart has been her own personality and sense of style. Alexa hardly ever provokes with her appearance, preferring to look cute and feminine and mixing garments and styles in a way that works perfectly for her, making her a style icon in her own right.

In fact, you will see her name on best-dressed lists, and very often in the front row at fashion shows. In December 2010, the British Fashion Council presented Chung with the British Style Award which “recognizes an individual who embodies the spirit of British fashion and is an international ambassador for the UK as a leading creative hub for fashion” at a ceremony at the Savoy Theatre in London. In the following years she has consistently been a winner in prestigious fashion awards like the British Fashion Awards -at which in 2011, 2012 and 2013 Chung won the British Style Award, voted for by the public.

When mixed race relationships end up making such a beautiful creature, who would oppose them?

Expanding

Not content with simply being a pretty face, the stunning lady has been involved in a number of projects, from hosting to writing books (she has written two so far) and to making her own fashion line, ALEXACHUNG.

Personal Life

Living between London and New York, the British beauty has been linked to a number of celebrities. Her most talked about being with famous musician Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys from 2007 to 2011, and Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard (of “True Blood” and “Big Little Lies” fame) for the past 2 years. Alexa doesn’t like to discuss her personal life, but she has said that she has a real fear of dating: “I have a pathological fear of dating. If someone says, ‘Do you want to meet for dinner?’ I’m like, ‘Is that a date?’ and then usually, if they’re funny and get it, they say ‘No’.”

Alexa Chung proves that mixed race relationships are beautiful.

This beautiful, smart, talented lady who has the wisdom and logic of her Chinese father and the wit and humor of her English mother, is the living, breathing proof (if proof were needed) that mixed race relationships are a great idea.

These dishes are why Asia is a foodie's Paradise.

These Dishes Make Asia A Foodie’s Paradise

If you are one of those people who simply refuse to leave a foreign country without visiting the smaller, off-the-beaten-track restaurants to sample the local delicacies; if you think your experience of a new place is not complete unless you try the local cuisine and you’re prepared to experiment and travel far and wide for a delicious traditional dish, this article presenting the best dishes of Asia, a foodie’s Paradise, is for you.

Asia Is A Foodie’s Paradise Because Of These Amazing Dishes

For us Westerners, Asian cuisine is somewhat of a treasure trove: the more we look, the more we find. And we are here to help you with the things you should be looking for.

If you go to Korea, you should definitely try kimchi stew – a strong dish made with pickled cabbage leaves. Another must-try is dolsot bibimbap, a spicy mixed rice dish with vegetables, chicken or beef that comes in a hot bowl with a full egg on top. The banchan (side dishes) come in a great variety; depending on the restaurant and the region you are in. They can include prawns, scallops, and other seafood or be plainer, vegetable dishes.

Korea is a foodie's Paradise.

You shouldn’t leave Korea without a taste of bibimbap

In Singapore, a light-as-a-cloud xiao long bao, which is a delicious, bite-sized steamed dumpling that’s usually filled with pork and broth, is a staple. Likewise, you shouldn’t leave Singapore without having a heart-warming dish of chili crab. A third must-have Singaporean dish is, of course, Laksa: a mouth-watering curry soup with rice noodles in coconut curry, shrimp, fish cakes, egg and chicken meat, that’s a cross between Chinese and Malay cuisine.

Chili crab is another reason why Asia is a foodie's Paradise.

Chili Crab is one of the most delicious dishes in Singapore.

And then there’s China, the country whose cuisine has been most spread and most tampered with than all other Asian countries’ cuisines. Who can leave China without having tried the traditional Peking roast duck?  Who doesn’t want to fill his mouth with fantastic wontons filled with pork or crab and dipped into sweet and sour sauce in their place of culinary birth? And who would dare say goodbye without tasting the spicy kung pao chicken, the Sichuan-province dish that’s an amazing stir-fry with chicken, nuts, vegetables and chili peppers?

Peking duck is one of the main reasons why Asia is a foodie's Paradise.

There is no Chinese dish more iconic than the Peking duck.

Last but not least, if you are blessed enough to find yourself in exotic Thailand, the place that is often said to have the best food in the entire continent, it would be a sin to leave this majestic country without having had a taste of delicious pad Thai and a fresh som tum salad. Pad Thai is the country’s national dish. It’s a stir-fried rice noodle dish that you can find anywhere in the country- street food stalls to the best restaurants in the country. Honestly, we can’t tell which version is the best – you’d have to decide for yourself.

As for som tum, this is a refreshing salad that’s made with shredded green, unripe papaya, garlic, chilies and a variety of nuts, noodles or seafood. It is said to have its roots in neighboring Laos, but it can easily be found anywhere in Thailand too, as it is a favorite with Thai people.

Pad Thai is another reason why Asia is a foodie's Paradise.

Pad Thai is the national dish of Thailand for good reason.

Whatever your taste, whether you like food that’s flaming hot or light and refreshing, Asia is not called a foodie’s Paradise without a reason: there is something there for everyone. All you have to do is look.
