Do you have favorite Multi-ethnic celebs or couples?
Name them here!

I hope this doesn't sound weird, but since I have been married it's like I have this radar now and whenever a ME/IR couple comes on the scene I totally notice it. I know, I need to move somewhere where we aren't in such low numbers so I don't get so excited. LOL!

Anyway--

I LOVE Lenny Kravitz!
I LOVE Prince!

I've always enjoyed the work of the Tilly's (Jennifer and Meg).

I'm enjoying Jennifer Beals' work so much now (on the L Word)

Speaking of which, Pam Grier has frequently been quoted as identifying herself as 'multi-ethnic' and I am a fan of her work too...

Couples:
Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel--I think they are SO adorable together!

Anyone else?
:hi:

1. David Bowie and Iman, William Cohen and Janet Langhardt
Edited on Thu Jan-27-05 09:23 AM by kwassa
Bowie and Iman, one of more famous IR couples around, both stars in their own fields.

William Cohen married Janet Langhardt while he was Secretary of Defense, and would visit troops overseas together as a couple. I liked that.

here is a link to a picture of of them:


Prince Maximilian and Angela Brown

brief quote:

n what some are considering a modern-day Cinderella story, former New York fashion designer, Angela Brown, wed Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein in a fairy tale Manhattan wedding on January 29, 2000.

Angela Brown, the daughter of Mr. Javier Francisco Brown and Mrs. Silvia Maritza Brown, was born in Bocas del Toro, Panama on February 3rd, 1958. She attended high school in New York and studied fashion at the Parsons School of Design. For three years, she sold her designs under the name A. Brown and also was employed until September 1999 by fashion designer Adrienne Vittadini.

13. My latest: Wentworth Miller
Edited on Thu Jul-28-05 04:28 PM by DesertedRose
IMDB Bio: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0589505 /

http://www.filmfreakcentral.net/notes/wmillerinterview....

From the interview:

"Talk to me more about race, specifically about growing up mixed-race."

(Miller)
It had its challenges, for sure, but I mean, everyone has their challenges. I'm not going to pretend it was any more difficult than being anything else, than having any other kind of attribute that might distinguish a person for ill in the eyes of some. My experience is that I find myself having to constantly define myself to others, day-in, day-out. The quote that's helped me the most through that is from Toni Morrison's Beloved where she says, "Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined"--so I find myself defining myself for other people lest I be defined by others and stuck into some box where I don't particularly belong. There is the sense of being between communities and you sometimes wonder if you don't have to answer to any group or interest, that you're some sort of racial Lone Ranger, but the flipside of that is that a racial community, functioning at its best, provides not only a sense of identity--that luxury of looking into another's face and seeing yourself reflected back at you--but a sense of security and support. When I run into trouble, what group will rally to my defense, come to my aid. The answer, and it's scary, might be "no one."

But what were your racial issues? That you're of mixed race comes as a surprise to me and, probably, to most who are familiar with you and your work.

(Miller)
Well, let me put it this way, I've been spared to a large extent the business end of the race stick. Nobody's ever asked me to pay for a meal before I've eaten it, I've never been pulled over just because I was driving the wrong kind of car in the wrong kind of area at the wrong time of night. My encounters with racism are sort of second-hand situations where I might be standing around with a group of white friends and someone makes a comment that they wouldn't make, say, at my family reunion. It leaves a cut. Someone calls you "n*****" and it's like a knife to the gut. To be in that sort of situation it's just a little nick, but you suffer enough nicks and you bleed to death just the same. So when that happens, you're confronted with the quandary: do I stop the party, do I grind things to a halt? And ideally you would each and every single time, but Walter, I have better things to do than to educate people--it just has to be a case-by-case basis and you develop a lot of scars.

Here is an article from Black Entertainment online:

He's going to be on "Prison Break" on Fox.
He ain't bad on the eyes, either. :-)

I like Tony Parker, too (Eva Longoria's boyfriend, Spurs basketball player).
