Good find. Yeah, not many Americans look like that. A famous one who does, the more angular Olivia Wilde, has much British/Irish ancestry. Actually, I discovered that many Australians have Irish ancestry.

Besides Renee Zellweger, I noticed, these two American actors have that 'look' too, but they aren't that famous:

Before pics are deleted, who is the woman? The man is Jerry O'Connell, and he is quite famous.

By the way, wearing a scarf looks European.

Blond hair dye is a big seller in Scandinavia. In parts of the UK fair and blond hair is quite common, with lighter skin than the rest of Europe. Even those with medium to dark brown hair will have very white skin and facial features particular to the British Isles.

Light is light brown hair and lighter, and light eyes. Before you posts again on this it is best you do a search on this forum as maps, charts, DNA, etc, will all come up. Member Saxonwold did lots on this. The DNA of the British Isles is the same as Holland, North West Germany and Scandinavia.
I dont know about dna as I'm not that much into genealogy, but there is a clear difference between our pigmentation (the British) and those from the Scandinavians, not only because of their very blonde ones, but the average here is much darker, Still we look very British/Western european. At my work place there are about 20 employers none of them is a clear blonde shade, I'd say 8 are darkbrown, 6 are plain brown haired, 2 auburn (reddish/brown), 1 redhead and 3 who rance from blond to lightbrown.

Pretty much 16/20 who are more brunette than blonde, and I think Its quite representative for the area. And about eye color I havent counted them all, but I'd think its about 12/13 with light eyes and 7/8 with brown or hazel.

I think europeans are quite close genetically between eachother and probably what accounts for visible physical traits makes up only a tiny portion of the whole Dna.

You never did a search and look before you responded did you? Hazel is classed as light eyes. All eyes are light except brown or black. The British Isles has the lightest skin. The lightest hair is in Scandinavia by percentage, who have darker skin. But the average hair colour of Scandinavians is light brown, which is similar to the average in the UK. So the "lightness" overall is about the same of Northern Europe, of which the UK is in Northern Europe. Some southern Englanders seem to think the UK is in Spain or somewhere.

It is not worth my while responding to you in depth when it is already there - search on this forum.

White American and Aussie (and probably Canadian) males tend to be "larger" than British young males, in my experience, and less "fashionably" dressed.

When I was in London. I can easily spot the European Americans before they speak. White Americans have more diversity than White Brits, tend to have a darker skin on average, and have different mannerisms.

Australians in general tend to look British but dress like Californians.

Anglo Canadians tend to look British in general also. It was a contrast to me to see how Brit Anglo Canadians from British Colombia look compared to the largely German/Scandanavian/Irish/other White people from Washington State.
