In a new interview for Allure, Meghan Markle provided a candid look into some of the struggles she has faced as a biracial actress in Hollywood.
“For castings, I was labeled ‘ethnically ambiguous.’ Was I Latina? Sephardic? ‘Exotic Caucasian’?” the Suits actress, 35, explained. “To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot.”
Markle, who has been dating Prince Harry since 2016, also revealed experiencing colorism – feeling too light in the black community and too mixed in the white community. Her full interview is available in Allure’s March “Beauty of Diversity” story.
