"He looks Australian"

My husband just made this comment about someone on TV. He looks Australian? What does that mean? I didn't realize that Australians had a "look". DH says, Oh yeah, they all look like...well, Australian. So, is it me or is this a dumb statement. Do Australians have a "look" that i'm not aware of?

I know what that means. Most Australian men look kind of wind swept and rugged and sunburned. (Its a good thing)

I don't think it's strange. People from a certain country do have a certain look. Whether Australian, Ireland, England, Russia and so on. Not 100% infallible, but to me, it's true.

And please, I do not mean this in any kind of racist way whatsoever, ok?

We have a friend who grew up in Australia. His mother is Portugese, his father is Indian. He has dark skin and dark hair. Then he pops out with this beautiful Australian accent which is quite unexpected! I wouldn't ever say he looks Australian! I guess I'd think of an Australian man as being more of a Crocodile Dundee-type!

I thought most Australians, (except the Aborigines) were British transplants?

That's sort of the idea I have--but I think it should be said this way: "Most Australian men on TV and in the movies look kind of wind swept and rugged and sunburned."

The Australian men I've met in real life don't really have that "look."

Yes. It's where prisoners were sent I think. But British.

So true, I can't say I know anyone IRL that has that look. Probably because they are all on tv.

We don't drink Fosters here. I think its just a marketing tool to sell it overseas. My DH says we ship the crap overseas and keep the good stuff.
