With the world growing smaller every day, it's no wonder that many of our favorite stars come from other countries. It used to be that every once in awhile a secretly Canadian actor like Michael J. Fox or Anna Paquin would pop up on a TV show and no one would be the wiser, but now there are so many famous celebrities who aren't Americans that we feel like we should educate our audience as to who’s who in the fame game. These are the celebs that you didn’t know are not US citizens.These foreign-born celebrities each come from a different place, and they all landed in America for different reasons. Some of them emigrated with their parents, while others didn’t wash up on our shores until well into their career. Whatever it was that brought them here, the one thing that they all have in common is that we love watching them perform. On this list we’ll look at what each celebrity without US citizenship thinks of both America and their home country. And maybe even find out if they plan on becoming a US citizen any time soon.
