This is not one of my many Nigerian celebrity stories but another of my list posts and with this one we shall be making a long list of American Celebrities From Canada.
Popular names you never thought were actually from the country sharing border with the USA.
But then what do you think? America has always been a country of migrants and that fact will never change.
And being a country of dreams, these outsiders are now so fulfilled in life as American Celebrities that it is almost hard to separate their names from Hollywood.
Today we shall be taking a look at these celebrated foreigners as far as country of origin goes.
16 American Celebrities From Canada
1. Jim Carrey
Carrey was born in the Toronto suburb of Newmarket, Ontario , Canada, to Kathleen (née Oram), a homemaker, and Percy Carrey, a musician and accountant.
Jim Carrey is funny and will always be but these days he is now more of a spiritual person than anything else.
Talking about the purpose of life! And how everything is being control by forces so that humanity remains in spiritual infancy forever.
These days the dude is DEEP!
2. Nelly Furtado
Furtado was born on December 2, 1978, in Victoria, British Columbia , Canada. Her Portuguese parents, António José Furtado and Maria Manuela Furtado, were born on São Miguel Island in the Azores and had immigrated to Canada in the late 1960s.
3. Keanu Reeves
Keanu Charles Reeves was born in Beirut on September 2, 1964, the son of Patricia (née Taylor), a costume designer and performer, and Samuel Nowlin Reeves, Jr. He is also a Canadian.
Now this man gave me one of the most sci-fi movies ever “The Matrix “. Now that’s a movie I can watch over and over again.
4. Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds was born on October 23, 1976, in Vancouver , British Columbia .
You know him as the ant man or even if you go backwards a bit, as the “Green Latern”.
He is one of the most popular actors in America, if you ask me.
5. Ryan Gosling
Ryan Thomas Gosling was born in London, Ontario , the son of Thomas Ray Gosling, a travelling salesman for a paper mill , and Donna, a secretary.
