Most people don't realize that some of the biggest names in Hollywood are in fact, Canadian! I know for myself, I just assume everyone is American because celebrities and Hollywood is so engrained into the American culture. I was very pleasantly surprised to find some of my favorite actors and actresses are home to the maple leaf country. So here's 10 of my personal favorite Canadian Hollywood Stars:

Ryan Gosling

Birthplace: London, Canada
The famous Canadian actor seems to be quite the heart throb among his millions of fans. He became virally famous when the "Hey Girl" memes flooded the internet wishing people to do well on their math test, dump the boy they liked, or even to have a good day. Recently, actress Emillia Clarke proposed a threesome with Sarah Connor, Daenerys Targaryen, and Ryan Gosling. She revealed in an interview that the two women think Gosling is "really hot!"

Jim Carrey

Birthplace: Newmarket, Canada
If you wondered what Carrey has been up to lately, you could just head to Twitter and check out his latest rant. He recently just called California Governor Jerry Brown a "corporate fascist" who "must be stopped".
Carrey took to twitter tweeting, "California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines. This corporate fascist must be stopped."
And..."They say mercury in fish is dangerous but forcing all of our children to be injected with mercury in thimerosol is no risk. Make sense?"
Also.."I am not anti-vaccine. I am anti-thimerosal, anti-mercury. They have taken some of the mercury laden thimerosal out of vaccines. NOT ALL!"
Still going.."The CDC can't solve a problem they helped start. It's too risky to admit they have been wrong about mercury/thimerasol. They are corrupt."
Yep not done..."Go to watch the documentary and judge for yourselves. If you really care about the kids you will. It's shocking!"
Still there?..."I am PRO-VACCINE/ANTI-NEUROTOXIN, Get that straight."
Okay last one..."I repeat! I AM PRO-VACCINE/ANTI-NEUROTOXIN, as is Robert Kennedy Jr. Please read the following article and book"

Ryan Reynolds

Birthplace: Vancouver, Canada
Everyone has been poking fun at Reynolds this week because his wife, Blake Lively, made a little tongue in cheek Instagram post. She posted a picture of her kissing a giraffe with a caption that read, "...that time I went girl on girl. #CouldveDoneWithALittleLessTongue". A few weeks back he was criticized for holding his baby daughter 'wrong'. Just something to talk about.

Rachel McAdams

Birthplace: London, Canada
She's currently dating Taylor Kitsch now that they've grown close on the set of True Detective. She's in the movie Southpaw which will be coming out soon. And fun fact, did you know that McAdams and Gosling didn't get along when they filmed the hit movie, The Notebook!? The movie was hugely successful but Gosling demanded that they replace her due to a lack of chemistry and the two didn't get along from day one.

Seth Rogen

Birthplace: Vancouver, Canada
Most watched Rogen play the comedic neighbor of Zac Efron in the movie, 'Neighbors'. He always seems to be the perfect funny stereotypical guy from the suburbs. Last week, Chilean director and writer Sebastian Silva announced that he really didn't think that Seth Rogen's comedy was funny. He claimed that branding actors as comics is a "very American thing".

Pamela Anderson

Birthplace: Ladysmith, Canada
The most exciting thing about Pamela Anderson these days are the clothes she wears to the LAX airport. Very few reports have come out about the Playboy superstar and Baywatch actress. She still looks like a barbie doll and she's doing her best to prevent aging. Lately she's been an animal rights activist and she arrived to the 'Unity' premiere in a corset.

Justin Bieber

Birthplace: London, Canada
Oh are you a belieber? Bieber seems to be loving life as of recently now that his new music video for 'Where Are Ü Now" just debuted. The song is about Selena Gomez but that's obvious. Bieber went to a church conference in Sydney, Australia this week and was spotted with the marks from 'cupping'. A procedure he likely copied from Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow which reduces fluid buildup and increases blood flow.

Ellen Page

Birthplace: Halifax, Canada
She's currently in NYC filming new movie Tallulah. Ellen page also reveled in an interview that she wish she would have come out as gay sooner. She's become a huge activist for LGBT rights and she was thrilled at the recent ruling in the United States that same sex couples can now marry in all 50 states. She also is working on a Lesbian Drama called 'FreeHeld' as she tries to make the show more mainstream. She's a busy girl!

Donald Sutherland

Birthplace: Saint John, Canada
Many of you may recognize him as President Snow in the Hunger Games Trilogy! His character in the movies are truly perfect for the movie adaptation. With Mockingjay Part 2 coming out in November, he will get a good amount of new press. Julie Christie revealed all about her sex scene with Sutherland last week...You'll have to google that one for yourself.

Celine Dion

Birthplace: Charlemagne, Canada
The Canadian version of Whitney Houston is doing better than ever. She's got a show at Caesar's Palace where she wants all fans to send in videos of themselves performing her song, "I Drove All Night". She'll have the videos woven together to be shown at her concert. She has 40 performances between August 27th and January 17th. You have until July 25th to send in a video!
