Many celebrities seemingly show up in Hollywood from out of nowhere, and it’s easy to assume that the majority are from small towns throughout the Midwest who come to Los Angeles to make it in the entertainment industry. While there certainly are many celebrities who grew up in unassuming American towns, there are also a shockingly huge amount of Canadians in Hollywood. You probably wouldn’t even know, unless you were a super fan or happened to catch a particular comment during an interview where they refer to their home and native land.

So, why are so many Canadian cuties going down south? Well, simply put, the opportunities. Most of the women on this list got their start in the Canadian entertainment industry, either on television shows or with smaller roles in movies. However, eventually, their desires outgrew the Canadian market and they tried their hand at success in the states. You’ll recognize every name on this list, thanks to their A-List status and string of successful television shows or movies. Though many make their home in sunny Los Angeles nowadays, they were raised in Canada – although many still love their home country and own property up north as well.

From maple syrup to Tim Hortons to great hockey players, Canada has given the world a lot, including these 10 drop dead gorgeous women. You’re welcome, America.

Calgary-born Elisha Cuthbert got her start in Canadian television as a teenager, hosting the children’s series Popular Mechanics for Kids. She moved around as a child, from Toronto to Greenfield Park, Quebec, and eventually moved to Los Angeles at only 17. It proved to be a smart choice – about a year after taking the risk, she got the role of Kim Bauer on 24, and quickly rose to stardom. Cuthbert has since starred in comedy series Happy Endings, as well as in several movies. However, one only had to take a look at her husband to see her Canadian roots – she’s married to hockey player Dion Phaneuf, proving that you can take the girl out of Canada, but you can’t take the hockey-loving Canadian out of the girl.
