While we love to flaunt our Northern pride here in good ol' Canada, it's no surprise that others want to visit and really see it for themselves — including celebrities of course!
Whether they were here to visit with family, filming for their latest feature film role, or maybe just taking a relaxing long vacation, here are 8 celebrities you had no idea lived in Canada at one point in their lives.
Circa 1971, Tom Cruise actually lived with his family right here in Ottawa! Rumour has it that his family moved to Canada because his Dad accepted a new position with the Canadian Armed Forces. They lived in Beacon Hill for years before eventually moving back to the US after his parents split.
Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris owned property in Vancouver's Yaletown at one point after falling in love with the area while filming Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. There was lots of talk in 2017 after NPH tweeted about acquiring a penthouse in the area. A few months later he sealed the deal and tweeted about getting settled into his new home, making us all wonder — does he still own property in Yaletown?!
Known to love this Canadian city, Jennifer Lawrence actually lived in Montreal while filming for the 2017 movie Mother! in which she held the lead role. With a price tag of $1.7 million, the apartment is said to be located downtown Montreal at Simpson and Sherbrooke.
Known to frequent Vancouver for his role in The Flash which is currently filming for season six, Grant Gustin has been seen living in the city during production. Typically lasting 10 months at a time, Grant appears to own or rent a condo in Vancouver's West End after posting pictures to his Instagram. I mean, look at that view!
Back in 2008, Halle Berry purchased a cabin-type home in Quebec with her former beau Gabriel Aubry. With a $1.6 million price tag at the time, the cabin was located close to Gabriel's family who lived nearby in Montreal. After she and Gabriel called it quits, Halle eventually sold the property.
In 2011 Mark Wahlberg was the talk of the town after he purchased a $12 million penthouse in the area. The property is apparently located in Hazelton Hotel overlooking Hazelton Avenue in Yorkville. There hasn't been any talk of Mark selling the penthouse just yet, so be sure to keep an eye out for him!
Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell
While they didn't actually live in Canada full-time, the famous power couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have owned property in Muskoka. The couple used to frequent the Lake Rosseau area for years, along with other celebrities like Justin Bieber and Cindy Crawford. Rumour has it, they practically spent every summer there but have since sold the property.
Inspired by his friends Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Tom Hanks also reportedly purchased a cottage home a few years ago in the Muskoka area. He is known to spend his summers there relaxing on Lake Rosseau.
