Although celebrities have the ability to get in contact with pretty much anyone around the world, a lot of the times they tend to stick within their circle, and not date too far outside of it. There is the odd famous person, however, who might end up dating a fan, or even marrying someone from another country. Here are 6 famous Canadians who married American celebs.
Of course, a lot of American women who are married to Canadian hockey players made the list (what girl doesn't go through a "hockey guy" phase?!), but we've also got film producers, and singers as well:
