11 non-American celebs that will blow your mind

It doesn't get more patriotic than 2000 Revolutionary War flick "The Patriot" -- but both Mel Gibson, 59, and the late Heath Ledger are Aussies. Well, kind of. Gibson was born in the U.S. and raised down under.

The seriously sexy Charlie Hunnam, 35, showed off his hot bod and hardcore leather in FX’s biker gang drama "Sons of Anarchy." And although he was like the badass boy next door who rode a hog and drank Miller High-Life, in real life, he's a proper British bloke who's probably more into riding a Vespa and drinking a Pimm's cup.

What a game-changer! Ryan Gosling, 34, and Rachel McAdams, 36, may have stolen our hearts as star-crossed-lovers from South Carolina in the film "The Notebook" -- but both of America’s sweethearts are actually Canadian.

Oh boy, Michael Cera, 27, killed it in the American classic teen flick "Superbad" and cult classic TV show "Arrested Development, but he, like many Hollywood stars, is Canadian.

Christian Bale, 41, was an incredible in "Dark Night," and we guess Batman's husky voice veiled his English accent well! Hey, they never specified where Gotham City was, anyway.

Jack Bauer may have spent a whole lot of time making sure the U.S. was safe from terrorists in the hit show "24," but the man who played him, Kiefer Sutherland, is the double whammy: a British-born Canadian actor.
