17 Times Canadian Celebrities Did Very Canadian Things

It’s no secret that Hollywood is filled with Canadian celebrities. Though they may be living among us, it’s not that hard to pick them out of the crowd. After all, they can still get very patriotic about their motherland up north.

To honor of Canada Day, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite Canucks doing very Canadian things. From getting Tim Hortons to generally being just a bunch of nice and polite people, here are 17 times Canadian celebrities showed their true red-and-white colors.

Toronto Maple Leafs jersey? “Soar-y”? Bonhomme de neige? Yes, please!

A Canadian icon and a not-so-good one. (You be the judge of who we’re referring to.)


3. Seth Rogen tweeting about Drake and CanCon

For those of you who didn’t major in Communications at a Canadian university (they don’t just call them “colleges” there), CanCon is derived from the Broadcasting Act of Canada, stating that radio and television broadcasters must air a certain percentage of content that was at least partly written, produced, presented, or contributed by Canadians. In other words: It’s a good thing Drake exists or else they’d be stuck with Nickelback up there.


4. Will Arnett giving a super intense speech about the Leafs

Canadians take their hockey very seriously. Like, very seriously.

Yes, they have football up there. No, they don’t call it a “beanie”.

You know you’re a Canuck when you take your girlfriend to have dinner with your family at the most Canadian chicken chain ever.
