Nellie Furtado, Diana Krall, Pamela Anderson, producer David Foster, basketball star Steve Nash, Kim Cattrall.  

In Burnaby, where I currently reside (suburb of Vancouver)  we have Michael J Fox, Jason Priestley, and Michael Buble.

I didn't know Pam Anderson was Canadian.

Learn something new every day!

I live NEAR Wheaton, Illinois, which is where the Belushi's grew up.  And not far from Wheaton is Glen Ellyn, where I believe Gary Sinise grew up! 

Also, Melissa McCarthy (Molly of "Mike & Molly") grew up in Plainfield, IL, which isn't too far from me either.

Jenny McCarthy, who I just learned yesterday is Melissa McCarthy's cousin, grew up in Chicago, but when she was dating Brian Urlacher, she moved to Geneva, IL, which is just miles from where I work.  Not sure if she's still there, though.

Cindy Crawford is from Dekalb, IL, which is about 1/2 hour or so west of where I work.

The Cusacks are from Evanston, but that's a north suburb, so it's not very close to me.

Billy Corgan, from The Smashing Pumpkins, is from Glendale Heights, IL, which is right smack dab next door to me.

 I live in Vancouver too..... :O... but its WAshington, not BC...  Anyway, we have Greg Biffle (Nascar driver)  other than that, not really sure.  I know that there are famous people from Seattle and Portland, but i really couldn't name any of them..  I just consider them people ya know?  When I was younger, I would go all googly eyed for "famous" people.  Not anymore.. They get paid WAY too much for what they do...  While we have children starving and people that have fought to defend our country living in the streets.  And they are having award shows for themselves getting all kinds of free crap from designers that I will never be able to afford in my lifetime.  Just kinda makes me sick.

I live in Upper N.Y. and a Hockey player from our town we live in now in Ga (SPHL) is from my home town and went to school with my nephews. I also was raised, with a gentleman who became a self man millionaire and was in Forbes magazine. (Unfortunatley his name is John Smith) No kidding!

Quoting Mariagma3:

Oh, yeah, I forgot about Vince Vaughn and Michael Jordan.  Didn't know Mr. T used to live in Lake Forest, though.
