When it comes to that miscreant Justin Bieber, neither Canada nor the United States seems to want the kid, if Olympic hockey billboards are to be believed.

He's Canadian, just for the record. Sorry, you're not perfect after all, Canada.

Other famous faces, however, actually bring honor and pride to their countries of birth, so much so that America would gladly claim them for her own.

Many stars born elsewhere who work primarily in the U.S. seek dual citizenship, and that's actually pretty neat if you think about it. They love us! They really love us!

They seem as American as apple pie, but plenty of your favorite stars weren't born here at all. See 29 examples below ... and you'll never believe #29:

Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman, nee Natalie Hershlag, was born in Jerusalem in 1981. She has dual citizenship in the United States and Israel.

Rumors that Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are headed for divorce have been circulating for several weeks now.

Portia completed a rehab stint back in May, and sources close to the couple have claimed that she sought treatment after being issued an ultimatum by Ellen.

De Rossi reportedly displayed violent tendencies while drunk, and after numerous fights (which Portia may have videotaped), Ellen reportedly got fed up and demanded that Portia quit drinking.

Now, it seems that Ellen's behavior may have actually triggered Portia's excessive boozing.

A friend of the couple's tells In Touch that Ellen "had an affair with one of their mutual friends right before Ellen's rehab stint in May." The insider adds that Ellen's infidelity prompted Portia to embark on a disastrous bender.

According to various reports, Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres may be headed for divorce.

And in what could be even worse news for the talk show icon, de Rossi may have been in the habit of covertly videotaping the couple's violent fights with the goal of exploiting Ellen should they ever break up.

"Portia secretly taped some of their fights. She was drunk," a source tells In Touch. "Then she threatened to expose Ellen as controlling and manipulating."

The insider claims DeGeneres flew into a rage when she discovered de Rossi's scheme and proceeded to smash Portia's phone to ensure the footage wouldn't get out.

Sources say Ellen and Portia are currently struggling to save their marriage and de Rossi recently completed a stint in an alcoholism treatment facility.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi married in 2008 and have appeared to be the perfect Hollywood couple ever since.

Now it seems as though their sunny public appearances may have been masking some serious serious marital troubles:

Ellen and Portia Party

In Touch reports that Portia checked into a Malibu treatment facility in May to try and kick her drug and alcohol addictions.

Her decision to seek help was reportedly the result of a realization that her bad habits were destroying her marriage.

"They got into an ugly fight," a source tells the tabloid. "Portia hadn't been happy for a while and was drinking and isolating [herself] and Ellen confronted her. Portia lost it and blamed Ellen for driving her to drink."

The magazine claims that Portia sought treatment just days after that blow-out fight.

What's in a name? As it turns out, maybe everything.

Since Shakespeare first posited the question in Romeo and Juliet, actors have been using fake names to land professional roles. Not only did it allow them some semblance of privacy before the dawn of Wikipedia, but let's face it, some people just aren't born with great names.

Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor? Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta? Quite a mouthful.

If an actor or musician's entire career is dedicated to being someone else - a character or personality, perhaps - then a good stage name can go a long way to making that career explode.

More celebrities use pseudonyms than you might think. In fact, here are 67 stars who don't use their real names. Which ones did you know before viewing this gallery?

Lorde
Musical sensation Lorde was given the name Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor at birth. We'd probably go with Lorde, too.

Someday, the following list will not be necessary.

Someday, celebrities will not need to make any sort of official announcement regarding their sexuality because, quite simply, no one will care and society will be fully accepting of all orientations.

But that day hasn't arrived yet, for reasons explained so eloquently by Ellen Page when she came out as a lesbian on Friday:

Perhaps these stars can make a difference. Maybe they can positively influence others struggling with their sexual identity, using their public platform to push for tolerance.

So, with all that in mind, we join many in Hollywood in saluting Page and other famous folks who are very out and awfully proud:

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi don't seem like a couple in trouble.

After all, they just released a Christmas card, one in which the stars make like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in that tandem's absurd "Bound 2" music video.

But tell that to Star Magazine, which claimed last week the marriage between Ellen and Porta is "crumbling."

And enter the following, perfect, hilarious response by DeGeneres.

“There’s not one ounce of truth to any of it. I’m very happily married. In fact, the only thing we ever argue about is who loves who more," Ellen said of her union to de Rossi, adding:

Karen Sjoden, a 49-year old who claimed she was working as a private investigator, was arrested early yesterday morning for trespassing on the property of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.

Police say the woman was discovered hiding under cushions on the couple's deck at approximately 5 a.m., with a spokesman adding: "She was placed under private person's arrest and was transported and booked at BHPD for trespassing and prowling."

Kate Upton on Ellen

Bail has been set at $200,000.

Why such a high figure? Because Sjoden appears mentally unstable.

Authorities found a "rambling letter" on her person, one that referenced Hillary Clinton, Dolph Lundgren, Warren Buffet, telepathy and aliens.

Said Sjoden's daughter, Kayle, to Radar Online: "It doesn't surprise me about Ellen DeGeneres because she's mentioned people in her conspiracy theories before... no one took it seriously because she was never a harm to anybody. Now, it's obvious that she needs treatment for her mental issues."
