Sofia Vergara, Salma Hayek and Other Celebs Who Are U.S. Immigrants

Happy Independence Day!

In honor of the Fourth of July, check out celebrities who immigrated to the United States.

The list includes Colombian-born Sofia Vergara, Salma Hayek—who was an undocumented immigrant for a short period of time, Dutch former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid, British actress Emily Blunt, Canadians Jim Carrey and Pamela Anderson, Israeli-born Natalie Portman and the Terminator himself and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Yolanda, mother of Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid, became a U.S. citizen in 2013.

“As a little girl, it was always my dream to come to America,” she told E! News. “I am living the American dream every day. I am so thankful. We worked very hard. We worked for everything we have in our life. We worked hard to get where we are today.”

In 2015, Schwarzenegger posted on his Twitter page a throwback photo of him at his swearing-in ceremony.

“Today is one of the proudest days of my life,” he wrote. “32 years ago I became a US citizen. Grateful to be here and give back.”
