It's a big month for our friends from the land Down Under. Not only is today Australian Independence Day (cue fireworks), this week actresses Jacki Weaver and Nicole Kidman and actor Geoffrey Rush all learned of their Oscar nominations. There sure are a lot of talented folks from Oz faking American accents in Hollywood, so let's take a look at some of our favorites Aussies of all time.
Origin: Nicole was born to Australian parents in Honolulu, HI, but moved to Sydney, Australia when she was four.
Origin: Keith was born in New Zealand but spent most of his formative years in Queensland, Australia.
Nicole took an extended detour to marry Tom Cruise, but these two native Aussies finally met in 2005 on "G'Day LA," a Hollywood event honoring Australians. They married in Sydney in June of 2006.
