Fame is a common dream and goal for many people all around the world, and those that achieve it all react differently. Some try to use the money for good or use it for themselves and their family, and some decide to keep striving to stay famous while others just happen to keep in the spotlight. However, some have moved away after getting this attention for one reason or another.
These individuals oppose the usual tendencies of staying in the place they got fame or choosing to migrate towards popular cities for celebs such as New York City, Los Angeles, and so on. Here are some of the celebs who left America after they got famous as well as why they did it.

Ben became heavily familiarized with Canada’s city of Vancouver during his time with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

It’s interesting to learn about the aspects of fame we don’t often think about or hear much about in the news and media. These celebs and their reasoning for moving away from home can help add more knowledge on the habits of celebrities as well as what may happen to anyone that seeks the same idea or happens to get famous on their own.
