America is the home of the brave, and the land of the free—but it also happens to be the land where most Hollywood celebrities prefer to live.
Unless they’re on an extensive European vacation or seek out privacy and serenity that only a tropical vacation can provide, you can pretty much find most celebrities living their lives in the United States, regardless if they’re American or not.
Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that the United States has and will always be the place to live if you want to make it big in the acting and entertainment industry. But likely, it’s to do with the fact that most aspects of the industry are based in the United States.
