It’s not just the Asian pop stars that are representing their countries!

These Hollywood stars just love Asia so much! 

10. Gwen Stefani

While she’s been criticised for her portrayal of Japanese pop culture, Stefani said she didn’t regret her "Harajuku" days! 

"There’s always going to be two sides to everything. For me, everything that I did with the Harajuku Girls was just a pure compliment and being a fan. You can’t be a fan of somebody else? Or another culture? Of course you can. Of course you can celebrate other cultures. That’s what Japanese culture and American culture have done." 

 

9. sofia coppola

With her experience as a 20-something in Japan, director Coppola made a movie out of the experience. You may know the little film, “Lost in Translation” starring Scarlett Johansson. 

8. Chloe Moretz

She always causes a stir when she’s in Korea, she’s also become the first foreigner guest on SNL Korea to read her lines in Korean!

7. Emma Stone

She just can't get enough of K-pop! 

 

6. Edward Norton

Apparently Norton lived in Japan as a 20-year-old and still speaks Japanese well!

 

5. Keanu Reeves

Keanu was in for a treat when he got to meet his favourite actor of all time, Sonny Chiba!

 

4.Tom Cruise 

He loved Korea so much (and the reverse is true, too), that he was made honorary citizen of Busan >< 

 

3. Jack Black

Jack fit it so well with the cast of "Infinite Challenge," that they asked him if they could film at his house in L.A. next time. This is probably one of the moments he won over the Koreans XD  

 

2. Angelina Jolie and Cambodia 

She filmed her breakthrough role “Lara Croft: Tom Raider” there and adopted her first son from the nation.

Ever since, she’s been a huge fan of Cambodia, returning time and time again.

She’s also directing a film there based on activit Loung Ung's memoir, First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia. Jolie's son Maddox is also working on the project with Jolie saying that she wanted her son to know more about his country. 

 

1. Hugh Jackman 

He's loved all over the world but Seoul put dibs on the Aussie actor by giving him "Seoul's Goodwill Ambassador. 

He even got his daughter to wear the hanbok . awww
