Ten Celebrities Who Surprisingly Are Miami Natives

Some Miami-born celebrities never let anyone forget where they're from. Take Pitbull, for example, who just shouts out "305" at least once every 15 seconds.

Other celebs born under the sign of the 305 aren't as conspicuous. For many, that's because they were born here but moved as young kids, and for others, it's because they never looked back once they hit the big time. Yet there are several secret Miamians in the entertainment industry, including multiple Oscar nominees and two veritable punk rock legends.
