It's UN Day, and envoy Angelina Jolie isn't the only American star with dual citizenship

WATCH  | In honor of United Nations Day on Oct. 24, Circa's recognizing the international spirit of U.N. special envoy Angelina Jolie, as well as five additional American-born celebrities who have dual citizenship.

A California native, Jolie accepted Cambodia's 2015 offer for dual citizenship.

Because Olivia Wilde's dad was born in Ireland, she requested and received dual citizenship.

As someone born in Puerto Rico, Ricky Martin already had American citizenship in 2011.

So did fellow Puerto Rico native Benicio Del Toro.

On Nov. 4, 2011, both Martin and Del Toro became dual citizens of the United States and Spain, although their specific reasons for doing so weren't clear at the time. In a statement released in Spanish, Martin was credited as saying that he was "planning for a future within a global community."

According to USA Today, "Spain usually requires new citizens to renounce any other nationality they have before granting them a Spanish passport, but it makes exceptions for people from Latin American countries, including Puerto Rico, which has been a U.S. territory for a century."

Born in New Jersey, Kirsten Dunst announced in 2011 she became a German dual citizen.

Nicole Kidman's birth in Hawaii facilitated citizenship in both the U.S. and Australia.
