The Most Famous Celebrity From Your State

Do you ever feel like your home state is so boring there's no way anyone interesting could have sprung from it? Well, that's hardly the case. All 50 states have birthed numerous people who've gone on to become household names: actors, musicians, politicians, athletes, and more. We rounded up all of the iconic celebrities we could think of from every U.S. state. Then, we studied a few major metrics—number of accolades, Google search data, social media presence (where applicable, and across all channels), box-office smash hits (where applicable, and via Box Office Mojo)—to narrow things down. If someone had an indelible effect on our culture, that scored them extra points, too. Combine this methodology with our own unique expertise as pop culture junkies and we were able to pinpoint the most famous celebrity from your state.
