I was just wondering What celebrities you are VERY Proud of that Come from your City...If you live in a city that is small..i.e. NOT LA or Chi-town or NYC...you could do celebrities from cities withing a 60 mile radius...

Chris Farley(SNL and various movies)
Frank Calliendo(MADtv)
Lamont Bently(Moesha)
Bob Ueker(Various Sports movies and Radio Broadcaster)
Matt Kenseth(NASCAR driver)
Chris Tallman(Crossballs, Various Reno 911! apperences)
Gene Wilder(Various Movies)
Jerry Zucker (Producer)
Heather Graham(Various Movies)
Jane Wiedlin(Go-GO's)

and bands

Garbage(appeared on FUSE and various music video stations)
Violent Femmes(Appeared on Sabrina the Teenage Witch and various music video stations)

Well in the state I use to live in, Clay Aiken and Fantasia Barrino where from the same state. Same area too. North Carolina.

As for the state I live in now, I dont know of any celebs that come from the same state because I haven't really done research on that. But I'm sure someone has had to come from here. Right?

Mike Myers (Austin Powers) was born in my part of Toronto. There's even a street they called "Mike Myers Way". Kinda neat.

My state, Queensland, is pretty celebrity-less. The only ones I can think of at the moment are Savage Garden. They come from Brisbane, the big city about an hours drive north of mine.

Well the only celeb that I can think of right now that lived in Pittsburgh was Christina Agulara. She lived here for a couple of years up the street from my parents...of course I wasnt born yet to actually meet her. My third grade teacher said that she was Christina's cheerleading coach for a while.

All of these people lived really close to me at one point:
Andrew W.K. (went to my high school)
Madonna (lived about an hour away, but went to school here)
Jeff Daniels of Dumb and Dumber (still lives very close to me)
Bob Seger (my mom knew him growing up)
Iggy Pop
Also, Domino's Pizza and Borders Books and Music started in Ann Arbor, where I live.

If you're talking about Detroit, which is like 45 mins from me there's:
Eminem
The White Stripes
Frances Ford Coppola
Diana Ross
Alice Cooper
Stevie Wonder
Kid Rock
Sonny Bono
Casey Kasem
Steven Seagal
Anita Baker
Aretha Franklin
Aaliyah
and a whole bunch of others, especially rap/soul music stars.
