50 Celebrities Born in 50 States: A Nationwide Guide

Though it may seem like otherwise, celebrities aren't always mass-produced robots built inside dimly lit factories in the outskirts of Hollywood. In fact, just like the rest of us, they happen to come from all the country -- everywhere from Alabama to Wyoming. (The founding fathers really should have considered adding a "Z" state for dramatic effect.)

Did you know that Kyle Chandler was actually born in Buffalo, New York? Or that Demi Moore is from New Mexico, of all places? No? Well, click through the gallery to discover these and 48 other surprising birth places of Hollywood's most famous faces. (Please do it. That graphic took me over an hour to make.)
