This is the Celebrity Ladies Edition.

Did You Know These 14 Stars Used to Live in Washington State_ Neither Did We

For some reason, I have been fascinated with celebrities and Hollywood and have been ever since I was a teen. I think it all started when I began to covet copies of Tiger Beat and Teen BOP magazine.

Here is a copy of BOP magazine from November 1983, some 40 years ago!

Behold below fourteen super stars who once called Washington their home. They left our state for whatever reason--from their parents deciding to pack up ship and move or simply because they outgrew the place and left to go follow their dreams.



There are not that many lady A-List celebrities that remain in Washington, but we have a few cool notables around, like Anna Faris.

If you want to know where some of the now A-listers USED to live in Washington state, check out the gallery below. The list includes a few surprising smaller town cities like Olympia, Renton, Endicott, Colbert, and Woodinville.

When I researched the Washington state connections for each of these celebrities, I was kind of shocked to see most, if not all of them, have been in notable TV, film, and stage roles that I am a big fan of!
