10 Small-Town Celebs Who Made It Big

by: on | in Celebrities | 25 Comments

Even though our fave celebs are livin’ in luxury, attending all of the hottest red carpet events and indulging themselves in the most delicious foods and trendiest clothes, they def didn’t start out that way. Actually, some stars we can’t get enough of started out in the tiniest towns — yes, we mean stranded out in the middle of cornfields and surrounded by cows.

Before Taylor Swift was famous, she was growing up to be the hopeless romantic country star she is today in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, none of the 10,500 guys there worked out. (Bet they’re regretting it.)

Can you picture new MTV Movie Award winner Josh Hutcherson (or Peeta, our fave type of bread) as a southern boy? Until he was 9 years old, he lived in Union, Kentucky, which has a population of only 3,700 — def not enough people to see his pretty face.

WENN

Gorg Jessica Biel is from a town full of bears, wolves, and a lot of fish — Ely, Minnesota, with a population of 3,500. Can you imagine her and JT going on a camping trip? Nope, us either.

WENN

Justin Bieber, as everyone knows, is a Canadian boy who used to unleash his music on the streets of Stratford, Ontario. Even though his first fans were probs the majority of the 30,886 people that live there, he now has approx 44,071,837. And that’s just on Facebook.

WENN

Ashton Kutcher, who was first discovered in a bar, is one of the 125,000 who live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. And the best part? He still goes back for the ever-so-famous Iowa Hawkeye games. (We sure wouldn’t be paying attention to the game if we were sitting in the stands.)

WENN

Of course Miley Cyrus is from the south, but unlike many of her fellow Nashville natives, she grew up in Franklin, Tennessee, which has a population of 62,500. And, now she’s engaged to the hottest guy, like, ever.

WENN

Oh, how we love our British boys — especially Harry Styles of One Direction. Before he took over America (and our hearts), he was chillin’ in Holmes Chapel, a village — yes, a village — in Cheshire, England.

WENN

Red-headed cutie Bella Thorne loves livin’ in the sunshine. Before Cali, she called Pembroke Pines, Florida her home, which has a population of 154,750. Yeah, we wouldn’t mind laying out all day at the beach either.

WENN

Miranda Cosgrove (who’s totes looking gorg on the cover of Teen Vogue!) is originally from the “Crab Apple Capital of the World.” They must be pretty delish — or at least the other 14,000 people must think so.

WENN

Oh, where would we be without the Jonas Brothers and their sexy skinny jeans? Nick, Joe, and Kevin used to be East Coast boys before moving to L.A., living in Wyckoff, New Jersey with about 17,000 other people.

WENN

If you’re living in a small town hoping to become famous, don’t let the rural life fool you — these stars sure didn’t let it stop them!

    This is a faithful adaipatton of the movie but with some revisions. It is a good movie but it did not give the epic ending. I love watching great books turned into movies. This is one of them.It has a great story about politics, poverty, and corruption. Great movie for our times.

    I think that we have very different definitions of a small town… The town I grew up in had a population of 700 and the COUNTY had a population of 20,000.

    Those are not small towns, they are about medium sized, besides Josh Hutcherson & Jessica Biel. A small town is less than 5,000. Lord knows even 3,000 is big to some of us (that live in a town of less than 1,000).
