Celebrities like Emma Stone, Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande may be recognizable to people around the world, but they all had to grow up somewhere before finding their spot in the limelight.

FamilyMinded looked at where some of the biggest celebrities were born and grew up to determine the most famous celebrity who came out of each state. According to the site:

"...Before they were rich and famous and recognized everywhere they went, they all had to start somewhere. With dreams of making it big, they worked hard, caught a break, and became the stars we see today."

The most famous person from Louisiana is Reese Witherspoon, according to the report. Whether you recognize her from her iconic role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde or from producing films like the newly-released Where the Crawdads Sing, Witherspoon has represented the Pelican State and left her mark on the entertainment industry.

The Oscar-winning actress, who won the Academy Award for best actress for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, was born in New Orleans on March 22, 1976. Though she is Louisiana's most famous celebrity, she also grew up in Tennessee.
