9 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were from the South
Some celebrities (ahem, Reese Witherspoon) are unabashed in their Southernness. Others, it turns out, are a bit more subtle. Here, nine celebs we had no idea hailed from Georgia, Tennessee and the like.
Julia Roberts (Smyrna, Georgia)
She is really good in Southern family dramas…
Jennifer Garner (Houston, Texas)
And her family moved to West Virginia when she was a kid. Double Southern!
George Clooney (Lexington, Kentucky)
His mom was a beauty queen, because of course.
Sandra Bullock (Arlington, Virginia)
She spent a bunch of her childhood in Nuremberg, Germany, but still.
Julianne Moore (Fayetteville, North Carolina)
Coulda fooled us on 30 Rock.
Steve Martin (Waco, Texas)
Well, that explains the banjo thing.
Ryan Seacrest (Dunwoody, Georgia)
Does his accent come out when he’s drunk? We’ll find out…after the break.
