Delaware: Ryan Phillippe Birthplace: New Castle Fun Fact: "The Lincoln Lawyer" actor grew up in the First State, where his mom ran a daycare center out of their home and his dad punched the clock at a DuPont chemical plant. As a student at New Castle Baptist Academy, he played soccer and basketball, and earned a black belt in tae kwon do to combat local bullies. Despite running into some trouble in his working class family's "rough" neighborhood, the 38-year-old still loves returning home to visit. His first stop? Capriotti's Sandwich Shop. "For some inexplicable reason, they cannot make those sandwiches anywhere else on the planet," he told Delaware Online in 2008. "Whenever I get back, my mom either has it waiting for me or we go and pick it up."
