Idaho: Aaron Paul
Birthplace: Emmett
Fun Fact: Though Aaron was born in the Gem State, he and his family moved to California when he was 2 so his minister father could visit multiple congregations. But within five years, the family returned to Idaho, first to a small town called Twin Falls and later to the state capital of Boise, where Aaron graduated from high school ... with plans to return to the West Coast. "I'd been to Disneyland a couple of times and that was the closest I'd been to L.A. But I knew what I wanted to do at a very young age,"the "Breaking Bad" star told Vulture last year. "I think by eighth grade I knew I wanted to be an actor."
