Oakley Learn To Ride Bali - Day 1

Florida: Ashley Greene
Birthplace: Jacksonville
Fun Fact: The "Twilight" actress, 26, grew up a self-professed "beach-bum in Jacksonville," but it wasn't all sun and fun for the actress. "When I was 15, I worked at a dry cleaner because I wanted Abercrombie & Fitch jeans," she told Seventeen magazine. "My mom told me I could have $20 jeans, not $70 jeans, unless I was willing to work for them. I got a job so I could buy the clothes that I wanted." After graduating early at the age of 17 (she's a smartie!), she moved to L.A. to chase her dreams — and it was a big adjustment. "I actually cried the first time I drove on the freeway there," she told Lucky in 2012. "It was raining, and it was so different from Jacksonville, and I just freaked out. I didn't get back on the freeway for a month!"
