Instagram makes it easy to admire and envy the world’s biggest stars. There’s no shortage of evidence that the good life is good, from A-list movie stars to major musicians to pro ball players and comedians who have their own sitcoms. On rooftop bars, at exclusive clubs, at backstage parties, and at restaurants where regular people can’t make reservations, they post pictures of themselves with other big shots.
Nonetheless, the vast majority of these celebrities were born and raised outside of Hollywood, rising to stardom from humble beginnings in ordinary small towns and cities across the country.
