Evan Peters, Eminem, Matt Bomer, Yogi Berra & Akon are some of the celebrities who hail from Missouri.

Missouri, a state in the Midwestern region of the United States, is situated along the river of the same name. The river Missouri holds the record for being the longest river in the whole of North America and perhaps this is why this state is popular all over the world, not just the USA. It is believed that there are more than 6000 located in this American state. However, the state has several other interesting facts associated with it, apart from its natural wonders. One such fact is that Missouri is home to several famous celebrities who share a special bond with the state. Former American president Harry S Truman, writer Mark Twain, actor Don Cheadle, musician & rapper Eminem as well as pop icon Akon are a few famous celebrities who hail from this American state. Mark Twain’s path-breaking literary works aren’t just a treat to book lovers, but they have also inspired many to pursue a full-fledged career in writing. In fact, each of these celebrities has contributed to the society in several ways. We have compiled a list consisting of names of several celebrities who hail from Missouri.
