Fetty Wap, Frank Sinatra, Kirsten Dunst, Taissa Farmiga & Lauren Cohan are some of the celebrities who hail from New Jersey.

Located on the east coast of the USA, New Jersey is considered one of the most populated states in the whole of North America. Apart from these celebrities, there are many more famous faces who hail from New Jersey. It is also widely believed that it is one of the wealthiest states in the USA, perhaps why people move to this part of America in large numbers every year. Not many know that New Jersey has great historic significance. During recent times, many residents of New Jersey have hogged the limelight for their achievements. Musicians Bon Jovi, Whitney Houston and Paul Simon, Hollywood star Bruce Willis as well as American politician Cory Booker are a few distinguished personalities from New Jersey. Bon Jovi’s evergreen classics like ‘Livin’ On A Prayer’ and ‘You Give Love A Bad Name’ are favorites among even today’s teens. Bruce Willis’ performances in flicks like ‘Die Hard’, ‘Sixth Sense’ and ‘Pulp Ficion’ catapulted him to the status of a bankable star. The place has witnessed many episodes of the American civil war and several other conflicts. Scroll down to see their names, we bet you didn’t know these people belonged to or were born in this American state.
