The state of Oregon, formed in 1848, is said to be the ninth largest state in the entire continent. Journalist Ann Curry, actress and singer Courtney Love, model Holly Madison as well as actress Lisa Rinna belong to the state of Oregon. Holly Madison hogged the limelight after becoming a ‘Playboy’ playmate and the girlfriend of the billionaire Hugh Hefner. Courtney Love has acted in several acclaimed flicks like ‘The People vs Larry Flynt’, ‘Man On The Moon’ and ‘Trapped’. Matt Groening’s ability to sketch caricatures of famous cartoon characters and celebrities within no time has earned him appreciation not just from Americans, but in other parts of the world too. Although all these celebrities weren’t born in Oregon, they share a special bond with the state they grew up. We have listed the names of other distinguished personalities from Oregon.
