Ed Gein, Liberace, Mona Simpson, Colin Kaepernick & Greta Van Susteren are some of the celebrities who hail from Wisconsin.

Situated in the vicinity of the splendid Great Lakes region, Wisconsin is a nature lover’s paradise. According to various sources on the internet, Wisconsin apparently has around 15,000 lakes. Filmmaker Zack Snyder, actress Heather Graham, Gene Wilder and model Laura Kaeppeler are a few famous celebrities who hail from Wisconsin. Maverick filmmaker Zack Snyder is the man behind Hollywood blockbusters like ‘Man Of Steel’, ‘300: Rise Of An Empire’ as well as ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice’. Laura Kaeppeler was crowned ‘Miss America’ in 2012 and thus, she became the first woman from Milwaukee to hold the title. The 1988 flick ‘License To Drive’ marked the debut of actress Heather Graham and since then there has been no looking back for this talented woman who is one of the most seasoned Hollywood artistes. Listed below are the names of a few other famous celebrities from Wisconsin. The bond these eminent personalities share with their state cannot be described in a few words.
