Your favorite stars from the WEST COAST?

14 posts in this topic

Since so many of Hollywood's greatest stars were born elsewhere in the country and made their way to California to try their luck in the film industry, there aren't very many who were actually born in the West Coast.

 

Off the top of my head, I can only think of Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood, Marni Nixon, and Elisha Cook, Jr. (all of them from California).

Can anyone else think of other major stars who were born in the West Coast?

Jeanne Crain, born in Barstow, CA; Robert Redford, born in Santa Monica. I believe Dustin Hoffman was born in LA.

Holly, where does Helena, Montana (Myrna Loy) fit in? And you have to have a thread for Canada, that will be a biggie.

finance - you're absolutely right, Dustin Hoffman was indeed born in L.A.

 

mrroberts - I'm not sure about Montana but let me look into that and maybe it could be possible to create a thread for the whole Northwest.
