Every day, budding actors and actresses from all over head to Hollywood. Some make it big, others don't. But they come from all over the United States. Thrillist.com undertook the monumental task of ranking the best actor or actress from each and every state. Some names you'll know right away like George Clooney being the pride of Kentucky. Others, you might have to Google. So how about Iowa? I was a bit surprised to see our state's choice, Ben Foster. Not because he isn't a fine actor. He has been amazing in films like The Messenger and 3:10 To Yuma. But I wasn't aware he grew up in Iowa. Foster was born in Boston but moved with his family and was raised in Fairfield, Iowa. He left school at the age of 16 and moved to Los Angeles.
