It may be on the complete other side of the county, but Hollywood is full of A-list celebrities who hail from New Jersey. Just to name a few, the list includes Bruce Willis, Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifa, Martha Stewart, and Fetty Wap – no need to even mention The Boss himself (you decide if we mean Bruce or James Gandolfini – both from Jersey). But recently, several of our very own New Jersey natives received their stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Since the beginning of 2023, Ice-T, Ray Liotta, the Jonas Brothers, and most recently Michael B. Jordan all cemented their place in Hollywood history and we couldn’t be prouder of these Jersey guys. Read on for more about these hometown heroes gone Hollywood.
