Native Texans know exactly why we are happy to have been born and raised here in our great state of Texas but apparently, celebrities are starting to catch on as well! Every now and again I hear a story of a new celebrity who decided to leave their celeb life and settle down in a much more calm, peaceful, not-so-fast-paced environment. 

Understandably and with good reason. Maybe some have decided that it's better to raise a family here, some need a getaway from time to time a vacation retreat in the Lonestar State, and others come here to retire.

Whatever the case, how cool would it be to run into the star of 1 of your favorite movies?
