This funny guy, born in 1965, totally counts as an Arizonian since he has lived there since he was four.

He grew up in Scottsdale, attended Arizona State University, and only continues to develop his successful career.

Talk about a face to remember! For those of you who are unfamiliar, though the name can be misleading at first, Alice Cooper is a man! Of course, he was born Vincent Damon Furnier. He moved to Arizona at a young age, started his self-named band, and quickly became a rock star! He was often called “The Godfather of Shock Rock,” and he was  known for his macabre stage setups. Catch an Alice Cooper concert and you were likely to see all kinds of eerie things on stage: fake blood, electric chairs, guillotines, poisonous snakes, and swords. If you haven’t heard their hit single from 1972, “School’s Out,” we aren’t sure where you’ve been hiding. All in all, Alice Cooper produced twenty-six total albums, nineteen of them as a solo artist. He is credited with helping to shape the sound of heavy metal and rock and roll alike.

#3 Stephenie Meyer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the past decade, there’s no way you don’t recognize this name. Raised in Phoenix alongside her five other siblings, Meyer quickly became famous when she released her novel, Twilight. This romantic tale based around vampires captured the heart of not only young girls, but many other readers also. Her book quickly became a best seller, and she a best selling author. Twilight became so popular that nearly thirty million copies of it were sold in 2008, and, since its publication, it has been translated into thirty-seven different languages. All of this success, means that Meyer has been ranked on the list of “100 Most Influential People,” and also on the “Celebrity 100” list of the world’s most powerful celebrities.

Since then, she’s stared in hits like Easy A, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Help, The Amazing Spider-Man, and Birdman. Stone has won two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, two British Academy Film Awards, and an Academy Award.
