These are the celebs who aren't always included the typical "celebrities with homes in Washington State" lists.

I'm even guilty of it; I've written countless articles on the subject because I find it fascinating for some reason. As if these aren't just regular people who happen to own a home in one of the coolest states to live in America.

Washington is a rather lovely and unique place to live, but I digress.

Fan girl, stan, or not, it's pretty neat to find out one of your favorite actors, musicians, artists, chefs, writers, and fill in the blank celebrity category live here amongst us in Washington.

Let's go down this rabbit hole together!

Alex Borstein: Vashon Island

You love her as the voice of "Lois Griffin" on Family GuyShe also has a starring role on the acclaimed TV show, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. 

I’m old enough to remember when she was a hoot and a holler on the skit comedy show, MAD TV. (I'm from Tennessee; we say things like "a hoot and a holler.")

Although Alex Borstein is not a full-time Vashon Island resident, every now and then, she’ll post photos of her enjoying her PNW coastal abode.

Eddie Vedder: Seattle

I think everyone knows by now that Eddie Vedder still lives in Seattle, but did you know he's a huge Seattle Kraken fan? (So am I. Take a number, pally!)

Pat Monahan from Train: Issaquah

Pat Monahan gets the best of both worlds, he says.

He gets to live life unrecognizable as an "ordinary" family man living in Issaquah, then gets to hit the road and be a huge famous rock star when the band gets back together for a tour.

Pat even got to throw out the first pitch at a Mariners game back in 2010!

Salma Hayek: Yelm

I didn't expect to find out that actress and billionaire, Salma Hayek, owns a ranch in Washington state!

Sadly and shockingly, a few years ago, her pup, a beautiful German Shepherd, was found deceased on her ranch.

She says he was killed by "a shot close to his heart." I hope they found out who did that! RIP, little Mozart!

Salma Hayek dog Mozart RIP!

Salma was concerned about the wildfires we had here in Washington state a couple of years ago.
