12 Celebrities Who Live in Arizona
Despite any rumors you may have heard or read, Nicolas Cage doesn't own a home in Arizona, nor does he spend much time here. Ditto for Johnny Depp, Vince Vaughn, and Madonna, for that matter.
Sure, Arizona has more than its fair share of celebrities within its borders at any given time, but they're mostly here for a short visit or to vacay in such stylish locales as Scottsdale or Sedona. However, a number of famous names and high-profile personalities, ranging from athletes to actors, spend much more time here -- including the following celebs who consider Arizona to be their home.

Maybe you've spotted them at a high-end grocery store in North Scottsdale or even at your favorite five-star restaurant. If you haven't, be sure to keep an eye out for any of the stars making up this list, because you might just run into them sometime.
12. Frankie Muniz
If you happen to score something snazzy from local retro boutique Arcadia Vintage, you're likely helping line the pockets of this former child star. Muniz, who traded barbs for years with a pre-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston on Malcolm in the Middle and currently races cars and drums in rock bands, has resided in the Valley with his fiancée Elycia Marie, the owner of the shop, for the better part of the past decade. In 2007, the couple eschewed Hollywood in favor of Phoenix life and we've seen him bombing around town now and again, like when he turned out for our annual Best of Phoenix A'Fare last year at the Arizona Biltmore.

11. Doug Stanhope
When caustic stand-up comic Doug Stanhope isn't touring clubs around the country, he lives with his girlfriend Amy "Bingo" Bingaman in a rainbow-colored domicile known as the "Fun House" in the southern Arizona mining town of Bisbee. Fans of the comedian probably already know this, since he records his outstanding weekly podcast there most of the time and hosts an annual Super Bowl party at the place. Stanhope's also gotten involved with local politics, like when he vociferously protested the inclusion of prayer at a Bisbee Town Council meeting last year.
