Hashtag local angle.

You know how much we love it when a famous person says something nice about Minnesota? Well, it's that time again.

The celebrity in question this time is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, best known for playing Elaine in Seinfeld and Selina Mayer in Veep.

She has been talking to the Wall Street Journal ahead of the release of her new comedy movie, Downhill, in which she stars with Anchorman legend Will Ferrell.

At one point during the interview, the actors are asked for their "most underrated destination in America."

While Ferrell opted for the small, up-and-coming arts hub of Marfa, Texas, Dreyfus had a far better answer.

"The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Minnesota. I went canoeing and I loved it. It is just unfathomably beautiful," she said

Unfortunately, she didn't elaborate any more than that, leaving me with the unenviable task of trying to find more content to make your click worth your time.

I trawled her Instagram page to try and find some proof of her visit to the BWCA, but drew a blank and instead just found myself exceptionally jealous of her life.

In any case, if celebrities are looking to get away from it all and not be pestered by fans, you pretty much can't beat the Boundary Waters, most of the million-plus acres of which can only be accessed by canoe/portaging.
