Tyler Perry is one of the most successful actors, directors, producers, and writers in the world. When he's looking for inspiration, he doesn't go to Hollywood, he goes to Wyoming.

In a recent interview, Perry discussed the secluded cabin he's owned for nearly 15 years. "There's nothing around and it's free. Your whole mind is free. I can be with God," he told HipHollywood.

The media mogul also credited the Cowboy State with helping him create ideas for his various television and film projects. Since Diary of a Mad Black Woman debuted in 2005, Perry has appeared in or produced in 30 movies. He's also directed and produced eight television series and has amassed a personal fortune over $600 million.

Perry now splits time between his residences in Atlanta and Los Angeles and vacation homes in the Bahamas and Wyoming.
