Is there any zodiac sign more suited for fame than Leo? The fifth sign of the zodiac is known for their charisma, love of the spotlight, warm hearts, and gorgeous hair. Leos truly thrive when all eyes are on them—if you have a Leo friend, they’re probs obsessed with their Instagram or TikTok follower count, they’re the star of the group chat, and they love a surprise party.
But while Leos are charismatic AF and, yes, have a bit of an ego, they’re also loyal friends who want to make sure their crew shines, too. As fire signs, Leos are extremely passionate, and as fixed signs, they’re natural leaders. They’re ruled by the Sun, and like that big ball of fire, they’re hot, bright, and full of energy… and they tend to think everything revolves around them. To be fair, though, sometimes it does! Leos will take charge of a group project and then suggest you livestream the presentation for all their fans. Yeah, all Leos have fans—even if they’ve never released a hit single or appeared on a 30 Under 30 list, it’s only a matter of time before they find the spotlight they were born for.
There’s no shortage of celeb Leos (born between July 23 and August 23, FYI) and they dominate a wide range of fields. What do Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Jenner, Meghan Markle, Barack Obama, and Madonna have in common? They’re all Leos, of course! Here are a few more of these celeb lions to inspire you or your Leo pal.
Meghan Markle: Born August 4, 1981
The Duchess of Sussex seems at home in the spotlight, sure, but her passion for activism and philanthropy is also a Leo trait. Meghan first became an activist at age 11 when she sent letters objecting to a sexist commercial—and got it changed.
Jennifer Lopez: Born July 24, 1969
Was there ever a more Leo moment than J.Lo purring, “Climb in my fur,” in Hustlers?
Kylie Jenner: Born August 10, 1997
Kylie’s been famous since she was a little kid—how Leo is that? The billionaire seems to be proud of her star sign, selling an aptly-named Leo Matte Lip Kit.
Ben Affleck: Born August 15, 1972
Madonna: Born August 16, 1958
During a Full Moon in Leo, Madonna once tweeted, “Leo’s Don’t Apologize for taking the Road less Traveled By. Happy Full Moon of Leo !! Burn Baby Burn! #norisk #noglory #nofear.” The photo accompanying the tweet? Not the Moon, but a selfie, of course.
Barack Obama: Born August 4, 1961
Barack Obama is the fourth Leo president the United States has had, following Bill Clinton, Herbert Hoover, and Benjamin Harrison. Naturally charismatic and suited for leadership, it makes sense that Leos feel at home in the Oval Office.
Cole and Dylan Sprouse: August 4, 1992
Just like Kylie Jenner, these Leos have been famous for basically their whole lives—not to mention, they have very Leo-like hair.
Maya Rudolph: Born July 27, 1972
Maya Rudolph totally exemplifies Leos’ warm, yet hilarious AF, sense of humor.
Daniel Radcliffe: Born July 23, 1989
Famous around the world before you graduate from middle school? Sounds like a Leo. Fun fact: with a July 31st birthday, Harry Potter is also a Leo.
Joey King: Born July 30, 1999
She made her big screen debut at age seven, so Joey is used to the spotlight.
Joe Jonas: Born August 15, 1989
Jennifer Lawrence: Born August 15, 1990
Outspoken J.Law is definitely a Leo—oh, and did we mention those four Oscar noms?
Shawn Mendes: Born August 8, 1998
Jason Momoa: Born August 1, 1979
So, the stereotype that Leos have gorgeous, lion’s mane-like hair isn’t always true… but in this case, it is.
Anna Kendrick: Born August 9, 1985
The Pitch Perfect star is a triple Leo, with her Sun, Mercury, and Mars all in the sign of the lion.
Elisabeth Moss: Born July 24, 1982
The Handmaid’s Tale star has won two Golden Globes, two Emmys, and two Critics’ Choice Awards, NBD.
Mick Jagger: Born July 26, 1943
Greta Gerwig: Born August 4, 1983
Leos thrive as one-half of a power couple, and whether you’re talking about Greta’s romantic partner Noah Baumbach or her frequent collaborator Saoirse Ronan, she definitely qualifies.
Viola Davis: Born August 11, 1965
Cara Delevingne: Born August 12, 1992
Chris Hemsworth: August 11, 1983
Of course Thor is a Leo! What other sign would he be????
Halle Berry: Born August 14, 1966
Halle Berry’s career has been thriving for over 30 years—we love to see it!
Mila Kunis: Born August 14, 1983
As a teen, Mila Kunis lied about her age so she could land a role on That ‘70s Show. Gotta admire that Leo tenacity in pursuit of the spotlight!
