Virgos are loving and nurturing but also deep thinkers who will always analyse a situation no matter what it is. They’re often perfectionists who will strive to be better every time they attempt something. They are loyal and loving friends but can be quick to criticise and even prone to a short temper. Virgos like to be in control and like to keep their good friends close and everyone else at arms length.
Known for a large creative streak, the Virgos mindset is perfect for serious musician types with a little dark side and there are many who’ve made their mark across a range of styles including Van Morrison, Nick Cave, Rick Springfield and Amy Winehouse to name a few.
Some top Aussie Virgos include spin maestro Shane Warne, TV presenter Sonia Kruger, actor Jack Thompson, director Bazz Luhrmann, swimmer Liesel Jones, Formula One champ Mark Webber and comedian Charlie Pickering.
Here’s a list of ten favourite Virgo celebrities.
10 – Pink
Date of birth – 8 September, 1979
Pink is the kind of consummate performer that embodies the intensity of the Virgo mindset. Their nurturing nature is offset by a need for self examination, and a desire to live up to their own, sometimes lofty, expectations.
Classic Virgo quote – ‘I’m never the kind of person who’s sitting at home reading the charts and basing how I feel about myself or even my career on stats. I’ve always based it on, ‘Am I doing the best that I can do?’
9 – Idris Elba
Date of birth – 6 September, 1972
Idris Elba, an award-winning actor, DJ and chart topping musician, displays classic Virgo tendencies with his humility and careful thought about what he does. He approaches new outlets like his music career with a humble attitude that eschews star power in favour of a careful, humble approach.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘Yeah, I know, any time you hear an actor say, ‘I do music’, you cringe. But I want to be gradual with my music. I want to earn my stripes.’
8 – Salma Hayek
Date of birth – September 2, 1966
Academy award nominated Mexican/American actress, Salma Hayek, is another notable Virgo celebrity who has often talked of her nurturing nature and her desire to inspire those around her and be inspired by them in turn.
Classic Virgo quote – ‘I realise now that I’ve hoped to be great – as an actress, as a mother – because I want to embody the greatness of women who didn’t get to be all they could have been. Their dignity, their courage, and their brilliance make me strive to be better. They’re a part of me.’
7 – Zendaya
Date of birth – 1 September, 1996
Euphoria star Zendaya might be the youngest Virgo celeb on our list but don’t let that fool you. She’s a deep thinking individual who told Vogue in an interview that she was an introvert and a control freak. Virgo through and through!
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I’m a Virgo, and I know what I like.’
6 – Liam Gallagher
Date of birth – 21 September, 1972
The irascible Oasis front man might give off the airs of a loutish rock and roll superstar but he’s a Virgo through and through. Driven to succeed on his own terms, loyal to his mates but quick to anger, he might like being in the public eye but doesn’t necessarily like having it thrust upon him.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I am a tender, beautiful and loving guy that happens to slap a photographer now and then because they get in my way.’
5 – Adam Sandler
Date of birth – 9 September, 1966
Despite being a Hollywood superstar, Adam Sandler is a remarkably grounded guy who values his close circle of friends more than the fame and fortune he has achieved just as one would expect from a Virgo.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I’m not comfortable being around too many people. I don’t like being out in public too much. I don’t like going to bars. I don’t like doing celebrity stuff. So most of the characters I play are people who don’t always feel comfortable beyond their small circle of friends.’
4 – Cameron Diaz
Date of Birth – August 30 August, 1972
Virgos are often perfectionists and Cameron Diaz is no different, her mercurial talent and work ethic earning her as much critical acclaim as they’ve bought in fame and fortune.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I think that anything that you do, any accomplishment that you make, you have to work for. And I’ve worked very hard in the last ten years of my life, definitely, and I can tell you that hard work pays off. It’s not just a cliche.’
3 – Sean Connery
Date of Birth – 25 August, 1930
Virgos don’t come much more famous than Sir Sean Connery and celebrities don’t come much more down to Earth. It’s the Virgo knack for thinking about others and displaying empathy that both fires their positive and negative sides.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I never trashed a hotel room or did drugs. I understand if you get caught in a fight, but to take it out on a room that implies some psychiatric disorder. The way I was brought up made me think about the person who has to clean up afterwards.’
2 – Keanu Reeves
Date of birth – 2 September, 1964
The John Wick superstar has always marched to the beat of his own drum and maintained a private life largely away from the spotlight. Like a lot of Virgos he’s a workaholic who likes to be tested by the roles he takes.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I’m a Virgo. I like tasks, I like a puzzle. I like to get good at something.’
1 – Beyoncé
Date of birth – 4 September, 1981
Perhaps the most complete Virgo of our celebrity list is Beyoncé Knowles who combines wholesome sexuality and a nurturing nature with an extreme work ethic and a perfectionist streak. Beyond all the glitz and glamour, she’s humble and is always striving to do better for herself and the people around her.
Classic Virgo Quote – ‘I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.’
