The Gemini Zodiac Sign
Geminis have birthdays between May 21 and June 20. The Gemini zodiac is an air sign represented by twins. Why twins? It has to do with the constellation and a story in Greek mythology about two twin brothers – Castor and Pollux.

What Are Geminis Like?
Geminis are intellectual and expressive, they have a yearning for knowledge and love socialising! However, their restless personalities can make them quite indecisive and impulsive, and as a result they can be somewhat unreliable at times.
So how does the twin symbol fit into all of this? Well, one of the darker aspects of the Gemini personality is that they can be a little bit two-faced; meaning that they might have a tendency to lie, cheat, and manipulate for personal gain.
Because of this untrustworthy nature, Geminis often get a bad rap on the internet, so it’s important to remember that not all Geminis fit this stereotype. The two-faced nature can also be interpreted as being empathetic and being able to see multiple points of view in an argument.
The Top 10 Celebs That Are Gemini
Because of their adventurous spirit, Geminis have a pretty strong tendency to become artists and public figures. That’s why there are so many musicians, leaders, actors, and actresses born under the twins. Needless to say there are a ton of famous Geminis, so without further ado, here’s our list of 10 of the most ‘Gemini-esque’ Geminis in history!
10. Marilyn Monroe
Date Of Birth: 1 June 1926
Profession: Actress, model, and singer
Most Gemini Trait: Flirtatiousness
Regardless of what her critics thought, this Gemini woman should be celebrated for bravely expressing her sensuality and femininity in a time when female sexuality was frowned upon.
Sadly, Marilyn’s troubled past drove her to desperately try to fill her emotional emptiness with alcohol and drugs. On August 5, 1962, she died from a drug overdose at just 36 years old.
9. Colin Farrell
Date Of Birth: 31 May 1976
Most Gemini Trait: Impulsiveness
Colin is a good example of an impulsive, life-of-the-party male Gemini. When he was younger his lifestyle involved a lot of heavy drinking, partying, smoking, and taking drugs. These excessive habits worsened over time and almost cost him his career.
Luckily he’s recovered from this addictive behaviour, and since then, he has been very open about his battle with addiction and has inspired others who are struggling with substance abuse.
8. Kendrick Lamar
Date Of Birth: 17 June 1987
Profession: Rapper, songwriter, and record producer
Most Gemini Trait: Intellect
In 2015, Kendrick tied the knot with his high school sweetheart – Whitney Alford. Kendrick is the epitome of a committed, passionate, and loving Gemini! Geminis tend to struggle with committing themselves to a partner because of their strong desire for freedom and independence. But it’s very clear that Kendrick found his other half when he fell in love with this raven-haired beauty.
It just goes to show you that once a Gemini really falls for you, they intend to keep you forever!
7. Lauryn Hill
Date Of Birth: 26 May 1975
Profession: Singer, songwriter and rapper
Most Gemini Trait: Indecisiveness
Lauren Hill is one of the most prominent voices of the black community, and she’s a great example of both the good and bad sides of the Gemini coin. One the one hand she’s super creative, and brave, and individualistic. But on the other hand, she apparently has a bit of a short temper and will often show up very late to her performances. Classic Gemini!
6. Chris Pratt
Date Of Birth: 21 June 1979
Most Gemini Trait: Wit and humour
Geminis are all-or-nothing types of people – once they decide to really commit to something, they’re unstoppable. Chris displays this fierce dedication when it comes to changing his whole physique to fit his acting roles; when he was cast as Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy he lost almost 30kgs in a period of 6 months!
5. Donald Trump
Date Of Birth: 14 June 1946
Profession: Politician, businessman, and television personality
Most Gemini Trait: Lying
Trump is the obvious stereotype of the two-faced Gemini! He lies relentlessly to get the upper hand in debates and speaks with incredible confidence. His Gemini traits seem to have worked in his favour since he managed to convince and rally enough people to elect him as the 45th President of the United States despite receiving immense criticism from the media.
4. Kanye West
Date Of Birth: 8 June 1977
Profession: Entrepreneur, fashion designer, rapper, songwriter, and record producer
Most Gemini Trait: Impulsiveness
Nobody is a bigger fan of Kanye than Kanye himself. The self-proclaimed “voice of this generation” is about as Gemini as Geminis get. His bold personality and outstanding confidence has often been misunderstood as arrogance and narcissism, but you can’t argue with his success!
Kanye loves being the centre of attention and never misses an opportunity to speak his mind. He displayed this assertiveness on his notorious on-stage moment with Taylor Swift where he didn’t hold back on expressing what he thought of her winning the MTV Music Video Award in 2009. He received a lot of backlash from the incident but claimed that he saw the experience as a chance to further grow as a person.
3. Tom Holland
Date Of Birth: 1 June 1996
Profession: Actor and dancer
Most Gemini Trait: Enthusiasm
Extremely likeable, quirky, and upbeat; Tom Holland is the type of individualistic Gemini who just doesn’t give a damn what anyone else thinks.
Apparently Tom was bullied in school because he loved dancing and saw it as a means to express himself creatively. But did he quit just to fit in with the crowd? Hell no! Being the badass Gemini that he is, he kept on dancing which eventually led him to star in musicals, which then led him to become one of the most iconic young actors in Hollywood!
2. Iggy Azalea
Date Of Birth: 7 June 1990
Profession: Rapper, singer, songwriter, and model
Most Gemini Trait: Daring and courageous
This Aussie Gemini has had groundbreaking success in her music career as a rapper and songwriter after moving to the US when she was just 16 years old.
Iggy occasionally tweets about her Gemini traits and admits that there are flaws to her zodiac sign. In one tweet, she wrote, “If you wanna know what’s wrong with Gemini, I’ll tell you; we say shit & change our minds all the time (plans, emotions, etc) for literally no reason, we are fake experts at everything & we tell mean jokes then don’t give you space to be mad.”.
This Gemini’s tactless habit of saying and doing whatever she wanted has garnered a lot of criticism! Critics have deemed some of her work as inappropriate, culturally insensitive, and even racist. She’s since reflected on some of her past questionable choices and expressed that, “[some things] You look back at it with love, and there are other things you were like, 'Oh God, I was such an idiot.”.
1. Natalie Portman
Date Of Birth: 9 June 1981
Profession: Actress and filmmaker
Most Gemini Trait: Intellect
Geminis are often naturally academic and love to learn, and there’s no better example of this than Natalie Portman! In 2003, in the midst of her flourishing acting career, Natalie decided to double down on her responsibilities and took on a Psychology degree at Harvard. When asked about this decision, she said "I don't care if college ruins my career...I'd rather be smart than a movie star."
Intelligent, hard-working, impulsive, courageous, and stubborn, Natalie’s a textbook Gemini!
Geminis are one of the most complex and misunderstood zodiac signs. While they can often deserve their mischievous reputation, they’re not sociopathic two-faced demons that the internet makes them out to be. We hope that our list of famous Gemini celebrities has proven that there’s much more to the average Gem’ than meets the eye.
