Leos are born knowing how to shine and sparkle, so it’s no wonder some of the world’s biggest celebrities have a Leo sun, moon, or rising. Whether they excel in music, movies, sports, or fashion, nothing is hotter than a Leo living out their passion. So scroll down and check out these 12 Leo celebs that are too hot to handle!
The outlandish performances and outfits of Madonna defined a generation of pop, so much so that she and Lady Gaga–fellow fire sun, Aries– have been known to have beef (the thought being that Gaga ripped off Madonna’s style). Leo’s have a lot of style and pride, so it’s only natural that Madonna would want to protect the legacy she’s created over the decades!
When you think of Leo celebrities it’s hard not to think of the triple threat JLO. Jennifer Lopez came onto the scene as a dancer, AKA a Fly Girl, on In Living Color and later moved on to film, debuting as Selena in the biopic of the singer by the same name. Shortly after that, in 1999 Lopez’ music career began with her first album On the 6, and took her all the way to her Vegas residency in 2016. Lopez truly shows us the immaculate glitz, glamor, and star power of a Leo!
Daniel Radcliffe is best known for his role as Harry Potter in the films of the same name. An interesting fact is that the character Harry Potter also happens to be a Leo sun, born on July 31st 1980. Leo is a perfect sun sign for a boy who grows to be far more famous than he ever imagined or intended to be. Surely much the same can be said of Radcliffe who became the highest-paid star in Hollywood when he was still in his teens.
If there is one thing a Leo loves, it’s fashion. Jackie Onassis grew to fame as the darling wife of president John F Kennedy, but aside from being the first lady in the 60’s, Onassis has remained a cultural style icon. One only needs to don a pillbox hat, some pearls, small white gloves, and a pencil skirt to rouse the image of this fashionable first lady to mind.
Leos are known for their flamboyant style, and when it comes to Leo moons, self-expression is a matter of life and death. On the topic of flamboyant celebrities, none has been more wildly expressive than David Bowie himself. From his outrageous costumes to his out-of-this-world music stylings, Bowie is a perfect example of putting your creative Leo moon to good use.
The “it girl” of the 2000s, Paris Hilton was born during a full moon. Aquarius and Leo are polar signs, and Hilton is a kooky Aquarius sun with a fashionable and creative Leo moon. These two signs exude star quality and tend to draw people’s eyes to them, so it’s no surprise that she was the talk of the town in her twenties. Plus, full moon babies love and need attention, and that’s exactly what she got!
You probably know Halle Berry for her acting roles in the 2000s, but did you know that she started her career in beauty pageants? Pageantry is right up the alley of a Leo moon because they are known to feel right at home under the bright lights of the stage. Berry won first runner-up in the Miss USA pageant and 6th runner-up in the Miss World pageant in 1986, but she proved to be more than just a pretty face once her acting career took off shortly thereafter.
World famous football star Christiano Ronaldo proves that Leos are more than just actors and musicians! Yes, Leos love to perform, but they also want to perform well, which is exactly what this Portuguese footballer has done. Ronaldo has both the beauty and the brain, having won 32 trophies in his career, being highly regarded as one of the best (and best looking) footballers in the world!
Arguably the most talented and renowned actress of her generation, Meryl Streep puts her fame-inducing Leo rising to good use in every character she plays. Based on her rising sign, the role of fashion mogul Miranda Priestly in the Devil Wears Prada was likely an easy caricature to play. However, like any Leo, she’s always pushed herself to be the best in her field, winning many awards along the way.
We know that Leo’s tend to be beautiful people who are also driven and talented, and Ava Gardner is no exception. She was scouted by MGM in the early 1940’s due to a beautiful headshot of hers that was hanging in the shop window of her brother-in-law’s photography store. She had never acted, couldn’t sing, and her southern drawl made it almost impossible for the big-time MGM studio execs to understand her, but they loved her and sent her off to Hollywood anyway. That’s some serious Leo start power!
French dancer, actress, and singer Lolo Ferrari knew how to turn everyone’s attention onto her. Ferrari holds the Guinness Book of world records for the largest breasts and the most surgical enhancements, 22 in all with 71 inches in total around her chest. She, unfortunately, struggled with depression and used plastic surgery to help herself feel better, “All this stuff has been because I can’t stand life.” Physical beauty may not have been able to help her, but like a true Leo rising she will always be remembered.
Known for her role as Maddy Perez on Euphoria, Alexa Demie is the walking and talking embodiment of a Leo rising. To her stunning, long, dark, stick-straight hair; to her often imitated, immaculate fashion it’s no wonder that her character Maddy was suspected to be a Leo (we found out in season 2 that she’s actually an Aquarius sun). What you might not know is that a young Demie started her own bedazzled sunglasses line, because everything is better in a Leo rising’s life if they add some sparkle and jewels!
