Hear them roar!
Leo season has arrived and Page Six is dishing on which celebrities embody the zodiac sign symbolized by the lion.
While Leos, born July 23 to August 23, are creative, passionate, and cheerful, they can also be arrogant, stubborn, and self-centered. Unsurprisingly, these qualities can be found in several famous people born under the star sign.
Here is a list of all the celebs who exude Leo energy to a tee.
Jennifer Lopez, born July 24, 1969, shows her Leo tendencies through her talent.
“[Leos] are also the ultimate showmen,” costarastrology.com states. “They can dazzle with the theatrical flair of a Broadway star and the charisma of a politician. They are captivating personalities.”
Lopez is known for her over-the-top performances and specifically made waves when she dazzled at the Super Bowl 2020 Half Time show with her pole-dancing routine.
Leos are also highly ambitious people and there’s no exception for J.Lo. The pop star not only continues to top the charts with her music, but she also started a skincare line in 2020 and she’s even taken on a stake in several business ventures including a Viagra start-up.
But J.Lo also loves like a Leo, making her dating life a tumultuous one at that.
“Falling in love is easy for Lions. But finding a person who can match them and staying in love can be tough,” hososcopes.com states.
Lopez has been married and divorced three times and engaged twice with boyfriends in between. Following her split from ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez in March 2021, Lopez began dating another former fiancé, Ben Affleck.
Ben Affleck, born August 15, 1972, has serious Leo energy.
The actor shines as a Leo through his parenting of his three kids, Violet, Samuel, and Seraphina, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.
“As a Leo parent, you care most about family loyalty, protection and affection,” Babycentre reports. “You’re passionate and genuine in your emotional displays, so your children know when you’re in a warm and enthusiastic mood. Equally, they know when you’re feeling down.”
Affleck is a committed father who has been spotted on several occasions making sure to fit family time into his schedule.
He even went out of his way to bond with girlfriend J.Lo’s kids, recently spending time with her daughter along with his own children.
And like his girlfriend, Affleck’s love life also proves he’s a full-fledged Leo.
“Passionate, intense, and fiery, Leo loves hard. For Leos, love itself—whether falling in love, thinking about love, making love—is one of their favorite things in the world,” horoscopes.com reports.
Meghan Markle, born August 4, 1981, reigns as a true Leo.
“Leo is one of the most controlling signs of the zodiac. Leo is another Fire sign, which means that these people can get heated up if pushed far enough,” cultureastrology.com writes. “Leos are self-confident, arrogant, bold, bossy – they are born leaders who are not afraid to voice their opinions and beliefs. They like things their way and tend to be extremely stubborn when it comes to their opinions or their views.”
As Page Six exclusively reported in 2020, Markle had “taken control” of Prince Harry. The duo ultimately ended up quitting the royal family and moving to California where they have been building an empire.
But Markle also shows her Leo-ness through her strength and honesty.
“Leos, much like their name, are strong, fierce, bold, courageous and regal in their lifestyles, ways and expression,” astrologyk.com writes.
Markle showed her strength when she opened up about her struggles with depression and suicidal thoughts during her bombshell tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021. She also fearlessly spoke out against the royal family, sharing that there were several conversations about her son’s skin color.
Kylie Jenner, born August 10, 1997, has the style of a Leo.
“Designer shades, bling-y accessories, or exclusive gear that you have to special order,” horoscope.com reports. “For Leo, it’s all about labels, and the more recognizable (and Instagrammable), the better.”
Jenner is known for posting sexy photos of herself wearing expensive designer labels and tends to go for a flashy aesthetic. She also wears a lot of custom pieces and even likes to coordinate her expensive style with her daughter Stormi.
But her Leo personality also shows through her insecurities.
“Self-conscious and self-aware, Leos care deeply about how people see them, so they over-analyze themselves trying to make sure they are at the very least, likable and accepted and at the most, attractive and popular,” southfloridaastrologer.com states.
Jenner has spoken openly about how self-conscious she was before getting her lip fillers, even admitting she felt “unkissable” in June 2021.
But her love life also proves she’s a Leo.
“Once in love or committed, Leos are stubbornly loyal and will do anything to protect and encourage their beloved,” according to compatible-astrology.com.
Shawn Mendes, born August 8, 1998, has all the makings of a Leo.
“Leo’s charisma and innate ability to lead guarantee they will almost always be at center stage–a place where they love to be,” psychiclibrary.com writes. “Leos are so full of warmth and optimism it is impossible to not find their company pleasurable. Fearless, powerful and dignified by nature, Leos make great leaders. The force of their will guarantees any task they tackle will be completed.”
Mendes has trailblazed his way through the music industry, starting out by singing covers on the now-defunct Vine app and quickly rising to fame with his song “Stitches” topping the charts in 2015.
And Mendes also has the heart of a Leo, which is evident in his committed relationship with Camila Cabello.
“These lions are natural leaders and they enjoy cultivating friendships and romances that are artistically and creatively inspired,” Allure reported.
Both Mendes and Cabello have collaborated on creative projects, including their hit songs “Señorita” and “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”
And his Leo-like passion is clear considering the couple’s non-stop PDA over the years.
Chris Hemsworth, born August 11, 1983, is a Marvel-ous Leo.
The actor truly shows his Leo ways through his strong commitment to fitness.
“[Leos] know what they want, and they’ll do whatever they have to do to complete their goals. These people also like to keep up appearances, and a big part of that is keeping fit,” zodiacsigns-horoscope.com states.
Hemsworth is ultra committed to staying in shape for his role as Thor. His trainer even told Page Six that the actor eats eight meals a day to stay bulky.
Additionally, Hemsworth’s Leo personality is clear within his brotherly bonds.
“Leo-identities are very caring with their family,” astrology.care writes.
Hemsworth showed how important family is to him when he defended his brother Liam following his breakup from Miley Cyrus, saying he “deserves much better” than the singer. He also spent time with Liam after their breakup.
Cara Delevingne, born August 12, 1992, is a model Leo.
The model’s Leo personality is evident through her dating life.
“Leos love beautiful things and will see your relationship as a beautiful thing too. They see beauty in life and their excitement is contagious. Honest and hard working, Leos usually make wonderful life partners and wonderful parents,” compatible-astrology.com writes.
Delevingne is known for being someone people want to date and has racked up a long list of A-list suitors that have fallen for the loving Leo.
Leos are also extremely loyal to those they’re close with.
“Once you have earned their trust you will have an ally in Leo for life,” Zodiacfire.com states.
The model’s loyalty shined brightly when she defended her ex-girlfriend Ashley Benson when the “Pretty Little Liars” star started dating G-Eazy after their split.
Joe Jonas, born August 15, 1989, lives a Leo kind of life.
One way Jonas has shown his Leo tendencies is through his charitable endeavors.
“Leos love to give. As a fire sign, Leos have a zest for life and enjoy helping others. You’ll catch them lending a hand to others in need and giving not only money but their time and effort as well,” YourTango reports.
Jonas and his wife Sophie Turner notably donated 100 meals to an LA hospital amid the pandemic in April 2020.
And Jonas is equally Leo-like in the way he is in his relationship.
“Leos love to love. They will take advantage of every opportunity to put you on a pedestal as their partner and shower you with encouragement and admiration. Compliments and flattery are par for the course,” tarot.com states.
Jonas is known for speaking highly about Turner and has even gushed over her on social media several times.
And in June 2021, he posted in celebration of their wedding anniversary, writing, “The best two years of my life. Love you @sophiet.”
Madonna, born August 16, 1958, is a Leo through and through.
The “Like a Prayer” singer exhibits her Leo tendencies through her fierceness.
“Leos hate being bossed around. They are very much in charge of their own worlds and their own destiny. Leos are perpetually wounded by the acts of betrayal and abandonment. Their pride is a sword that they wield to protect their sovereignty,” costaraastrology.com writes.
The Queen of pop truly knows how to be a leader and paved the way for several other artists with her artistic creativity and ever-changing stylistic approach to her art.
And her ability to not care what people think about her and to show her authentic self also proves she is an exemplary Leo.
“Leo is probably the most outgoing of all the signs, and because they love adoration and attention, they know how to take center stage anywhere they go,” Vix.com writes.
