Without Geminis, your group chat would be quiet, the party would be boring, and your social media feed would be dry AF. Still, of all the zodiac signs, Geminis truly seem to be the ones most often read for filth. Born approximately between May 21 and June 22, and symbolized by the celestial twins, Geminis are often described as two-faced, flaky, and immature. However, it’s just in their curious and dualistic nature to be multiple things at once — just like these celebs who are Geminis below. The playful twins may be misunderstood because of the quickness by which they change their minds or their countless creative pursuits, but the truth is they’re just here to live and experience as much as possible as often as possible. FOMO? They’ve never heard of it.

These jacks of all trades really do see both sides of the story, even though it seems like they’re contradicting themselves. And, since they’re ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, they’re like a living breathing news feed, in on all the latest gossip, all the latest trends, and very happy to brief you on what happened last night. Geminis are air signs, which accounts for some of their detached behavior, but when you’re able to get their attention, they are some of the most loyal and dedicated friends you’ll ever find. In further defense of the celestial twins, here are some of our favorite celebs who are Geminis and how they exemplify the intellectual, charismatic, and life of the party nature of the star sign.

The supermodel, born May 22, 1970, is known equally for her style and sass. It’s also safe to say you wouldn’t want to be on her bad side, but she’s a model so like, she physically doesn’t have one. Famously fiery and not afraid to speak her mind, this Gemini reminds us there’s nothing wrong with embracing all sides of your personality.

We kind of see Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as the mascots of the zodiac because they clearly understood the assignment being that they’re not only born under the Gemini sign but they’re literal twins. Born June 13, 1986, they’ve achieved legend status in both the entertainment and fashion industry, and though it may seem a little on the nose (I mean, even their company is named Dualstar Entertainment Group), this duo of Geminis was born to share their constant evolution and consistent creativity with the world.

Born May 29, 1972, the actress, activist, and red carpet host has always shown off the Gemini-esque trait of versatility. From speaking out for the LGBTQ+ community to taking on roles in Promising Young Woman and Orange Is the New Black, watching Cox succeed in navigating multiple spaces and roles at once is a masterclass in multitasking.

Born June 5, 1995, the actor, model, and Billboard charting artist has no problem wearing his Gemini traits on his sleeve, giving his fans and the internet access to his deepest thoughts and experiences. However, he also has no problem speaking his mind. The star famously shut down an inappropriate interviewer who wanted to know way too much about his personal life, reminding us to be kind and that even the most candid Gemini will have no problem flipping the switch on you if you try them!

Love him, hate him, or love to hate him, there’s no doubt that hip-hop icon, fashion mogul, and pop culture mainstay Kanye West is one of the most notable Geminis, and obviously, he’s proud of it. Born June 8, 1977, he once told Interview Magazine, “I'd be biased to think that the community of Geminis is the most consistently in tune with what their spirit is telling them to do or why they have breath in their lungs,” before continuing, “But I do think that creative Geminis have, throughout history, been really in tune with those things.”

As captain of the U.S. National Gymnastic team at not one but two Olympic Games, Raisman has consistently showed us all what leadership and commitment looked like on and off the mat. Born on May 25, 1994, the gold medalist is an activist who’s lent her voice to protect her rights and the rights of others, embracing the passionate passionate and energetic way of being Geminis are known for.

Awkwafina

If you’re looking for someone with hilarious, charismatic, life of the party Gemini energy, look no further than comedian Awkwafina who was born June 2, 1988. From her critically acclaimed film The Farewell to her perfect example of loyal wing-woman energy in Crazy Rich Asians, she’s got the creativity, charisma, and playful nature that magnetizes us to our Gemini friends.

The actress, producer, and director, known lovingly for her role on the NBC behemoth of a sitcom, Friends was born June 15, 1964. From helping her daughter cover Taylor Swift songs on Instagram, to getting emotional while reuniting with her cast mates, Cox has made it clear that she contains multitudes, not to mention the Gemini trait of always being down for a good time.

Chris Evans

Born June 13, 1981, the actor known best for his role as Captain America and for donning the perfect cable knit sweater in Knives Out, is a Gemini through and through. From kindly responding to Lizzo’s drunk DM to umm ... accidentally sending messages of his own, Evans exudes the sometimes chaotic always charming communication skills of our dual minded friends.

Normani

Geminis are well-versed in the art of reinvention, so we’re not surprised this star staged a comeback early in her career. Born May 31, 1996, Normani got her start as a member of X Factor act Fifth Harmony. However when the group separated, she made the most of it, successfully launching her career as a solo pop artist with standout songs like “Motivation,” “Love Lies” with Khalid, “Dancing with a Stranger” with Sam Smith, “Diamonds” with Megan Thee Stallion, and “Checklist” with Calvin Harris and WizKid. She has proven her Gemini star power with an impressive run on Dancing with the Stars and with jaw-dropping live performances at the MTV Video Music Awards and the Savage x Fenty Show.

Equal parts actress and activist and born June 4, 1975, Angelina Jolie is a quintessential Gemini. Highly intelligent and able to shift into multiple roles at once (who else could play the part of a sinister villain in Disney’s Maleficent while also standing before United Nations to defend human rights?), Jolie is skilled in the textbook Gemini art of consistently evolving her career while staying curious about the world around her.

In a very Gemini like move, English actor Casey Mulligan born May 28 1985, embodied the perfect good girl turned hell bent revenge seeker in Promising Young Woman, a role that saw her receiving an Academy Award Nomination for Best Actress. Despite the acclaim, she never went to film school and told Harpers Bazaar she figured she had to do the homework to get where she is, but turns out in true twin fashion the risk paid off and she killed the assignment anyway.

Here’s to all of our beloved Geminis, may they always have their birthday cake and never miss out on eating it too.
