If you need help getting things done, and getting them done well, may we suggest
finding the nearest Virgo? Symbolized by the Virgin Maiden, those born under this sign — between approximately Aug. 23 and Sept. 22 — are known to be grounded, detail-oriented, and hardworking, like many of the celebs who are Virgos on our list. Virgos don’t mind living in the present moment, and many people born under this earth sign have a desire to serve others, thanks to their sensitive hearts and endearing loyalty to those closest to them.

Virgo’s traits, they’re organized, brainy, and great at finding practical solutions to any issues that arise. Observant, adaptable, and wildly efficient, it’s no surprise that many Virgos end up in the entertainment industry, or even involved in philanthropic work, where their inner drive, hyper-focus, and ability to execute huge projects successfully comes in handy. However, it’s good to remember that Virgos don’t play around when it comes to getting things done. They like a good routine and they want to stick with their plan, so if you want to spontaneously surprise them, you might want to check their calendar first.
Here are 25 stars who exemplify the pragmatic, diligent, and thoughtful nature of their Virgo sign.
Zendaya George Pimentel/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 1, 1996
Born Sept. 1, Zendaya is an archetypal Virgo. From working hard while simultaneously starring in
Euphoria and Spider-Man to keeping her dating and personal life private, and even helping others through multiple causes, she completely embodies her star sign. Zendaya also shows off her sign when it comes to her style, meticulously planning red carpet looks (I mean, the light-up gown, anyone?) and telling Cinderella-inspired Met Gala she prefers doing her own makeup for a very specific reason: “I do it best when I do it myself. I’m a Virgo and I know what I like.” Yep, spoken like a true Virgo. Vogue Australia Prince Harry Samir Hussein/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 15, 1984
When it comes to being candid and straightforward, Prince Harry — whose birthday is Sept. 15 — has really been leaning into his Virgo propensities. Whether it’s
through his memoir or that infamous sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, he has not shied away from getting into the details of his life when he feels they can help others. He’s bravely spoken up about causes that are important to him, like when he put mental health to the forefront while sharing his experience with therapy. Getting candid about its importance in an episode of , he said, The Me You Can’t See “That’s why I’m here now. That’s why my wife is here now. Without therapy, and without doing the work, we would not be able to withstand this.” Also, as a loving father and husband, he has that Virgo trait of being loyal down to a science. Nicole Richie Amy Sussman/BBMA2020/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 21, 1981
Nicole Richie is such a Virgo that she got a tattoo to symbolize it. She
explained the meaning of her wrist tattoo to E! News in 2014, sharing, “I am a Virgo so when I was 16 I thought, ‘Ooh I’m going to be different and I’m going to put virgin, because the Virgin is the sign for Virgo.” Born Sept. 21, she’s also talked about how detail-oriented she is thanks to her sign, telling , “I’m a Virgo and I’m really good at scheduling and need to know every single inch of everything that’s going on.” But tattoos and direct quotes aside, she also embodies her sign when it comes to staying close to loved ones (like her little sister, who is also on our list) and being the hardworking fashionista behind the The Independent brand House of Harlow 1960. Lili Reinhart John Shearer/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 13, 1996
Born Sept. 13, there’s no question that Lili Reinhart embodies her Virgo energy. How else could she star in the CW’s hit series
Riverdale while also acting in huge films like Hustlers? She also stays keenly aware when it comes to the details of her career (like that bizarre time someone impersonated her during an interview with ). She also showed off her Virgo trait of only sharing information when and how she wants to, like when she Seventeen waited to come out as bisexual until after her split with Cole Sprouse, in order to avoid biphobic comments about her being in a relationship with a straight man. One of the best ways Reinhart shares her Virgo energy is by confidently showing up as her full self. Beyoncé David M. Benett/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 4, 1981
If you Google the phrase “hardest working women in the entertainment industry,” we’re sure it won’t be long
before a photo of Beyoncé pops up, and her Virgo traits are likely responsible for that well-earned title. Many Virgos are perfectionists, and as fans who’ve seen the “Formation” singer on stage or watched her work toward her Beychella performance in her Netflix concert film know, the word “settle” is not in the entertainer’s vocabulary. Born Sept. 4, another way Beyoncé shows off her Virgo energy is by keeping her private life private, and only opening up when she decides to (though it’s safe to say you shouldn’t mess with the star unless you want Homecoming a whole album written about it.) Nick Jonas Daniele Venturelli/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 16, 1992 Nick Jonas was born Sept. 16, so it’s not surprising that he often shows off his stoic, responsible, and reliable Virgo side, especially when it comes to his career. One very Virgo trait the Jonas brother shows off is his penchant for being picky. He’s not known to lower his standards when it comes to his work or who he decided to spend his life with. He’s also super selfless and is always engaging with fans, like the time he pulled over to surprise someone he saw wearing a Jonas Brothers T-shirt. Plus as his hit songs, memoir, and documentary Chasing Happiness have proven, he’s not afraid to work hard when it comes to creating his dreams. Keke Palmer Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 26, 1993 Keke Palmer celebrates her birthday on Aug. 26, and judging by her very Virgo energy-powered career, she’ll have a lot of reasons to party. The Hustlers star even released a song called “Virgo Tendencies” in 2020. When asked about what Virgo tendencies were by Pride , she said, “Perfectionist. We can be a little bit neurotic. We’re workaholics. And we’re very straight up and honest. We don’t want any confusion! But we’re very sensitive, people don’t realize that. Whenever we say stuff, we’re not trying to fight anybody, we just want to be real and get it out of the way because it makes us uncomfortable.” She went on to say, “I think I’m a Virgo to a tee. I’m really, really, really a Virgo. I really relate.” Blake Lively Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Padma Lakshmi Steve Granitz/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 1, 1970
Despite her success, Padma Lakshmi tries to stay grounded. Born Sept. 1, the
Top Chef host once re-wore a dress to the Emmys, sharing later that it seemed “wasteful” not to enjoy the dress more than once. Making the practical choice to wear it again is a total Virgo move. Another Virgo tendency Lakshmi has is being able to get into the details like she does while interviewing American immigrants in her series Taste the Nation . Lakshmi is also family-focused, consistently reminding reporters who ask about her relationship status that raising her daughter, Thea, is her first and most important priority. Sydney Sweeney Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 12, 1997 Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney was born Sept. 12, which may explain why she comes off as reliable, responsible, and confident about what she wants. Speaking with Elite Daily in 2019, Sweeney shared what might be one of the most Virgo interview quotes of all time: “I just love to work.” It also explains how she’s made time to star in the HBO miniseries The White Lotus while also announcing the new show The Player’s Table and returning to her role on one of HBO’s most successful series. And, when she’s not busy working, she has the Virgo habit of leaning into intellectual activities, like constantly reading new books and even hosting her own book club. Bebe Rexha Emma McIntyre /AMA2020/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 30, 1989
Born Aug. 30, Grammy-nominated singer Bebe Rexha is Virgo energy in human form. She’s driven, ambitious, and not afraid to use her perfectionist personality to create what she wants in life,
because as she told Bustle, “If it’s on my mood board, it will all happen. That’s what I’ve learned.” She isn’t afraid to be meticulous when it comes to what she wears, either, and she owns her body type despite what people may think a pop star should look like. And though she still has the drive of a Virgo, she also told Bustle that she hopes to slow down more, sharing, “Even at the age of 16, I was so driven. I was always like, what’s next? What’s next? Why am I doing this? Why can’t I be doing this? I wish I would have just enjoyed the journey more. I would tell myself to take a deep breath and slow down.” Sofia Richie Daniele Venturelli/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 24, 1998
Like big sis Nicole, who is also on this list, Sofia Richie is a quintessential Virgo. Born Aug. 24, the influencer, model (for big brands like Chanel and Michael Kors), and
ex-girlfriend of Keeping Up With the Kardashian ’s star Scott Disick knows how to work hard and stay busy, thanks to her social media savvy and driven personality. The star has been honest about her desire to put her passion where her hardworking Virgo energy is, sharing with Entertainment Tonight last year, “I feel like, for a while, I kind of held back on things because I was afraid of failure, but 2020 is [the year of] no fear! I’m gonna be doing acting stuff really soon.” Kobe Bryant Alexi Rosenfeld/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 23, 1978
Widely known as one of the greatest basketball players of all time,
Kobe Bryant was perhaps the hardest-working Virgo on this list, and that’s really saying something. The superstar athlete and Oscar winner (a fact many people have already forgotten) was born on Aug. 23, 1978, and his lifelong pursuit of being perfect on the court is easy to understand when his astrological sign is taken into consideration. Bryant passed away in a helicopter crash in January 2020 with several others, including his daughter Gianna. Sara Ramirez Jamie McCarthy/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 31, 1975
Sara Ramirez and Callie Torres, the character they played on , claim some Virgo qualities. Nurses and doctors can’t do their jobs well unless they are patient and kind, and those are just a few of the traits that made Ramirez so lovable in the show. The actor flexes their creativity, another hallmark of Virgos, through not only acting, but music as well. In addition to their many roles, including most recently in the Grey’s Anatomy reboot Sex and the City , they have also released a self-titled EP and they’ve succeeded on Broadway. And Just Like That Ava DuVernay Emma McIntyre/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 24, 1972 Ava DuVernay is a perfect blend of two of the most prominent features shared by Virgos. She’s incredibly hardworking, as she is one of the busiest people in the entertainment industry. With countless projects on TV and film running simultaneously — not to mention how many more in development — the filmmaker is always on the grind. She’s also creative, as she’s not only found work in a field that requires that quality, but she has reached the highest highs in the incredibly competitive space, where only those with outside-the-box thinking rise to the top. Candis Cayne Santiago Felipe/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 29, 1971
From her early days in the New York City club scene as a drag performer to her current status as an in-demand actor, activist, and role model for the transgender community,
Candis Cayne has easily demonstrated that she is kind, hardworking, and even after all her success, still grounded. The former talent’s work as an activist proves that she finds contentment and purpose by contributing to something other than her own career, which is something Virgos are known for. Grey’s Anatomy Jungkook The Chosunilbo JNS/ImaZinS/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 1, 1997
One of the seven members of global boy band
BTS, Jungkook has to be one of the hardest-working people in music. The Grammy-nominated group releases new singles and albums constantly, and they drop so much music, it makes many Western pop stars look lazy by comparison. A quick look at the septet’s social media, as well as his own solo page, shows he’s still grounded and knows how to have fun, even though he’s one of the most famous musicians on the planet right now. Gloria Estefan Shy McGrath/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 1, 1957 Gloria Estefan’s success in the music business is truly incredible, and her longevity makes her stand out as one not just one of the most accomplished Latin artists ever, but a steady hitmaker throughout the years. For nearly two decades, she was a reliable producer of major singles and bestselling albums. Estefan released quite a bit of music during her lengthy heyday, and her hard work hasn’t stopped since. Now, she co-hosts Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk: The Estefans, a spinoff of the original series, which was made popular by Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow, and the actor’s mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris. Idris Elba David M. Benett/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 6, 1972
Like so many other Virgos who are able to create a career for themselves in the entertainment industry, one medium isn’t enough for the possible future
James Bond. Idris Elba is mostly known as an actor in major films and TV shows like The Wire, American Gangster, and Marvel releases like Luther, Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Avengers: Infinity War, but that’s not his only creative outlet. He is also a DJ, producer, and rapper with some serious credits. Ludacris Scott Legato/Getty Images Birthday: Sept. 11, 1977
After becoming one of the top players in the hip-hop genre with dozens of hit singles, a number of top albums and several
Grammy wins, Ludacris decided to try his hand at something else. His creative urges took him to the movie industry, and he hit it big with his first major role in 2 Fast 2 Furious. Since that title premiered back in 2003, the rapper has co-starred in five more movies in the series, to say nothing of the many other credits now included in his filmography. It seems that like many Virgos, whatever Ludacris dives into, he goes all the way. Chris Pine Amanda Edwards/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 26, 1980
Virgos are notoriously critical, and
Chris Pine is no different from the rest. The movie star has spoken about his tendency to critique himself, and while he attributes his actions to being an actor, it’s also perfectly in-line with his astrological sign. “As an actor, it is easy to be so self-critical, saying to yourself, ‘Am I good enough? Am I good looking enough? Am I smart enough?’” one of Hollywood’s best Chrises is credited with saying, which is difficult to believe, because … look at him! Melissa McCarthy Steve Granitz/FilmMagic/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 26, 1970
It took a long time for
Melissa McCarthy to go from a struggling actor to a major player in Hollywood, and her dedication to sticking to her craft and pouring in the work to make it is admirable, and a surefire sign she’s a Virgo. The experience of having to wait as long as she did has also likely kept the talent grounded. Even though she’s an Nine Perfect Strangers Emmy winner and a two-time Academy Award nominee, she’s still a very real and lovely person. Taraji P. Henson Birthday: Sept. 11, 1970
Most actors who have managed to keep their careers in Hollywood going for decades are incredibly hardworking, so it’s not shocking that quite a few are Virgos.
points out that in addition to her critically adored work on the screen, Women’s Health Magazine Taraji P. Henson is “a perfectionist when it comes to being trendsetter in the realms of beauty and style,” another indicator that she perfectly embodies her sign. Rupert Grint Gary Gershoff/WireImage/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 24, 1988
Somehow, despite becoming wealthy and famous at such a young age, the three main stars of the
have all managed to remain level-headed and grounded. That’s no easy task for those who get an early start in Hollywood, and it might be thanks in part to their astrological signs, or at least Harry Potter film series Rupert Grint can claim so. The former Ronald Weasley, who is planning on revisiting Hogwarts with his friends in HBO Max’s highly anticipated reunion special, is still working to this day, even though he definitely doesn’t need the money. Marsha P. Johnson Alexi Rosenfeld/Getty Images Birthday: Aug. 24, 1945
Unlike almost everyone else on this list of famous Virgos,
Marsha P. Johnson isn’t known for her acting or singing abilities, but rather for the work she did to improve the lives of members of the LGBTQ+ community, especially for people of color. The founding member of the Gay Liberation Front, ACT UP participant and nicknamed the “mayor of Christopher Street” found a lifelong purpose by contributing to something much larger than herself, a hallmark of a Virgo.
Cheers to Virgos, and may their days be as loving (and organized) as they are!
