For some reason, Geminis get a lot of astro-hate. But it’s totally unfounded. Gemini season begins on May 21 and lasts until June 22, and during this time, some of the most talented athletes, musicians, and actors were born. Like, is it a requirement to be a Gemini in order to achieve major success, and I just didn’t get the memo? Anyway, besides being extremely versatile and skilled, Geminis are also known to be highly intellectual, funny, curious, and talkative. However, even these chattery creatures will admit they have flaws. From being indecisive to flaky to straight-up immature, just like everyone else, Gemmys def aren’t perfect.
This mutable Air sign is ruled by Mercury and represented by the Twins. Gems are often stereotyped as two-faced, but in actuality they are really just multi-faceted and complex individuals—so it totally makes sense that as these 20 celebs are Gems.
1 Lucy Hale: Born June 14, 1989
Lucy is such a proud Gem that she got the Gemini constellation tattooed on her right arm, and after posted a pic on Instagram with the caption, “Gemini 4 evaaa.” Need I need say more?

Aly is an American professional gymnast and a two-time Olympian who has won six medals. She embodies the ambition and energy of a Gemini. “I was two years old when my mom put me in mommy and me classes,” she said in an interview with USA Gymnastics. “I always had a lot of energy so it was the perfect fit!”

Angelina is the ultimate multi-tasker. As an actress, humanitarian, and mom, she’s constantly shifting between roles and communities, like any social butterfly Gem.
4 Kanye West: Born June 8, 1977
Kanye, the man, the myth, the legend, admitted that Geminis do indeed create art in a special way. “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,” he told Interview magazine. “But I do think that creative Geminis have, throughout history, been really in tune with those things.” Spoken like a proud Gem. :’)
5 Natalie Portman: June 9, 1981

6 Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: Born June 13, 1986
Okay, Mary-Kate and Ashley obvi embody the sign quite literally because well, they are twins. These two will forever be our Michelle Tanner, but they’re also major fashion icons. See, there’s that duality again!
7 Stevie Nicks: Born May 26, 1948
Geminis have a way with words, so it makes sense that Stevie is a Gemmy. The American singer/songwriter is known for her poetic and symbolic lyrics, and of course, her iconic voice.
8 Naomi Campbell: Born May 22, 1970
This Gemini is multi-talented—along with being a supermodel, she’s an actress, TV host, and has even dabbled in singing.
9 Marilyn Monroe: Born June 1, 1926
Marilyn Monroe embodies the duality that is associated with Geminis. Throughout her life, she took on multiple personas, going as far as changing her name from Norma Jeane Mortenson, to Norma Jean Baker, and finally to Marilyn Monroe.
10 Venus Williams: Born June 17, 1980
Venus is one of the best tennis players in the world. And she has her own clothing line. Oh, and she frequently advocates for women’s equality. There’s that Gemini versatility, once again!
11 Idina Menzel: Born May 30, 1970

14 Heidi Klum: Born June 1, 1973
Bet you didn’t know that this supermodel is a Gemini Sun AND Moon! Like most Gemmys, she is a jack of all trades. She’s a model, TV personality, businesswoman, fashion designer, actress, singer and producer. C’mon, share some talent with the rest of us, Heidi!
15 Brooke Sheilds: Born May 31, 1965
Okay, I know what you’re thinking: it’s not a Gemini trait to have AMAZING eyebrows. But trust me, looking good all the time is actually quite common for Gemmys. Their youthful spirits keeps them from aging, both physically and mentally, and Brooke is no exception.
16 Prince: Born June 7, 1958
Geminis can’t stop, won’t stop. They are always channeling their creative nature, so it makes complete sense that Prince—who pioneered a hybrid mixture of funk, rock, pop, and R&B—is a Gem. All hail this music icon.
