What is the Aries personality like?
Today we take a look at 21 famous Aries celebrities. Aries are born between March 21 and April 19. This zodiac sign belongs to the Fire element of astrology, along with Leo and Sagittarius. The symbol of Aries is a ram, representing a courageous and fiery nature.
Aries are known for being trailblazers, which makes a lot of sense given they are the first zodiac sign. They are brave, independent and decisive.
Aries make great friends and they are natural leaders. They love to give advice and there is always some fun to be had when hanging out with an excitable, spontaneous Aries.
However, things aren’t always so positive and the bullish nature of Aries can also lead them to be hot-headed, aggressive, and stubborn. Aries aren’t ones to turn their back on a fight, and more often than not, they even enjoy it.
People with the Aries zodiac sign are typically switched-on when it comes to business and they are naturally entrepreneurial. For example, Victoria Beckham, who has topped the charts with her music career as one-fifth of the Spice Girls, is also a top fashion designer with a multi-million dollar empire.
Aries have a flair for being bold and creative. From Lady Gaga, who makes fearless fashion choices, to Elton John, who is one of the best-selling artists to date and still touring at the age of 75, Aries are passionate, career-driven people who love to be in the spotlight.
Aries celebrities: 21 famous people born with the Aries zodiac sign
Lady Gaga (March 28, 1986)
Lady Gaga is one of the most iconic Aries celebrities. She is unbelievably charismatic, enthusiastic, and career-driven, all typical traits of an Aries. There isn’t anything Lady Gaga can’t do, and she usually prefers to stand out from the crowd as she does it. Aries are clever people that enjoy being in the spotlight, and there is no place where Lady Gaga looks as comfortable!
Lil Nas X (April 9, 1999)
Lil Nas X is a fiery Aries and we love it! He is bold, fierce, and goes after what he wants. He is the first openly gay Black man to be up for a Grammy. Lil Nas X is an inspiration as he creates controversy and discussion through his music surrounding real issues both within the music industry and the wider world. In true Aries fashion of enjoying a good old argument, Lil Nas X said he has “fun pissing people off”. But Lil Nas X has good reason for doing so, as most of his aggression is directed towards calling out homophobic hate speech on his Twitter.
Reese Witherspoon (March 22, 1976)
Reese Witherspoon is an Aries. She has a fearless nature which means she is passionate when it comes to her career, relationships, family, and friendships. As an Aries, she is a natural leader. From her book club to her acting career, Reese jumps headfirst into her project, and obviously ends up smashing them all!
Elton John (March 25, 1947)
Elton John is one of the most famous Aries ever. In a similar fashion to Lady Gaga (literally), he is a natural in the spotlight. He makes bold clothes choices that reflect his personality. From his infamous glasses to his incredible stage design, Elton John doesn’t hold back. As one of the most iconic musicians to ever exist, Elton John defines the word ‘extra’ in the most brilliant way, and that is some serious Aries energy for you!
Kourtney Kardashian (April 18, 1979)
Kourtney Kardashian is the ultimate Aries. She pretty much ticks all the stereotypical personality traits of an Aries: she is passionate, stubborn, decisive, hard-working, and last but not least, she absolutely loves being touchy-feely with people she really cares about. Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen that Kourtney and her fiancé, Travis Barker, love a good PDA moment, whether it’s on the red carpet or by themselves on the beach, they love it, and we love to see!
Alec Baldwin (April 3, 1958)
Alec Baldwin is a typical Aries in many ways. Most noticeably in one of his more unhealthy personality traits of being hot-headed and aggressive. Alec Baldwin has been known to lash out both physically and verbally on many occasions. He has been arrested for punching someone in the face over a parking spot, he punched a photographer in the nose when they got too close to his daughter, and years later he was overheard firing insults at said daughter and his ex-wife.
Mariah Carey (March 27, 1969)
Mariah Carey is an Aries, and proud. She tweeted a picture of herself and other fellow Aries celebrities with the caption, “Happy birthday/anniversary to all my fellow March Aries divas! ❤️” Aries are known for being blunt, and Mariah Carey is no exception to this. With a reputation for having some serious attitude and demands, we respect that Mariah Carey doesn’t compromise. And anyway, bluntness can sometimes just be extreme honesty, which Aries respect above all else. So when Aries season hits you can find Mariah Carey celebrating “anniversaries not birthdays, because I celebrate life, darling.”
Robert Downey Jr. (April 4, 1965)
Robert Downey Jr. is an Aries. Most famous for his role as Iron Man, AKA Tony Stark, Robert Downey Jr. has a strong-headed nature and certainly isn’t afraid to speak his mind and say it how it is. People relate Tony Stark to Robert Downey Jr. not just by the gorgeous, ruggedly handsome looks, but also by the deep confidence, wit, and playfulness of his character. He is irreplaceable as Iron Man, according to the director and many fans, because he is Tony Stark and Tony Stark is Robert Downey Jr.!
Emma Watson (April 15, 1990)
Emma Watson is an Aries. She is a more level-headed Aries with a calm aura. However, Emma Watson is no stranger to speaking up for what she believes in. She is passionate, determined, and courageous when she feels people are wronged. Emma Watson is a proud feminist and an advocate for gender equality, often delivering talks around the world on the subject.
Pharrell Williams (April 5, 1973)
Pharrel is an Aries celebrity. He and his uncle, a pastor, set out to create the world’s greatest gospel choir in their hometown in Virginia. The focus was on diversity too, to get people involved of all ages, genders, backgrounds, and ethnicities. They called the choir ‘Voices of Fire’. Pharrell is such an Aries that he joined a song with Big Sean and Mike Will Made It called “Aries (YuGo).”
Kate Hudson (April 19, 1979)
Kate Hudson is a typical Aries. She is passionate, fierce, and excitable. Kate Hudson posted a photo of herself behind a fire with the caption, “In my element 🔥 #Aries”. It is a fire sign after all! She also posted a photo of a quote that read, ‘I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m going. Are you coming with me?’ with the caption, “An Aries must have said this ♈️ #2018ResolutionInspo”! A true Aries and proud!
Heath Ledger (April 4, 1979)
Heath Ledger was an Aries. Like a true Aries, he was an incredibly passionate man in all aspects of his life. He was passionate about acting, his daughter, and probably surprisingly for some… chess! His deep love of acting and his hard-working nature meant he could play such a range of characters. From Ennis Del Mar in Brokeback Mountain to Joker in The Dark Knight, Heath blew people away with his amazing skills.
Lily James (April 5, 1989)
Lily James is an Aries. She is incredibly goal-oriented, whether that be her career, her health, or her relationships, Lily doesn’t give up. She spent days, if not weeks, studying videos and images of Pamela Anderson to be able to accurately portray her in the series ‘Pam & Tommy’. On top of this, she spent months training her body to be more reflective of Pamela Anderson’s and she spent hours every day in hair and make-up to perfect the look. We have a lot of respect for her efforts in portraying Pam!
Jonathan Van Ness (March 28, 1987)
Jonathan Van Ness is one of the most Aries celebrities out there. Bold, independent, determined… I could go on. Interestingly, JVN wrote in an Instagram caption, “I’ve never understood astrology. I once signed up in college for astronomy thinking I would learn the truth of my Aries heart… it was a lot more math and a lot less about my sun sign than anticipated. Ever since, I’ve been beyond interested and wanted to learn more.”
Anya Taylor-Joy (April 16, 1996)
Anya Taylor-Joy is an Aries celebrity. In true Aries fashion, she is fearless and confident, although she does have another side to her. As one of the fastest rising stars in Hollywood at the moment, Anya Taylor-Joy is incredibly career-driven. From her breakthrough acting role in The Witch, to Peaky Blinders, to Emma, and most recognizably, her leading role in Netflix miniseries The Queen’s Gambit, Anya has been acting since she was 16 and can play a wide array of characters. She’s already won a number of awards, including a Golden Globe, and, in 2021, Time named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Hugh Hefner (April 9, 1926)
Hugh Hefner was an iconic Aries celebrity, Nobody could argue that Hugh Hefner didn’t live a life full of passion, excitement, and energy, particularly within the walls (and Grotto) of his Playboy mansion. Hugh Hefner was a natural leader, having founded playboy in 1953 at the age of 27, he led the controversial charge of transforming the adult content and porn industry, like a true Aries ram. He was brave enough to push the boundaries in this famously conservative era, and his determination and motivation made him one of the most iconic American businessmen to date.
Victoria Beckham (April 17, 1974)
Victoria Beckham is an Aries. You can’t be one-fifth of the best girl group and the best-selling British group ever without ambition, determination, and motivation. Victoria Beckham has all of those qualities… and more! Aries are born entrepreneurs and Victoria Beckham is no stranger to this. With music charts not being the only place she found herself at the top, Victoria was named first in the list of Britain’s top 100 entrepreneurs in 2014. Victoria and her husband, David Beckham, have multiplied their millions and turned them into $1bn.
Quentin Tarantino (March 27, 1963)
Quentin Tarantino is a controversial Aries. Infamous for his screenwriting and directing of unique, violent, and witty films, he seems like an Aries to us. You have to be fiery and passionate to create such dynamic and distinctive films to such a high standard. But that’s not where the controversy ends. Quentin Tarantino has found himself in hot water a number of times. The hot-headed director has allegedly spat on Uma Thurman and he continually shows a disregard for women, managing to cast himself in scenes where he strangles them… We feel there could be more going on here?
Sarah Jessica Parker (March 25, 1965)
Sarah Jessica Parker embodies the Aries zodiac sign. She has a wide number of talents, none of which are done in half measures either. From acting to Broadway to fashion designer to family to charity work, there is nothing SJP can’t do and do to an exceptionally high standard. Given she has the same love of shoes as her character, Carrie Bradshaw, in Sex and the City, it’s lucky she has lots of occasions to wear them all!
Vincent van Gogh (March 30, 1853)
Vincent van Gogh was an Aries. You have to be a pretty passionate person to paint in the way that Vincent Van Gogh did. He famously said, “I would rather die of passion than of boredom.” which is some serious Aries energy. As a rather hot-headed Aries full of emotions, Vincent van Gogh famously cut off his ear whilst in a fiery arguement with his friend and fellow painter. This incident led him to check into a mental facility where he created some of his most famous work.
Celine Dion (March 30, 1968)
Celine Dion is overflowing with Aries energy. She has unwavering confidence in all aspects of her life. From her bold fashion choices to her ability to belt out a tune at the drop of a hat, Celine Dion and her self-assured attitude towards life make us non-Aries folk pretty jealous! Plus, you have to be full of passion to sing ‘My Heart Will Go On’ in the way that Celine Dion did.
