21 Famous Celebrities with the Cancer Zodiac Sign

What is the Cancer personality like?

Today we take a look at 21 famous Cancer celebrities. Cancers are born between June 21 and June 22. Cancer belongs to the Water element of astrology, along with Scorpio and Pisces. The symbol of Cancer is the crab, which represents a protective nature with a soft inside.

Cancers, just like the symbol of the crab, are renowned for having a tough outer shell and it can take them a while to let their guard down. However, underneath the surface, they are full of emotions.

Cancers are one of the most caring and protective zodiac signs with heightened levels of intuition. These personality traits make them incredibly loyal and Cancers make the most amazing friends.

They feel deep empathy towards other people. This is because they are so in touch with their own feelings too. Princess Diana, nicknamed the ‘People’s Princess’ is a perfect example of this. On her charity missions around the world, Princess Diana showed kindness and compassion to people from all different backgrounds

Cancers are the ultimate homebodies. Essentially, they enjoy stability, and dislike change! They enjoy comfort and coziness. So, with their heightened intuition, Cancers can pick up even the slightest change in their surroundings and the people they are with.

Unhealthy personality traits of people with the Cancer zodiac sign are their tendency to be over-emotional and overly sensitive which can then manifest into deep insecurities. They are also known to use their emotions as a weapon by manipulating people into getting their way.

From Selena Gomez, who sings about her heartbreak and self-esteem issues in her music, to Post Malone, who openly cried on stage during a performance and uses his music to express his feelings, Cancers use their heightened sense of emotions and channel this into their creativity.

Cancer celebrities: 21 famous people born with the Cancer zodiac sign

Ariana Grande (June 26, 1993)

Ariana Grande is the ultimate Cancer celebrity. Cancers are notoriously emotional and creative. And when you combine those two personality traits, you basically have Ariana Grande’s music and lyrics. From her song ‘thank u, next’ to her cover of Mariah Carey’s song ‘Emotional’, Arianda Grande embodies this zodiac sign to a tee. She once asked her Twitter followers a very relatable question for a typical Cancer, “Oooof do Cancers have the ability to do anything other than feeeeeeeeel feel feeeeeeeel feel feeeeeel.”

Post Malone (July 4, 1995)

Despite what you might think based on first impressions, Post Malone is a Cancer through and through. Not one to hide how he feels, Post Malone is often vulnerable with his emotions and shows his fans how he feels. He cried on stage during a performance in 2020 and he has also posted to his social media accounts a picture of him crying with tears rolling down his eyes. Postie also pours his heart and soul into his lyrics, with famous songs ‘Better Now’ and ‘I Fall Apart’.

Selena Gomez (July 22, 1992)

Selena Gomez is another singer exploding with Cancer energy. She puts her absolute all into her music and her emotions shine through. Her song ‘Lose You To Love Me’ about her ex, Justin Bieber, is a powerful example of Selena Gomez pouring her heart and soul into a song. In true Cancer spirit, Selena Gomez is emotional and she is incredibly open and vulnerable about these emotions when she chooses to be. As a true protective and loyal Cancer zodiac sign, Selena explained to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, “I found myself protecting people who didn’t really protect me because I didn’t want to start anything.”

Elon Musk (June 28, 1971)

Elon Musk is a Cancer. Just like a Cancer, he is intuitive, compassionate, and proficient at reading people and situations accurately. People with the Cancer zodiac sign typically have an active imagination and are very creative types. Whether you love him or hate him, you can’t argue that Elon Musk, the richest man in the world, isn’t creative. He’s sent people to space, created the Tesla brand and next on his agenda is the takeover and privatization of Twitter. There are no limits to his imagination and what he can do, which is why he is achieving the results we see today.

Meryl Streep (June 22, 1949)

Meryl Streep is an iconic Cancer celebrity. As one of the greatest actors of her generation, she is full of wise words and has a deep level of empathy for people, like a true Cancer. She captioned an Instagram photo of herself with, “The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy, we can all sense a mysterious connection to each other. 💙” This is one of the most Cancer quotes we’ve heard!

Jacob Elordi (June 26, 1997)

Jacob Elordi is a rising star with the Cancer zodiac sign. He is incredibly different from his infamous Euphoria character, Nate Jacobs, who is most likely an unhealthy Scorpion. Jacob Elordi is kind, caring, and feels emotions deeply. He is incredibly intuitive and, just like a Cancer sign, he is a bit of a homebody. As an Australian living in Los Angeles, he often feels homesick and misses his family.

Margot Robbie (July 2, 1990)

Margot Robbie is a Cancer celebrity. She is engaging and charming. Cancers are the ultimate homebodies and, while they enjoy meeting new people, they also love chilling at home in a clean and tidy space. This is the case for Margot Robbie as a Cancer. A friend of Margot Robbie’s explained to E! News, “When Margot isn’t working she is really a homebody and wants to be at home in her sweats with her husband. You won’t find them out at trendy hotspots too much.”

50 Cent (July 6, 1975)

50 Cent is a Cancer. Cancers, just like the crab itself, have a hard exterior. They are a tough shell to crack and that is definitely the vibe we are getting from 50 Cent. There aren’t many people in this world who could be shot NINE times and survive (let alone thrive) afterward. He was shot all over his body, including his face and chest, and was out of hospital 13 days later. It was then after this incident that 50 Cent’s music career took off. I don’t think anyone could argue that he doesn’t have a hard exterior (literally!).

Princess Diana (July 1, 1961)

Princess Diana was one of the most iconic Cancers ever. She was, and still is, known all around the world for her compassion and empathy towards people (typical personality traits of a Cancer). These acts of compassion and kindness were predominantly seen through her charity work. Princess Diana devoted herself to serving others, especially those without a voice. She worked with over 100 charities in her lifetime. From homeless and disabled people to people with HIV/AIDS, Princess Diana wanted to leave the world in a better place than she found it, and that she did!

Nikola Tesla (July 10, 1856)

Nikola Tesla was a famous Cancer. Just like Elon Musk, Nikola Tesla was a futurist and one of the greatest inventors of all time. Recently, the popularity and interest of Tesla, the car company, have contributed to the revival of Nikola Tesla, as the company and cars were named after him. Cancers are creative people, which is a core skill required to be as great of an inventor as Nikola Tesla was.

Khloe Kardashian (June 27, 1984)

Khloe Kardashian perfectly embodies the Cancer zodiac sign. She has always appeared to be the toughest of the Kardashian sisters and isn’t afraid to confront people. However, Khloe definitely has a softer side to her. She was born to be a mom and she has an abundance of love for her daughter, True Thompson. In true Cancer form, Khloe is a massive homebody. She has confessed she has OCD when it comes to mess, dirt, and anything out of place in her home. She keeps it to the highest standard all the way down to her pantry and her infamous oreo jars.

Jaden Smith (July 8, 1998)

Jaden Smith is a Cancer zodiac sign. He is highly intuitive. People of the Cancer zodiac sign typically go with their gut rather than looking for tangible, verifiable information. The actor, who is full of deep thoughts and emotions, once said, “When you think about an apple, you also think about the opposite of an apple.” If this isn’t a completely random but totally intuitive thought, we don’t know what is!

Lana Del Rey (June 21, 1985)

Lana Del Rey is a Cancer. For many years, Lana Del Rey was thought to be a Gemini. She is born on the summer solstice and her assumed birth time was around 2 am, which is on the cusp of the Gemini-Cancer season and would actually make her a Gemini. However, in 2019, Lana Del Rey set the record straight and confirmed that she was born at 4.47 pm which means she is definitely a Cancer (and a Taurus rising!). Given Lana’s emotion-filled music and lyrics, we can’t say we are surprised!

Nelson Mandela (July 18, 1918)

Nelson Mandela was a famous Cancer. True to his sign, Nelson Mandela went above and beyond to help those he loved. He was selfless and dedicated throughout his lifetime, by fighting to bring liberty and justice to his people, and he also risked his life for equality. Nelson Mandela had a unique ability to empathize with people around him. He famously said, “People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

Aubrey Plaza (June 26, 1984)

Aubrey Plaza is a Cancer celebrity. In typical Cancer fashion, Aubrey is highly intuitive. She trusts her instincts and is skilled at seeing patterns between things that other people might miss. It can take a while for Aubrey Plaza to let her guard down and let people in. She said herself, “I’m not a super emotional person, so that’s one reason I love acting – it makes me deal with myself in that kind of way.”

Ricky Gervais (June 25, 1961)

Ricky Gervais is a Cancer celebrity. You need creativity to be a comedian, and Ricky Gervais is one of the best out there. Although it’s fair to say Ricky is a little skeptical when it comes to horoscopes and astrology. In 2012, he tweeted, “When someone reading the horoscope page in a paper asks me my star sign I always give the wrong one. They read it and make it fit perfectly.”

Pamela Anderson (July 1, 1967)

Pamela Anderson is a Cancer. She is passionate, caring, and loyal, just like people with the Cancer zodiac sign. Pamela Anderson has experienced a number of different hardships in her life yet she has thrived in these situations and used them to her advantage. In terms of her loyalty, Pamela Anderson felt Hugh Hefner was a huge reason for her success. Following his death in 2017, Pamela was heartbroken. She said of his death, “I am me because of you. You taught me everything important about freedom and respect. Outside of my family. You were the most important person in my life.”

Priyanka Chopra (July 18, 1982)

Priyanka Chopra is a true Cancer. She is romantic, generous, and loyal. Loved up with her husband, Nick Jonas, she is always sharing images with cute captions of the couple. Priyanka Chopra goes above and beyond to help those that she loves as Cancers are the most devoted and caring zodiac sign. Cancers are known to be the most maternal. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas recently welcomed a baby girl via surrogate and we’re sure she will fit the Cancer stereotype and be the best mom.

Chris Pratt (July 3, 1962)

Chris Pratt is a Cancer celebrity. Cancers are typically family-oriented people, and that goes without saying for Chris Pratt. Only yesterday did he return home from filming Guardians of the Galaxy 3 to a cake from his kids that read, ‘WELCOME HOME DADDY!’ alongside the caption, “That’s a wrap. Grateful to be home.” which Chris Pratt shared with his Twitter followers.

Kristen Bell (July 18, 1980)

Kristen Bell is a Cancer. As a Cancer, she is engaging and charming. She lights up a room with her positive energy and unique stories. People of the Cancer zodiac sign typically enjoy meeting new people and they greatly value meaningful connections of all kinds. Kristen Bell, as a real Cancer sign, has talked multiple times about how empathetic and caring she is to a point where it hurts her.

Lindsay Lohan (July 2, 1986)

Lindsay Lohan is a Cancer celebrity. Cancers are true romantics and they crave stability when it comes to relationships. It seems that Lindsay Lohan has finally found her ‘One’. She announced her engagement to her fans on Instagram in 2021 after keeping her relationship secret for two years. She practically manifested her fiance as she told Howard Stern in 2019, “I want to date a guy that’s a businessman, doesn’t have Instagram, doesn’t have social media, and is completely off the grid in terms of that kind of stuff.” She’s got her happy ending!
