What is the Capricorn personality like?
Today we take a look at 21 famous Capricorn celebrities. Capricorns are born between December 22 and January 19. This zodiac sign belongs to the Earth element of astrology, along with Virgo and Taurus. The symbol of Capricorn is the sea goat, representing the ability to thrive in all situations.
Capricorns are the rarest zodiac sign. The three least common birthdays globally are Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and Christmas Eve, according to The New York Times. This dramatically decreases the number of people born in the Capricorn season.
Capricorns have a relentless determination to overcome any obstacle that comes in the way of their success. They are focused on their long-term goals and don’t like to let the details bring them down.
Jeff Bezos is a perfect example of Capricorn’s ambitious and hard-working attitude to life. He is the second richest man in the world and he built Amazon, one of the most valuable companies that exist today.
Capricorns can be misunderstood though. They are incredibly loyal people who have big hearts and who are kind. For a Capricorn, blood is thicker than water, and they go above and beyond for the important people in their life.
Unhealthy personality traits of a Capricorn, and the reason people can misunderstand them, is their often serious approach to things. They can come across as stubborn, uptight, and a little dry.
Capricorns thrive in all different environments. From Timothée Chalamet, one of the highest-paid actors in the world at the age of 26, to Dolly Parton, who is dubbed the ‘Queen of Country’, Capricorns have an unrivaled ambition and drive to succeed in any industry.
Capricorn celebrities: 21 famous people born with the Capricorn zodiac sign
Jeff Bezos (January 12, 1964)
Jeff Bezos is overflowing with Capricorn energy. The man has a net worth of $200billion making him the second richest man in the world, behind Elon Musk, a Cancer zodiac sign. Success and money are what make a Capricorn tick, and they will work relentlessly to get this, which is exactly what Jeff Bezos did. The perfect job for a Capricorn is CEO, and nothing screams this more than being CEO of one of the most valuable companies in the world.
Michelle Obama (January 17, 1964)
Michelle Obama embodies her Capricorn zodiac sign. She is elegant, mature, and motivated by duty. Michelle Obama dedicated herself to her country during her time as First Lady of the United States. Like a Capricorn, she has a high drive to succeed, and Michelle has made a whole career for herself. She has a relentless determination to achieve her goals which shows in an understated yet obvious way.
Elvis Presley (January 8, 1935)
Elvis Presley is one of the most famous Capricorns to have lived. He was most commonly nicknamed ‘The King’ by people around the world, which is no easy achievement. Elvis obviously had the ambition, drive, and persistence of a Capricorn which helped to make him one of the most influential and famous musicians of all time. The King wasn’t his only nickname though, Elvis was only nicknamed ‘the perfectionist’ by those that knew him, and as he was a Capricorn, we aren’t at all surprised.
David Bowie (January 8, 1947)
David Bowie was another iconic Capricorn musician. Capricorn is the astrological sign of discipline, hard work, and longevity, which sums up David Bowie and his four-decade career in music. Following the late icon’s death in 2016, he was honored for best rock performance, best rock song, alternative music album, recording package and engineered album (non-classical), on his 25th and final album, Blackstar.
Kate Middleton (January 9, 1982)
Kate Middleton is a Capricorn celebrity. Capricorns have an unrivaled sense of duty that motivates them to the core. This is a key component to being a part of the Royal Family in Britain and for the nation’s future queen. Kate Middleton fits this role perfectly. As a responsible Capricorn who thrives when given responsibility, you can see that Kate is a natural in the crazy environment in her role as Princess.
Timothée Chalamet (December 27, 1995)
Timothée Chalamet is a famous Capricorn. Timothée is kind and loyal, like a Capricorn, particularly with his good friends and family. He is also one of the highest-paid and most desirable actors in Hollywood at present and we can only see the interest in Timothée Chalamet increasing over the next few years. We’d expect nothing less from a motivated and driven Capricorn.
Dolly Parton (January 19, 1946)
Dolly Parton is a Capricorn. First, we had The King of Rock’n’Roll as a Capricorn, and now we have the Queen of Country too. Dolly Parton has achieved success in all areas of her life, from her iconic music career, her successful 50-year marriage, to her philanthropic endeavors. Dolly Parton had a dream and she had the relentless determination of a Capricorn to achieve these.
Orlando Bloom (January 13, 1977)
Orlando Bloom is a Capricorn celebrity. He is an incredibly successful actor. He works hard and completely commits to the roles he is playing, like a true Capricorn. He appears slightly warmer than your typical Capricorn. However, it’s important to note Capricorns are loyal, kind people who have a big heart and enjoy helping people. This definitely seems like Orlando Bloom to us!
LeBron James (December 30, 1984)
LeBron James is a Capricorn athlete. Success can come in a number of forms, and being one of the top three basketball players to ever play is definitely one of them. Not only this but luckily for this Capricorn athlete, it pays very well too! LeBron has amassed a fortune over $850 milllion so far through hard work, dedication, and determination; the core personality traits of this zodiac sign.
Nina Dobrev (January 9, 1989)
Nina Dobrev is a Capricorn. She is kind and loyal, particularly with her friends and family, and when it comes to relationships. In typical Capricorn fashion, she is thoughtful and considerate, always willing to offer a helping hand to those in need. Nina Dobrev invests a lot of time and energy when it comes to relationships and Capricorns don’t tend to get into relationships with people when they feel it’s not going somewhere. Nina also keeps the details of these relationships quite private.
Liam Hemsworth (January 13, 1990)
Liam Hemsworth is a Capricorn. Capricorns are mature individuals who are no-nonsense and ambitious, and Liam Hemsworth fits the stereotype. He rarely lets his guard down and he prefers to keep out of the public eye when it comes to his personal life and relationships. Liam’s practical and straightforward ways were a big contrast to Miley Cyrus’ ‘free-spirited’ Sagittarius.
FKA Twigs (January 17, 1988)
FKA Twigs is a Capricorn through and through. She is proud of her astrological sign, and, in January 2022, she released a mixtape called ‘Caprisongs’ a few days before her birthday (in Capricorn season of course). In an interview with radio station 91.9 WFPK, FKA Twigs told them, “I’m not that much of a serious person. I’m a Capricorn. I just get on with it.”
Jared Leto (December 26, 1971)
Jared Leto is a Capricorn. So much so that he wrote and sang in a song with his band, Thirty Seconds to Mars, called ‘Capricorn (A Brand New Name)’. As the hardest-working star sign, Jared Leto has proved his place as a Capricorn through his music and Oscar-winning acting career. Jared Leto commits himself to his acting roles by absorbing himself into the life of the character he is playing through extreme method acting. This in itself is dedication a devotion, like a true Capricorn.
Justin Trudeau (December 25, 1971)
Justin Trudeau is a Capricorn. Capricorns are trailblazers and make strong leaders due to their dutiful motivation and their devoted nature. It seems only fitting Justin Trudeau is the second-youngest Canadian Prime Minister. Not only is he paving the way and inspiring future generations, but Capricorns, like him, are known for being old souls. Their ability to absorb information means they learn quickly and they teach younger generations, just like Trudeau.
Kate Moss (January 16, 1974)
Kate Moss is a Capricorn. She has had one of the longest-running and most successful careers out of anyone in the modeling industry, which is no mean feat in this grueling and competitive line of work. One of Kate Moss’ mottoes in life is “Never complain, never explain”, and if that isn’t Capricorn, I don’t know what is. When a Capricorn gets knocked down they just get back up and keep going!
Rowan Atkinson (January 6, 1955)
Rowan Atkinson is a Capricorn. Rowan Atkinson suffers from a stutter, which he uses to his advantage. Whilst studying for his Masters at the University of Oxford, he created the character, Mr. Bean, who also had a stutter. Turning something that was a disadvantage for him (as he has said previously he was rejected for roles based on looks and his stutter) into an iconic character who has amassed a net worth of over $100 million – now that really is a Capricorn’s way of dealing with something negative!
John Legend (December 28, 1978)
John Legend is a Capricorn. As a goal-oriented Capricorn, John Legend has worked hard to get to where he is in his music career. Capricorns are all about their family and are of the belief that blood is thicker than water. This goes without saying for John Legend who loves his kids, his wife, and also has his mother-in-law living in his house. John fully supports and stands up for Chrissy Teigen when she faces public controversy.
Betty White (January 17, 1922)
Betty White was a truly iconic Capricorn. She was kind, big-hearted, and generous, just like a Capricorn. Betty White passed away 3 weeks before her 100th birthday. The one and only legend that was Betty White had a career that spanned over seven decades, really showing the determination and longevity of a true Capricorn. She didn’t show any signs of slowing down before her shock passing, and it broke the heart of the nation, but her legend will live on.
Mac Miller (January 19, 1992)
Mac Miller was a Capricorn celebrity. In his song ‘I Think I’m In Love’, Mac Miller sang of being a Capricorn, “Keep a journal, you all know the story though. The superficial type, love her horoscopes. And I’m a Capricorn, that she ain’t never had before. Her ex hates me ’cause he ain’t me that’s for sure.”
Bradley Cooper (January 5, 1975)
Bradley Cooper is a Capricorn celebrity. Bradley Cooper is one of the best and most sought-after actors in Hollywood. He is ambitious and dedicated to achieving his goals. Bradley Cooper continually works hard to get to where he wants to be in life, whether it be his acting career, his relationships, or his family life. A Capricorns devotion to things in life is seen through Bradley Cooper’s instinct at fatherhood, which people say made him ‘a changed man’, and we love to see it!
Denzel Washington (December 28, 1954)
Denzel Washington is another legendary Capricorn celebrity. His career has spanned over four decades and he has won a number of awards including being named the greatest actor of the 21st century by The New York Times. I’m not sure it gets much better than that! Denzel Washington is disciplined, ambitious, and motivated by his career. His personality comes across as composed and classy. All of which are typical Capricorn traits.
