Scorpio, the eighth sign, is the Zodiac sign for those born between 23 October and 21 November. As the name suggests, their representative sign is that of the arachnid Scorpion.
As far as characteristics go, Scorpios are well-known to exude something of mysterious energy. They are intense and have personalities on the darker spectrum. But then again, Scorpios are water signs, which means beneath the subdued exteriors lies a sensitive temperament.
Among other things, Scorpios are personal and discreet. They tend to have an aura of mystery around them, which makes up part of their appeal. And being a fixed sign, they prefer having stability in life.
They are super loyal and passionate about what they do, which makes them ideal for friendships and relationships. However, in case you choose to deceive them, expect no clemency. Scorpios tend to think of people and situations that had wronged them and hold onto grudges for long.
In essence, Scorpios make for great characters, for they remain authentic to themselves throughout. And that is why most Scorpio celebrities on our list are genuine and original.

28 Famous Scorpio Celebrities:
1. Ryan Reynolds
The Deadpool actor was born on 23 October, right at the cusp of Libra and Scorpio. Surely, this sounds understandable as to why Reynolds seems to have a bit of Libra in him. He has a charming personality which goes well with the natural peacemaking trait that’s common among Libras.
Ryan married actor Blake Lively, a Virgo, which makes their relationship astronomically perfect. Loyalty is second nature to Scorpios, which might explain why Ryan’s marriage has been such a success.
Being ambitious is another Scorpio trait. Ryan demonstrates this well through his career trajectory. He seems ever ready to give his best in all projects, even if he has only a minor role to play in it.
2. BD Wong
BD Wong is an American actor of Chinese origin. He rose to international fame after starring in the series Mr. Robot, playing the role of a Transwoman named Whiterose.
Born on 24 October, Wong is a Scorpio through and through. When he came out as gay back in 1988, the movie was then considered a bold one. And boldness is a trait often best associated with Scorpios.
Since then, Wong has gone on to have twins via surrogacy with his former partner. He even published a memoir describing his experiences. Recently, he got married to Richert John, his partner of 8 years at the time.
If there’s one celebrity on the list whose mention shouldn’t come as a surprise, it’s probably Drake. The Canadian rapper literally titled his 2018 album based on his Zodiac. Scorpion, the album, had singles like “In My Feelings,” and “I’m Upset.” This just goes on to show that there’s a different, more intense side to Drake than he makes known.
Fans must also be aware of how private a person Drake is. He’s a thorough professional throughout and prefers not to talk much about his personal life.
When it comes to being intensely passionate in love, as Scorpios generally are, Drake is second to none. He has mentioned his relationship with Rihanna in pretty much every album of his.
4. Katy Perry
Katy embodies the water sign of Scorpio like no other. We say this because she is a triple Scorpio. Her sun, moon, and rising signs are all perfectly placed within Scorpio.
Therefore, it was hardly a surprise when in 2020, she released an E.P. titled Scorpio SZN. Other Scorpio traits she manifests are creativity and determination, as is evident from her achievements.
Perry is currently one of the best-selling artists of all time. And who can forget the much-published miscommunication between Katy and Taylor Swift? At first, Scorpios can come across as hard and unemotive. But once the guard comes off, they make great friends. And as is the case, Katy and Taylor have long buried the hatchet.
5. Julia Roberts
Born on 28 October, Julia is another famous Scorpio on our list. And like Katy Perry, her Sun, Mercury, and Neptune are all in Scorpio. This American Sweetheart is quite private when it comes to her personal life, a trait often associated with Scorpios.
When it comes to relationships, Scorpios are well-known to be traditional. They seek stability and serious commitment, which is presumably hard to find in the entertainment industry. That’s why after dating fellow co-stars, Julia ended up marrying Daniel Moder, a cinematographer.
Scorpios are also deeply mystical, which best explains Julia’s conversion to Hinduism. Julia commented she converted out of spiritual satisfaction.
6. Frank Ocean
Scorpios are ambitious and driven, and Frank Ocean is no exception. In a time when music is becoming repetitive, Frank seems able to do just that extra bit. His music is intense, and the lyrics are rather emotionally charged.
Frank’s first album Channel Orange was released to critical acclaim. He incorporated elements of pop-soul and psychedelia and established his mark as an ingenious artist. The Scorpio creativity seemed to flow in him in abundance.
Frank manifests a somewhat aloof and hard exterior, though we know how sensitive he can also be. In the aftermath of the Orlando Club shooting in 2016, Frank wrote an essay expressing his sadness.
7. Bill Gates
The co-founder of Microsoft is next on our list. And as is the case with most Scorpios, Bill is as ambitious as one can be.
To become one of the richest people surely takes a single-minded approach to goals. And we believe his Scorpion sign had a fair bit of role to play in it. Despite his riches, Bill is well-known for being humble. He spends millions every year on various philanthropic causes.
And in spite of being in the limelight for years, Bill has managed to keep his personal life under wraps. Only recently, when he separated from Melinda, his wife of over 27 years, did more of his private issues come to view.
8. Tracee Ellis Ross
The Black-ish actress was born on 29 October, making her a Scorpion. Tracee is the daughter of famous yesteryear singer Diana Ross. But don’t let that information take away from the fact that she’s a celebrity in her own right.
For her performances, she has garnered the NAACP Image awards thrice. Ellis has also received a Golden Globe Award under the Comedy genre for Best Actress.
Since the time she started getting recognition, Ellis has continued to maintain privacy about her personal life. Being a Scorpion, this barely comes as a surprise. In fact, her personal life is under the radar, so much so that she hasn’t spoken about any of her relationships ever.
9. Winona Ryder
If you didn’t already know, Scorpios are often associated with hidden legacies, death and the occult. Having said that, there’s no person better than Winona Ryder, whose work proves this best.
Having been in the industry for decades, Winona can boast of extensive filmography. And the mysterious Scorpion that she is, many of her iconic roles were no less mysterious and weird. This includes roles in movies like Beetlejuice, Stranger Things, and Black Swan.
And who can forget about her relationship with Johnny Depp? Even after years of separation, Johnny seems to have a permanent place in her heart. Talk about Scorpion loyalty!
10. Kendall Jenner
Imagine being a Scorpion, and you’re born into the Kardashian family. Well, Kendall happens to be precisely that. We say this because Scorpios are well-known for being discreet and private. And the Kardashian family is anything but private.
Regardless, Kendall has managed to keep most of her life a low-key affair. And in comparison to her younger sister, she definitely seems more retiring and contemplative, which adds to the charm.
Kendall’s driven and passionate about the projects she takes up, as one would expect of a Scorpion.
11. Matthew McConaughey
Matthew best epitomizes the Scorpion trait of being mysterious and aloof. Born on 4 November, Matthew has always been someone who kept his private life discreet.
He’s ambitious and a free, independent thinker, confirming in 2021 that he was considering running for Governor’s seat in Texas.
As far as talent goes, Matthew is second to none. And being a Scorpion, he is quite passionate about his roles and projects. That was best displayed when he essayed the role of Ron Woodroof in the Dallas Buyers Club. His role won him his first Academy Award for Best Actor.
Despite being one of the biggest record producers in the entertainment industry, Diddy remains quite aloof from the media. He’s constantly away from the public, yet at the same time remains connected through his ventures.
As a record producer, Diddy’s well-known for having a commanding presence, which one should expect from a Scorpion. He’s also noted in the media for his unfailing honesty, regardless of the circumstances.
Diddy is super ambitious, as is evident from his entrepreneurial spirit. He’s the head of Combs Enterprises. Additionally, he has also launched a clothing and perfume line. The Scorpion energy in him never seems to stop.
13. Kris Jenner
Another celebrity from the Kardashian-Jenner family on our list is the matriarch Kris Jenner. Born on 5 October, Kris is the undisputed brain behind the entire family’s operations.
Being a Scorpion, she is ambitious and determined and never seems to set limits to her goals. That’s one major reason why even at the age of 66, she continues to foray into various business ventures.
Kris’ the executive producer of the family’s shows and also runs Jenner Communications. At one time, she was the official manager of her kids, most of whom were celebrities in their own right.
14. Emma Stone
This Scorpio celebrity was born on 6 November. Among other traits, Scorpios have a reputation for being moody yet lovable at the same time. In Emma’s case, if that wasn’t evident already, look no further than her roles in Easy A, La La Land, and Birdman.
Stone is among the few actors in Hollywood who simultaneously work in both major projects and small, independent movies. That speaks volumes of the brave temperament Scorpios are often associated with.
Emma is also quite private about her personal relationships, as was evident when she was allegedly linked to Andrew Garfield. The couple outright refused to speak about their relationship in public.
15. Taryn Manning
Actress Taryn Manning is a great Scorpio representative. Unlike many on the list, Taryn didn’t have an easy time growing up due to financial troubles. However, that couldn’t stand in her way of dreaming big.
Her capacity to overcome her troubles speaks volumes about the Scorpion mentality of being ambitious. Since then, Taryn has gone on to become a mainstream Hollywood actress. Additionally, she runs Little Vanilla Records and also co-owns a clothing line.
On the flip side, Scorpios can be quite the jealous and controlling types. That’s perhaps the reason why Taryn has always had issues maintaining her relationships.
16. French Montana
Born on 9 November, French is a Scorpio. And like most Scorpios, the Moroccan-American is ambitious and driven. Due to financial troubles in the family, Montana became the primary breadwinner in the family at a young age.
Despite the obvious limitations, French began his career as a battle rapper during his teens. He funded the Coke Boys Record and kept producing independent material until signing with Diddy’s label.
Montana’s song Unforgettable reached the top 10 in Billboard’s Top 100. The song cover had a picture of Montana’s parents on the day of their wedding. Speaking about it, French said it was his way of acknowledging his mother’s importance in his life. It sounds a lot like Scorpio’s classic determination to stand with family and close ones.
17. Demi Moore
Moore was born on 11 November. She’s a proud Scorpio. In the aftermath of her memoir’s publication, she posted on Instagram, “This little Scorpio is coming out of the book cocoon.”
Throughout her long career, Demi has always exuded an aura of mystery. This was part of the reason why the media seemed so invested in her personal life, despite Demi’s efforts at maintaining a low profile.
And who can forget Moore’s nude appearance on the cover of Vanity Fair while being seven months pregnant? Speaks a lot about Scorpio’s mentality to be brave and bold.
18. Leonardo DiCaprio
This Hollywood heartthrob was born on 11 November. Ever since gaining international fame, Leonardo’s private as much as public life has been in the limelight.
He exudes Scorpio’s passion, and his romantic associations have been well documented. That aside, loyalty is another Scorpio trait, which Leonardo shows through and through. Despite the fame and name, he remains close to his childhood friends, including fellow actor Toby McGuire.
And like any true Scorpio, there should be no doubt about Leonardo’s dedication. His filmography contains a diverse range of roles and movies that would make aspiring actors swoon over him.
19. Anne Hathaway
Born on 12 November, Anne Hathaway is another famous Scorpio celebrity on our list. And despite the fame, she remains grounded and close to her old friends. Typical of Scorpio!
Anne is known to be easy-going and warm, someone who is a thorough professional. But don’t let her charming personality trick you, for she remains a highly ambitious and intense person.
To her credit, she has won an Oscar, produced a movie and is actively involved in political work. Indeed, a touch of Scorpio’s ambition shines in her. Anne has kept her personal life under wraps and very rarely speaks about it in public.
20. Ryan Gosling
Gosling was born on 12 November, so we know he’s a passionate fellow. For reference, watch his role in the movie The Notebook.
Ryan has been a part of the entertainment industry since his growing days, starting out as a child artist for Disney. And despite being under constant media vigilance, he has successfully kept his private life at a safe distance. He’s rarely seen discussing his personal life in public.
As a true Scorpio, Ryan is also dedicated and persistent, never mind in which field. He co-owns a Moroccan restaurant where he spent a year renovating the place by himself. Gosling even oversees the restaurant’s menu.
21. Gerard Butler
22. Whoopi Goldberg
23. Owen Wilson
24. Jodie Foster
25. Meg Ryan
26. Goldie Hawn
27. Jaime Lee Curtis

With a combination of persistence and understanding, once you get to know them better, you’ll realize how wonderful and valuable Scorpios are. Therefore, it’s no surprise that many of the celebs on the list are Champions.
