In astrology, an Aquarius zodiac sign is anyone born between January 20 and February 18. Aquarians are most known for being both friendly and detached; independent and original, yet very aloof.

But Aquarians are also described as independent, deep thinkers, friendly, and optimistic, traits that are all exemplified in these famous Aquarius celebrities.

Ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius gets the complex, paradoxical personality that confuses and mollifies everyone around them.​ The air sign can be both weird and quirky, yet totally driven and competitive.

So, while some famous celebrity Aquarians might be a little quirky or quiet, they've always got something bigger going on inside. They also have big hearts and are always determined to make something of themselves.
