These Virgo Celebrities Will Make You Realize Why You Love Your Virgo Amigos So Much

Virgo Season (August 23-September 22) is upon us which might explain why you’re feeling suddenly industrious, organized and efficient. OK, maybe you’re not, but these celebrity Virgos have used their star-given talents to make it to the top.

Virgos are known for being crazy detail-oriented and are total perfectionists. They’re also known for caring about the greater good, and are rarely ever sheep.

Here are some of the most notable Virgos that you can totally relate to.

Salma Hayek

Born on September 2, 1966, Mexicana Salma Hayek first made it in the business as a model before becoming a wildly successful telenovela actress and eventually a film star. Like a good Virgo, she has used her platform to speak out against domestic violence and for immigrant rights.

Fun fact: When she was 12 years old, Hayek was sent to a boarding school in Louisiana that expelled her after two years. She eventually went to study International Relations at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, but quit to become an actress. Ay-oh.

Marc Anthony

Born on September 16, 1968 as Marco Antonio Muñiz, Anthony is one of the most famous salsa artists of all time. Originally from Spanish Harlem in New York City, he’s also known for being graced with Jennifer Lopez’s wifely presence. Nobody deserves her grace, which is why they aren’t together anymore.

Anthony first rose to fame for writing the songs for boricua group Menudo. His parents, Felipe and Guillermina, are originally from Guyana, Puerto Rico. Anthony is a true Virgo (y boricua) in that he’s joined forces with Jennifer Lopez to raise money for the victims of Hurricane María, who have largely been abandoned by the U.S. government.

Thalía

Born as Ariadna Thalía Sodi Miranda on August 26, 1971, Thalía is known as the Queen of Latin Pop. She’s just as famous for her humanitarian efforts with March of Dimes and disaster relief work for Mexico after the devastating earthquake in Mexico City.

Thalía has sung in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Filipino. She also went to Liceo Franco Mexicano elementary school and has been speaking French since she was a niña. By then she was already a star, given that she had first appeared in a TV commercial by the time she was one years old. A true Virgo star.

Eugenio Derbez

Variety magazine recognized him as the most influential Latino in the entertainment industry in 2014. Born on September 2, 1961, Derbez’s qualifying Virgo status (besides his birthday) is his soft spot for animals. Derbez is a vegetarian. 🙂

Fun fact: Derbez was the voice of Donkey in the Spanish language versions of the films Shrek and Shrek 2. It’s all fitting since he’s been acting since his first extra spot at 12 years old on a telenovela.

Justina Machado

Born in Chicago on September 6, 1972, Boricua Machado is currently starring as Penelope Alvarez on Netflix’s “One Day at a Time.” Her role is honestly a service to Latino Americans as Penelope is a single Cuban-American mom who confronts mental illness, veteran issues, LGBT rights, immigrant rights and more in the binge-worthy series.

Seriously, go watch it now, before Virgo season is over. Mother Teresa was a Virgo, for Christ’s sake. Machado learned most of her acting from the Latino Chicago Theater, which launched her into acting roles in more than 15 films. In the last few years since she’s been in the spotlight, she’s generated at least $2 million in net worth. Take my money, Machado. It’s for a good cause.

Jessica Pimentel

Born on September 20, 1982, Pimentel became an American sensation with her role as Maria Ruiz on “Orange is the New Black.” Long before that role, she has been playing Juliet on tour and is a trained classical violinist in a heavy metal band.

Talk about meticulous attention to detail? Girl is a violinist. That takes dedication. She actually shared that the orchestra has given her a metaphor for life: “In fact, where you sit is determined by how well you play. At any moment, someone can challenge you for your seat and if they are better than you, they move up. I always took that as a metaphor for life — you have to stay on your toes and put in the work to get to where you want to be.” Preach.

Will Levy

He’s the Cuban Brad Pitt and the rest of America learned about his good looks and smooth moves on “Dancing with the Stars.” He’s basically a renaissance man, putting him right in line with every other over achieving Virgo you know. He’s also really dreamy.

Levy didn’t always want to be an actor. When his family moved from Havana to Miami, he wanted to become a professional baseball player. But then someone opened their eyes and swooped him into a modeling career, which launched him into some reality shows, which… well you get the picture. We like looking at him.

Sara Ramirez

Born on August 31, 1975, Ramirez has been overachieving since the beginning. She casually graduated from Julliard and immediately started performing on Broadway long before her role as Callie Torres on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Girl actually won a Tony award in 2005 for her performance in broadway play Spamalot. Remember that epic musical episode where Callie almost died and Sara Ramirez was clearly the best? Now you know why. 🙂

Plus, she’s one of the most outspoken Latinos for LGBT rights in the industry and we’re all heart-eyeing for everything she touches. She actually took a year hiatus from acting in order to devote fully to LGBT rights, which awarded her the “Human Rights Campaign’s Ally for Equality Award.” LOL–that was back in 2015 when she was an ally and not an out bisexual queen.

Johnny Sibilly

Born on September 5, 1987 and well known for his work on “Pose,” “Femme” and “The Deuce,” Sibilly is also an outspoken LGBT rights activist and has shared the cutest first kiss story ever with Into More:

“I remember the first time a boy approached me and gave me butterflies and I’d never felt that before. I was at a drama competition and I saw this guy that I thought was super cute and I wasn’t fully out. I remember he came up behind me, I was sitting in a chair, and he whispered in my ear, “you’re so f*cking cute.”

And I just got chills all over my whole body and I’ll never forget that feeling as long as I live. It’s never been recreated. He was my first boyfriend. It was the most amazing feeling that I’d ever felt, it felt like an electric shock, like I was paralyzed for a minute or two and I wanted to tell everyone how it made me feel because it felt amazing.”

Caption: “GAY is more than okay!”

Cameron Díaz

Born on August 30, 1972, Diaz is the retired model and actress we all know and love. What you might not know is that Diaz has learned to be happy and politically engaged. She advocates for voter rights and encourages all her followers to vote every single time.

Raised in Long Beach, Diaz struggled to be fully accepted into the Latino community because of her blonde hair and blue eyes, but says she tries to bring her Latin roots into every role she plays. Crazy story: between the ages of 16 and 21, Diaz lived in Japan, Australia, Mexico, Morocco and Paris to keep up with her modeling career.

Julian Casablancas

CREDIT: @casablancas_julian / Instagram

He’s a cusper. Casablancas was born on August 23, 1978 and we know him best as the lead singer from The Strokes, RIP. Before The Strokes, he was trained in classical music theory, like a true meticulous Virgo. “I wanted to learn the basic rules. If you’re going to be a surgeon, you want the one who studied, you don’t want the one who was the most inspired.” He just beats to his own drum, what can I say?

Casablancas is completely open about his addictive personality and alcoholism affecting the Strokes’ early years. He admits his hay days are all a haze.

De La Ghetto

CREDIT: @delaghettoreal / Instagram

Formally known as Rafael Castillo, De La Ghetto was born in New York on September 17, 1984. Virgos get the job done, and Castillo has been after it since he was a young boy. He actually grew up in Puerto Rico, in the midst of the birth of reggaetón in the 90’s and we feel the island vibes in all his work.

De La Ghetto told Billboard magazine this year, “I think people should listen to my music because I’m a second, third generation Latino American,” says the proud Latino. “I represent all the young kids in the streets that…que quiero luchar por algo importante por ellos [all the young kids in the streets that want to fight for something important — for them].” De acuerdo, De La Ghetto.

Lupe Ontiveros

CREDIT: @marissamontiveros / Instagram

Born on September 17, 1942, we all loved to hate her as Yolanda Saldívar in “Selena” and struggled to accept her as anything other than a villain in every performance. Tragically, Ontiveros passed a few months ago, but her memory lives on in her work in Hollywood.

She appeared in over 100 movies and TV shows, from “El Norte” to “Desperate Housewives.” All through the 1970s, Ontiveros proudly played dozens and dozens of maids in shows like “Alice” and “Charlie’s Angels.”

J.D. Pardo

CREDIT: @jdpardo / Instagram

Jorge Daniel “J.D.” Pardo was born on September 7, 1980 to an Argentine father and Salvadoran mother. We know him best from “A Girl Like Me” and “Twilight.” He played one of Jacob’s wolfy, hot-headed, hot-bodied friends. Recuerdes? Plus, if you’re a full fledged rom com dork like me, you’ll remember him from A Cinderella Story (2004).

To be honest, we haven’t seen him on the big (or little) screen in awhile but we’re certain he’s cooking up some new gigs like any good Virgo would. Te echemos de menos.

Victoria Moroles

CREDIT: @victoriamoroles / Instagram

We recognize this Tejana from “Teen Wolf” and our Disney days of “Liv and Maddie.” Born on September 4, 1996, our eyes are on Moroles to see how she uses her platform for good. It’s only been about a year since she graduated high school. Before that, she was going to Teen Wolf on-screen high school and an off-screen high school. If she didn’t become an actress, she told Zimbio that she would have become either a homeopathic doctor or member of an all girl rock band. “Depends on the day.”

Touché, Moroles. But thank you for becoming an actress instead. 🙂

Ryan Guzman

CREDIT: @ryanguzman / Instagram

Born on September 21, 1987, actor Ryan Guzman has been in the company of J.Lo, which makes him more famous than his work on “The Boy Next Door,” “Heroes Reborn” and “Boyhood.” Can you tell I’m a die hard boricua for J-Lo? Beyond being graced by J-Lo, he’s also a mixed martial arts fighter and son to an Air Force veteran.

His proud Latino heritage is a big motivator for him. He told NBC News, “The more I grow as an actor and let my name become known, I can start investing that into my own company and hopefully show off the embodiment of my heritage.”

Belén Rodríguez

CREDIT: @belenrodriguezreal1 / Instagram

Born as María Belén Rodríguez Cozzani, Rodríguez, Belén is a classic Virgo in that she won’t be told what to do. Since her rise to fame as a model and TV host, Rodríguez has taken up residency in Milan, Italy and it seems like she’s staying there.

In Virgo fashion, she had to speak up publicly when she learned of Tiziana Cantone, an Italian woman who suffered online abuse and then killed herself. When men (and women) release sex tapes of other people, it ruins lives. Rodriguez spoke out saying that she actually had a miscarriage when she suffered a similar abuse. Thank you for speaking up. <3

Kevin Ortiz

Born on September 18, 1995, Ortiz grew up playing the accordion with his family. While his brother is pop singer Gerardo Ortiz, he isn’t overshadowed by him. He’s been signed with BadSin Records after his performance at the Youth Awards.

In Billboard’s “Mexican Millenials” panel in 2015, Ortiz talked about the importance of unity within the Latin genre. That since he was a “chiciquito,” he was playing instruments and making music with his tios and, of course, his superstar brother, Gerardo Ortiz. He’s known for making modern music with traditional mariachi elements and is now a judge on the talent-hunt show “Tengo Talengo, Mucho Talento.”

Alexa PenaVega

CREDIT: @vegaalexa / Instagram

Remember “Spy Kids”? Our girl is all grown up and has been starring in “Ruby & The Rockits.” PenaVega was born in Miami on August 27, 1988 and is now 29 years old and married to the incredibly talented and handsome Carlos PenaVega.

Last Christmas, the couple released a beautiful Hallmark film called Enchanted Christmas. The film heavily involves dancing so if you want to see a Dancing With The Stars contestant work his magic with Alexa, dale.

Can We Talk About Salma Hayek Having A ‘Grease’ Moment At The Beach?

Can We Talk About Salma Hayek Having A ‘Grease’ Moment At The Beach?

Salma Hayek’s Hot Girl Summer is officially OTT. The Mexican-American actress has taken the viral vibe (take notes: it’s a mindset, not a lifestyle) to a completely different dimension in her latest Instagram post which has left concerned onlookers with hundreds of questions.

In a recent post to her Instagram account, the actress is 1. raising questions about how waves should be used and 2. sending me on the hunt for a lavender bathing suit.

Now that you’re caught up, are you ready for a deep dive into Hayek’s recent post?

Giphy.com

Let’s do this!

So Hayek posted a slideshow of pictures to her Instagram that channel a one-woman take on iconic film scenes.

salmahayek / Instagram

In a caption for the post, Hayek wrote that “Sometimes you just need to surrender and let the waters move and embrace you. A veces hay que dejarse ir y dejar que las aguas te muevan y te abracen. #waves.”

The caption alone raises a TON of questions. For instance, what does Salma feel like she needs to surrender to? Perhaps it’s her deep desire to appear in a classic film so she can reenact an icon scene?

You know the scenes we’re talking about.

The extremely ~sexUAL~ one in “From Here To Eternity.”

From Here To Eternity / Columbia Pictures

Which inspired a not quite as sexual scene in “Grease.”


Grease/ Paramount Pictures

The photos also show Salma in the pretty cute lavender bathing suit she has been posting about nearly all of August

Here Salma is in the bathing suit in its most recent appearance.

And here Salma is wearing the suit earlier in the month.

This was posted on AUGUST 13.

Salma Hayek wore a lavender bathing suit to the beach so I wore a lavender bathing suit.

salmahayek / Instagram

This was posted to Salma’s account on August 7th with the hashtag #water #agua. It’s cute, figure-hugging and makes her look like a goddess on the beach.

But back to the Real Business of the matter:

Salma’s pseudo drowning pic posted this week which gives us all kinds of emo vibes.

salmahayek / Instagram

It has most of us confused about whether or not she’s okay? Or, if she’s on a different level than the rest of us and is actually pretty tight.

And because Instagram, naturally, is a place to ask real questions about celebrities and their daily celebrity doings we felt pretty validated that others have questions too.

For example:

landopolo asks the question “Oh no baby what is you doin” in a comment of the post made on a post of the images by @officialseanpenn, an account which also wanted to know if Hayek needed a lifeguard.

And this one: “is she okay” – by concerned user ava_royale

And this comment by “Corpse goals😍” by therealgenevievetho.

Hayek also did an extreme close up of herself being nearly damn swallowed by a wave.

salmahayek / Instagram

To which I repeat the wise words of Instagram user landopolo “Oh no baby what is you doin.”

It’s okay though, she pops up for breath pretty soon after.

salmahayek / Instagram

And that’s on that on Salma Hayek must be trolling us news.

In our next episode, we’ll be chatting about Hayek’s newly changed bio which has been changed to a bunch of emojis.

Wear Your Zodiac Sign On Your Sleeve With These Fetch Pins

Wear Your Zodiac Sign On Your Sleeve With These Fetch Pins

The biggest challenge facing us in the twenty-first century is figuring out how to increase our accessory game. But, one of the best things about exploring the ins and outs of your zodiac is figuring out just how you can accessorize to match your celestial self. So, without further ado, we’ve put together a list of pins that’ll best match your star sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram / @brunellavatri

If anyone had to describe you, Aries, they’d use words like creative, fiery, independent, and stylish. Note: stylish was probably the most important word in that sentence. For you, Aries, keeping up with the latest trends is paramount. That being said, you know that style is also about personal expression, so if you’re going to wear anything, it’s got to reflect who you are, too.

Mitú Shop / Not Your Mamcita Pin

That’s why the perfect pin for you is the Not Your Mamacita pin. You like to show everyone’s who’s boss, and what better way to do that than to proudly wear your independence? Granted, there’s a reason people call them “statement” pieces – and you’d know how to make this statement work for you!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram / @sheilaruiz.makeup

Being a well-rounded human, Taurus, your sense of fashion tends to come from your desire to make practical choices. You know that if you’re going to put together an outfit, it’s got to first and foremost be comfortable AF. From there, the sky’s the limit on what you wear!

Mitú Shop / Selena Pin Pack

Pins are a great way for you to accessorize without compromising your practical fashion choices, Taurus. In fact, that’s why the Selena pin pack would work best for you. You know that you can switch up your look with whatever you feel like on the day – whether that be wearing one, two or three pins at once. 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram / @claudiadouge

As the sign of the twin, Gemini, it can be hard for you to really get fashion. It’s not because you don’t understand it, per se. No, it’s because you’ve got this awful habit of putting together a killer outfit, and then immediately changing your mind. It’s hard to decide on something that like when you feel like you’re of two minds, most of the time!

Mitú Shop / Best Flans Pin Pack

This is why the Best Flans pin pack is your jam, Gemini. Not so that you can share one pin with your bestie – but, rather, change up your look to match your mood.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram / @mariatzumba

We all know you for being a real romantic at heart, Cancer. You wear your emotions on your sleeve, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing! As far as you’re concerned, the best bonds between people are those that are made by following your heart. 

Mitú Shop / All We Need Is Guac Pin

And on that note, the All We Need Is Guac pin is perfect for you. It’s the kind of pin that’ll let you actually wear a heart on your sleeve! Plus, you can share your deep love for guacamole. 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram / @uaefranco

Leo, your fashion choices aren’t made to accommodate trends. Rather, you are the trendsetter. You love wearing things that’ll attract attention and stir up conversation. Otherwise, why would you bother wearing it?

Mitú Shop / Hair Full of Chisme Pin

The Hair Full of Chisme pin is exactly the type of pin that’s up your alley, Leo. It’s all about your big, gorgeous hair. And, it’ll also help you find all the real Mean Girls fans at the party. Because let’s face it: there’s nothing better than making friends over iconic quotes.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram / @andiicrown

If there’s anything everyone knows you for, Virgo, it’s your capacity to work hard. And be punctual. It’s not entirely clear whether you prioritize working hard first, or being punctual. Heaven forbid the day that you have to choose between the two. To be honest, you don’t have time to pay attention to fashion.

Mitú Shop / Chisme Time Pin

And so the Chisme Time pin is definitely something you need in your life – especially since we all know that if there’s anyone who would schedule their chisme time, it’s you. That being said, you know that chisme is one of the hardest things to put on your schedule. Why? Because chisme time is all the time.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram / @xo.lexibaby_smg

Libra, you tend to have a lot going on in your life. And really, that’s what makes you such an interesting person – you tend to be where the vibes are at. That being said, it can also place a bit of a strain on you, your wardrobe, and your funds.

Mitú Shop / Broke AF Pin

That’s why the Broke AF pin was made for you. Next time you’re struggling to say no to a party, or explain why even though you really wanna go all-out on your next date you really can’t, you can just whip out this pin. Or, keep it on you at all times. In short Libra, you really, really, need this pin.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram / @ribana_vizireanu

You’re the type of star sign to step on someone’s ego just to take them down a notch. And, we applaud you for it. After all, there’s nothing more satisfying than seeing some moron on a power trip eat their words. More often than not, you like to wear black to show that you mean business.

Mitú Shop / R.I.P Machismo Pin

The R.I.P Machismo pin was pretty much designed with you in mind, Scorpio. At least it shows that you don’t suffer any fools. And woe betide anyone that doesn’t heed that warning! 

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram / @reesanicc

Sagittarius, you’re here for a good time, not a long time. Although if you can, you’d like to try and live for as long as possible, since you’ve got a pretty big bucket list! The most important thing for you is that you do things that make you happy – and that includes your fashion choices.

Mitú Shop / I Heart Tequila Pin Pack

Naturally, there’s no pin better for you than the I Heart Tequila pin pack. More often than not, your heart gets broken time and again by the hours you’ve invested in ingesting tequila, without getting much in return beyond a sick belly. But does that stop you going back to it? No, no it does not, Sagittarius.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram / @alizz.wild.flower

Your self worth is built on your achievements, Capricorn. You want to feel like you’ve gotten somewhere in life, and that means that you don’t normally waste too much time thinking about the ins and outs of fashion. That is, beyond considering what’s event-appropriate. 

Mitú Shop / Educated Latina Cap Pin

That’s why the Educated Latina Cap pin is a perfect fit for you, Capricorn. It shows off your smarts and your heritage, while also being a conversation starter. You wear your hard work as a badge of honor, and to be honest, that’s pretty much captured in this pin.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram / @anythingforlatinas

Aquarius, you like your fashion choices to say something. After all, if you can take the opportunity to educate someone else about the world, why waste it? This sometimes manifests in some strange ways – from banging on about sustainable fashion to arguing against leathers and furs. 

Mitú Shop / Thicc Thighs Save Lives Pin

The Thicc Thighs Save Lives pin is the conversation-starter you need, Aquarius. How else can you direct the conversation towards rejecting fat-shaming and rethinking the way the fashion industry treats people of different sizes? Plus, you can’t resist a little word-play, either.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram / @_makeupbytflawless

Of all the star signs, Pisces, you really like to get in touch with your more mystical side. This can sometimes manifest in the things to wear, especially since you know that it’s inevitable that we’re influenced by the other side, in one way or another. What you wear might put you in touch with that, you know?

Mitú Shop / Crystals Pin

That’s why the Crystals pin is definitely a Pisces type of pin. And if anyone asks about why you liked that pin, you can always say you just felt some good vibes coming from it.
