She’s an award-winning actor and a perfectionist. Zendaya is a proud Virgo — even if that means she’s somewhat of a “control freak.” Here’s what this Euphoria actor said about her Virgo traits, which sometimes translate into her professional life. 

Born on Sept. 1, 1996, Zendaya’s zodiac sign is Virgo

Zendaya is an actor, singer, style icon, and philanthropist. With her birth date being Sept. 1, she’s a proud Virgo, sharing a sun sign with celebrities like Beyoncé, Blake Lively, and Keke Palmer.

According to Allure, people with this zodiac sign “are logical, practical, and systematic in their approach to life.” They’re also known for being perfectionists in most aspects of their lives. That perfectionism sometimes translates into Zendaya’s acting career. 

After her Disney Channel stardom, Zendaya earned a lead role in The Greatest Showman and Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. She became the youngest actor to earn the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for Euphoria

Zendaya thinks she’s ‘just a little bit’ of a control freak

During her “73 Questions” segment with Vogue, Zendaya answered questions about her daily routine and even the meaning of her name. The interviewer also asked about the “most Virgo” thing about Zendaya. 

“Ok, now this is going to sound negative, but I’m a little bit of a control freak,” Zendaya said with a smile. “Just a little bit.”

This interview wasn’t the only occasion Zendaya mentioned her sun sign. When the actor shared pictures from her Tommy Hilfiger X Zendaya collection, she captioned her Instagram post, “she’s a Virgo.”

“If something is not perfect or the best, then I feel like I might as well have not even done it,” Zendaya said of her Virgo tendencies during an InStyle interview. “I turn something into being the worst thing, even if it was fine. But it’s not fine to me.”

Zendaya thinks co-star Tom Holland has some Virgo qualities (even though he’s a Gemini)

She added in the same InStyle interview that one reason why she appreciated working with Spider-Man’s Tom Holland was that even though he’s a Gemini, he has some Virgo-esque qualities, especially when it comes to his work.

“Seeing him at work, even though he’s not a Virgo, he is a perfectionist,” she said. “…He’d do a move, come back to the monitors, watch it, and say, ‘I can do that better.’ I’d be like, ‘Dude. You got it.’ But he wants us to be perfect, and I really appreciate that.”

Holland’s birthday is June 1, 1996. That makes this actor’s sun sign Gemini. According to Bustle, these signs are perfectly matched with their intellectual compatibility. 

Both Geminis and Virgos are “flexible, resilient, and [in] need mental stimulation.” These co-stars publicly became a couple in July 2021, when pictures surfaced of Zendaya and Holland kissing.
