31 Famous Leos Who Were Born for the Spotlight

If we had to guess one zodiac sign that’s prolific in Hollywood, it’d be Leos. Famous Leos are common in show business for several reasons. For one, Leos—especially Leo celebrities—have a flair for theatrics (duh). People who are born under the fire sign are also said to be ambitious (makes sense). Another common Leo trait: They like to feel important. That’s the perfect recipe for someone who wants to make it in the entertainment industry. Just look at Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, and Demi Lovato for proof. 

But, don’t be fooled. Actors and musicians aren’t the only famous Leos. There are also politicians and royalty (wink, Meghan Markle, wink). Their confidence, charisma, and charm make them natural stars. Keep reading for more Leo celebrities. (And don’t forget to check your own monthly horoscope after.)

Gabrielle Union Explained Why She Just Chopped Off Her Hair

Gabrielle Union just cut off most of her hair, and she looks stunning. “So, I did a thing 🤗,” she wrote on Instagram alongside pictures of the new look. “The movies always show women cutting their hair when all is lost, but I wanted to know the feeling of making a change when things are gravy. It hits different and its’ foreign to me but I ❤❤❤ this new new.” She added the hashtags “#SummerChop #FlawlessChop #FlawlessCut” for good measure. 

Union is totally right: The trauma haircut is a common (and sometimes irksome trope) on screen. However, we play around with our hair all the time—even when things are going well.  

Check out Union’s post for yourself, below. In the pics she’s posing in a high-rise apartment and looking stylish and relaxed. Beauty-wise, she’s rocking a bold red lip, winged eyeliner, and she accessorized with hoop earrings and chain necklaces. Her black dress is sleek and perfect for summer, as well. 

Union’s comments section is overwhelmingly positive, with messages of support coming from her celebrity friends like Lily Aldridge, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashanti, Yvonne Orji, and Tia Mowry. Many used the heart-eyes emoji to show how much their digging Union’s new look.

It looks like Gabrielle Union has been gearing up for this transformation all week. On July 21, she debuted a chic, super short bob on the set of her new Netflix movie. So, does this new style mean filming is over, or will she wig it for the rest of production? 

Short hair is certainly having a moment this year. “I think 2021 will be all about structure. Out with the messy texture; in comes the polished structure,” Riawna Capri, co-owner of Nine Zero One in L.A, told Glamour a few months back.

“Considering the current climate, a lot of women are doing their hair at home, therefore easy, effortless looks will be the go-to,” says Naeemah LaFond, Amika’s global artistic director.

Princess Diana’s Niece Just Got Married—in Couture

The year 2020 was a weird one for celebrity weddings and marriages. Stars still managed to tie the knot, but they had to do it in socially distant ways with small weddings and outdoor affairs. This year will no doubt see more weddings like this as the coronavirus pandemic continues, but hopefully we get some big, lavish celebrations toward the end of the year when—fingers crossed—enough of us are vaccinated.

Below, see all the 2021 celebrity weddings and marriages that you need to know about. 

The Norwegian Women’s Handball Team Rallied Against Their Sexist Dress Code—And Pink Approves

The women of Norway’s handball team took a stand against a uniform rule that required them to play in skimpy bikinis, and pop queen Pink has their backs.

Per People, at the recent European Beach Handball Championships, all female players were required by the International Handball Federation to wear “bikini bottoms… with a close fit and cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg. The side width must be of a maximum of 10 centimeters.” But the Norwegian team, going up against Spain, decided at the last minute to play in shorts and were fined the equivalent of $1,765 by the European Handball Federation, which cited “improper clothing.”

The men’s team, you will not be surprised to learn, appears to play in comfortable tank tops and loose athletic shorts.

Pink, however, was having none of this. On July 24, she tweeted a message of support, both moral and financial: “I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR ‘uniform.’ The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.”

Thankfully, the Norwegian Handball Federation is also standing behind its team, and the organization will pay the athletes’ fines. “I got a message 10 minutes before the match that they would wear the clothing that they were satisfied with. And they got our full support,” said NHF President Kåre Geir Lio, per People. In fact, the EHF will reportedly re-evaluate their dress code in the wake of this small but effective protest.

“We are very proud of these girls…They raised their voice and told us that enough is enough,” the NHF wrote on Instagram. “We stand behind you and support you. We will continue to fight to change the international regulations for attire so that players can play in the clothing they are comfortable with.”

Don’t make Pink come over there!

13-Year-Old Momiji Nishiya Is the First Olympic Champion in Women’s Skateboarding

“I didn’t think I could win, but everyone around me cheered me on so I’m glad I was able to find my groove,” she told The Guardian after the event.

Heading into the inaugural event, Nishiya’s medal chances looked bright thanks to her performance at the Street World Championships in Rome, where she earned silver on June 6.

Nishiya’s win completed a gold medal street-skateboard sweep on home soil for Japan. On Sunday, Yuto Horigome won the men’s competition to become the first-ever Olympic champion in the event.

Many of the competitors celebrated the performances in Tokyo as a shining example of the growth for women’s skateboarding, a sport that has been historically overshadowed by the men’s event.

“It’s going to change the whole game,” U.S. skater Mariah Duran told ESPN. “This is like opening at least one door to, you know, many skaters who are having the conversations with their parents, who want to start skating.”

“I’m not surprised if there’s probably already like 500 girls getting a board today,” she said.

On August 4, women’s skateboarding will continue with the park competition, featuring another 13-year-old phenom, Britain’s Sky Brown, and Team USA’s Brighton Zeuner, the youngest gold medalist at the 2017 X Games.

All the Sex and the City Kids Were Spotted on the Set of …And Just Like That

Sara Ramirez will play one of the new characters. Tony winner Ramirez, who is nonbinary, will play the show’s first nonbinary character in a “series regular” role. The Hollywood Reporter revealed on May 19 that Ramirez’s character is “Che Diaz (they/them), a nonbinary, queer stand-up comedian who hosts a podcast on which Carrie is regularly featured. Che is a big presence with a big heart whose outrageous sense of humor and progressive, human overview of gender roles has made them and their podcast very popular.”

Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman​ and Sarita Choudhury are also joining the cast! Parker welcomed four new actors to the series in an Instagram post on July 15, writing, “@justlikethatmax And finally!!!! THRILLED to welcome @therealsararamirez, @NicoleAriParker, Karen Pittman​ and Sarita Choudhury to #AndJustLikeThat. Can’t wait to work with these brilliant actors who bring so much talent, humor and excitement to our ensemble. X, SJ​”

Charlotte’s and Miranda’s husbands will return. HBO confirmed on June 9 that Steve Brady (David Eigenberg) and Harry Goldenblatt (Evan Handler) are going to appear in the revival. Plus, that’s not where the love ends: Willie Garson will also reprise his role as Stanford Blatch, and Mario Cantone will return as Stanford’s husband, Anthony Marentino.

“Everyone at And Just Like That is thrilled to be able to continue the storylines of these beloved Sex and the City characters with the actors who made them so lovable,” King said in a statement.

They’re back! On June 11, Parker posted a selfie with Davis and Nixon following their first table read! “Together again. 💜 Read through our first episodes,” she wrote, tagging @justlikethatmax. “Alongside all the fellas and our newest cast members. Like an ice cream sundae. X, SJ.”

The table read went really well. “I think the feeling was, ‘Oh, my God, this is so weird, right?’” Willie Garson, who plays Stanford Blatch, told Page Six on June 30, adding, “And also, ‘Oh, my God, this is so completely normal.’ So at the same time, this is the weirdest thing ever and this is literally just like, ‘Oh, here we are again. Another terrific episode.’” Garson said that he “truly, truly appreciate[s]” fans of the show for keeping interest in it alive for so long, and says that the “updated” new episodes will explore questions like “Where are these people now? How have these people changed, evolved? …Like, how has all the rapid changes in the world affected these people and how are they different?” He continued, “So God bless us for being allowed to do this. And it’s because of the fans.”

Angela Yee’s Oven-Roasted Veggie Wrap Recipe Is Quick, Easy, and Full of Flavor

Whether it’s a hot take on her award-winning radio show, The Breakfast Club, hot sauce in the kitchen, or Baileys almond milk liqueur in her morning coffee, Angela Yee adds a little bit of spice to every aspect of her life.

Well, if that’s the key to all of the host’s success, consider hair of the dog an official new staple of my morning routine. Aside from her illustrious career as a hip hop marketing exec turned radio personality, Angela Yee is a certified entrepreneur with a line of pressed juices, a thriving Brooklyn juice bar, and a Black-owned and -operated coffee company, Coffee Uplifts People.

“Coffee was started in Ethiopia, but for some reason, I think a lot of Black people don’t look at coffee as like a thing for us even though it’s ours,” she tells Glamour over Zoom. “So I really wanted to do something to show people the disparity in the coffee industry when it comes to women and when it comes to people of color.” The company launched its first line of coffee grounds and beans to raise awareness around voter registration during the 2020 election and is set to open its first brick-and-mortar this August. 

Yee’s own coffee order, of course, is anything but boring. “At home, I have my own machine and I actually like mine with a little bit of almond milk Baileys in it, I’m not gonna lie,” she says while giving me a tour of her De’Longhi La Specialista Espresso Machine. “So I make an espresso shot, I put the Baileys in it, and then I use almond milk with bananas. On the rocks.”

With everything going on in Yee’s world, it’s no wonder her cooking philosophy is all about keeping things simple. This brings us to the host’s contribution to Glamour’s That Thing I Always Cook column: her oven-roasted vegetable wrap. After changing her diet to combat high cholesterol, Yee found herself eating a lot of poultry. “I grew tired of so much chicken, got more into juicing, and eating more like a vegetarian,” Yee explains. “My tastebuds shifted.”
