When celebrities turn bad, often in the full glare of the media spotlight, it’s a little like watching a slow motion car crash – we know we should turn away, but somehow, we just can’t. Could celebrity bad behavior be rooted in the stars? Does a celebrity’s star sign play a part in their meltdown? Yes, to a certain extent. Sun signs are only one small part of astrology, and the full picture is much more complex than that, but here’s our guide to the type of tantrums we can expect from celebs.
Ah, Virgo. Quiet, modest and definitely not the party type – right? How can Virgo celebrities get themselves into trouble? Ironically, given that this is the sign of the virgin, it’s often trouble with sex which thrusts these celebrities into the wrong kind of limelight. Virgo has a hidden sexuality which can border on the perverse, and it’s also quite a secretive sign. Hugh Grant was famous for his image as a proper, polite, educated English gentleman – very Virgo – until 1995, when he was caught in compromising circumstances with a prostitute in his car, and received two years summary probation. Incidentally, Grant’s grumpiness, criticism of the movie industry and all round sarcasm are also very Virgo traits. Charlie Sheen is another Virgo celebrity whose increasingly erratic behavior has often involved prostitutes and porn stars. If they’re not in trouble over sex, it’s drugs which cause problems for other Virgo celebs. Virgo, for all its health conscious image, does tend to get addicted to substances quite easily – particularly prescription drugs or painkillers, as in the tragic case of Virgo Michael Jackson.
