Lights, camera, action. Leos thrive in the spotlight – and bring one everywhere they go. It's no surprise that some of pop culture's most theatrical performers are Leos, though some celebrity Leos may surprise you.

Leos are born between July 23 to August 22. According to astrologer Lisa Stardust, who wrote an overview of the Leo personality for, the fire sign is known to be generous, big hearted and somewhat dramatic. 

Stars like Kylie Jenner, Madonna, and Tom Brady are mighty Leos — and so are many TODAY anchors. Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Dylan Draper are all the lions of the zodiac.
