  • Are you a Julia Roberts or more of a Meryl?

    Sure, you probably know whether you’re a Pisces or a Gemini, a Virgo or Scorpio. Maybe you check your horoscopes from time to time. But this is a star sign everyone will love.

    Currently doing the rounds on Twitter, having recently gone viral, is a fun thread helping you to work out which famous actress is your Hollywood star sign.

    Twitter user Tess, aka @isabeIIehuppert, who started the thread, came up with the idea that the Best Actress winner the year you were born best represents your personality.

    Aka, your Hollywood zodiac sign.

    And it pretty much went OFF from there, with thousands of Twitter users now talking about it.

    Tess’s notifications must be busy.

    Note that the sign relates to the year the leading lady won the Oscar, not the year the film was made.

    For example, if you were born in 1988, Cher is your Best Actress winner for Moonstruck, released in 1987.

    From Julia Roberts to Emma Thompson, Halle Berry to Meryl Streep, find out who your Best Actress zodiac sign is below.
