I don't mean to knock today's celebrities, but I've always been more interested in the stars who made the Hollywood classics I grew up watching with my family.
They were talented and stylish, but they also had that "X factor" that today's stars just don't share.
Another big passion of mine is astrology, and it turns out the celebrities of Hollywood's Golden Age are great examples for their zodiac signs.
Do you relate to the star who shares your birth sign?
Capricorn - Elvis Presley
It takes talent and guts to be both the King of Rock and Roll and a Hollywood star, but Capricorns like Elvis are ambitious by nature.
Like the famous rocker, they're also known for being shy and reserved - when they're not on stage letting their inner performer shine.
The King found success by nurturing his patience and discipline, and you will too. But you'll get in trouble when you let your bad habits slide for too long.
Set goals to help channel your strong personality towards something productive, and don't get caught resting on your laurels.
Aquarius - Clark Gable
As a movie star who enlisted to fight in World War Two, it should be no surprise that Gable was an Aquarius. They're famously selfless and compassionate.
Gable was also a devoted husband to actress Carole Lombard before her untimely death.
But like the actor, this sign also has a fierce creative streak and an independent spirit.
Aquariuses are dependable and loyal friends, but not exactly in touch with their emotions. The director of Gone With the Wind had to trick Gable into crying for one of his most famous scenes.
Pisces - Elizabeth Taylor
The daughter of an heiress, Taylor left her cushy lifestyle as a young woman for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.
Pisces can let their imaginations get ahead of them that way, but the choice obviously paid off for Taylor. They're also known for being compassionate, sensitive, and devoted friends.
But don't let your friendly nature make you naive. Taylor was married eight times - including twice to Richard Burton - so it's safe to say the actress let her heart overrule her head a few times.
Aries - Bette Davis
Davis was more than just a pair of big, blue eyes. Her incredible career - with more than 100 acting credits - owes as much to her bold personality as her looks and acting skills.
Aries are known for butting heads with anyone who challenges their vision, and that fits Davis to a tee. But she was also a lively, upbeat person when things went her way.
Fight for what you believe in, but don't insist that it's your way or the highway. Aries can be versatile and adventurous too, so show off that side of your personality.
Taurus - Audrey Hepburn
The best-known qualities of a Taurus sound like a description of a classic Audrey Hepburn performance: down to earth and understated, but with a strong personality shining through.
Tauruses are recognized for their steady, dependable nature. They work hard, and wait for their chance to shine, the way Hepburn carefully picked her roles.
On the other hand, this sign is known for being stubborn and self-centered. Hepburn was an exception for sure - she devoted the last thirty years of her life to charity work.
Gemini - Marilyn Monroe
While she died at just age 36, Monroe left an indelible mark on Hollywood, and is still one of the movie industry's biggest stars.
A girl from a humble background who grew up in foster homes around Los Angeles, Monroe's movie persona and "the real Marilyn" were two completely different people.
But that's not a bad thing: Gemini are criticized for being superficial and two-faced, but that also makes them versatile and adaptable.
Block out the anxiety and sensitivity that often gets the best of you. Let your inner light shine and people will line up to meat the real you.
Cancer - James Cagney
Cagney was a rare star known for both his dramatic acting skills and his comic timing.
He could bounce from tragedy to comedy in a heartbeat, which plenty of Cancers can relate to - for better or worse.
This sign is home to friendly, loving people, but their strong emotions make them prone to mood swings.
If you can rein in your feelings and channel them towards something useful, the way Cagney did, then you'll be a star for sure.
Leo - Lucille Ball
I Love Lucy is still cracking up audiences to this day, and that's all thanks to Ball's incredible comic chops.
She was so funny, it's easy to forget she was also a trailblazer. Her TV show sometimes tackled taboo topics, mostly because Ball refused to give her audience anything but the plain truth.
That's a typical Leo: bold, brash, and straightforward. Just be careful not to let your ego take control of you.
Leo is also known as one of the most loyal signs, and Ball's heartbreaking love story with Desi Arnaz is proof of that.
Virgo - Greta Garbo
Garbo was a true Virgo: crafty, intelligent, and a little judgmental.
A hit actress in the silent movie era, Garbo managed to keep her career alive in "the talkies," and even outlasted being branded "Box Office Poison."
But when Garbo had enough of Hollywood, she had enough. She retired from acting to collect art, and made a small fortune for herself. How's that for a practical, thoughtful Virgo?
Although, the actress also had a serious perfectionist streak, dropping projects altogether if the smallest thing upset her.
Libra - Julie Andrews
Tactful, charming, and sweet. Does that sound like anyone you know?
The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins star is world famous, but well-known for her self-effacing personality, which has won her a lot of fans.
While this sign is known for "over-balancing," making them unreliable, indecisive, and superficial, Andrews shows off the sign's best qualities.
She puts things her way, but nicely. After all, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
Scorpio - Hedy Lamarr
Scorpios are described as focused, brave, and ambitious. And there's no Hollywood star who embodied those qualities quite like Lamarr.
She fled an unhappy marriage in Austria, became a film star in America, and quickly became one of the most famous actresses of all time.
Scorpios have a reputation for being jealous and manipulative partners, but they make up for their emotional weakness in other ways.
Many have an unusual combination of skills. Lamarr was an actress and an inventor, who invented radio technology which was eventually used to make Bluetooth.
Sagittarius - Frank Sinatra
Straightforward, generous, but a little careless. Yep, that sure sounds like 'Ol Blue Eyes.
After a hit music career - he's still one of the best-selling musicians of all time - Sinatra made a name for himself in Hollywood.
His versatile personality, a typical Sagittarius trait, helped him play the leading man in dramas, musicals, and lighthearted comedies.
But just ask any of Sinatra's four wives and they'll tell you, he also had a typically Sagittarius knack for being selfish, rude, and uncaring.
