A funny man, Ben Stiller is a Sagittarian and was born on November 30th, 1965 in New York. Coming from a family of famous comedians, parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara didn’t hurt Ben’s cause in making in the top, competitive business of Hollywood film making and especially comedy but his Sagittarian personality is also no doubt at the heart of his relaxed and lovable persona.
As a young child, Ben used to love entertaining and would perform plays with his sister Amy. He also had an interest behind the camera, not just in front of it, and this has now resulted in him writing and directing some very popular films which have sky rocketed him to international fame.
Ben’s endearing character seems to reflect what I have noticed with many Sagittarians, probably yourself included, and that is that you’re affable and communicative personality makes people feel at ease so they tend to want more of you.
I have also found Sagittarians to be extremely adaptable and this seems to be the case also with Ben in the hot botched career style of many actors. He is able to roll with the punches and there has been many times where he has found himself out of work, particularly after the poor ratings on his Ben Stiller show in 1992.
That didn’t stop him from reaching for the stars, which is another trait of the Sagittarian born individual. By 1998 when he appeared in ‘There’s something about Mary’, he hit the big time. After that, in 2000 ‘Meet the Parents’ in which he co-starred with famous actor Robert De Niro, which took him into super star status.
One of my favourite quotes of Ben is the following “Normally people tend to shut off their ambitions and competitive thinking because it doesn’t help them much in normal life. But in the movie business you’ve constantly got to prove yourself, so I can be a real arsehole on the set sometimes”. Yes, some Sagittarius born people do tend to get other people’s noses out of joint. Even Ben agrees he has a tendency to do that sometimes. Oh well, that’s Sagittarius for you.Read more about Sagittarius Celebrities here!
