Before you underestimate another Cancer in your life because they are just too nice, here is a list you would like to refer too: the list of the 50 most famous Cancer celebrities and eminent personalities.
Famous Cancer Musicians and Singers
All the famous cancer singers and musicians have been some of the key players in bringing about a revolution in the music industry. Among the men are names like Post Malone (Rockstar), Ringo Starr (Beatles), George Michael (Careless Whisper), Carlos Santana (Black Magic Woman), Brian May (Queen), 50 Cent (Candy Shop), and Kris Kristofferson (Why me).
Among the Cancer female musicians are Missy Elliott (Work It), Arianna Grande (Thank You, Next), Linda Ronstadt (Blue Bayou), Cyndi Lauper (Girls Just Wanna Have Fun), Rebecca Black (Friday), and Mariahlynn (Once Upon a Time).

If you couldn’t see enough famous names in the singer and musician’s category, then you are sure to have your mind blown now. Some of the most promising and legendary names in Hollywood were born under the Cancer zodiac sign.
Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Tom Cruise (Mission Impossible), Kevin Hart (Get Hard), Kevin Bacon (Footloose), Milo Ventimiglia (This is Us), Tom Hanks (Forest Gump), Will Ferrell (Anchorman), and Vin Diesel (Fast and the Furious franchise), are just some of the names that boast of a Cancerian birth.

Famous Cancer Artists
And the Cancerians who didn't find charm in singing and acting painted their emotions. Artists like Frida Kahlo, John Leguizamo, Rembrandt, Gustav Klimt, Peter Paul Rubens, Marc Chagall, and Burt Ward, grace this list. A common theme among all of their work is how well emotions have been captured in their paintings. That is indeed the common thread that binds all Cancer natives, their ability to perceive emotions and feelings in a manner that no other zodiac sign can.
Famous Cancer Politicians
Cancers, with their superior intellect and ability to perceive emotions, have led people since a very long time. Some of the most significant politicians around the world have been Cancers. Leaders like Nelson Mandela, Princess Diana of Wales, and Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, were and are Cancers making a difference in the world. Then there are politicians like Elizabeth Warren, US President George W. Bush and Gerald Ford, Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel, and Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister of Scotland.
Famous Cancer Couples
Now one might think that Cancers can get along with any zodiac sign they want. For the most part, that is true. But I hear a lot of Aries women groaning in the background right now. However, we are not looking at failed Cancerian relationships right now.
We are looking at couples like President George W. Bush (Cancer) and his wife Laura Bush (Scorpio), who have been together for more than 40 years. President Ronald Reagan (Aquarius) and Nancy Reagan (Cancer) who have been the epitome of marital bliss for the longest time.
Paul McCartney (Cancer) and Linda McCartney (Virgo), the happiest of all of Paul McCartney’s marriages that ended only with Linda’s death.
Prince Charles (Scorpio) and Camilla Parker Bowles (Cancer), a couple that found their way to each other despite being married to other people. it is interesting to note though that Princess Diana was a Cancerian too. A marriage that eventually failed.
Tom Hanks (Cancer) and Rita Wilson (Scorpio), one of the few Hollywood couples to have a long and happy marriage.
