Since Will Smith starred in the 2019 movie Gemini Man, many fans were left wondering if Will himself is a Gemini.
Though he plays the Gemini man character, Will Smith is not a Gemini. The period to be born a Gemini is from May 21st to June 20th and Will was born on September 25th, 1968. This means that he is actually a Libra.
Continue reading to find out more about what being a Libra is, especially as it pertains to Will Smith.
The Gemini Man
The Gemini Man film got its name because Will Smith’s character, Henry Brogan, is the target of a younger, cloned version of himself. This makes them “twins” and the Gemini zodiac sign is symbolized by a pair of twins as Geminis are said to have a dual nature.
The Gemini Man has a long history as it was meant to be made in 1997, but there were technological issues in creating a younger version of the intended main character. Many big directors like Tony Scott, Curtis Hanson and Joe Carnahan were meant to be part of the film. Similarly, many big actors like Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson or Sean Connery were meant to be the star.
But, in 2016 Skydance Media purchased the rights to the screenplay from Disney and filming started to take place in 2018 with Will as the main character. When they finally started to produce the film, they had to create an animated, younger version of Will Smith through motion capture and footage from his extensive past movie and television career. Thus, in this film, Will Smith is only playing a Gemini “twin”, he is not actually one.
Gemini versus Libra
There are 12 astrological signs in Western astrology, said to correspond with the 12 months. Whichever sign you are is based on how the stars were aligned when you were born. As Will Smith was born on September 25th, he is a Libra. Libras are said to be artistic, affectionate and refined.
These all seem to be adjectives that also describe Will as he has previously said: “I want to do good. I want the world to be better because I was here. I want my life, I want my work, I want my family, and I want it to mean something. It’s like if you are not making someone else’s life better, then you’re wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better.” He does seem to seek peace and joy through personal relationships.
It is also said that Libra men tend to marry at a young age, this is interesting as Will married his first wife, Sheree Zampino, in 1992 when he was only 23 years old and had a child together the same year before getting divorced 3 years later. He got married again in 1997 when he was still in his 20s at 29 years old. While likely not all Libra men get married at a young age, Will certainly did, twice at that.
Geminis on the other hand, are bright, changeable and inquiring. They are said to have two different personalities in one, and you will never be sure which one you will face. Gemini men are said to excel in advertising, media, politics or teaching. None of these characteristics really fit Will Smith well as he is many things: an actor, a musician, a philanthropist and a father.
He may have many titles, but he seems to compile them all together to make one identity. Will Smith has always been quite open, especially as he has been in Hollywood for over 30 years. It does not seem like he is a two-faced person and does not fit the characteristics of a Gemini as well as he does his own sign, a Libra.
