The Iconic Female Rom-Com Character You Are, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
We all have that one romantic comedy that holds a special place in our hearts.
Whether it was the romance or the comedy that drew you in, there's generally always one major reason we enjoy it so much—we see ourselves in the female lead. We relate to her dating and relationship struggles so much, that we can't help but watch the movie over and over again to live vicariously through her eventually getting what she wants—love.
But is your fave leading lady the one you actually relate to most? Your zodiac sign might think otherwise. Scroll below to discover the iconic female rom-com character you are, based on your sign!
Aries (March 20 – April 19): Torrance Shipman (Bring It On)
There's not a single zodiac sign as competitive as you, Aries. It doesn't matter what you're doing, you always have to come out on top. You live by the mantra, "If you're not first, you're last." The only iconic female rom-com character who rivals your ambitious nature is none other than Torrance Shipman from Bring It On. This cheerleader is a straight up go-getter who doesn't let anything or anyone stand in her way, which causes her to be a bit hot-headed from time to time. A feeling you can relate to, both you and Torrance often let your emotions get the best of you. It's both a blessing and a curse, but you somehow always use it your advantage to advance further in your life than you ever thought possible.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Jenna Rink (13 Going on 30)
You're all sorts of practical, patient and reliable, yet you're also stubborn, possessive and uncompromising. You want everything that glitters, and while you know it's not gold, that doesn't mean you won't snatch up the sparkliest thing in the room. You appreciate the finer things in life, so much so that you're willing to do anything to achieve them. This is why you're Jenna Rink from 13 Going on 30. She wanted a better life, and a better (albeit, older) life is what she got. Like you, Jenna enjoys a more lavish lifestyle than most. She wants it all and neither she nor you can be stopped from getting what you have your heart set on—whether that be a designer handbag or the man of your dreams.

Gemini (May 21 – June20): Jane Nichols (27 Dresses)
There are many different facets to your personality, Gemini. One day you're the life of the party and the next, you've become the biggest introvert. Though no one is ever entirely certain which version of you they'll be dealing with at any given moment, that's what makes you all the more interesting. You're the type of individual who wears many hats, which is why you're a lot like Jane Nichols from 27 Dresses. In Jane's case, she wore a ton of different dresses, being the bridesmaid in just about any and every type of wedding. She's a versatile gal who's proven she can adapt to any situation she's thrown in, just like you.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Sam Baker (Sixteen Candles)
You project this tough and often heartless image out onto the world, Cancer. This thick shell of yours is used to protect your soft insides, because you're more emotional than you'd like to lead on. You have a huge heart, but not many people get to see it, seeing as you're fearful they'll take advantage of you. Sam Baker of Sixteen Candles understands your struggles all too well. Though she's a bit moody and pessimistic, it's only used as a security blanket—sound familiar? Just like Sam, you live in your comfort zone and are not too keen on the idea of ever leaving it. Remember that life begins where your comfort zone ends. We know you're not the biggest fan of clichés, but it's entirely true. Who knows? You might be surprised to discover what's waiting for you when you leave it.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Cher Horowitz (Clueless)
Charismatic and charming, you have all the makings of a star—which is nothing short of fitting, seeing as you constantly try to be the talk of the town. If you're not the center of attention anywhere and everywhere you venture, you'll do whatever you can to change that. Luckily for you, it's not hard for others to obsess over every little thing you do. The only rom-com lead who knows how to handle this magnitude of popularity is Cher Horowitz from Clueless. Everyone either wants to be her or be with her. You have that same magnetic personality as Cher, always turning heads whenever you walk into a room. Though most of the time you do things for personal gain, you're more giving that you'd like to admit.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Elle Evans (The Kissing Booth)
Careful and cautious, you always dip your toe into the water before diving right in. It's always how you've been with anything in life, because you're constantly worried something will go wrong. All of your plans have backup plans on backup plans for any sort of scenario. You're much more analytical in your approach to life, being the type of person to make a pros and cons list for everything. This is why you're Elle Evans from The Kissing Booth. She's a hard worker who's one to follow rules to a T. Sure, she might've broken one, but she still found a way to fix it—and that's something you know how to do better than anyone.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Kathleen Kelly (You've Got Mail)
You're a well-rounded and balanced individual, Libra. Not only that, you're incredibly just and fair. You tend to fight for the underdogs and do everything in your power to be sure everyone gets what they want. Though that's not always possible, you try your best. If there's one thing you love more than that, it's spending time with people. Being alone is not your forte, which is why you constantly try to surround yourself with new and exciting faces. This is why Kathleen Kelly from You've Got Mail is your astrological match. Much like you, she appreciates spending her time with others and is a champion for the little guy. The two of you would get along quite nicely IRL, but maybe meeting online is better suited for you both?

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Kat Stratford (10 Things I Hate About You)
You remain a mystery to most, and that's just the way you like it. While you're all sorts of alluring, you never allow anyone to get too close to see what you hide from the rest of the world. You're rather rebellious and don't follow the rules. Instead, you make them. Even when others are certain they have you all figured out, you're quick to prove them wrong. The only rom-com lead who rivals your mysterious vibes and rule-breaking attitude is Kat Stratford from 10 Things I Hate About You. She doesn't let anyone tell her who she can or cannot be, and is always willing to stick up for others. Like you, she's not quick to fall in love. But once the two of you let your guards down, some pretty amazing things tend to happen.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Rachel Chu (Crazy Rich Asians)
You're a fiercely independent creature, aren't you, Sagittarius? There's nothing you love more than your freedom to do as you please without a care in the world. This has led you on some rather fantastic and awe-inspiring adventures over the years. Your curiosity and desire to live life to the fullest makes you one of the most fun and engaging signs to be around. There's never a dull moment when you're involved. Because of this, you can definitely see yourself in Rachel Chu from Crazy Rich Asians. Sweet and endearing yet spontaneous and rebellious, she shares your desire to take in all life has to offer. And while she's entirely self-sufficient, she's not afraid to let love in. You share that same philosophy, for the right person, of course.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Toula Portokalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding)
Responsible and disciplined, you're a true leader. You work harder than anyone, mainly to provide for your family. You're the ultimate family person, always making sure they are taken care of. Though you may not always agree with them, you'll be by their side through thick and thin. You really couldn't live without them, even on those days they annoy you the most. Toula Portokalos of My Big Fat Greek Wedding is the same way. She wanted to rebel against what her family wanted, but came to realize how important they truly are to her and began to better appreciate all they brought into her life. Blood will always be thicker than water to the two of you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Laney Boggs (She's All That)
You march to the beat of a very different drum than everyone else, Aquarius. You're not afraid to do your own thing and stand out from the crowd. At the same time, there's nothing you crave more than being alone. Solitude is your favorite place. To say you're an introvert would be an understatement, but you catch our drift. Unlike most signs, you're not scared to let others in, you'd just prefer to be by yourself. We get it and so does Laney Boggs from She's All That. She's not afraid to let her freak flag fly, so long as she continues to go unnoticed by the rest of the student body. Even as she gains popularity, she never changes who she is. You'd do the same thing, because why change the amazing individual you are for anyone else?

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19): Lara Jean Covey (To All the Boys I've Loved Before)
A complete and utter sweetheart, you're always there for others whenever they need someone to vent to. You're that shoulder to cry on, because you don't want anyone to ever feel alone. Sometimes this can be a bit overwhelming for you, which is when you drift off into a world of fantasy. Lara Jean Covey from To All the Boys I've Loved Before knows this feeling all too well. When things in the real world don't pan out as planned, she lives vicariously through the fictitious life she's cooked up in her head—you do exactly the same. Not to mention, the two of you are both hopeless romantics, patiently waiting for your knights in shinning armor to rescue you from the mundane world you live in.
