If you’re born in April, you’re either an Aries or a Taurus — and either way, you’re in good company. From comedians and producers to Grammy winners and Oscar nominees, the spring month is bursting with famous birthdays.
Click through to find out who the richest celebrities are — and those who were born on every day in April.
April 1: David Oyelowo
Net worth: $6 million
In 2001, David Oyelowo played King Henry VI with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Oyelowo isn’t among the richest royals in the world, but he does know a thing or two about the throne in real life — his family is descended from royalty in Nigeria, where he spent part of his childhood. A two-time Golden Globe nominee and star of 2014’s “Selma,” Oyelowo was born in 1976 and will turn 42 in April.
April 2: Christopher Meloni
Net worth: $30 million
Born in 1961, Christopher Meloni is best known for playing Detective Elliot Stabler in the long-running “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” but that’s not nearly the end of Meloni’s gritty-cop-show credentials. Meloni, who turns 57 in April, has appeared in a number of the most popular TV shows including “NYPD Blue,” “Brooklyn South” and “Homicide: Life on the Street.” He also turned in stellar performances in HBO’s “Oz” and “True Blood.”
April 3: Eddie Murphy
Net worth: $85 million
Born in 1961 in Brooklyn, N.Y., Eddie Murphy had one of the greatest early careers in show business history. Murphy, who will turn 57 in April, rose to fame on “Saturday Night Live” in 1980 and then moved on to big screen paychecks when he starred in several consecutive classic films, including “Beverly Hills Cop,” Coming to America,” “48 Hours” and “Trading Places.” He later enjoyed a successful second act with a string of safer family-friendly films.
April 4: Robert Downey Jr.
Net worth: $260 million
Born in New York City in 1965, Robert Downey Jr. wasn’t the highest-paid actor of 2017 — he was before Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson overtook him — but his $48 million haul did earn him the title of that year’s sixth-highest earner. Downey, who will turn 53 in April, gained fame in the mid-1980s with movies such as “Weird Science,” “Less Than Zero” and “Back to School.” Although he never stopped working, his career was reignited in 2008 when he landed the billion-dollar movie franchise role of Tony Stark in “Iron Man.”

April 7: Jackie Chan
Net worth: $350 million
Jackie Chan, who will turn 64 in April, is one of the highest-earning actors in the world — but you’ve probably never heard of most of the affable daredevil/martial artist/accidental comedian’s most successful recent movies. That’s because Chan, who was born in 1954 in Hong Kong, makes much of his money in China, which, according to Forbes, is the hottest film market in the world.
April 8: Patricia Arquette
Net worth: $24 million
Born in 1968 in Chicago, Patricia Arquette won an Oscar in 2015 for her role in “Boyhood.” She might be better known, however, for her long-running role in the television series “Medium” or as the charming prostitute Alabama in Quentin Tarantino’s 1993 breakout film “True Romance.” Arquette is turning 50.
April 9: Cynthia Nixon
Net worth: $60 million
Cynthia Nixon, who will turn 52 in April, has more than 80 credits dating to 1974, but she’ll always be best known for her role as Miranda Hobbes in HBO’s epically successful “Sex and the City” franchise, both the long-running show and movies — even though the films didn’t fare so well critically. Born in New York City in 1966, Nixon plays “Toni” in “The Discreet Pleasure of Rejection,” a movie due out in 2018. On March 19, she announced she’ll run for governor of New York.
