As if summer wasn't enough of a gift, it turns out there are a ton of celebrities who'll be blowing out birthday candles this month.

Just a few weeks after America, herself, celebrated a 239th birthday (you don't look a day over 235, queen!), movie stars, A-list singers and many red carpet-dwellers in-between will become one year older and, hopefully, wiser. They say with age comes wisdom, so with the collection of summer babies above, considered, we'd say there might just be a new Manhattan Project taking shape.

Between a Hunger Games star, a leading lady who's cool for the summer and even a few celebrities whom we've sadly lost over the years (RIP, Whitney and Michael...), the eighth month of the year has proven to be a hotbed of some pretty noteworthy talent. Good on you, Leos and Virgos!

So, what privileges are those who were born in August afforded? Welp, they call peridot and the sardonyx their official birthstones, breathe in gladiolus and the poppy as birth flowers and can say that they share their birthdays with National Romance Month (ooh, la la...) and National Picnic Month (don't forget the plastic cutlery!). And, as Women's Equality Day is August 26 each year, we'd be remiss not to give a special shout out to the ladies of summer.

Check out a massive list of celebs born in August above, and be sure to wish 'em each Happy Birthday!
