Jordana Brewster is the talented actress best known for her portrayals of Mia Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise and Alessandra Villa in Dallas. She was born April 26th, 1980, making her a Taurus.
A Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and one of the four earth signs. Taureans are ruled by Venus, the planet of love, and often demonstrate great patience, loyalty and ease in forming strong attachments with people and things. They can also be quite stubborn and are often quite possessive when it comes to their belongings. Taureans are known for their determination and they can be quite creative; when put to task, they will stubbornly pursue their goals.
Brewster was born in Panama City, Panama, to a Brazilian mother Maria João Leal de Sousa, a former swimsuit model, and an American father Alden Brewster, an investment banker. She spent the first six years of her life in her native country before her family moved to London, and later, Manhattan, where she was raised. She also speaks fluent Spanish and English.
Brewster credits her parents for her acting aspirations. She moved from naturalistic theater in New York City to the one in Los Angeles, after she saw a casting call for the television adaptation of The Big Apple. She landed the role opposite Brad Pitt and landed her first big break in the movie The Faculty. After a few other roles, she was cast in The Fast and the Furious franchise (2001), a major success in the film world.
Brewster’s success with the Fast & Furious franchise was a major breakthrough for her. She also starred in films such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) and Fast & Furious (2009), while continuing her acting career with other television and movie roles. Her determination and commitment, as well as her creative impulses, can be associated with her Taurean traits.
Brewster manages to bring that same drive and commitment to her philanthropic work. In 2010, she launched the Jordan Brewster Empowering Education Fund to benefit children and young adults in the Los Angeles area. Her cause emphasizes the importance of inspiring and educating young people to reach their full potential. Her mother also founded a charity called BrazilFoundation, which focuses on the empowerment of Brazilians.
Brewster continues to demonstrate her Taurean traits with her hard work and commitments to her career and philanthropic efforts. Her commitment to making a difference in the world is evident in her work, and she stands as an example of a strong, Taurean woman. Despite the challenges life has thrown her way, she has managed to overcome them with grace and hard work, truly embodying the spirit of a Taurus.
