“High School Musical” hottie Zac Efron is one of many stars born in the Year of the Fire Rabbit.

Also a Fire Rabbit is “Gossip Girl’s” Blake Lively, who was recently named AskMen.com’s Most Desirable Women of 2011. Think it was because of her great sense of style? Rabbits are known for being fashion-forward!

Evan Rachel Wood is a bit of a mystery, which is another characteristic of the Fire Rabbit.

Although she’s only 23, she’s been described as being “wise beyond her years.”

Unfortunately, Bow Wow occasionally displays a negative Rabbit quality: Throwing tantrums. In 2007, the rapper/actor made headlines when he wound up in the hospital reportedly because he had cut himself while trashing his dressing room before a performance in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 2010, he even threw a tantrum on Twitter and ordered his mother to delete her Twitter account. In case you’re wondering, she didn’t give in to his demand.
