More Celebrity Graphology
Buster Keaton’s autograph shows extraordinary energy and self-confidence, even to the point of grandeur (the t-bars over the t’s). He had to be this way to survive the dangerous stunts he did, not only in his movies, but even as a child on stage.
This also makes his statement that he considered Stan Laurel even greater than he was all the more remarkable, as this is not the signature of someone who would throw around compliments lightly.
Here we have the benefit of more than just a signature, and it’s clear to me that Cooper’s early persona, described as “androgyny”, was closer to the real him than his later roles (The Hays Code frowned on ambiguity). The “g” in Gary is positively flowery. He had a strong need to express himself (strong right slant, as in my writing).
His walk, incidentally, was not a Western swagger, but rather the result of a car accident that injured him when he was 15.
Though Judy Garland is a pseudonym, the given name still represents the mother, while the last name represents the father. The rather messy “Judy”, as compared to the more organized “Garland” indicates a far better relationship with her father than with her mother (known to be the case), yet Garland was as feminine as her name (again, “flowery” writing), so this paradox was a source of frustration for her (temper tics in the “J” and the “G”)... some degree of resolution was provided by her close emotional bonding with gay men, a recurring theme through her life and career.
Madonna’s autograph, first and foremost, is that of someone of extremely high intelligence. The complex way she connects the “e” of “love” and the “M” of “Madonna” is perhaps as great an intellectual flex as ever I saw in handwriting.
In addition, despite media portrayals of Madonna as greedy, hedonistic and confrontational, this is not so. Her upper loops (superego) are quite large, indicating that she has a strong moral compass. At the same time, she adds lower zones to letters that don’t ordinarily have lower zones, indicating predictably high libido as well.
She makes the “M” look like a heart, indicating someone feminine and loving. The way she ends the final letter in “Madonna”, however, indicates that she insists on having the “last word”.
Overall, this is the very complex signature of a genius who is, at heart, loving, altruistic and 90% feminine (she has, at times, taken “girly” very deliberately “up to 11″)... but who, through difficult experience, knows not to reveal this to too many people, lest they take advantage of it.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s signature is very quirky and artsy, unsurprising if you know his dad did performance art, and indicates a strong maternal influence (he was raised almost exclusively by his mom, who had to be strong to get by financially).
Rihanna’s signature is intelligent, creative and, unsurprisingly, musical- notice how the “R” resembles a musical clef. Music is part of her identity.
Her intelligence is shown not only by the creative way she writes the “R”, but how she goes through many loops from the “i” to the end of her name without lifting her pen- she’s creative, but also follows through on her ideas.
The way she “doubles back” on herself in the first “a”, combined with the “underhanded” “n’s”, indicates someone who could, given her intelligence, conceal almost anything she wanted to conceal. She could be in the CIA without us knowing it... though to be fair, I have similar traits in my writing, and I’m not CIA... as far you know.
