Betty White Named America’s ‘Most Trusted Celebrity’
The 89-year-old actress was named America’s “Most Trusted Celebrity” and the country’s “Most Popular Celebrity” in a recent poll released by Reuters/Ipsos.
White was listed as the person most likely to bring business to a brand she chose to endorse. Hey, she even beat out other stars such as Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Morgan Freeman and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton for the honor. She scored 69 percent trustworthiness rating. She also came out on top in terms of popularity, with 86 percent of those polled having a favorable opinion of her. This simply means that you just have her endorse your product, and the American people will surely buy it.
White is the only surviving cast member of “Golden Girls”. She has made a comeback onto the scene after her appearance at the 2006 William Shatner roast. Since then, has been starring in commercials, TV and film, like “The Proposal” and “You Again.”
Now let’s talk about the least trustworthy celebrity. You can’t even imagine that there is one celebrity worse than Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears, or Tiger Woods.
Socialite and hotel heiress Paris Hilton was voted as the absolute least trustworthy celeb with a whopping 60% of Americans say they don’t trust her. Charlie Sheen got 52%, Britney Spears with 45%, and Kanye West 45%. Others on the bottom of the list of unpopular personalities are Arnold Schwarzenegger (44%), Tiger Woods (42%), Kim Kardashian (38%), Mel Gibson (33%), Donald Trump (31%), and LeBron James (29%). Hey, we can’t find Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrintino’s name in here. Oh well.
