I have trouble believing that people “trust” celebrities. That’s probably because I have trouble trusting anyone. (My sister: “Try this mascara!” Me: “What’s your motive?”) At any rate, a survey of humans claims Betty White is the most popular and “most trusted” celebrity.
Meanwhile, you wouldn’t let Paris Hilton or Charlie Sheen babysit your hamster, much less consider them worthy of your “trust.” Lauds to you, America, for your excellent judge of character. (But jeers for making Paris Hilton a celebrity in the first place. Thankfully, you’re over that.)
More fun facts from said poll, conducted by Reuters/Ipsos to determine the celebrity most likely to drive up the business of a brand they endorse: You also trust the likes of America’s male sweetheart Tom Hanks; America’s actual sweetheart Sandra Bullock; the man who narrated a movie about little adorable penguins, Morgan Freeman; and Kate Middleton, who reuses her clothes, officially giving us all no reason not to trust her. Joining Hilton and Sheen at the bottom
(of humanity), is Britney Spears, Kanye West, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Kim Kardashian, Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and LeBron James.
What do you think of that list, PopWatchers? Who would you add/subtract?
