Betty White Named Most Trusted Celebrity
Betty White has been in the limelight for decades, but on Wednesday she was named the most trusted celebrity in America. The Reuters/Ipsos poll released this week also named White the most popular and the most likely to drive up the business of a brand she might choose to endorse, according to Reuters.
White scored an 86 percent favorable opinion in the Reuters/Ipsos poll, beating Oscar winners Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock and Clint Eastwood in the survey of the 100 most popular personalities, reports Reuters.
Meanwhile, 44 percent of those that participated in the survey said they would be more likely to do business with a company if White endorsed it.
White, 89, is the only surviving member of the main cast members of the 1980s TV comedy “Golden Girls”.
However, over the last few years her career has seen resurgence with roles in "The Proposal" and the TV show "Hot in Cleveland".
According to Reuters, White also won an Emmy Award last year for hosting the satirical sketch show "Saturday Night Live".
On the other end of the spectrum, Paris Hilton and Charlie Sheen were deemed celebrities to stay away from to promote products as 54 percent of the 2,012 Americans questioned said they would trust a company less if it were endorsed by Sheen, with Hilton coming in second.
