Poll: Betty White Is The Most Trusted And Popular Celebrity

By Robert Paul Reyes

Betty White, 89, is both the most popular and most trusted celebrity with Americans and the person most likely to drive up the business of a brand she might choose to endorse, according to a poll released on Wednesday." Reuters
The geriatric Golden Girl scored an 86 percent favorable opinion in the Reuters/Ispos poll, beating out the likes of Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock and Clint Eastwood.


Betty White has been on quite a streak the last couple of years. After the loveable comic starred in a commercial for Snickers candy bar about two years ago, America rediscovered her and the job offers and commendations just poured in.

Betty is so trustworthy that I would buy and use any product she endorses; I just hope she doesn`t become a spokesperson for a company that sells pantyhose.

A corporation that hires Betty to endorse their products doesn`t have to worry that the beloved actress has any skeletons in her closet. I don`t think Betty will have to enter rehab for sex or drug addiction.

I`ve loved Betty since her "Golden Girls" years, and I couldn`t be more delighted that young people have recognized her charm and talent.
