America adores Betty White. The spunky star who seamlessly blends retro Hollywood glamor and modern relevance, is America’s favorite celebrity according to a recent Ipos poll.
The 90-year-old White experienced a popularity surge in 2010 after appearing in a hilarious Super Bowl commercial for Snickers. The commercial revived interest in the last-surviving Golden Girl and spurred the successful Facebook group that campaigned for the actress to host NBC’s Saturday Night Live. From then on, the woman with a career that spans seven decades has been back in the spotlight. . .where everyone loves her.
Also reeling in high popularity ratings are box-office boosters Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock, Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks.
Here’s a look at the 25 celebrities that topped the list.
Ipos, a leading global survey-based market research company, also published the names of 10 celebrities that America does not love. No. 1 is probably not who you think it is.
