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[1].

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[2] 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.
