America loves Betty White best

America loves Betty White best

Thought Reese Witherspoon was America’s Sweetheart? Or maybe Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock?

Well, you’d be wrong, because Betty White can officially claim that title. It turns out that the angelic 89-year-old is now America’s most favorite and trusted celebrity, the Los Angeles Times reports.

White has come in first in a Reuters/Ipsos poll asking, "whose endorsement of a company would be most likely to drive business”?

Just over 2,000 Americans voted, and the former “Golden Girls” star beat out other famous faces like Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman (who tied for seventh place with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge), Will Smith and Johnny Depp.

The celebrities the public doesn’t care for include: Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears (who ties for third with Kanye West), Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Kim Kardashian, Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and LeBron James.

Last year, White won an Emmy for her “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig, and the actress has recently appeared in Snickers commercials and TV shows like “Community” and “Hot in Cleveland.”

And you’ll be seeing more of White this fall; she has an upcoming “Punk’d”-type show (with a senior twist) called “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers.”

    Dear Betty White .. I hope you see this note. One of our Hero Dogs needs your help. Gabe and his Handler Chuck were supposed to come out to Dodger Stadium to throw out the first ball, but Delta is saying that Gabe would have to travel in the cargo area ... and Chuck doesn't feel that he can put Gabe thru that kind of stress. Gabe is dealing with PTSD at this point. If you can put in a word for Gabe, that would be very kind ... me, I plan on NEVER using Delta again for this disrespect of a Great Service Dog, Gabe. Best Wishes to you Lovely Lady <3

    You can easily tell which posters value talent and which posters value no-talent hacks. Betty White has talent in her acting. She worked hard at it when she was younger and everything she touches turns to gold now because of her hard work.

    The posters who bash her are obviously fans of shows like Jersey Shore, Glee, etc. that have no talent...just a bunch of people who either look good or have a good voice.

    I'm not bashing them, I'm just saying it is very easy to tell them apart.

    I thought she was funny in 'Golden Girls'. I don't hate the Kardashian girls, but their mom's seriously mental – if she really treats her daughters more as meal tickets. And I don't know if Betty should be insulted or flattered when guys on here say they wanna 'do her'. But still, that's like saying that about your grandma. Sheesh!

  23. Pray this Prayer

    CONSCIENCE predicted by O u r L a d y in Garabandal in 1961 will take place soon to
    save the world.

    The Warning is taking place to:

    1. Prove to all that God exists.
    2 Bring everyone to J e s u s and the Way of Truth.
    3. To help save us before the final day of judgement by giving us a chance to ask for
    forgiveness for the sins we have committed.

    What will Happen?


    The sky will turn red, it will look like fire & then you will see a large cross in the sky to
    prepare you.

    Everyone over the age of 7 will experience a mystical encounter with J e s u s C h r i s t which will last
    anything up to 15 minutes.

    Pray this prayer to be prepared: Oh my precious J e s u s,embrace me in your arms and allow my head to rest upon your shoulders so that you can raise me up to your glorious kingdom when the time is right. Allow your precious blood to flow over my heart that we can be united as one

If you don't like just don't watch her. Rest assured it will not have a negative impact on her fan base. Betty White did not inherit her fame. She did not become famous for outrageous behavior or become famous via a talented press agent. She EARNED her celebrity status with talent and hard work. Betty White is truly remarkable.

      Well, there's at least one other, Junebug. She should have retired years ago. Also agree with your description of the public.

      So June I am sorry your mother didn't love you as a youngster and you grew up as a hateful individual. To not care for someone is fine, but to feel the urge to get on the internet and make comments like you suggests either a real sense of insecurity or mental illness. I am guessing mental illness and suggest you take your meds and try to learn to co-exist.

    People don't like her. This is all BS. People "ironically" like her as a fad. Just like the big I'm with Coco fad which has wore off and Conan's ratings have suffered. It's sad because people can't control themselves when it comes to crap like this and this poor woman is being tricked into thinking she actually matters anymore where the truth is people see her as a temporary novelty until it's time to jump on the next big thing. You're so damn egotistical America get over yourself.

      People have loved her for decades. This is nothing new. What other 'fad' lasts 40 years? I recall people raving about her and loving her while she was on Mary Tyler Moore.

      Someone that hates the internet is on the internet complaining about everything else he hates. It is not too difficult to figure out you are a pathetic loser.

      Oh my . . . the haters who have nothing better to do than bash one of the sweetest, talented and funny women of the century. It's true that we, in this country, love Betty White. She is an American icon with a heart of gold. Go figure.

    There's nothing wrong with not being a fan of Betty White (though I certainly am!), but there's no call to be rude and/or tasteless about it as some of these comments are. If you dislike her so much, why are you wasting time reading this story and then commenting on it? Go read something about someone you DO like, & with luck no one will have said anything mean or belittling in those comments.

      @RPK, so true....I loved her on the MTM show too. She was also great as Carol Burnett's character "Eunice's" sister "Ellen Harper" on The Carol Burnett Show. Hilarious!!!

    I like Betty White but I'm sick of hearing about her, she's overexposed. Give it a rest, there are a lot of talented people in the world. Stop focusing on only a few.

      Don't click on the article then, fool. You're either an idiot or lonely curmudgeon. The only thing overexposed is your tiny heart and whining. There are very few who are consistently funny as she is. Go wag yourself.

    What is up with CNN having a hard-on for Betty White? She's great, but CNN seems to have a story about her, that usually amounts to something her press team probably wrote, like every other week.

    Are BW's publicist and CNN's editor old college roommates or something?

      I agree Sherri. I have liked Betty White since I first saw her in re-runs of 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'. She was delightfully b#!*@y in 'Mama's Family', and was a sweet dimwit in 'Golden Girls'. I love her feisty character in 'Hot in Cleveland' now and honestly can't imagine the show without her. I realize she is of an advanced age but I hope her health is good so she can continue to entertain for many more years.

    How come Sarah Palin didn't make the list of "celebrites the public don't care for"?? Donald Trump made the list so Palin should be on there too. These two are wanna-be celebrities, not politicians.
