The Most Trusted Celebs Are…

| Filed under: Will SmithTiger WoodsMel GibsonTom HanksMorgan FreemanDenzel WashingtonBill Cosby


According to a new survey conducted by Forbes, it seems the most reliable and trusted celebrities in the US are James Earl Jones and Tom Hanks based on trustworthiness, awareness, and appeal.

As for Jones, the 79-year-old actor topped the list, followed by Hanks, and coming in third was hottie Michael J. Fox.

According to the report:

"A premium was put on likability, reliability and credibility. The stars on our list tend to be endearing characters on screen and off. With private lives that are kept precisely that, they have earned, and maintained, the respect of their fans."

Needless to say, Tiger Woods did not make the list. Neither did Mel Gibson.

Rounding out the list of the top ten are Mike Rowe and Morgan Freeman. They're followed by the number six spot and the only female on the list, Sally Field.

Finishing up the list is Ron Howard, Will Smith, Bill Cosby, and Denzel Washington.

Do U agree? Who do U think should have been included?

  3. 3

    ummm..isn't morgan freeman in a sexual relationship with his (step) granddaughter??

  4. 4

    Interesting that half of them are black.

  5. 5

    okay, how did morgan freeman make it on that list? isnt he dating his step-grandaughter or some freaky like that?? i use to adore him until i heard about that.. ick.

  6. 6

    great lidt but wheres De Niro? he eads a private life and is the best actor of our tim :|

  7. 7

    Mel Gibson is not aging well….

  8. 8

    I love Sally Field! Amazing two time Oscar winner(for leading role).

  9. 9

    Who the hell is Mike Rowe?

  10. 10

    I agree. Di Niro should have been added to the list! And Morgan Freeman and Will Smith should be removed. Sex with step-daughter, scientology? Both not really admirable qualities.

  11. 11

    How come Meryl Streep's not on that list? And somehow sally field made it.

  12. 12

    I adore Tom Hanks.

  13. 13

    Wasn't Morgan Freeman fucking his step grandchild, Will Smith is immersed in Scientology and Denzel Washington is a known adulterer?? I think even Bill Cosby had an affair on Camille at some point, didn't he? I won't even comment on their collective race but c'mon…

  14. 14

    Where are Brad and Angie???? They do great work ON and OFF the screen and overall keep a very private life!

  15. 15

    Morgan Freeman??? Wasn't he marrying the niece he reared since she was a little girl??? Some role model:(

  16. 16

    Morgan Freeman???? WTF! He's screwing his stepgranddaughter right? And why are there no women on there!???

  17. 17

    I am shocked Morgan Freeman made the list. That whole scandal with him sleeping with his step-granddaughter sure took him down a few notches for me.

  18. 18

    Howard Stern

  19. 19

    Okay Sally Field is on there. How come Meryl Streep didn't make the list? She's private, talented, reliable, credible. Come on!

    I love Mike Rowe!! He does all that stuff for discovery channel.
    What about Dustin Hoffman? James Garner? Meryl Streep? Paul Newman (even though hes gone) I totally agree w/ Hanks and Jones

  21. 21

    what about George Clooney???? like hello!!

  22. 22

    I love Michael Fox…but a hottie??? Who the hell is writing this crap?

  23. 23

    Mike Rowe is the guy from Dirty Jobs.

  24. 24

    Hello! First of all does the list only include actors? Lets see Julia Roberts, Betty White, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner, Drew Barrymore, Anne Hathaway to name a few FEMALES since they only thought 1 out of 10 deserved to be on the list. (I think Sally Field was an excellent choice) What about Oprah? She's probably one of the most influencial people on tv. I definitely think this list needs some work.

  25. 25

    I never expected Mike Rowe to be on the list, but I love that guy! Kind of surprised Derek Jeter isn't on the list, though.

    duuuude Darth Vader is the #1 most trusted celeb…… DARTH VADER!

    Ben Affleck

  28. 28

    I think Bonnie Hunt should have made the list. I don't "trust" too many celebrities.

  29. 29

    Glad to see some of these people on there. True artists.

  30. 30

    I would never have included Morgan Freeman (creepy and pedophilic) or Bill Cosby. I'd include Bill Huxtable over Bill Cosby.

  31. 31

    Hmm for those rolling there eyes at Sally Field making this list. Sally Field is a two time Oscar winner in leading role, 3 time Emmy award winning, 3 time Golden Globe winning, Sag award winning actress. Who stars in Brothers & Sisters(a popular show in its 4th season and still going strong). She stars in Steven Spielberg's next film, Lincoln(Liam Neeson), as president Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd Lincoln. With all Sally Field's success, she has always kept her private life to her self and she has always handled herself with class.
    She belongs in this list 100 percent. Just because some people are too ignorant and have no clue of all the great things she has accomplished, all her charities, great roles for the past 45 years. She has been acting since 1965 and is still successful.

  32. 32

    I totally agree with this list - notice they're not nutjobs and keep a low profile. What a compliment to these true ARTISTS.

  33. 33

    Re: soapyskin – TOM HANKS is truly a great actor.

  34. 34

    Man, all these cheating men! Denzel, Bill Cosby, Will Smith, Morgan Freeman….WHATEVER!

    But, I must say, how far American has come….Half are black. Good job!

  35. 35

    this list needs more women!

  36. 36

    LOVE that my absolute all time favorite Tom Hanks made it, he's hilarious and a amazing actor, but where's Meryl Streep? She looks super trustworthy and keeps her private life private. Good for Hanks though totally deserves it!

  37. 37

    Shirley Temple.

  38. 38


  39. 39

  44. 44

  45. 45

    Perez, why is it you've never reported on the Morgan Freeman scandal with his step granddaughter? I haven't looked at him the same since.

  46. 46

    Whoop whoop Michael J fox!!!!

  47. 47

    WHERE IS OPRAH?! this list is an outrage and was probably compiled by lindsay lohna.

  48. 48

    what about matt damon?? he is involved with lots of charities, stays clear of the spotlight unless it's todo with his career and he hasn't had a scandal that comes to mind

  49. 49

    Come on, can't they give Kate Winslet some credit?

  50. 50

    So few women? What about Julie Andrews and Meryl Streep?

  51. 51

    Didn't Bill Cosby cheat on his wife back in the day? Who the hell is Mike Rowe? And How is Betty White not on the top 10?! Bogus.
