Who are the least trusted Hollywood actors in America? Apparently, a few bona fide sci-fi stars.
A major magazine poll to determine which celebrities are the most trusted ended with frequent sci-fi alums Tom Cruise and Kristen Stewart at the very bottom of the list. The survey was conducted by Reader’s Digest, with trustworthiness defined as something “earned with a person's integrity and character, exceptional talent and drive, internal moral compass, message, honesty, and leadership."
Cruise (War of the Worlds, Minority Report) is a stalwart of the genre, and most recently scored with the sci-fi hit Oblivion. Stewart, though relatively young, has already made a name for herself at the center of the Twilight series, plus Snow White and the Hunstman.
So why are they among the least trusted? Hard to say. Stewart allegedly had a well-publicized affair recently, while Cruise’s public persona has taken a few shots in recent years due to some strange episodes (i.e. jumping up and down on Oprah’s couch).
On the other side of the spectrum, Tom Hanks topped the list of most trusted, follow by Sandra Bullock, Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep.
Do you think the list gets it right? Who would you rank as the least trustworthy stars?
