Top 10 Celebrity Role Models

Jun 14, 2012

Celebrities may look like they’re just having fun, basking in the spotlight and milking up the stardom. But not all of them abuse their celebrity status. Many stars have proven to be worthy idols, from overcoming great odds to investing in great causes. Kidzworld lists the top 10 celebrity role models.

No. 10: Jennifer Lawrence

Since landing the role as Katniss on The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence has been dubbed a role model. While many people have called Jennifer fat, she doesn’t buckle under the pressure to be too thin. She’s a normal, healthy weight and wouldn’t want to be any different. That confidence is worth looking up to.

No. 9: Justin Bieber

Unlike some, Justin Bieber uses his celebrity superpowers for good, not evil. On many occasions he’s surprised adoring fans or sick children to give them a day to remember. He also supports many charities.

No. 8: Dakota Fanning

In 2001, Dakota Fanning became the youngest person ever to be nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award. She was 7-years-old. Now, the 18-year-old beauty has admittedly become a role model. Even as a busy actress, she graduated from her high school and is now studying at New York University.

No. 7: Emma Watson

After all the fame and fortune that came with being part of the Harry Potter franchise, you’d think Emma Watson would have buckled under the pressure of her star status. Instead, she used her earnings to return to school. She attended Brown University. She also did something few female celebs do - she chopped off her locks. This brave and confident gal is definitely a role model.

No. 6: Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson has blossomed since appearing on American Idol season 3. She began her career as a successful singer and actress, even earning an Oscar for her first film, Dreamgirls. She became the spokesperson for Weight Watchers and transformed her body, empowering herself and girls everywhere to have the confidence to do the same.

No. 5: Selena Gomez

Not only does 19-year-old Selena Gomez have her own TV show, an amazing album and her own clothing line, she has also helped with several organizations, including the ENOUGH project to help the Congolese citizens and their endangered amphibians.

No. 4: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio has come a long way from his role as pretty boy Jack Dawson in Titanic. He is now the ultimate activist, trying to educate the public about the world’s environmental issues through documentaries and his own foundation.

No. 2: The Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers have overcome a lot. They lived quite meagrely until the bros hit the big time. And even though Nick has diabetes, he doesn’t let that get in the way of his dreams. They’re a relatable band with wholesome values, who also started their own foundation - Change for the Children.

No. 1: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is a kind-hearted person who keeps clear of the rag mags by living a clean and honest life. She is the ultimate role model, not only for that, but also for the 20+ charities and foundations she’s involved with, including Children in Need, Red Cross and a campaign to protect children from online predators.
