When we talk about a celebrity being trustworthy, we mean how reliable his brand value is. We don’t know what a celebrity is like in their real life; we’re only familiar with the celebrity brand they have cultivated in the industry. So, because most of us will never know how trustworthy a celebrity is in their real life, we don’t trust them. Instead we trust their image. So, don’t panic if you don’t see a Kardashian or a Bieber in this list.
Read on as we’re going to rank the top ten most trustworthy celebrities, going from least trustworthy to most trustworthy.

10. Michael J. Fox

As he returned to TV in 2013 with a show called the Michael J. Fox Show based on the actor’s life and his struggles with the disease, the show didn’t do so good and had to be pulled from NBC’s lineup.
9. Meryl Streep
To start with, Meryl Steep has 18 Academy Awards nominations, which is the most for any actor, male or female.

This actor had a rough start in his life. At 13, he faced a cocaine problem, when he reached 16, he was charged with attempted murder to which he plead guilty and was sentenced to 2 years in prison. Having such a rough and tumble past doesn’t usually land you in the list of most trustworthy celebrities, but his regrets, redemptions, success as an actor and being such a family man earn him a spot in this list. The kind of person who has made mistakes, hit rock bottom, learned a lesson and then rose from nowhere makes a very trustworthy man. Mark has also been involved in many charitable works.
6. Jennifer Lawrence
The actresses acting skills, her image as an It-girl and her comments in an interview with Barbara Walters like, “It should be illegal to call someone fat” definitely earn her a spot in this list of most trustworthy celebrities. After her role in The Hunger Games, she rose as the Hollywood’s unsuspecting It-girl.

4. Oprah Winfrey
