Why does culture, Hollywood and celebrity matter? Because the top four most trusted people in America are celebrities according to a Reader's Digest trust poll.
Reader's Digest teamed up with research firm The Wagner Group to poll over 1,000 Americans and discover which individuals and the ideals they represent have earned our confidence.
So, who made the cut?
1. Tom Hanks, actor
2. Sandra Bullock, actor
3. Denzel Washington, actor
4. Meryl Streep, actor
Out of the top 10 most trusted, six are out of Hollywood.
