Most Don't See Celebrities as Good Role Models

Following this year’s Golden Globes, the first award show of Hollywood’s #MeToo era, even fewer Americans see celebrities as good role models.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 12% of American Adults think most Hollywood celebrities are good role models, down from 20% who felt that way a year ago. Sixty-six percent (66%) say most celebrities are not good role models, up from 60%, while 22% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
