According to a new survey, the “most liked” celebrity of 2014 is a 77-year-old African American man.  And I know what you’re thinking . . . but no, it’s NOT Bill Cosby(???)  It’s Morgan Freeman. 1,100 people ages 13 to 49 were surveyed by E-Score . . . a consumer research service that provides information to media and entertainment companies.  It has nothing to do with Facebook “likes.”  Here’s the Top 25:

 

1.  Morgan Freeman

 

2.  Tom Hanks

 

3.  Sandra Bullock

 

4.  Betty White

 

5.  Will Smith

 

6.  Clint Eastwood

 

7.  Bruce Willis

 

8.  Julia Roberts

 

9.  Leonardo DiCaprio

 

10.  Jennifer Aniston

 

11.  Ben Stiller

 

12.  George Clooney

 

13.  Ellen DeGeneres

 

14.  Eddie Murphy

 

15.  Dolly Parton

 

16.  Nicolas Cage

 

17.  John Travolta

 

18.  Whoopi Goldberg

 

19.  Sylvester Stallone

 

20.  Taylor Swift

 

21.  David Letterman

 

22.  Oprah Winfrey

 

23.  Jay Leno

 

24.  Alec Baldwin

 

25.  Arnold Schwarzenegger

 

 

It’s interesting that this data was collected presumably for marketing purposes . . . and 19 of the 25 celebrities listed were at least 50 years old, including the Top Four.  So, they’re OLDER than the demographic that participated in the survey.

It seems like movies, TV shows, and commercials are always focusing on young stars to attract a younger audience . . . but of the 25 most liked celebrities by people ages 13 to 49, only ONE was younger than 40:  Taylor Swift, who’s 25. After that, the next youngest is Leonardo DiCaprio, and we’re all well aware of how he’s beloved by young people . . . particularly models, who like to ride on yachts.
