Betty White has been voted America’s favorite and most trusted celebrity, a new poll indicates.

White, the former ‘Golden Girls’ funnywoman who is currently starring in TV Land’s ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ beat out Paris Hilton and Charlie Sheen as the person ‘whose endorsement of a company would be most likely to drive business,’ according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2,012 Americans.


And she didn’t have to go to the Marine Corps birthday ball to do it.

The 89-year-old animal lover won an Emmy last year for her ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting gig, has appeared on ‘Community’ and in Snickers commercials and was named Associated Press entertainer of the year last December. Perhaps that trustworthy face of hers could help do some damage this fall on her ‘Punk’d'-style prank show ‘Betty White’s Off Their Rockers’?

The other most favorable celebrities behind White are Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman (who tied for seventh place with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge), Will Smith and Johnny Depp.

Topping the not-so-hot list are: Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears (who ties for third with Kanye West), Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Kim Kardashian, Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and LeBron James.
