In a world of over-exposure, it’s fairly obvious that celebrities are lauded for their actions, appearances, and talents. Images of your favorite celebs are probably flitting through your mind right this minute, yet out of these who are your celebrity role models? An even better question would be what makes them role models over other deserving individuals?
It’s definitely not a secret that we look to public figures who grace the spotlit stage for inspiration, and they absolutely inspire action because they are so admired in Western culture. We’ve rooted around the web and through magazines to bring you the top seven celebrity role models along with what makes them prime examples we should all follow.
Harry Potter and The Bling Ring star Emma Watson is a shining example for all young women out there. She promotes change through embracing the rights of women around the world and became UN Women Goodwill Ambassador back in July of 2014. Her crowning achievement to date is her speech at the UN promoting the HeForShe campaign, which encourages men and young boys to exercise and support equal rights for women all over the world as actively as possible. She’s also a very outspoken advocate for more female directors in cinema — something that’s a very hot topic in Hollywood as of late.
