It is no secret that with fame comes a certain amount of responsibility. Young girls are extremely impressionable and celebrities are most of these girls' role models. Celebrities are expected to act a certain way and encourage younger generations to follow in their footsteps. However, sadly, we live in a society that glorifies bad behavior and talentless celebrities. We support actions like sex tapes and D.U.I’s and the younger generation is growing up thinking that it's okay to behave poorly because the women they look up to act in that way. People like Kim Kardashian (and the rest of her clan) have way too much power over this up and coming generation.
The following is a list of some of the most incredible women in Hollywood. They are talented, beautiful and use their power for the better. The ten women on the list are not perfect and they don’t try to be. They are real women who help bring up and empower women from around the world.
10 Michelle Obama
9 Kate Middleton
Ella Marija Yelich O’Connor, better known as Lorde, is a fresh and young singing sensation that has made a name for herself in the past few years. Despite being born in 1998, Lorde is wise beyond her years and is turning into one of the most influential celebrities. She has been extremely vocal about the struggles young girls face in regards to body image. In 2013, she was known as one of the most influential teenagers of the year and she has not stopped since. She is young, talented and grounded and is an incredible role model for young women everywhere.
6 Taylor Swift
5 Jennifer Lawrence
It is hard to find someone in the world that doesn’t adore Jennifer Lawrence. She is gorgeous to look at; she has an incredible personality and awesome wit. Jennifer Lawrence is a great role model for girls because she promotes being a “real girl.” The world of Hollywood often portrays women as these “perfect” beings (esthetically speaking of course). J-Law however, does not agree with these unrealistic standards and is known to be very vocal about it. She uses her charm and humor to get her point across and her charismatic way is admirable. She is talented, beautiful and empowering to women, which is why she is on this list.
3 Emma Watson
2 Ellen DeGeneres
1 Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is one of the most stunning women on the planet and she is just as beautiful on the inside. When it comes to charity, there is nothing Angelina Jolie won't do to help those in need. She has adopted children from around the world in hopes of providing them a better life. Not only is she an actress, a wife and a mother of six, she is also an ambassador for UNHCR. She has travelled around the world, donating both her time and money to those suffering. Jolie has grown into a beyond incredible woman and is definitely a great celebrity role model for young girls, especially due to her controversial past. She is trying to make this world a better place and her selfless actions are admirable.
