Tom Hanks, America’s sweetheart.
A new Harris Poll claims that for the fifth amount of time in his career, Ben Hanks is America’s favored movie star.
Harris polled above 2200 adults last December, and found of which Mr. Forrest Gump himself, ancient Captain Phillips, the cherished John Bridgeofspies, remains the normal bearer for the National movie actor. Here is the full top five on the Harris poll:
- Tom Hanks
- Johnny Depp
- Denzel Washington
- John Wayne
- Harrison Ford
There were no women in the top five, yet there were three from the top ten; Sandra Bullock came in sixth, Jennifer Lawrence was seventh along with Julia Roberts landed the phone number ten spot. (Clint Eastwood in addition to Brad Pitt were caught between them at 8 and nine.)
Harris’ internet site also reveals the particular favorites among a variety of demographics. Conservatives’ top choice is still John Wayne (exactly who died almost Forty years ago) while liberals desired Denzel Washington. Millennials age 18-35 like Johnny Depp; their third favorite actor is actually Adam Sandler. (Millennials, c'mon.) Harrison Ford had been tops in the Eastern; Hanks ruled in the West. The actor-brad pitt was the california king of the South in addition to “Rural” audiences (who likewise dig Jason Statham, that is an awesome choice).
After Statham (as well as perhaps Nicolas Cage?), I probably would pick Tom Hanks also. His appeal ‘s almost universal; you look through that Harris demo chart and then he pops up over and over; he’utes popular with men and women, Republicans along with Democrats, Gen Xers as well as Baby Boomers, people in the suburbs and people who live out Gulf. And I think it helps of which he’s actually built some great movies over the last couple years (Bridge connected with Spies, Captain Phillips, Cloud Atlas) while the rest of that top 5 is mostly right now there on the basis of their prior work (except probably Harrison Ford, depending on how an individual define “past work”). Along with he’s got Toy Story 4 and a new Dan Dark brown thriller coming soon so he or she could very well top a list for many more a long time.
