Inspiration: Rachael Ray 2nd most trusted celebrity

Clearly I am not alone in my unadulterated admiration for Rachael Ray. Forbes is reporting that Rachael is second only to Tom Hanks as America's most trusted celebrity. The list is as follows:
Michael J. Fox
James Earl Jones
That's right, America trusts RayRay more than Oprah -- probably because she is not a billionaire yet or a liar. Anyway, this is one of the most accurate celebrity lists that I have seen, aside from the quantitatively provable 'richest' lists. The 'sexiest' lists usually lose me when they include people like Carmen Electra, Jenny McCarthy, Denis Leary, and Keith Urban.
However, this 'most trusted' list is pretty accurate, except for Reese Witherspoon, who I'm sure would talk shit about you behind your back and gloat that her husband is hotter than yours.
Despite Reese's potentially duplicitous personality, the trust people have in her is not surprising because we clearly trust talented actors more than untalented actors -- though I still think Felicity Huffman should have won the Oscar last year. As represented by Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington, most of the actors on this list are Oscar winners, some having won multiple times.
The list has also confirmed a long-held belief my friends and I have had that older black men are generally more trustworthy than any other group of people. Dennis Haysbert should take Reese's spot on the list. Even repressed white women trust him. You're in good hands with Allstate.
