Here Is A Brief List Of The Most Popular Celebrities In The World

Have you ever wondered who some of the most popular celebrities in the world are? Let’s put it another way: Who comes to your mind when you think of popularity? Well, for most people, popularity is closely linked with Hollywood stars- and that is fair enough! Hollywood actors are loved and admired worldwide. While watching movies, audiences resonate with their characters, and psychologically, they see themselves in these characters. Thus, they fall in love with them without them even realizing it. So, if Hollywood stars come to your mind when you think of popularity, you will be right at least 70% of the time.

What comes to your mind when you hear the name ‘Nelson Mandella?’ We bet that you should be thinking that he was a revolutionary man; a man who fought for Africans, spent his life in jail, and paved the way for ultimate freedom. Now, if you think this way, chances are, you agree that he was the most popular man – not only of his time, but today too. World leaders quote him in mega-events and speeches, giving Mandela’s example in their presidential addresses.

So, the next category of worldwide fame can be political influence. Apart from Nelson Mandella, Mahatma Gandhi and George Washington are other statesmen who continue to win the hearts of the sea people – after decades.
