Top Ten Nicest Celebrities

These are the movie, television, music, sport, or whatever stars that always seem to put on a happy, optimistic, welcoming face whenever they're in public or otherwise.

The Top Ten

1 Tom Hanks Tom Hanks Thomas Jeffrey "Tom" Hanks is an American actor and filmmaker. He is known for his roles in Splash, Big, Turner & Hooch, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, You've Got Mail, The Green Mile, the Toy Story Franchise, Cast Away, The Da Vinci Code, Captain Phillips, and Saving Mr. more.

Along with being my favourite actor, he has such a charming, kind presence about him, and he talks much like an everyday person despite being among the biggest names in Hollywood! He is definitely the nicest celebrity I know as well as the most talented and pretty much the most famous--and that's a rare combination!

I was hoping Tom Hanks would be on this list. He's such a modest gentleman. I really like him. - Britgirl

Can be a role model for actors... Unlike Leonardo Dicaprio, of course. - Fan_of_Good_Music

Nicest man I’ve ever met

2 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Sweet, polite, gracious. Jackie even won two awards for being well-mannered! - BobG

Jackie is INDEED the nicest celebrity. People just say nasty things and destroy her because they are jealous of her kind personality, and that she is different from the greedy Hollywood celebrities. Jackie is apolitical, and she doesn't stain her career with politics like the other Hollywood celebrities do. She really teaches people to learn how to love and not to hate, and to ignore haters, because there are terrible people in this world.

What a nice personality she has.

Why be a fan of celebrities that do horrible stuff in life if there's jackie evancho?

Awesome guy, sad that he's dead now... - PeeledBanana

I love watching all his movies. He's not just a nice person but he makes people laugh in a way that shines. He may not be with us here today but I will always laugh and smile and his talented beautiful face! And herd is a quite I love:

Be fearless in the PURSUIT that sets your soul on fire. And I think Robin Williams did that exact thing.


Legend. RIP.

Fame didn't change her, and she is so funny! - keycha1n

She’s so arrogant no. 4 is a joke

Hollywood needs more people like him!

He's nicer than almost every person above him on this list!

Darren is so nice. Like, when I was in Toronto to see one of his shows, he woke up from a nap, heard a fan had been waiting outside his tour bus hoping to see him, found out where she had gone, walked ten minutes to the restaurant at which she and her friends were eating, introduced himself, and took selfies with them, all to make a fan’s day (life). When I met him, he introduced himself, even though it was at HIS show, then he complimented my shoes and congratulated me on coming out, once I told him I would not have come out when I had, were it not for Blaine on “Glee.”

17 Ellen DeGeneres Ellen DeGeneres

His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

Showing up to a kid fan's show and tell dressed as Jack Sparrow is epic.

He is always nice to kids especially kids in hospitals
But so is Chris Pratt

Lady gaga is nice

Comparing her to Al-Qaeda is not only extreme, but inconsiderate and unacceptable. - keycha1n

She isn't wasn't and has never been nice. She's a top threat to our generation like Islamic State & Al-Qaeda destroy the countries, Lady Gaga destroys human being inside. - Fan_of_Good_Music

40 Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson (born November 22, 1984) is an American actress, model, and singer. She made her film debut in North. more.

Known to be very arrogant. Stuck-up. She thinks that because she is famous that she's better than people who aren't famous. This woman treats you like dirt ( many people in France who have met her are all saying that she's a rude person ).

I rather watch suicide squad than read that comment. And isn't Gwyneth Paltrow's moral code.

Anybody who think she's arrogant has the i.Q of a walnut!

Shut up!

She only cares about herself!

She regularly make donations to charities and her fans. Ahe also sends christmas gifts to her fans and hold secret sessions for her fans. This girl really love her fans..

So nice

Have u heard what she did for a 90-something-year-old fan for Christmas? Look it up; you'll see. She is also a great pop star. I love her. She's gorgeous with or w/o make-up. On YouTube, if you look up Taylor Swift Christmas gifts, you'll see a video of her. Her fans (random ones) found gifts in their mailboxes--from Taylor. She's amazing...and supposedly Christian.

He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, earning over 60 million subscribers. more.

If you dislike him, then why did you vote for him? You do know that you have to vote to comment right? Also, he's so nice. I've never mind people cussing. HE'S PLAYING HORROR GAMES FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

PewDiePie is a YouTuber, not a celebrity. There's a difference, though most people don't seem to have recognized that (which is typical, now days). Plus, he isn't even really that nice since he curses, "disses" people, and is just stupid.

43 Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

There we have it! Such a nice guy, he has been in a lot lately, and I can not name a movie I have seen where he does not play a great trustworthy character. This also shows in his personality. Awesome guy!

What and amazing and inspirational person!

47 Lzzy Hale Lzzy Hale Elizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. She is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American hard rock band Halestorm, which she co-founded in 1997.

She is amazing, mainly because she's so friendly and humorous with fans and everyone else, and when she gets on stage, turns into a total beast, and what really makes me admire her is how open she is, she talks in great detail and even jokes about her own sex experiences, also she told everyone she was bi and wasn't embarrassed at all to admit either of those things, she is hands down the most amazing celebrity to ever exist, I LOVE YOU LZZY

What a nice, friendly person, 1 of the reasons she's my favorite singer is that I've never seen a singer with such a big sense of humor, a gigantic love and appreciation for her fans, and still gives a killer performance whenever she sings and plays her guitar, and in person she's very humorous and very playful especially in her interviews, she even did an interview with these 2 little year old girls, how sweet of her, love ya Lzzy

She's so nice and a really humorous person, I find it funny that pop singers and rappers are often jerks in real life and yet rock and heavy metal singers are often really nice in real life, how weird is that?

Her music is so good

She is sometimes nice, but sometimes she is an annoying diva.
