10 Celebrities Who Have Maintained A Perfect Image


Hollywood has a way of turning out some pretty unbecoming behavior among its celebrated A-list celebs. From Lohan to J-Biebs, many celebrities become victims of the wealth and fame they’re chasing. Very few celebrities are immune to all of the pressures and easy access to the party life, but this list has tracked down some rare gems that have kept their heads’ above water and out of the tabloids. We’re counting down some of the ultra clean celebs that have maintained a squeaky-clean, perfect image.

10. Blake Lively

This Gossip Girl star has maintained a relatively low profile out of the gossip columns of tabloid magazines. Blake has kept clear of the party circuit and sworn off drugs and alcohol all together. In an interview with Vogue, Lively stated that the only reason she’d be awake at 4am is if she was baking cookies. Cue woodland forest animals and sing-along Disney tune. She also launched her own lifestyle blog called Preserve, but recently shut it down feeling that it didn’t live up to its potential. She’s planning another website though, one that will combine storytelling and shopping in an attempt to give consumers an affordable luxury lifestyle.

9. Nicole Kidman

We can’t hold her marriage to Tom Cruise against her; she was married to him before he ever jumped on Oprah’s couch or relocated to Florida to be closer to the Church of Scientology. Kidman’s film career has stood the test of time, and this Academy Award-winning actress proved that life after divorce can be far more successful. She’s since remarried and had children with her second husband, Keith Urban. Despite tabloid rumors of Urban’s infidelity, Kidman has maintained her marriage and her family, and hasn’t let media gossip get in the way of her perfect life and image.

8. Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman has a long list of hit Hollywood flicks under her belt, and when she’s not busy filming and promoting, she’s been getting a degree in psychology from Harvard, doing graduate work at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and speaking as a guest lecturer on counterterrorism at Columbia University. I guess that explains why Portman has never been spotted stumbling out of nightclubs like many of her contemporaries.

7. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow is considered to be a part of Hollywood’s elite despite not being in many A-list films. Her reputation for her healthy lifestyle has earned her some of the claim to fame. Paltrow adheres to a very strict “clean eating” diet of mostly vegan superfoods. She abstains from all junk food and alcohol, and publishes her diet and exercise regimen on her website Goop. Gwyneth and her business partner, who is also a personal trainer, Tracy Anderson also seems to have plans to launch a prepared-food business. It would appear that Paltrow is more of a brand of blonde perfection than an actress.

6. Taylor Swift

The “Shake It Off” singer may have some recent beef with fellow pop star Katy Perry, but T-Swift has nonetheless maintained a squeaky clean image free from drugs, alcohol, and partying. In interviews, Swift often focuses on her family and her relationship with God. In spite of having many high profile relationships and very public breakups, Taylor always seems to use the hard time productively, turning out chart topping hits that demonstrate her strength and refusal to conform to someone else’s standards. She is considered one of the best celebrity role models for young girls.

5. Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum is in her 40s and has four children, but this supermodel has worked tooth and nail to maintain a beach body worth every drop of envy imaginable. Even in the face of her very public divorce from Seal, Heidi maintained composure and grace and a hugely successful hosting career. Heidi is a Hollywood A-lister who’s been able to manage it all and has never faltered. Even after Donald Trump’s ignorant remark that she’s “no longer a 10,” Heidi stepped up and responded with a video in which a man wearing a Donald Trump mask rips off Heidi’s “10” rating to reveal her “9.99” rating that she embraced fully. The humor and empowered response showed Heidi trumped Trump.


4. Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston is one of Hollywood’s darlings and everyone adores her. Her extremely public divorce from Brad Pitt generated many team-Jen fans and the support around her recent marriage to Justin Theroux, may be seconded only to the royals. Her dedication to finding true love and her refrain from plastic surgery or excessive Botox has made her a role model for other women who want to have it all. In the face of all the drama over the years, Jen has always remained classy and put her best face forward. Her fan’s adoration is a product of the breath of fresh air that Jen gives to the superficial land of Hollywood.

3. Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman is a man of countless talents. He’s an Academy Award nominated actor, a Tony Award winning superstar, a ripped, hunky man, and an admirable philanthropist. Jackman became involved with the Laughing Man Foundation after a trip with his wife Deborra-lee Furness to Ethiopia. The couple are ambassadors for World Vision Australia (of course they are) and wanted to learn about the role coffee can play in helping to alleviate extreme poverty. As a result of the trip, Jackman opened 2 Laughing Man cafes in New York City, and all of the profits will be donated to the Laughing Man Foundation to fund entrepreneurship and education programs in Ethiopia. Jackman’s journey is chronicled in the documentary Dukale’s Dream.


2. Beyoncé

Beyoncé has maintained a relatively clean profile despite being one of the most famous artists in the world. Despite the little hiccup of the elevator incident involving her sister and husband, everything else is flawless, even her Instagram photos are highly edited and consciously published as a way of creating the perfect image. Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are always spotted in the whims of marital bliss and have generated a lot of buzz around their too good to be true relationship. Beyoncé’s spotless record has even inspired books like How to be Beyoncé, a meditation on striving for perfection and maintaining control. Justin Bieber…call Beyoncé’s PR person ASAP!


1. Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks is an A-lister in every respect of the word. He’s been prolific in making movies for the past 30 years, been nominated for countless awards for his great performances, and he’s moved behind the camera and produced many films. His marriage to Rita Wilson is one of longevity that dispels the Hollywood cliché of quickie marriages and dramatic divorces. And even though Hanks got his start at a relatively early age, he’s never garnered a reputation for partying or for developing so much as an ego. Tom Hanks makes the top of our list for being a super nice actor you could picture living next door.
