Finding a strong role model to look up to, these 5 stars have commented on the famous people who inspire them to be the best they can be. Amazed by the accomplishments of an other or simply the set of principles they live by, these 5 stars are inspired by the lives of great people. Opening up what they admire about their role models, these celebs have candidly commented on the people who they’re constantly impressed by.
Evangeline is impressed by Angelina Jolie’s life and feels she has learnt from her: “The concept of acting in movies, being an international delegate for the UN, adopting children and being a mother is so much responsibility. I have a lot of respect for her. If I could take one item to a desert island with me it would be a child to keep me going. I’ve been working with children for the last ten years in so many different places and I love it. It’s something that drives me. When I was a young girl I used to say I wanted between twelve and twenty kids. Children will always be a huge part of my life.”
Julianne has always thought of Meryl Streep as her role model: ”I can remember when Meryl Streep was on the cover of Time magazine when I was in high school, and I said to my dad, ‘I think I want to do this.’ She is just such a great actress. And she’s someone who has managed to have a family, a marriage and a career.”
Karlie aspires to be like legendary super model Christy Turlington: ”My inspiration is Christy Turlington, she’s an icon. After 30 years she’s still working and she’s an example of generosity thanks to her [Every Mother Counts] foundation.”
Victoria’s Secret model Martha admires her good friend Taylor Swift: ”Taylor Swift – I can’t say enough good things about her. I admire her so much as a person and as a role model for young women. I think we need more people like [Taylor]; people who want to bring women together and not oversexualise themselves. Plus, she’s talented, and she’s just the best.”
Taylor looks up to Oprah and Angelina Jolie: “If you look at Oprah, she’s made so many people happy over the years. She’s made so much money, but she’s given so much of it away. . . . Same thing with Angelina Jolie. She’s been so productive, but she’s used that position to better other people’s lives, and I think that’s where I’d want to be.”
