Seems like former "Golden Girls" actress Betty White really does have the Midas touch.
White scored an 86 percent favorable opinion in the Reuters/Ipsos poll, beating Oscar winners Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock and Clint Eastwood in the survey of the 100 most popular personalities. Some 44 percent of those questioned said they would be more likely to do business with a company if White endorsed it.
At the other extreme, 54 percent of the 2,012 Americans questioned for the poll said they would trust a company less if it were endorsed by Sheen, with Hilton coming in second.
