Let's face it: It's almost impossible to be a celebrity in the year 2021 without attracting some internet hate. Sometimes that hate is deserved, sometimes it's not — but either way, it's bound to happen when you're in the public eye.
HOWEVER...there are a select few celebrities out there who've seemingly achieved the impossible: They have basically zero haters. These people are so universally beloved that even the worst internet trolls can't touch them.
Well, a recent viral Reddit thread asked people to name some of the most unhateable celebrities in Hollywood...and boy, did they deliver. Here are some of the top responses:
1."Rick Moranis. The guy stopped acting to take care of his kids after his wife’s death."
2."Maggie Smith. Professor McGonagall is the most underrated character in the Harry Potter series. She is so funny, even when she is strictly serious! But I mostly praise Maggie Smith for her line delivery in general."
3."IF YOU HATE JULIE ANDREWS...why?"
4."Anybody who says anything bad about Mister Rogers is a monster and I don’t want to associate with them."
5."Dolly Parton! She’s so cool. How could you hate on someone who isn’t a billionaire because they keep donating so much to charity?"
6."Alex Trebek. RIP."
7."Someone said Jim Henson. I 100% agree…you can never go wrong with Sesame Street or the Muppets."
8."Tom Holland. There is debate over who is the best Spider-Man, but Tom hasn't done anything controversial."
9."One of the best things about 2020 is that we didn’t lose Betty White."
10."Dev Patel. Seems like the most lovely of people, and everyone who works with him sings his praises."
11."Hugh Jackman. I’ve literally never read or heard a bad thing about him."
12."Paul Rudd is just like his characters in real life. There's a great Hot Ones with Paul. He's just an honest, funny dude!"
13."Chadwick Boseman. Fucking legend. Every Marvel fan loved that man."
14."Weird Al. He seems like such a sweet guy. Every time I've seen him on camera, he just has such a caring attitude. Not to mention, he's genuinely funny and doesn't overdo it."
15."I love how Danny DeVito can play some vile characters, but his personality outside of them can overshadow that and make you a fan. Like, normally I would be alarmed and not support a slimy, alcoholic, former businessman who crawls around the floor of his dirty Philly apartment, but it’s Danny, so I’d probably join in, tbh."
16."Keanu Reeves. A real man of the people!"
17."Robin Williams. If I found out someone genuinely hated him as a person and it wasn’t just a 'don’t care for his movies' situation (which still seems unheard of), I don’t think I’d be able to continue knowing that individual. That’s just a red flag."
18."Jack Black. He's probably one of the top 10 happiest human beings. He always looks like he's enjoying himself the most, which is amazing."
19."Tom Hanks comes to mind. I forget where I read it, probably on Reddit, but someone described him as the only person who could drunkenly punch out a nun in an alley and the world would wonder, 'Damn, what was wrong with that nun?'"
21."LeVar Burton. I met him in person. He made an appearance at the Department of Education during Barack Obama's administration. A whole room of young kids, and he read Shel Silverstein's 'Peanut Butter Sandwich' (with the king whose mouth got stuck) in his perfect Reading Rainbow voice. It gave me chills."
22."I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone with a bad story about Daniel Radcliffe."
