I asked this question of a few friends, in relation to something that I’m writing about fatherhood, and I’ve been getting some fun answers, so I thought it might be entertaining to ask the wider blog audience:
What female celebrity or celebrities do you consider to have "good morals," in the sense that you might say of your (real or hypothetical) daughter, "I hope she grows up to have good morals like _______"? (The implicit, unspoken end to that sentence, of course, being "…and not like Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan," etc. etc.) And why?
No questioning the premise of the question, please. :) I know all individuals are unique, and I cherish my daughter’s uniqueness; and further, I know that celebrity hero-worship can be toxic, especially for girls, and I’m not actually hoping Loyette grows up to be just like some celebrity or other. I’m simply trying, for analogical purposes really, to come up with a list of celebrities who people consider to be "moral," whatever that means to each of you.
P.S. Feel free to define the term "celebrity" however you like.
