Here are the most admired people in the world


Who tops the most admired in 2015 list?

Angelina Jolie is the most admired person in the world, followed by Bill Gates.

Education activist Malala Yousafzai came third in the list, which was compiled by YouGov.

In December, 25,000 participants from 34 countries were asked: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman]do you most admire?”

YouGov compiled the results, and discovered some interesting things:

  • Jason Statham is the 8th most admired man in Russia
  • Stephen Hawking (8th) is more admired in Brazil than Pele (9th)
  • Jackie Chan is the 15th most admired man in the US
  • Celine Dion is the 9th most admired woman in China and the 10th most admired woman in Russia
  • In Britain, the politician we most admire is Barack Obama in 3rd place, and the most admired British politician is Nigel Farage in 11th
