Bill Gates and Angelina Jolie are once again the world’s most admired man and woman in YouGov’s annual study of which public figures the people of our planet look up to.

Tech pioneer and philanthropist Gates has topped the list every time YouGov has conducted the survey, while Jolie has also come first in each of the three surveys since 2015 when separate male and female categories were introduced.

This year, the study expanded to cover the views of people in 35 countries – the most ever – and means that YouGov interviewed more than 37,000 people to compile the list.

Entertainers dominate the female top twenty, with 14 of the most admired women being actresses, singers or TV presenters (although some, like Emma Watson and Angelina Jolie, are also notable for their humanitarian work).

Angelina Jolie has nothing but good words to say about the Queen
The actress appears in a documentary which features the Queen and Sir David Attenborough

Angelina Jolie has described the Queen as a “lovely lady who really cares about people around the world” in upcoming documentary The Queen’s Green Planet about Her Majesty’s plans to protect the environment. The programme also stars David Attenborough.

Jolie – who goes to Namibia with her six children in the documentary to highlight the importance of forest conservation in Africa – explained what she told her young family when they asked why the Queen believes strongly in preserving nature.

“What it comes down to it you say to the kids, ‘You know really, you don’t know her, you can’t understand all that it means to be a queen and all that,'” says Jolie.

“But you try to say, ‘You know she’s just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future, and she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures.

X Ways That Angelina Jolie Inspires Women

4 Ways That Angelina Jolie Inspires Women
A decade ago, Angelina Jolie was just another Hollywood A-lister. In fact, being from an acting family herself, she represented a side of Hollywood which, at least from the outside, seems to be even more privileged and pampered than regular Hollywood. To have called Angelina Jolie a ‘role model’ at that stage of her life would have seemed, perhaps, a little over the top.

Of course, Jolie is a talented woman, her success is not just about her family connections. Many women have looked up to Angelina Jolie since her career first hit the big time. However, it is only relatively recently that her philanthropy and activism have attained an undeniable level of legitimacy.

Whenever a Hollywood star steps out of the limelight to pursue philanthropic projects, their efforts are often met with a degree of skepticism and mistrust. However, in the case of Angelina Jolie, she has repeatedly shown herself to be the genuine article. She is articulate and knowledgeable about the various subjects that she speaks on. As a result, she has done a great deal to further conversations surrounding a variety of women’s issues.

Speaking Out Against Rape and Sexual Violence
Long before the #MeToo movement got started, Angelina Jolie was giving talks at international forums, including the United Nations, highlighting the plight of women around the world who face the daily threat of sexual violence. Jolie has been vocal on a number of humanitarian issues, but she was one of the first celebrities to call attention to the plight of women around the world, not just in the United States.

Adopting a Child Alone
When Angelina Jolie first made plans to adopt Maddox, an orphan from Cambodia, she planned to do so with her then-husband – Billy Bob Thornton. However, the couple split. This didn’t stop Jolie; she pressed ahead with the adoption process and raised him by herself until she met Brad Pitt.

Raising a child as a single parent is tough. A quick glance at the parenting section of Mantasticpursuits.com will reveal to you a plethora of challenges that parents, especially single parents, face. The fact that the parenting challenges facing single fathers match those faced by single women illustrates how universally challenging the experience is.

Excelling in Her Field
Angelina Jolie isn’t just a successful actress; she has also proven herself to be a very capable director with two critically acclaimed war dramas under her belt now. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for Jolie as she made the transition from actor to director, however, she has proven herself to be just as formidable off-screen as on it.

Feminist Roles
As well as proving that women can attain success in many fields and roles simultaneously, Jolie has also portrayed a number of distinctly feminist roles on screen, from Lisa in ‘Girl, Interrupted’ and, of course, as the iconic Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider films.
Angelina Jolie is a truly inspirational woman. Not only has she attained an impressive level of success in her professional life, she has also led an exemplary personal life and given women everywhere something to aspire to.
