NEW YORK, NY(rushprnews) March 28, 2007 – LIME Celebrity Poll Reveals Al Gore Has Most Influenced Americanâ€™s Views On The Importance Of Living A â€œGreenerâ€ Life; Julia Roberts has the Most â€œOrganicallyâ€ Grown Body; and, No Surprise — Britney Spears Needs to â€œLive the Changeâ€ Towards a Healthier Lifestyle.
To coincide with the launch of LIMEâ€™s national â€œLive The Changeâ€ campaign, the #1 healthy living brand surveyed adult Americans to find out their views on celebritiesâ€™ influence on the healthy living and green sector. As the leading brand dedicated to providing information and entertainment on living a healthier, greener and more balanced lifestyle, LIME (www.lime.com) today released survey results featuring a selection of celebrities known for their healthy and green lifestyle, plus those in the public eye who have garnered headlines for their â€œless than healthyâ€ lifestyles. The survey produced some surprising and not so surprising results. Full survey and results are posted on www.lime.com. Highlights include:Oprah is “the Model for Healthy Living” according to LIME’s “Live the Change” pollÂ as she tops the list (at 47%) of LIMEâ€™s query about celebs who have most helped Americans re-evaluate their own views on the importance of living a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. Of the remaining celebrities listed in the survey, Lance Armstrong comes in at a healthy second with 37%, but Ozzy Osbourne (8%) and Tyra Banks (8%) are tied at the bottom of the list.Al Gore certainly has a seat in the “Greenâ€ house” with 79% of Americans choosing him from the list of notables in the survey as the one who they feel has most influenced their views on the importance of living a “greener” life. Robert Redford (11%), Leonardo DiCaprio (6%) and Susan Sarandon (4%) may need to produce an Academy Award winning documentary to raise their profiles in this category.Bono leads LIMEâ€™s list of celebs when it comes to raising awareness about his cause — AIDS: Bono brought in nearly half of the votes (48%) among the listÂ of celebs in LIMEâ€™s survey asking which one has made the greatest positive impact on raising social consciousness about their causes. Of the remaining celebs listed in the survey, Angelina Jolie came in second (25%) for her work with the U.N.,Â with significantly less Americans selecting Ben & Jerry (16%)Â for Saving the Planet and Harry Connick, Jr. (11%) for Katrina.Julia Roberts tops LIMEâ€™s list of celebs who has the most â€œorganicallyâ€ grown body â€“ no additives or nips and tucks! Of the celebs listed in LIMEâ€™s survey, Arnold Schwarzenegger may want to get some tips from Julia Roberts (who drew 67%) on how to achieve an â€œorganicallyâ€ grown body â€“ where only Mother Nature has played a role. Itâ€™s certainly not easy being â€œall naturalâ€ when youâ€™re in the publicâ€™s eye â€“ even Madonna surprisingly only drew in 17%, with Arnold trailing behind at 12% and Adrian Grenier with only 3%.Britney Spears needs to begin to “live the change” and take steps towards striving for a healthier and more balanced lifestyle — and stick with it! Of the celebrities listed in LIMEâ€™s survey who have received press headlines for their troubled lifestyles, Britney topped the list with a whopping 81% saying she needs to “live the change.” In the eyes of Americans, very few feel that Lindsey Lohan (14%) needs to re-assess living a healthier and more balanced lifestyle, while there was barely a blip of Americans choosingÂ Eminem (4%) or Mischa Barton (1%).
Americans most want to â€œpartner yogaâ€ with Cameron Diaz! When Americans were asked which of the celebrities from LIMEâ€™s survey they would most want to â€œpartner yogaâ€ with, 44% of Americans chose Cameron Diaz to do yoga with as a partner, more than double the folks that would want to partner with Jada Pinkett Smith (22%), L.L. Cool J (18%), and Mark Wahlberg (17%).
Americans would most like to spend a day doing “green” things like recycling with “green” celebs like Salma Hayek (37%) and Brad Pitt (30%). Significantly fewer Americans chose the other celebs listed in the LIME survey: Sting, who brought in only 19%, and Daryl Hannah, who brought in only 13%, will have fewer fans wanting to go to the local dump to sort trash with them.
