Tom Hanks is America's most trusted celebrity, according to a new poll.

The Forrest Gump star, a three-times Oscar winner, has maintained his clean-cut image throughout his three decade career, and his fellow Americans have awarded him by naming him the most honest celebrity.

He is followed in second place by Sandra Bullock, with Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep and poet Maya Angelou rounding out the top five.

Director Steven Spielberg, Microsoft boss Bill Gates, Tv host Alex Trebek, philanthropist Melinda Gates, and actress Julia Roberts round out the top ten in the trustworthy stakes in a poll by the Reader's Digest.
