Fame #TopTenThursday

Welcome to this week's #TopTenThursday. This is a fun writing challenge, that is hosted by Tamara of Confessions of a part-time working mom. Her, myself, and other bloggers, come together and post weekly Top Ten lists, which we create based on a chosen topic. I hope you enjoy reading my list, as much as I loved creating it.

Last week, we made a list of our Top Ten Things We'd Save if Our Home Were On Fire. This week, we are revealing our Top Ten Favorite Famous People. They can be living or dead. Really anything goes. So, if you know me at all, you probably already know, I am so EXCITED about this topic!! Like... I am doing a happy dance as I type this!! I am not super into famous people, or anything, but I love opportunities to discuss *MATT DAMON*. 

Without further ado, in mostly random order, here are my top ten favorite famous people... 

1. MATT DAMON. Matthew Paige Damon. Do I really need to say more?! Of course I do. LOL So, yes, Matt Damon is undeniably my favorite famous person. He is basically my favorite famous person ever. He is really my favorite human. Gigi is slightly higher on my list of famous humans, but just slightly. I would LOVE to be his best friend. I am certain he is an awesome friend. He is an awesome human being. I just know he would make my life better, just by existing within it. He is a remarkable person. He is intelligent, talented, kind, and wonderful. I love how he uses his celebrity status for good. I love how he has maintained his integrity. I love how he does so much good in this world. He will genuinely make this world a better place in his lifetime, and he has already started. Plus, I love his movies. He is just the best, and he is my favorite. Okay? Okay.

2. Robert Nesta Marley. Bob Marley. He is one of my heroes, and one of my favorite human beings to ever live. So many people just associate him with marijuana, and that makes me sad. He was so much more! So, so, so much more! He was so wise and full of love. I am so against racism and judging others. I believe in loving others, and spreading love and peace. He was such a beautiful soul. Plus, his music is amazing. His song "Waiting in Vain" is my most favorite song EVER. His lyrics are fantastic, and don't get me started on the rhythms. He stood for some of the best things in the world. He stood for peace, harmony, love. He stood against hate and judgement and violence. He did so much good in the short time he was on Earth. He changed lives, and his legacy is living on. It lives on through his music and his children. You should totally go to his website and buy stuff from their shop. For one, a portion of the proceeds go to the charity!! Plus, I own many of their shoes and headphones. They are AMAZING quality. Also, seriously, do not delay... Try Marley Coffee NOW!!! You will NOT be disappointed. He was so amazing. I am so sad that I never got to meet him, or hear him perform live. My fingers are crossed I get to attend a concert one day, in Heaven.

3. Ellen. Ellen DeGeneres. She is so famous, that I really did not even need to say her last name. She is also very kind and generous. She is hilarious. I am a sucker for people who can make me laugh. She is genuinely awesome. She really tries to make the world a better place, and fights against hate. She loves to help others. She is so amazing, and I would love to know her personally. I think being her friend would be AMAZING. Something tells me, she would keep me laughing constantly. I absolutely adore her. She is so incredibly funny, and she is so famous, but she has never become full of herself. I absolutely adore her. She does so much good!!

4. Robin Williams. If you read my blog post back in 2014, after he died, you probably already know I love Robin Williams (Bob is mentioned as well). I say I love him, because I do. He may be gone, but he still lives in my heart. He has gifted me with so much laughter and wisdom over the years. He will forever be one of my favorite comedians. He was a remarkable human being. He was beyond famous, but always remained humble. His death really showed us all, that we never truly know what struggles others are enduring. His death hit me hard, even though I never met him in person. He is one of my favorite actors of all-time. His films are some of my very favorites. He was so beautiful. A true treasure.

5. Julia Roberts. I love her. So very very much. She is an amazing actress, and a beautiful person. My list of favorite movies, contains most of her movies. I just absolutely adore her. I adore how kind and authentic she is. I love her despite her insane level of fame, she stays true to who she is. She is just an awesome actress and person. She is another person, who I would love to be best friends with.

6. Emma Watson. I adore her so very much. She was amazing as Hermione. She is also just an awesome human being. The way she stands for her beliefs, so unapologetically, yet respects others, is amazing. She is going to do so many amazing things in her lifetime. I can just tell. She is AMAZING. I adore her. She will champion some of the changes this world so badly needs, and she will do it with poise and integrity.

7. Keanu Reeves. Keanu is extremely talented. I adore him as an actor. He is also an awesome human being. He has never let his fame get to his head. He does a lot of humanitarian work, and makes lots of donations. He has taken cuts in pay, just to ensure movies can be made well, and with everyone getting fair compensation. He has known great personal loss, and sadly I can relate to it. He is just an awesome person. It would be an honor to know him, and be his friend.

8. Wally Lamb. I absolute adore Wally. He is the author of my favorite book, "She's Come Undone". His writing helped to heal my soul, and led me to follow my heart and write. He writes wonderful books, and he is genuinely a wonderful human being. If you have not read his books, I strongly recommend them! You will definitely thank me later!

9. Mother Teresa of Calcutta. I feel like this one needs no explanation. She was one of the most amazing people ever. She was completely selfless. She was wise beyond her years. She was a truly beautiful soul. I love her so much. I am grateful she was recently made a Saint. Well deserved.

10. Willie Nelson. I love him. I just absolutely love him. His music is some of my favorite music ever. I love the humanitarian work he does. I don't do regrets, but I have admitted, a day will come when I regret never having seen him in concert. It is on my Bucket List, to see him live, and to shake his hand and thank him for the music. I really need to do it, as I know opportunites to do so will end. I just never have the money for tickets, and the last two times he was close, I could not take the time away from Gigi. I still have hope, and maybe my wish will come true. His music means so much to me. He is an awesome man. His talent is undeniable, and not matched or exceeded by many.

So, there you have it, my top ten favorite famous people. There are so many more I could have listed, but I felt this was my list. I hope you enjoyed it! What about you?! Who are some of your favorite famous people?! Are any of your favorites on my list as well?! 

Don't forget to check out the other Top Ten Thursday lists from this week: 


  1. First of all, I am proud of you. You limited yourself to giving Matt only the one spot 😂
    Great list! Inlove that Ellen is on it! I didn't even think of her. Living in 🇨🇭 I only ever see her when somebody posts a video on FB.
    We have Mother T in common! ❤️

    1. We all know Matt is like numbers 1 through 100,then the others come into play!!

      I loved your list!!!

  2. Fantastic list! I love Matt Damon in The Martian and can't wait to see Emma Watson as Belle in the new live action Beauty and the Beast! After posting my list, I remembered Ellen Degeneres, but I decided I should stick with the five women I already had listed… Next time! And I still can't believe Robin Williams is gone. :( You knew what you were doing when you wrote this list! Wish I had thought of some of these people. :)

  3. Matt Damon - I've not seen that many of his movies but they are entertaining

    Robin Williams - a great actor, it's sad how he died but we can still celebrate him by watching his movies

    Keanu Reeves is on my list too, he seems like a nice guy and his name is so darn wonderful

    everyone has their favorites so I can't really judge your list but you have given such good reasons to like these people.

    have a lovely day.

  4. Love your list and knew that you'd have Matt as number one. Emma and Mother Teresa were on my long list but didn't make the final cut. Agree with every word you wrote about Emma as she is gracefully amazing. Had not heard of Sally so will have to look him up.
