By Katie Gray

It’s wonderful to know that there are still kind-hearted, charitable and polite people in the world! When it comes to Hollywood and celebrities in the public eye, there are frequently discussions centering around which stars are down to earth and which are not. Ever wonder which celebrity wives are the sweetest? Cupid has the top ten most down-to-earth:

1. Miranda Lambert: Country cutie Miranda Lambert is not only a talented singer/songwriter, but she is also extremely charitable. Lambert is an animal activist and started MuttNation Foundation to raise awareness for shelter pets and to improve existing shelters. Frequently, she rescues dogs and has taken an active role in finding pets the homes they deserve. The country singer is married to fellow country singer, Blake Shelton and remains down to earth even after her enormous success; she still enjoys a nice BBQ, a cold beer, hunting and having friends and family by her side. This southern belle truly embodies southern hospitality, manners and values.

2. Sarah Jessica Parker: The Sex and the City actress is known for being stylish and fabulous, just like Carrie Bradshaw, the iconic character she portrayed. However; Parker has even more to offer. On top of being a successful actress, she is a model and has her own shoe collection. There are numerous reports of encounters that civilians and celebrities have had with the star, and they are all extremely positive. The Emmy winning actress is married to fellow actor Matthew Broderick and is a proud mom to the three children they have together. She is involved with many charities, volunteers often and was even a bridesmaid in her former assistant’s wedding.

3. Princess Kate, Duchess of Cambridge: Just because one is Royal, doesn’t mean that they are a royal pain. Princess Kateis one of the most gentle and down-to-earth figures in the world. She seems to be taking after her mother-in-law Princess Diana, who once stated, “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” The Princess is full of purpose, and donates her time, notoriety and money towards a tremendous amount of charities and nonprofit organizations. Just last year she added three more to her long list: Place2Be, SportsAid and The Natural History Museum.
