British Girls Admire Lopez

LONDON (AFP) – Sporting heros like footballer David Beckham topped a list of role models for British teenage boys while girls looked to singers and film stars such as Jennifer Lopez, according to a study.

Business leaders such as US technology tycoon Bill Gates and British entrepreneur Richard Branson were also popular, according to the research by Medical Sciences for a unit of Nationwide Building Society which was released Tuesday.

Overall, the young people quizzed said the one person they would most like to be was:

— David Beckham

— Bill Gates/Richard Branson

— Jennifer Lopez

— Victoria Beckham, David’s wife and former Spice Girl

— Actress Jennifer Aniston/singer Britney Spears
Of the boys, aged 16-21, 40 percent chose sports stars and 21 percent opted for business leaders.

As for the girls, 35 percent went for musicians and 26 percent chose film stars.

Just nine percent of girls named business figures and five percent opted for sports personalities.

Similarly, only 10 percent of boys singled out musicians and 16 percent cited film stars.

The study asked 1,080 young people aged 16 to 21 last month.

It was conducted for Nationwide’s UCB Home Loans.
