Trashy types such as Paris Hilton, Kardashian, Miley Cyrus etc etc etc seem to be the stand outs whereas going back you had Audrey Hepburn, Maya Angelou, and the like

Yes with the ones you see around. You don't really see that many good role models.
I never had a role model growing up. For me I really liked dick van dyke. I didn't watch the dick van dyke show. I did watch diagnosis murder, chitty chitty bang bang. and Mary Poppins. I think the reason why I liked the guy. It's because he reminded me of how one of my grandpas are. As in they kind of look, sound, and act a likeAt least to me they do. Which they are both around the same age. So I think my type of funny is influenced by him.
If anything I think this Japanese guy is the worlds greatest role model for most. :D That or bruce lee would be a good role model. Even though he's dead still. He was bullied as a kid and hated how it made him feel. So he worked his ass off becoming the best. Which he achieved. Plus he has some good quotes.
