Celebrity Influence and Identification: A Test of the Angelina Effect

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Angelina Jolie’s announcement that she is a BRCA1 carrier and has had a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy was met with widespread support as well as speculation about its possible impact on the public. These speculations were the subject of a Time cover story, entitled “The Angelina Effect.” Although there is anecdotal evidence to support this hypothesized Angelina effect, empirical tests are lacking. To explore possible links between Angelina’s announcement and public knowledge and behavior, 355 adults were surveyed immediately after the announcement. Guided by a theory of celebrity influence, the survey assessed participants’ identification and parasocial interaction with Jolie, cancer-related beliefs, and genetic testing intentions. Results supported the theory’s predictions and provided preliminary evidence of an Angelina effect.
