JK Rowling: Most Fascinating Person of 2007

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling was just named Barbara Walters‘s “Most Fascinating Person of 2007.” No new interview was aired, just old clips of the British writer were shown.

Next most fascinating people: sexy Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, her soccer superstar husband, David Beckham, pop singer Justin Timberlake, Emmy Award winner Katherine Heigl, Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson, former President William Jefferson Clinton, and MySpace media moguls Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe.

Congrats JK! And congrats to Mojo for guessing correctly!

  • aiohrngf

    not on the list cause the way he thinks hes so interesting makes him NOT.

  • Michael

    Many people may not agree with this choice however she has done what few have and that is get millions of kids and adults alike literally salivating over a book. In an age where television and video games rule that is quite an accomplisment.

  • Michael

    On a side note…it was 17 years in the making i believe.

  • [~Famous~] – The God.

  • bored realtor

    she deserves recognition for her outstanding harry potter books. the entire series is fun and enjoyed by all ages. but why did she have to ruin it and say that dumbledore is gay?? information nobody needed.

  • nauseating!

    Why the h*** were the Beckhams’ on her list?? I’ve LOST respect for Babwa! The Beckhams’ are the most over-produced, ANNOYING ppl. on the planet! Fascinating? NO! More like NAUSEATING!

  • sammyt

    Wow, she looks beautiful.

  • Jude

    Snooooze – did ANYONE watch this?

  • ann

    why the hell should have zac been on the list? NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT ZAC, HOLY HELL. not everything is about him. he’s not interesting, he’s not fascinating, he’s not anything. give the people that were actually ON the list their credit and stop making every little thing about zac! (or vanessa and ashley.)

  • Sienna

  • Mojo

    Whoo hoo, a shout out from Jared for guessing right!
    Anyone who has read the Potter books understand what an amazing mind Jo Rowling has and she deserves all the accolades (the planning of the books and the details involved were genuis).
