  • darkangel

    Yay for Brad and Angie. Nice!

  • marina

    The do have influence due to the media being so interested in them , It is good that they canalize (sp?) this interest so people learn and maybe get interested in supporting good actions.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/ZanessaIsLove101 amy

    I hate Barack and Hillary. YAY McCain!!!!!! YAY MILEY!!!!! MILEY RULES!!!!!

  • antidenial
  • traveler

    Why is Miley Cyrus on this list? She hasn’t done anything to influence anyone. All she’s done give a concert as a pretend rock star.

  • Happy at the beach

    Love Brad and Angelina. I love the way they use their celebrity for good and to bring attention to the less fortunate in the world. It’s good to read the positive comments rather than all that Team Jolie/Team Aniston crap.

  • I think Angelina jolie should be separate on the list from brad pitt because she’s the real deal and not a faker like her baby daddy. How long did it take for him to get actively involved in charity? someone needs to tell that wannabe that he aint angelina jolie.

  • http://www.jamieinsider.com 007

    Well at least Brad’s trying to focus more on charity unlike hundreds of other celebrities who are fully capable of helping out but chooses not to.

  • Jill

    Oh man! Famous is hurtin’ for certain and I’m lovin’ it! ROTFLMBAO!

  • Piper

    Definitely deserve it. You don’t get any more influential when every thing you do and any move you make is “breaking news”. they cope and do good things with their fame so it doesn’t get any better than Angelina and Brad.

  • an oldie

    Congrats Brad and Angelina for being recognized for your efforts to make the world a better place to live.

  • CHRIS

    THANKS JJ! I THINK THEY DESERVE TO BE HIGHER ON THE LIST. BECAUSE THEY DID A LOTS OF THING TO MAKE THE WORLD A BIT BETTER PLACE TO LIVE. THEY DONATE SOME OF THEIR TIME AND MONEY, EVEN THOUGHT THEY ARE QUIET BUSY TO THEIR OWN WORK AND FAMILY. THANKS AGAIN

    They are a unified couple who work in unison, like with the Jolie-Pitt Foundation. Brad is Angie’s full partner in every way. Angie would not be with a faker, she is an honest person and so is Brad. They both fully support each other’s humanitarian interests. They are the both the real deal.

    Accept reality. Brad is a permanent part of Angie’s life. Your attempt to denigrate him is pathetic.

  • kathy

    good for them…they are the real deal

  • marianna

    Yes Brad and Angelina should be on this list. Good they are in front of Oprah.

    How cool that in a two week period Angelina makes the top 15 on FHM sexy list, People mag most beautiful, most stylist mom and now TIME most influential.

    She makes my list as one of the best.

  • he he he

    wasn’t Brad #5 last year?so it is down grade for him and all Entertainment’s peeps

  • no longer a lurker

    together they make a difference. and they are really involved and knowledgeable in what they do, unlike those other celebrities, now those are the real famehores.

  • Faye88

    Congratulations Angie & Brad for being included in this year’s Time 100. Well deserved!!!! Especially being listed under the “Heroes and Pioneers” category. Way to go!!!

  • [☆F a m o u s☆]

  • jess0

    Good work AJ and BP!

    They are amazing and truly deserve to be there.

    I can’t believe Kevin Rudd got NO. 10. LOL. For those who don’t know, he is the new Prime minister here in Australia. Thats just so funny.

  • Mrs. Smith

    Thanks Jared.

    They definitely deserve to be on that list, and much higher too. I’m sure that a lot of celebrities, and non-celebrities, who have recently become more actively involved, were influenced in some way by the JP’s. They truly speak from the heart, and are both beautiful inside and out.

    Can’t wait to see them at Cannes!!!

  • sharon

    ===============

    They are first in the “Heroes and Pioneers” category. Time lists 2 categories before that one.

  • jess0

    The media would have to be the most influencial tool over people and it seems as if star power dictates the media. Maybe the influence of the Hollywood heavyweights has been overlooked in the Time poll?

  • Wow

    Congrats to Brad & Ange. They walk the talk, and people who have half the brain understand that.

  • the real tita

    #: vivi, stupid vivi…do you read at all? How many people do you know have followers who will gladly die for him? How many do you know has so p*issed China off as much as he did that they are willing to wipe his country off the map? That guy has been chosen leader of a whole country and a world religion since he was a toddler. He is the ultimate Golden Child.

    #16: stop trying to pass yourself off as a fan. You’re here to stir up sh*t and that’s all you’re doing. Divide and conquer only works for dummies. They are a unit…live with it.

  • Alex

    Just love the fact that they beat Okra!

    The only thing hurting is your little three inches which you’ve worn down to a nub from beating it off every night on this blog. Didn’t your momma ever tell you that you can go blind or insane from doing that?

    I don’t know about blindness but you’re well on your way to insanity. So you just keep banging that little nub of yours and you’ll be inside a padded cell before the year is out.
