Every year, Time magazine puts out their issue with the top 100 influential people of the past year. We’ve repeatedly seen both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie appear on the list in various positions, and they’re contenders again this year as well.
What’s different this time is that Time is allowing readers to help decide the ranking of the 100 most influential people by voting on a sliding scale.
As fans, we can head over and give a 100% vote to each of them! To vote for Brad, click here, and use the sliding scale on the left to decide what percentage you’d like to give him. Then you can go vote for Angelina the same way right here.
If you want to see some of the other amazing people on the list, you can start at the beginning and see them all. It blows me away to see Brad and Angelina in the company of presidents, religious leaders, and major political forces.
In Angelina‘s write-up they mentioned that she was in three movies released in the same year (Kung Fu Panda, Wanted, and Changeling) and that she was smart enough to use her insane fame to sell photos of the twins to People in order to give that money straight to charitable causes. For Brad they brought up his Oscar nod for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and they also made me laugh because they mentioned his mustache – we all know how heavily we’ve debated the ‘stache over here at PittWatch! Still, I do with they had acknowledged his continued hard work with Make It Right.
It’s fun to be able to be a part of this year’s list, so let’s go help them out!
