Time magazine has announced their 100 Most Influential People list and plenty of Hollywood stars got a mention. Each honoree was paired up with another star who spoke about their influence.
James Cordon was one of the honorees and written about by Elton John.
“James is one of the most hardworking and talented people you will ever meet. But that alone doesn’t explain his extraordinary success. Anyone — friends and fans alike — can tell you that James doesn’t take himself, or others, too seriously. And that’s why he’s able to make us laugh, cry and sing — sometimes all at once.”
Viola Davis was covered by Meryl Streep.
“Her gifts as an artist are unassailable, undeniable, deep and rich and true. But her importance in the culture — her ability to identify it, her willingness to speak about it and take on responsibility for it — is what marks her for greatness.”
Brie Larson shared what inspires her about Emma Stone.
“What I really admire about Emma the person — as well as Emma the actor — is that she is never afraid to show us the most difficult thing you can show the world: yourself. What that entails is not always pretty. But with Emma, it is real, and it is beautiful.”
