TIME Magazine has released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the world.
Several actors and filmmakers made the TIME list. They include Leonardo DiCaprio, Alejandro Iñárritu, Taraji P. Henson, Priyanka Chopra, Idris Elba, Melissa McCarthy, Mark Rylance and Charlize Theron.
“Leo’s talent is limitless, but his secret has always been pretty simple: he’s real. He does his homework. He knows what he’s talking about. That’s how he takes himself back in time 200 years to create an Oscar-winning, bear-brawling, powerhouse performance in The Revenant,” said John Kerry, US Secretary of State about Oscar winner, Leonardo DiCaprio.
Actor Dwayne Johnson said about Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, “When we connected around the time she startedQuantico, we immediately hit it off. She has drive, ambition, self-respect, and she knows there’s no substitute for hard work. We always quote the saying ‘Wear your success like a T-shirt, not like a tuxedo,’ and she really does—as big a star as she is, as global as she is, as beautiful as she is, there’s this interesting quality of relatability.“
