Time’s annual list of the 100 most influential people of the year is out and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ranked in at #21, beating Oprah (who ranked #22) and teen sensation Miley Cyrus (who came in at #59). Actor George Clooney wrote an accompanying article about the superstar parents noting, “It is one thing to talk about the problems of the world and quite another to actually try to change things.”
George continued to describe Brad and Angie’s work in Pakistan, and how “they have tended to the poor and sick in Africa.” He also mentioned how they shelled out $1 million for the victims in Darfur, among other humanitarian efforts. “There are hundreds of people who could be honored for their good work, but I’ve seen Brad and Angelina firsthand, and their commitment together is truly impressive,” he adds.
In a Time reader’s poll of who they think is most influential, three celeb moms and dads made the top 20: Heidi Klum #4, Will Smith #11, and David Beckham #15. No Angie and Brad, oddly enough.
Who do you think is the most influential celeb mom or dad of the year?
