In a letter Time editor Edward Felsenthal explains how the list is a “reflection of its moment”.
“Time’s annual list of the world’s most influential people is a designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now,” he wrote. “The Time 100 isn’t a measure of power, though many on the list wield it. Nor is it a collection of milestones accumulated. As our staff considers candidates, we often find ourselves wowed by those with stunning lifetime achievements.”
Other film and TV stars included were Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, and Wonder Woman Gal Gadot. Check out the full list here.
