Zac Efron Makes Time’s 100 Most Influential


Zac Efron has not only made People’s Most Beautiful People list, but he’s also made Time’s 100 Most Influential People list. The rest of the list is chock-full of A-listers, including six-time honoree Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Jay Leno, M.I.A., Penélope Cruz, Tina Fey, Kate Winslet, John Legend, Slumdog Millionaire composer A.R. Rahman, Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, financial guru Suze Orman and, brace yourselves, the ladies of The View.

Each of the honorees gets a peer-penned testimonial, with Claire Danes doing the honors for Zac.

“I suppose we all know that Zac, 21, is a song-and-dance man,” she writes. “What is less known—and what I had the privilege of learning firsthand—is that he is a performer of great subtlety and vulnerability.

“It seems Zac is not only an entertainer, but also an artist. He is going to make us swoon for many years to come.”
