If you’d asked us yesterday what Emma Watson and Kanye West have in common, we’d have said not a lot. But that was before TIME Magazine revealed their annual 100 Most Influential People List. Both A-list names made the grade this year – with Kanye topping it – alongside the likes of Taylor Swift, Alexander Wang, Kim Kardashian – dubbed a ‘Titan’ by America’s domestic goddess Martha Stewart – and Bradley Cooper.
While the list spans everyone from world leaders, artists, charity campaigners, journalists and performers, we’re not surprised to see 25-year-old Emma’s name making an appearance. Since making her on screen debut as Hermione Grainger in one of the most famous film franchises ever, she’s gone on to become a poster-girl for modern feminism, campaigning tirelessly for equal rights and working for the UN.
Kanye taking the top spot, closely followed by other half Kim at number 13, cements their status as the ultimate power couple, and bagged Kanye one of the coveted five magazine covers. Since they’ve already broken the internet, we can only assume total world domination is up next!
