22 April 2024

Every year Time magazine names the 100 most influential people of our time. We propose to see who has distinguished himself most in the field of art in 2024. The list includes both those you know very well and those you may be seeing for the first time. The magazine gave the floor to close friends and colleagues of these celebrities: in mini-articles they revealed their personal views on their achievements. Let's get a look.

Michael J Fox

Ryan Reynolds said in an article for Time that he was happy to call Michael his friend. The actor, best known for his role as Marty in the Back to the Future trilogy, lives with Parkinson's disease and, according to Ryan, is the warmest and funniest person. Not long ago, he introduced his 8-year-old daughter to the legendary film and said the following:

I don't need to teach my daughter the level of compassion that Mike has mastered. Or teach her to tell stories the way Mike tells stories. I need to teach her that it's okay to fall a lot. This is the best way to know that you are flying.

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa is a singer and entrepreneur. One of her important achievements is the founding of the editorial platform Service95, which covers cultural topics and solves humanitarian problems.

Dev Patel

The star of “Slumdog Millionaire” quietly but surely moved up the career ladder, honing his skills, and finally made an unexpectedly bright appearance in the film “Munkyman.” The thriller marked Patel's grand directorial debut.

Sofia Coppola

In Sophia, actress Rashida Jones notes the quiet determination of a master artist and the elegant direction of a female director. In her new film Priscilla: Elvis and Me (2023), she told the female version of the relationship between the king of rock and roll and his wife.

Colman Domingo

In 2024, he became an Oscar nominee for Best Actor in the film Rustin. Leni Kravitz commented to Time about his friend:

The characters Colman plays on screen range from a recovering drug addict to civil rights activist Bayard Rustin, and he always reveals himself to be a profound actor and creator.

Kylie Minogue

The singer earned the title “Icon” from Time magazine, which was confirmed by rock musician Chris Martin.

It seems like Kylie is always 10 years ahead of everyone else. She's an artist who knows how to give back by creating songs that fans will enjoy for years to come. Kylie creates a space where everyone can be themselves. When I look at her, I feel hope. She proves that there are people who know how not to judge.

Hayao Miyazaki

Miyazaki is a man who exists entirely in his art. His new animated film "The Boy and the Bird" was awarded an Oscar this year. Guillermo del Toro admitted to Time that the Japanese director shaped his childhood.

Miyazaki's work evokes a rare emotion - a thrill of awareness of a type of beauty that is impossible in the real world and therefore exists only in his films. However, he is also a brutal realist in his depiction of greed, war and human rage. He knows that we make and break the planet and that humans are the best and worst of our world.

Jeffrey Wright

The actor was nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in the film American Fiction, which became one of the breakthrough and relevant projects of today.

America Ferrera

The actress burst into a new era with a bright and furious monologue of Gloria from “Barbie,” deservedly receiving an Oscar nomination. She is one of those modern women who is involved in the creation of films of important social significance.
