So despite the fact that she published a cookbook, made multiple cameo appearances on “Glee” and turned up at almost every single awards show of the year to sing Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You,” Gwyneth Paltrow landed squarely in the middle of GQ’s just-released list of the 25 Least Influential People of 2011.
Why? Mainly because she published a cookbook, appeared on “Glee,” is still pushing the whole GOOP thing and exists. From GQ: “Is it any wonder we all loved watching her die in ‘Contagion?'”
Also making the list was “Mad Men’s” January Jones, who per GQ, “spent 2011 serving as human topiary in the new ‘X-Men’ movie, getting knocked up, and passing every waking hour looking like someone stole her last box of Parliaments.”
Ouch. It’s a far cry from the magazine’s 2009 cover story, which lauded Jones’ Betty Draper as the “most complex, mysterious woman on television today.”
More entrants from the entertainment world: Sisters Tia and Tamara Mowry (aka the anti-Kardashians); Hank Williams Jr., who compared President Obama to Adolph Hitler; actor/comedian Paul Reiser, whose attempt at a comeback was a total fail; Arnold Schwarzenegger; OCD tweeter Tila Tequila; “Transformers” Megan Fox replacement Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; rapper Pitbull, and Harrison Ford.
Also worth noting: Doomsdayer Harold Camping, who predicted the world would end in first May, then October 2011.
