Why is Anonymous no 8?

When it’s all said and done, hacking scandals will be front and center for the year of 2011. It all started with Anonymous, the loosely connected group of “hacktivists” who are providing a parallel internet-based activism buttressing the Occupy Wall Street protests. Earlier this year, the loosely connected group of “hacktivists” took on companies that refused to accept payments for the website WikiLeaks. Since then, microgroups have been popping up all over the place and attacking everything from major companies like Sony and Lockheed Martin to massive financial institutions like Citibank and the International Monetary Fund. In fact, they could be reading this right now and planning an attack on AskMen because WE LIKE TO HAVE SEX WITH ROSIE O'DONNELL!!! Wait -- who wrote that?

Why is Ryan Gosling no 9?

When a video of Ryan Gosling breaking up a fight between two men in Manhattan recently went viral, nobody seemed too shocked at the actor’s willingness to intervene. Instead we just casually added “being a superhero” to the growing list of things Gosling is really, really good at. Others include acting, singing, writing music, being charming, having a six-pack, dating starlets, not taking himself too seriously, wearing suits, making women drool, making men jealous, living in New York, wearing his hair just right, choosing scripts, shaving, being a millionaire, riding a motorcycle, and being -- in our eyes -- the entertainer of the year.

Why is Lionel Messi No 10?

It’s hard to believe that Lionel Messi is 24. He has floppy hair like a boy and is shy and slight of build. He also makes a reported $43 million a year and is considered one of the best soccer players ever to lace up a pair of cleats. This past season, the Argentine forward scored a jaw-dropping 53 goals in 55 appearances and led FC Barcelona to the Champions League title, the La Liga crown and, in many people’s minds, secured their spot as the greatest team ever assembled in soccer or otherwise. The only thing missing from Messi’s already illustrious career is major success on the international stage. Once that happens, he may go down as the greatest of all time.

Why is Cadel Evans no 11?

Cadel Evans is exactly what cycling needed. With the once invincible Lance Armstrong’s reputation in a continuous free fall thanks to doping allegations, Evans emerged as the new face of the sport by becoming the first Australian and, at 34, the oldest man in 88 years to win the Tour de France. Most important, he did it clean. But almost as remarkable as Evans’ rise to the top of his sport is the personal transformation that many believe has finally come full circle. Once considered one of the coldest, most ill-tempered cyclists around, the new Evans is warm, approachable and even sympathetic. Winning tends to have that effect on people.

Why is Jon Stewart no 12?

Well, well, well... Look who it is. Last year’s most influential man makes a repeat appearance on our list, but really, was there ever any doubt? As long as Michele Bachmann keeps being, well, Michele Bachmann, Jon Stewart’s place in culture will always be a crucial one. But this year has seen Stewart evolve into far more than the most visible voice of the left. For instance, when Newsweek published an unflattering photo of Bachmann on its cover next to the headline “The Queen of Rage,” Stewart blasted the lefty mag for what clearly was a cheap shot. So no matter what political stance you take, what cable news channel you work for, what baseball team you root for, or what flavor of ice cream you prefer, if Jon Stewart thinks you’re being a moron, he will call you on it.

Why is Andrew Mason no 13?

If they ever make a movie about Groupon’s CEO Andrew Mason, don’t expect it to be directed by David Fincher. While the director’s sinister sensibilities served Facebook’s murky mythology well, Groupon’s story is much sunnier. The Chicago-based daily-deal company has been around for only three years, employs 3,000 people and recently turned down Google’s attempt to buy the company for a whopping $6 billion. And at the heart of it all is Mason, an admittedly quirky and wildly eccentric visionary, whose bizarre office antics (he once hired a man to walk around the office dressed as a ballerina, just to see the reaction) have become the stuff of legend. But will Mason’s playful disposition scare off investors with Groupon on the cusp of an initial public offering? So far, it's been a somewhat rocky road to going public, and we wonder if this early sensation will pan out as hoped.

Why is George Clooney no 14?

This fall, George Clooney might have to pack away all those “Most Charming Movie Star in the History of Movie Stars” awards, because his trophy case is about to need a little more room. After a yearlong hiatus from the big screen, Clooney is back with a vengeance. First he pulls double duty as director and star of the political thriller The Ides of March, before starring as a newly single father in Alexander Payne’s The Descendants. Last summer, rumors swirled as to why Clooney ended his two-year-long relationship with Elisabetta Canalis, but we can take a pretty good guess: It was to make room for his new roommate in Lake Como, who goes by the name Oscar.
