Post time 2012-2-13 23:56:29 |Display all floors
More than 200 thousand of our readers voted, along with our staff,                  to determine the Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2011. The men who made                  the list come from different walks of life, but they're all  visionaries                  who completely own their respective fields. They  not only challenge                  themselves to become Better Men every day,  but they're dedicated to                  furthering the future of mankind (even  Charlie Sheen, in his own strange way).                  These are the men  history will remember as having defined 2011. So who made                  the  list?

[quote]Why is Simon Cowell no 49?

Despite all the accolades Steven Tyler received during his inaugural run as judge on American Idol, it was clear from the get-go that the Aerosmith front man would be unable to match the incisive and insightful commentary that Simon Cowell, his predecessor, became famous for. Yes, American Idol still achieved massive ratings, but that was pre-X Factor. This fall, the acid-tongued Brit debuted his massively anticipated talent show. While there was no shortage of buzz, thanks to its overseas success and the long-awaited reunion of Cowell and his former better half, Paula Abdul, ratings on this side of the pond have been less than stellar. Cowell’s reported $80 million net worth speaks volumes, but we're not sure his new show can usurp Idol as America’s No. 1 talent competition. Still, Cowell's performance portfolio says we shouldn’t bet against him just yet

Why is Oscar Pistorius no 48?

                  Never has an athlete made eighth place look  so good. When Oscar Pistorius of South Africa came in last in his heat of  the men’s 400m semifinal at this summer’s IAAF World Championships in Daegu,  South Korea, it was his biggest win in a career full of them. You see, as a  child, Pistorius had both legs amputated (due to congenital absence of the  fibulae) and replaced with bladelike carbon-fiber prostheses, which some say  gives him an unfair advantage when running against two-footed humans. We say  hogwash! Pistorius’ achievements should not be relegated to a byproduct of his  disability, but instead as a result of his rigorous training and limitless  heart. Now Pistorius turns his attentions to London 2012, and all we can say is,  Godspeed, Blade Runner



Oscar Pistorius on making the 2011 Top 49

This is a great honor for me to be named as one of the 49 most influential men of 2011 by AskMen. Thank you to all the readers who have voted for me. This is truly humbling.

Why is Bradley Cooper no 47?

Bradley  Cooper’s not really a cocksure jerk; he just plays one in the movies. In  fact, no one is more surprised by his late-in-life success than Cooper himself.  Once destined for middle-of-the-closing-credits irrelevance, Cooper has parlayed  the success of 2009’s The Hangover into an unlikely spot atop  Hollywood’s A-list. 2011 saw the permanently scruffy star carry a film on his  own for the first time, as a genius who juices in Limitless. And that  was just the calm before the storm: This past summer, Cooper got smashed, and so  did box-office records, as The Hangover Part II became the  highest-grossing R-rated comedy ever. Bradley Cooper -- proving that the 30s are  the new 20s, one blockbuster movie at a time

Why is Justin Timberlake no 46?

Justin  Timberlake sure loves proving people wrong. When critics griped that the  former N’syncer couldn’t make the transition from tween idol to respected  artist, he went out and won a bunch of Grammys. When the same critics said he  wasn’t a good enough actor to go from stage to screen, he gave one of the best  performances of 2010 in The Social Network. This year saw Timberlake  emerge as a full-blown leading man, thanks to winning performances in Friends with Benefits and Bad Teacher. The transformation  might finally be complete after his next film, the sci-fi thriller In  Time, introduces us to Justin Timberlake, action star. We may not know  exactly what to make of a gun-toting Timberlake, but by now we know better than  to bet against him.
