Jennifer Lawrence - Jay-Z and Jennifer Lawrence make Time 100 list

Jay Z and Jennifer Lawrence have been named among the most influential people in the world by Time magazine.

The publication has printed its annual Time 100, and the special issue of the publication features seven covers, each featuring a member of the list, including the rap mogul and the 'Silver Linings Playbook' actress, as well as business mogul Elon Musk, Senator Rand Paul, teen activist Malala Yousafzai, Li Na and Aamir Khan.

Also appearing on this year's list are President Obama - his eighth inclusion - and his wife Michelle, plus several celebrities, including Justin Timberlake, 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston, Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis, talk show host Jimmy Fallon and singers Christina Aguilera and Beyonce.

The issue - which is on sale from tomorrow (19.04.13) - features a profile of each entrant written by another high profile star.

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg profiled Jay-Z, writing: ''Jay-Z embodies so much of what makes New York, New York. A kid from a tough neighbourhood who grows up in public housing, overcomes lots of bad influences on the street, never lets go of his dream, makes it to the top - and then keeps going, pursuing new outlets for his creativity and ambition.

''When no one would sign him to a record contract, he created his own label and built a music empire - before going on to design clothing lines, open sports bars and, most recently, represent professional athletes ... In nearly everything he's tried, he's found success. (He even put a ring on Beyonce.) And in doing so, he's proved that the American Dream is alive and well.''

Meanwhile, Jennifer was praised by Jodie Foster, who wrote: ''You'll remember where you were when you first felt it, how you were stuck to one spot like a small animal considering its end. The Jennifer Lawrence Stare. It cuts a searing swath in your gut. A reckoning. I remember going to the cutting rooms of 'Winter's Bone'. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be.''
