Brad and Angelina Top Vanity Fair's Establishment List

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have managed to top yet another list. This one is the Vanity Fair “New Establishment List,” which highlights some of the most influential people in society and pop culture.

Brangelina didn’t secure the #1 spot, but they’re not too far down the line at #8. They’re the only two actors in the top ten of the 100 named, and are placed alongside such powerhouses as Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch.

Vanity Fair states: “The tabloid-haunted, globe-trotting couple reminded us that they both can really act with Pitt’s Oscar-nominated performance in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Jolie’s in Clint Eastwood’s Changeling.”

“The couple’s foundation donated $1 million to the United Nations to help the hundreds of thousands of refugees from violence in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

"It also donated $1 million for a cancer center in Springfield, Missouri, named after Pitt’s mother, Jane. Pitt gave $100,000 to the No on Prop 8 campaign in California and said that he and Jolie won’t get married until gay people can, too.”

It’s hard to argue with that! Other stars show up later on the list, like Bono, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, and Oprah.
