Hollywood is fickle. One day, you're a movie star; the next, you're -- well, still a movie star, just not a respected one. Take Harrison Ford. He was Han Solo and Indiana Jones! But, Ford's 'Star Wars' and Indy days are far behind him -- which is why he's No. 23 on GQ's list of the 25 Least Influential People Alive. The reason? "Here's a man who has spent years going to great lengths to let you know just what an inconvenience it is for Harrison Ford to be in the movie you're watching. 'Cowboys & Aliens' would have been a bad movie regardless, but Ford made matters worse by sleepwalking through his scenes and treating the publicity for the movie like someone was asking him to build a Malaysian prison." Luckily for Harrison, he isn't the only actor to make this unfortunate countdown.
Coming in at No. 20 is 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon Star' and Victoria's Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Despite the exorbitant amount of money the movie made, Rosie's attempt at Hollywood glory has been reduced to "that girl who subbed for Megan Fox in the 'Transformers' franchise." Rough.
Gwyneth Paltrow is No. 16. According to GQ, "Paltrow spent most of 2011 performing on awards shows, pushing shit on Goop that no one except Gwyneth Paltrow would buy, and unleashing her awful cookbook upon the world... Is it any wonder we all loved watching her die in 'Contagion'?"
Last but not least is January Jones, the only movie star to crack the top 10. Although she's best known for her role as the icy Betty Draper on 'Mad Men,' her portrayal of Emma Frost in 'X-Men: First Class' had critics and audiences cringing every time she was on screen.
The full list is available over on GQ.com, and is absolutely worth the read, unless you're a fan of anyone on it.
