\u00a0\r\nAs we reflect on another year gone by, Man of Many has compiled this list of our favourite influencers, entertainers, innovators and inspirational people of pop-culture in 2013.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n33. Daft Punk\r\n\r\nWe\u2019ve been waiting for their comeback for so long and in 2013 \u00a0it finally happened, as the legendary electro duo Daft Punk dropped the futuristic, retro-inspired album "Random Access Memories".\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n32. Jason Collins\r\n\r\nThe topic of homosexuality in sports has been a taboo for the longest time. In an unexpected move former NBA star Jason Collins was brave enough to come out as gay despite the ramifications it may have on his playing career.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n31. Pope Francis\r\n\r\nIn stark contrast to his old-school, hard-line predecessors, Pope Franics has shifted the church\u2019s obsession with abortion and homosexuality and taken things into the modern era\u2026 He also has over 3 million Twitter followers.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n30. Jon Ive\r\n\r\nAs the designer behind some of Apple's greatest developments including the iMac, iPod and iPhone, Jon Ive\u2019s work has had a significant impact on the day-to-day lives of people all around globe.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n29. Rob Ford\r\n\r\nThis year a video surfaced of mayor of Toronto, Canada, Rob Ford, smoking crack cocaine in a suspected crack house. After fiercely denying the allegations he eventually admitted to smoking crack, blaming it on a \u201cdrunken stupor\u201d.\r\n\r\nWe wouldn\u2019t normally feature someone on the list for doing the wrong thing, but we had to make an exception in this case. Since the crack smoking scandal, Ford is somehow even more popular than before. The lesson we take from this is that now matter how badly we screw up, there is still the chance that lamest of excuses might actually work.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n28. Danny MacAskill\r\n\r\nI don\u2019t know how the hell Danny MacAskill does what he does on his mountain bike, but it\u2019s beautiful to watch.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n27. Michael B. Jordan\r\n\r\nWe loved him as Wallace in \u201cThe Wire\u201d and he showed us another great performance in the much talked about indie flick \u201cFruitvale Station\u201d.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n26. Victor Cruz\r\n\r\nThe best dressed man in the NFL.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n25. Chris Hemsworth\r\n\r\nYet another Australian taking Hollywood by storm. We suspect that Chris Hemsworth, star of Marvel comics \u201cThor \u201c, will be gracing our screens for some time to come.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n24. Justin Timberlake\r\n\r\nWith this year\u2019s release of the album \u201cThe 20\/20 Experience\u201d and multiple appearances on SNL, Justin Timberlake has come a long way since the Mickey Mouse club.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n23. Idris Elba\r\n\r\nLife after \u201cThe Wire\u201d can be tough (just ask Felicia \u201cSnoop\u201d Pearson), but not for Idris Elba. 2013 he has seen some big performances in films such as Pacific Rim, Thor: The Dark World and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n22. Rick Rubin\r\n\r\n\r\nAs the former co-president of Columbia Records and the co-founder of Def Jam, music producer extraordinaire Rick Rubin, has had a busy 2013 lending his magic touch to some of the year\u2019s biggest hits. Kanye, Eminem, Jake Bugg and The Weeknd are just a few of the artists that Rubin has helped achieve success in 2013\u2026 His Gimli Beard is also quite impressive.\u00a0\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n21. Brad Pitt\r\n\r\nEven though he\u2019s older than ever (50 years of age), the ladies love him more than ever. We have no idea how he does it but he\u2019s definitely earned our respect. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n20. Jon \u201cBones\u201d Jones\r\n\r\nEven with some stiff competition from the likes of Alexander Gustafsson, Jon Jones is still throwing bones and still the UFC Light Heavyweight champ. \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n19. Kit Harrington\r\n\r\nIf you watch Game of Thrones, you\u2019ll know that the life expectancy of each of the characters is quite unpredictable. Thanks for sticking around Jon Snow we can wait to see what you do next series.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n18. Dave Grohl\r\n\r\nFoo Fighters front-man and Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, produced and directed one of the year\u2019s best music documentaries - \u2018Sound City\u2019.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n17. Leonardo DiCaprio\r\n\r\nOne of the few child stars to transition into adulthood without a heavily publicised drug addiction or nervous breakdown. We suggest he author a book entitled \u201cA Child Star\u2019s guide to winning at Hollywood\u201d. With a stellar performance in the lead role of this year\u2019s blockbuster \u201cThe Great Gatsby\u201d, Leo has really earned himself a spot on our list.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n16. Johnny Knoxville\r\n\r\nAfter years of subjecting his body to some of the most ridiculous physical challenges conceivable, the leader of the Jackass crew has once again made us laugh, cringe and wince in the shockingly hilarious \u201cBad Grandpa\u201d.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n15. Jean Claude Van Damme\r\n\r\nAfter watching Jean Claude Van Damme\u2019s Volvo commercial, it\u2019s clear to see that he\u2019s still dangerous. Chuck Norris \u2013 watch your back.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n14. Robin Thicke\r\n\r\nAlthough he looks like he should be crooning on a cruise boat, Robin Thicke teamed up with Pharrell for one of the year\u2019s most memorable music videos.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n13. Peter Dinklage\r\n\r\nOne of our favourite characters from Game of Thrones, Peter Dinklage is a little man doing big things.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n12. LeBron James\r\n\r\nCurrently tipped as the favourite to be crowned this season\u2019s NBA MVP. They don\u2019t call him \u2018King James\u2019 for nothing.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n11. James Gandolphini\r\n\r\nWe best know Gandolphini from his breathtaking performance as Tony Soprano, and who can forget that bad-ass role he played in Tarantino\u2019s \u201cTrue Romance\u201d.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n10. Aaron Paul\r\n\r\nThe loyal, lovable friend, who just never seems to get it right. -Jesse Pinkman bitch.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n9. Henry Cavill Man of Steel\r\n\r\nSuperman - the guy every kid wants to be and the guy that every girl wishes her man was.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n8. Jay-Z\r\n\r\nThe Roc is in the building and still reppin Brooklyn. On top of making hits, he\u2019s also been making babies (with one of the hottest chicks on the planet). Oh Jay-Z, how we all wish we could be half as cool as you.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n7. Mick Fanning\r\n\r\nAussie surfer Mick Fanning is still shredding, winning his 3rd ASP world title at Hawaiian Pipeline.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n6. Will Ferrell\r\n\r\nWill Ferrell had us in stitches once again with the release of Anchorman 2... He\u2019s Ron Burgundy?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n5. Kanye West\r\n\r\nDouchebag, hitmaker, innovator, confident arrogant, deluded, focused and fishsticks, are just a few of the words that come mind when you mention Kanye. Jesus-complex or not, he\u2019s still making headlines for both the right and wrong reasons, but as long as he continues making hits we\u2019ll keep loving Yeezy.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n4. Pharrell Williams\r\n\r\nWith memorable musical collaborations which include Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, and Jay-Z, Pharrell has been killing it this year. Not to mention the success of his \u201cI Am Other\u201d music channel and his contributions to art, fashion and other creative exploits.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n3. Paul Walker\r\n\r\nStarring in one of the most iconic movie franchises of a generation, we all remember Paul Walker for lines such as \u201cdude, I almost had you\u201d, \u201cI like the tuna here\u201d and \u201cI don't have any cash, but I do have the pink slip to my car\u201d. Aside from entertaining us by living his life a quarter mile at a time, Walker was a noble man who dedicated much of his life helping out others conducting humanitarian missions around the world.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n2. Bryan Cranston\r\n\r\nEarlier this year, it was of great sadness that we said goodbye to one of our favourite television shows of all time \u2013 Breaking Bad. Lead actor Brian Cranston made us forget about his past life as the Dad from \u201cMalcom in the Middle\u201d, as we affixed ourselves to the TV to enjoy the hard-hitting adventures of Walter \u201cHeiseneberg\u201d White.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n1. Nelson Mandela\r\n\r\nAs a revolutionary, politician and philanthropist, this year the world has lost a truly great man. As one the most inspirational people of modern times, Nelson Mandela overcame unimaginable adversity including 27 years in prison, emerging as South Africa\u2019s hero of the apartheid struggle to then be elected as the nation\u2019s president. Even in spirit, his contribution to the world has been immeasurable, and his legacy will live on forever.
