The annual TIME 100 gala brings together the world’s most influential individuals and this year’s honorees speak to the wide range of impact that these game changers have in the world.
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway was on the red carpet tonight in New York at the 2018 Time 100 Gala at Jazz at Lincoln Center and spoke to the honorees. “Big Little Lies” star Nicole Kidman, who was there with husband Keith Urban, said when she found out she was in the historic issue she “was in shock. I said, ‘What for?!’” The Time 100 list also includes President Donald Trump. Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah told AJ, “I’m on a list with Trump, that’s something I thought I’d never say!”
Olympic medalist Adam Rippon commented, “When I read that Cher gave my introduction, that when I took my phone and I said I’ve had enough of this! This is crazy! What she’s done as the mother of a trans son, she’s so many people’s champion, and it’s just unreal.”
Superstar Jennifer Lopez, who attended with boyfriend Alex Rodriguez, told AJ, “It’s been an earth-shattering year for women in so many different ways. I’m just excited to be living in a time where I can look to the future with my daughter and his daughters and know they’re going to have a little bit of a better time than we had.”
“Today Show” host Megyn Kelly was also on the Time 100 list. AJ asked her about her former FOX News colleague Sean Hannity, as it was revealed that he was also a client of Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen. Megyn remarked, “Hannity is entitled to have whatever lawyer he wants. As far as I’m concerned, as someone who practiced law for ten years, he can have whatever lawyer he wants. It’s none of my business.”
