For its issue picking the 100 most influential people in the world, Time sprinkled in a few celebrities and asked other stars to write the text praising them. Some of the pairings are expected (we just knew that Tom Ford's would be written by Rita Wilson), some are adorable (like Dianna Agron's testimonial for Chis Colfer), but none are quite as effusive as the paragraph for Blake Lively, written by director Baz Luhrmann (whose only professional connection to the Gossip Girl star, as far as we're aware, is that he auditioned her for The Great Gatsby). "Every now and then, an actor or actress manages to somehow channel the vitality of youth — that indefinable, natural, unprocessed glamour full of possibility and filled with anticipation for an endless future," wrote Luhrmann. "I've known Blake the actress, and I've known Blake the person, who would surprise many with her down-to-earth coolness. She makes you feel that she, and life, are going to go on forever." Noted! And boy, does Blake Lively get the best, most outlandish compliments, or what? [Time]
