Forbes released their list of the Most Influential celebrities of 2014 (so soon!), and Steven Spielberg came out on top. The Schindler’s List director not only beat out the competition, he has the numbers to back it up: “In the latest edition of our annual Forbes/E-Score list, which is based on polling conducted by E-Poll Market Research, Spielberg scores a 47 for influence, which means that 47% of the U.S. population believes he is influential.”

What’s that now?

“A celebrity’s ‘Influential’ score represents how that person is perceived as influencing the public, their peers, or both,” says Gerry Philpott, president of E-Poll Market Research. “If anyone doubts that Steven Spielberg has greatly influenced the public, think about how many will think for a second before going into the water this summer.”

BRB, calculating my Influential score, then probably tweeting some stuff or something.
