Meet The Most Powerful Hollywood Star At Every Age

Hollywood's Most Powerful At Every Age

She’s not even a year old and baby Blue Ivy Carter has more famous friends, prestige, and blinged out gifts than most other people will see in their entire lifetime.

The secret? Her super famous parents.

But plenty of powerful celebrities are influential in their own right. Betty White might be the most well-known 90-year-old on the planet.

Five-year-old Suri Cruise picks out her mum Katie Holmes‘ clothes while 17-year-old Justin Bieber has become a multi-million dollar empire. 25-year-old Robert Pattinson leads a flock of Twi-hards. And at age 36, Giuliana Rancic expertly handles the E! carpet while also publicly battling breast cancer and trying to conceive a child.

At age 48, Brad Pitt is up for an Oscar this year and proud pop to six children. 50-three-year-old Madonna changed the face of music. 70-six-year old Woody Allen is still making at least one film per year and at 85, Hugh Hefner is more than alive.

We’ve found who we think are the most powerful, famous figures in the world, covering everyone from little Blue to the comedic queen Betty White.

DId we miss anyone? Let us know in the comments.

AGE 16: KENDALL JENNER

Despite coming from the powerful and controversy-filled reality-TV family, the Kardashian/Jenner teenager has made a name for herself with a successful modelling career.

AGE 17: JUSTIN BIEBER
