    This is the cover of Time Magazine's issue on their 100 most influential people in the world. Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio and envelope-pushers Rosie O'Donnell and Sacha Baron Cohen are among the entertainment newsmakers who made it onto the magazine's list of 100 people who shape the world which hits newsstands Friday, May 4, 2007

    Obama (news, bio, voting record), YouTube founders Steve Chen and Chad Hurley, director Martin Scorsese and model Kate Moss. It does not include President Bush.

    In a piece she wrote for the magazine, Barbara Walters, the creator of "The View," had kind words to say about O'Donnell, who announced last week she was leaving the ABC talk show in June because she and the network couldn't agree on a new contract.

    "And so, last September, we began a thrilling roller-coaster ride," Walters wrote. "We followed Rosie's passion and compassion, her feuds and fearlessness, her humanity and humor."
    Walters said she and O'Donnell "remain respectful and affectionate friends."
    Roseanne Barr weighed in on Baron Cohen, also known as Borat. "He does offend some people's sensibilities, but the youth of today are offended if they're not offended," she wrote.

    Scorsese, who often casts DiCaprio in his films, praised the 32-year-old screen idol/activist as a "true actor."
    "DiCaprio is another guy a lot of us underestimated as a pretty-boy type," Adi Ignatius, a deputy managing editor at Time, told AP Television News.
    The list includes 71 men and 29 women from 27 countries.
