Time100 notable names & quotes
Dolly Parton (with an essay by Miley Cyrus): “Dolly is not only my idol because of her incomparable career—she’s also my role model because of her steadfast morals and values. At her core, she is the definition of a humanitarian….There’s a theory that you shouldn’t meet your heroes, but I wish everyone had the chance to meet Dolly Parton, because she’s even better than your sparkliest dreams.”
Scarlett Johansson (with an essay by Jamie Lee Curtis): “I recently watched her own the screen as the Black Widow, who exacts revenge on a powerful figure who manipulates (emphasis on man) women to fight for him. And then I saw her brilliant response to a real-life manipulation (same emphasis), when she filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the studio, alleging its decision to release the film simultaneously in theaters and on streaming cost her substantial losses in pay.Whether as an assassin with a conscience, an actor with an emotional center or, having just given birth to her second child, a fierce mother, the message is clear: Don’t f-ck with this mama bear.”
Britney Spears (with an essay by Paris Hilton): “When most people think of Britney Spears, they think of Britney the superstar. She’s iconic. A legend….When I think of Britney Spears, I see the sweetest soul. A mother. A friend. A fighter. A young woman who grew up in the tabloid culture of the 2000s, when the paparazzi machine was accepted, unforgiving and cruel….Despite the darkness that has surrounded her life, Britney embodies joy and shares the light of her beautiful heart, forever the superstar. So we stand by her and root for her as she turns pain into purpose, her unwavering spirit stronger than ever.”
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle (with an essay by José Andrés): “Springing into action is not the easy choice for a young duke and duchess who have been blessed through birth and talent, and burned by fame. It would be much safer to enjoy their good fortune and stay silent. That’s not what Harry and Meghan do, or who they are…. In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the duke and duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know. They don’t just opine. They run toward the struggle.”
Billie Eilish (with an essay by Megan Thee Stallion): “Billie Eilish is a unique soul, with a voice, style and attitude all unapologetically her own…. She is a rare spirit who speaks from her heart with no pretenses….One who is strong, but still learning and still growing. A woman who stands up for herself and advocates for women everywhere.”
The hosts of Red Table Talk, Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris (with an essay by Tiffany Haddish): “When I went on the show, it was the first time I met her, and I felt like we were born at different times but at the same vibration. Red Table Talk opens up a dialogue with grandmothers, mothers, daughters and granddaughters, where we can all share and relate to one another….For me, to watch those three Black women work together, each representing a different generation, there’s a lot of hope in that.”
