Actor/do-gooders Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie wield quite a bit of international influence - and they've now been ranked at 21 on "Time" magazine's 100 Most Influential list for 2008!

Angelina has been the UN's Goodwill Ambassador since 2001, while Brad has been active in a number of charities and in the rebuilding of New Orleans. Buddy George Clooney says of the couple, "It is one thing to talk about the problems of the world and quite another to actually try to change things."

George cited Brad and Angie's donation of $1 million to victims in Darfur, a cause very close to Clooney's heart. It's been reported that in 2006 Jolie and Pitt donated an astounding $8 million to numerous charities, including the Namibia Red Cross Action Program (Shiloh was born in Namibia) and $100K to the Daniel Pearl Foundation (Jolie starred in the film about his widow, Marianne).

Jolie is expecting her fifth child. The couple has two sons, Maddox, 6, Pax, 4, and daughters, Zahara, 3, and Shiloh, 1. The brood is spending the summer in France, where Brad and Angie are expected to attend the Cannes Film Festival.
