TIME magazine unveiled its annual “100 Most Influential People in the World”  a wide-ranging group that includes global leaders, musicians, movie stars, and athletes.

Also included this year Pope Francis, actor Ryan Reynolds, Gymnast Simone Biles, President Trump and Ivanka Trump and her husband presidential advisor Jared Kushner.

If Amy Schumer asks to use your toilet, make sure you say yes. The actress was jogging around Chicago recently when she stopped into a Mattress Firm store hoping for an emergency bathroom. The store employee happily pointed her towards the restroom, not realizing the desperate jogger was Schumer. Grateful for the hospitality, Schumer walked up to the employee on her way out and asked which mattress was her favorite. She then bought the $2,000 mattress on the spot as a gesture of her appreciation.
