Men's magazine GQ has just released a list called The 25 Least Influential People Alive of 2011, and readers may be surprised to see expected names like doomsday prophet Harold Camping and controversial country singer Hank Williams Jr. are joined by such high-profile winners as Gwyneth Paltrow, January Jones and President Barack Obama.

While GQ may not like Gwyneth Paltrow much, it's hard to deny that her face has been everywhere this year. She published a cookbook, was a very well-received guest star on hit TV show Glee, and turned up at almost every TV, movie and music awards show of 2011.

January Jones, meanwhile, was only two years ago hailed by the men's magazine for her protrayal of Mad Men lead Betty Draper, whom GQ called the most complex, mysterious woman on television today.

Barack Obama, meanwhile, was named both Man of the Year in 2008 and Leader of the Year in 2009 by GQ, who has been one of the president's biggets fans.
