's list of most influential people is still a day away, but today we have a sneak peek at who made the roster.
American Sniper star Bradley Cooper made the cut and he felt honored to be included.
"It's a real big thing to be included in anything that has to do with Time magazine let alone the 100 list!" Cooper gushed during a photo shoot.
Cooper's good friend, actor Oliver Platt, sang his praises in the magazine, writing that Cooper's priorities in life are "his dog Charlotte, the Philadelphia Eagles and showing up for people he cares about."
"It's a huge privilege for me and if it does anything at all it helps spread awareness for veterans' issues," Cooper said.
Director Lee Daniels (Precious, The Butler) also made the list -- showing a complete status shift from the way he was treated as a kid.
"I learned to not go to the bathroom from the time that I was in kindergarten thru 6th grade because I was too afraid to go into the bathroom," Daniels said. "That's how bullied I was."
Today, Daniels has powerful people like Oprah Winfrey on his side.
"It seems like there is nothing Lee can't do," Oprah writes in Time.
Julianne Moore, Emma Watson and Chris Pratt join Cooper and Daniels as members of Time's select club. Russian President Vladimir Putin is the winner of this year's Time 100 reader's poll, but the No. 1 spot holder for the official list is still under wraps.
Chosen by the editors of Time, this year's list will be unveiled April 16.
