People Magazine is back with its annual celebrities list. For 2022, Hollywood stars like Matthew McConaughey and Mila Kunis have been included in the “People of the Year” list. Other entries include Jennifer Hudson as well as the star of Abbot Elementary Quinta Brunson.
The list was revealed on Wednesday by Editor-in-Chief Wendy Naugle. Naugle says the people in the list were selected due to their efforts to help others.
Why is Mila Kunis in the list?
