The famous names on GQ's list of the least influential people of 2014 may surprise you!

The mag has released their annual list of people they claim "took up vast clouds of oxygen, gave us back nothing of use, and probably helped accelerate the death of our planet."

President Barack Obama is one peculiar name of this year's list. As GQ puts it, "Putin is conquering Europe. The CDC is playing nude Twister with Ebola patients. U2 is forcing bad songs on everyone. The NSA won't stop watching me masturbate. I need you ON THIS. Are you even president anymore? When Obama got blasted for golfing shortly after ISIS beheaded journalist James Foley, he said,'‘I should've anticipated the optics.' How do you win the presidency without knowing that golfing makes you look rich and indifferent?"

Shia LaBeouf, who has made his own headlines this year for some bizarre behavior, also made the list. "I'm telling you, there's something off about this LaBeouf fella—like he isn't everything he claims to be," writes the mag. "By the way, enough with celebrities excusing their asinine behavior—like, say, wearing paper bags over their heads—by claiming they were conducting some kind of sociological experiment about HUMANITY."

In addition to LaBeouf, Hollywood stars like Zach Braff, U2's Bono, Woody Allen, Johnny Depp and Robin Thicke were also named.

Politicians like Sarah Palin, John McCain, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Eric Cantor and Missouri governor Jay Nixon were also deemed least influential.
