GQ's Least Influential People of 2012

While who's hot and who's not in Hollywood is ever-changing, who are the stars that get GQ's dubious honor of being "The Least Influential of 2012?"
According to the men's magazine, Amanda Bynes, Madonna, Ryan Lochte, Billy Crystal and surprisingly, Adam Sandler, are a few of the unlucky celebs who had a less than stellar year.
"Bynes spent all of 2012 avoiding acting gigs and trying desperately to run over your dog. And yet she isn't anywhere close to being as fascinating a train wreck as Lohan," Drew Magary writes about Bynes' much-publicized meltdown this year, which included getting charged with a DUI, a hit-and-run and driving with a suspended license. "I could watch Lohan implode for years and years, yet Bynes merits only a token shrug."
The mag also calls out Madonna's increasingly desperate attempts to stay young.
"That cheerleading outfit isn't making you look any younger, Madge. It's time for you to stop putting out aggressively bland comeback albums and make room for Ke$ha and Katy and the other 800 female artists out there who change outfits every five minutes to distract people from their terrible singing."
As for Adam Sandler's usually successful (and guy-friendly) films, the mag cites his box office flop That's My Boy as the beginning of the end for the popularity of his critically-panned comedies.
"Every year, Adam Sandler releases fresh cinematic evidence that he has no respect for you, your $12, or your cognitive abilities. And thanks to the disappointing gross for That's My Boy, Americans have finally caught on."
