Her movies which includes the “Kung Fu Panda,” “Wanted” and the soon-to-be-released spy thriller “Salt”, her humanitarian works and the publicity she got from the birth of her twins and her husband actor Brad Pitt (who ranks No.9) gives her the edge.

She grabbed the No.1 spot from talk show queen Oprah Winfrey who hold the top spot for the last 2 years. Winfrey is still the highest earner with $275M.

Completing the top 10 are Madonna ($110 million), Beyoncé Knowles ($87 million) Tiger Woods ($110 million), Bruce Springsteen ($70), Steven Spielberg ($ 150), Jennifer Aniston ($25), Brad Pitt ($28) and Kobe Bryant ($45).

U.S.A. President Barack Obama, the first head of state to land on the Celebrity 100 list, is at No.49. He ranked 1st in web, press and TV exposure.

Our very own Manny Paquiao, the only Filipino and boxer in the list makes it at No. 57 with $40M earnings, because of his blockbuster fights, endorsements and political plans.

According to Forbes, Celebrity 100's ranking of the rich and famous is based on income and media visibility (exposure in print, television, radio and online) for the past 12 months.

I heard about Angelina and Manny landing on the list but wow,I never thought Bruce Springsteen still earns big time! I admire Angelina for her humanitarian efforts.Not all rich and famous care about charity and child adoption.
