It's official: Angelina Jolie is the most powerful celebrity in the world.
So says Forbes magazine's annual Celebrity 100 list, released today. The star — who earned $27 million last year — knocked Oprah Winfrey out of the top spot, which the talk show host has held for the past two years.
Winfrey earned a whopping $275 million last year, but Jolie — who was No. 3 in 2008 — still got more press. Madonna came in No. 3 this year thanks to her Hard Candy tour and all the media coverage surrounding her split from Guy Ritchie and "affair of the heart" with Alex Rodriguez, which Us Weekly first reported.
Beyonce Knowles earned $87 million and ranked No. 4, while Tiger Woods came in at No. 5 with $110 million — making him the highest-paid athlete in the world (despite having to sit out for eight months with a knee injury last year). Jennifer Aniston came in at No. 8, earning $25 million — and beating ex Brad Pitt, who ranked No. 9 (but took home $28 million).
Barack Obama became the first active president to appear in the list, coming in at No. 49. Also in the rankings: Ryan Seacrest (No. 44 with $38 million), Miley Cyrus (No. 29) and Taylor Swift (No. 69.) To see the entire list, check out Forbes.com.
