Angelina Jolie – The World's Most Powerful Celebrity

Back on my previous post last September 2008, Angelina Jolie – The world's Most Powerful CelebrityAngelina Jolie is one of the hottest and sexy celebrity that often appears on many "most beautiful women" lists in magazine and in tabloid press. Now, Jolie is not only the hottest, sexy and most beautiful woman in the world but she is also one of the “The World's Most Powerful Celebrity”.

Thanks to the release of several blockbuster movies and an endless sea of media buzz, Jolie has dethroned Oprah Winfrey to top this year's Celebrity 100 list, Forbes' annual ranking of the world's ultra famous.

Jolie raked in $27 million in the past 12 months thanks to a movie schedule that included "Kung Fu Panda," "Wanted" and the not-yet-released spy thriller "Salt." Even more impressive: The publicity she garnered following the birth of her twins, as well as the consistent headlines she grabs for her philanthropic efforts and her relationship with actor Brad Pitt, who ranks No. 9 on the list.

Oprah Winfrey is now on the second place on the list. Last year, Winfrey has pocketed $275 million, making her the list's top earner.

The Celebrity 100, which includes film and television actors, models, chefs, athletes, authors, and musicians, is a measure of entertainment-related earnings and media visibility (exposure in print, television, radio and online). The earnings estimates consist of pre-tax income between June 2008 and June 2009. Management, agent, and attorney fees are not deducted.

Rounding out the top five on the list are pop icon Madonna ($110 million), singer Beyonce Knowles ($87 million), and golfer Tiger Woods ($110 million).
