Forbes’ List: Highest Earners of 2010
Forbes has released their list of Hollywood’s 20 Highest Earners of 2010:
#1. Oprah Winfrey $315 million
#2. James Cameron $210 million
#3. Tyler Perry $125 million
Others who made the list include Tiger Woods at #5 with a total of $105 million.
Beyonce made $87 million this year even though she’s technically on a hiatus. Getting money while you take a break must be amazing. She came in at #9.
Britney Spears is still a money maker. She even made more than Lady Gaga this year. They are #13 and #14 respectively making $64 million and $62 million this year.
Judge Judy closed the list at #20 making $45 million this past year.
Out of the 20 people who made it on the list, the split between men and women was half and half so I can’t brag that women are earning more than men. Looks like we are all doing our thing, generally speaking.
One thing I’d like to know is how Forbes gets these figures. Of course they are estimates, but how can we ever truly know what one person earns and the amount enclosed in every deal they make.
It’s not possible. These celebs could very have made more, and others in Hollywood could have secretly surpassed these high earners. I’d prefer to be on that undisclosed list. The world does not really need to know how much you make.
