Forbes just came out with its annual list of the 100 "most powerful" celebrities, which also serves as a yearly reminder of how much life sucks for the rest of us. So, who made the cut?
Unsurprisingly, Oprah Winfrey tops the list—for the third time in four years—with $315 million in earnings over the past 12 months. The runner-up to Winfrey is triple threat Beyoncé Knowles, who earned $87 million last year and edged out director James Cameron, who made $210 million. (The Forbes list also factors in "fame" by tallying up TV/radio/blog mentions, Facebook fans, Twitter followers, etc.) Coming in fourth place—and making her debut on the list—is Lady Gaga, who collected $62 million over the past year, followed by scandal-ridden Tiger Woods, who made $105 million.
Rounding out the top 10 are Britney Spears ($64 million), U2 ($130 million), Sandra Bullock ($56 million), Johnny Depp ($75 million), and Madonna ($58 million). Yes, according to Forbes, Britney Spears is the sixth most powerful celebrity alive because her tour did pretty well and she has a "high-profile" endorsement deal with Candies.
The lowest earner on the list? Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt, who pulled in $6.5 million last year to land in the No. 99 slot. Of course, that's still about $6.5 million more than any of us earned during the last 12 months, so it's hard to feel too bad for J.Love. [Forbes, photo via Getty Images]
