Who is the Most Powerful Star of Them All?
Forbes has just released their Celebrity 100 Power List - and it's no surprise who's number one.
Oprah Winfrey took the prime spot, moving up two places from last year. The media tycoon was the top money-maker with an estimated income of $260 million from June 2006 to June 2007.
"The woman is making history every single year," said Forbes Associate Editor Lea Goldman. "It's not as if she's sitting on her laurels enjoying the show."
Golf star Tiger Woods, who pulled in $100 million, more in a single year than any athlete in history, followed Oprah in second place.
Brad Pitt ranked fifth, beating Angelina, who didn't even make the top 10. But maybe that's because Angelina reportedly gives away more than a third of her income to charity.
As this year's highest paid actor, Johnny Depp came in at number six, raking in $92 million thanks to his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.
And those who didn't make the list?
Former celebrity powerhouses Jim Carrey, Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.
