    This is absolutely rediculious. Jennifer Aniston makes more money than Nicole Kidman and the rest of the talented people on this list.
    She should be thankful for the divorce money from Brad urgly Maniston.

    Sasha Says:

    I wonder how much Angelina is worth. She gives all her money to charity what a wonderful soul.

    Anyone know how much Brad and Angelina are worth?

    Sasha Says:

    These women should be giving much of their income to charity. Most of them are without children what a waste of beauty, cash and nature.

    Sasha Says:

    14 out of 20 are without children. Ladies who are you keeping your money for? You are not going to take it with you six feet under.

    Sasha Says:

    Make that 13 out of 20.
    I hear Maniston wants to adopt a child.
    Poor kid, she should just stick to television actiing.

    How lucky of them! So why do the most of them look so miserable in their lives?

    moahaha Says:

    What exactly does net worth mean? Simply everything they ever earned added up minus taxes? I mean how would anyone know how much they have spend of what they earned?
    I sure believe Oprah is the richest but some of the other names on the list seem suspicious. How did Jennifer Aniston get this much money? More than Sandra Bullock who’s been in the industry much longer, more successful and even produced some of her huge boxoffice hits? And Judge Judy made 95 mill????

    It just goes to show that all that pity that some people get is wasted. These people are not the girls next door. One in particular is a multi millionaire who knows how to spin PR and play on the public sympathy. Other than a few women on the list, to bad this list does not also include their charitable contributions.

    Sasha Says:

    ***
    Every Charitable person is not and will never be rich that is why they have a beautiful soul because as you know when you become rich that is all you are concern about the green paper but helping people is a whole lot better and fulfilling than being rich.
    So Angelina is getting blessed for every life and situation she help change and I can’t tell you how wonderful that is and blessed.

    Aren’t the Olsen twins 20 year old?

    Sasha Says:

    moahaha,
    Jennifer Aniston got her money from Brad Pitt. She does seek sympathy from the public who are a little dump by her I miss Brad so much but did not shed one single tear. Every woman knows that crying helps us cope and release some tension. If Maniston hasn’t cried or shed one tear men she is in some place out of this world and if I was Brad I’ll be very careful with the Man.

    This is Crazy Says:

    All of you are absolutely ridiculous. I am not an Aniston fan nor do I like Jolie but you are all crazy. Angelina must not be here because she donates. WRONG!!! Net Worth is money that I have in the bank right now after my donations, after my taxes, it is my assets.

    I’m sure Angelina is a great person but because you hear about her charity in the paper doesn’t mean jack. Oprah donates almost 100 million a year. Jennifer Aniston donates (go out and actually do some research – she keeps it private.) As do the Olsens and many of the people on that list. For some people who they donate to is their private business, neither person is wrong or right.

    Jen has money from friends, the last 2 years she made almost 50 million from friends and for every re-run she gets almost 150,000 so I think she has money. She also has more than CC because she does movies and Cox’s money is now bracketed with her husband, they took the same last name. Her divorce with Brad did not get her money because she was actually worth more money (all because of Friends).

    In conclusion, you know absolutely nothing about these people and it’s quite sad that many of you feel like you do. Angelina doesn’t care for you and neither does Brad all they need you to do is go to their movies but after you put your money in their pocket. You are worthless to them

    All that money on this list! What the hell are they doing with it? How many houses can one person honestly live in at a time??
    I wish that everyone could follow in the philanthropic footsteps of people like the Gates’, Warren Buffett, the Jolie-Pitt’s and Oprah. So many people out there with NOTHING! Could you imagine what a pin drop fraction of the money on this list could mean to less fortunate people who are struggling to even eat every day.
    I sometimes wonder, as they are sitting in their $15 mill homes, if they have any idea what it is to look at a child who goes to school every morning and you have to wonder when the last time was that they ate. Or to know that 3/4 of the children in 3rd world countries have NO IDEA what shoes are.

    =========

    Even Oprah donates more money PRIVATELY than she ever does PUBLICLY.
    Some people just don’t need a press conference every time they write a check.
    Rock on Sistahs!
