Angelina Jolie: World's Most Powerful Celebrity

Angelina Jolie has unseated talkshow diva Oprah Winfrey to become the World’s Most Powerful Celebrity, according to Forbes.

Here’s what the mag had to say about the 33-year-old’s power based on money and fame: “Eclectic actress and gossip-column favorite dethrones media maven Oprah Winfrey atop this year’s Celebrity 100. Jolie has always been able to attract tabloid attention and Oscar nods, but this year, she’s finally figured out a way to make serious money. Her most recent blockbuster, Wanted, proved this mother of six’s sweet spot is action films; the movie earned $340 million at the box office. Up next: Salt, in which Jolie plays a CIA officer accused of being a spy.”

Here’s who rounded out the top 10:
#2 — Oprah Winfrey
#3 — Madonna
#4 — Beyonce Knowles
#5 — Tiger Woods
#6 — Bruce Springsteen
#7 — Steven Spielberg

    Jolie Hot Chin not Says:

    She is certainly most powerful in my book and most beautiful! We love you Angie. Glad you’re on top. She has a lot of clout – can open a movie, can get interest groups talking and get people listening to just causes. What an impressive woman. Angie makes me proud to be a woman.

    That’s why Jenho can’t get her @ss off the Jolie-Pitt train. She will continue to coattail Angie. Haters need to give it up. Angelina is unstoppable. Brad was very smart to to hook-up with Angelina.

    the d list jen has more power than the oh mighty a-list braddy……….lol

    power over what? Says:

    All the negative press Angie gets on a daily basis helped to put her on that list. I wouldnt brag about that. Just shows that any press is good for an actor. That said, that doesnt erase all of the baggage this woman has. She isnt powerful enought to have all her filthy naked pics removed from the internet. She isnt powerful enought to have all the negative articles about her removed. She isnt powerful enough to remove any evididence of her past from the internet. She can make anyone forget all the PDA’s with BBT, or the naked pics of her and Jenny Shimizu. She isnt powerful enough make the naked pics of her and the horse disappear. She cannot have the Rolling Stone interview, where she admitted being institutionalized because she feared BBT would not ditch Dern for her. She cannot hide any of this from her kids, who are already learning how to use google…SEEMS SHE DOESNT HAVE THE POWER TO KEEP BRAD FROM HOOKING UP WITH JEN, OR THE POWER TO HALT THE 2 NEGATIVE BOOKS THAT ARE GOING OUT….Guess what folks, that title is pretty worthless. I just shows that a lot of people like to read negative stories about this demented creature.

    great that the 3
    first are women! and Angie is a working mom and an advocate and publicist for good causes. More power to them!!
    She is truly devoted to several good things and besides that, manages to have a career.
    Good that she tries to balance things and has a great partner :)

    Maybe now she can buy a sandwich. The gal needs some meat on her bones.

    Katrina Says:

    Oh, Jill, she obviously is happy.

    For me, the biggest puzzle is why Jennifer Aniston is on that list. She’s so over…Although I do love her SmartWater.

    Isn’t this hilarious? She made waaaay more than Brad while Jen is only a step up from Brad. I guess Jenn and Brad found a way to be together on a list HAHAH!

    Molly Says:

    By the way, no wonder Brad is taking on so many roles! he wants to keep up with the one that wears the pants in the family.
