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.

Up next: Salt, in which Jolie plays a CIA officer accused of being a spy.”

Here’s who rounded out the top 10:

Course she is # 1 it took them so long to realize it..i have never seen an episode of oprah cant stand the fat head ******!
yea angelina cant wait for salt.

Congrats to Angelina Jolie. She is a devoted Mom, Partner, humanitarian and great Actress. Angelina Jolie puts family first and still has managed to have a successful career and done great with with her UN and humanitarian projects. . She marches to the beat of her own drum and is a strong independent woman. A good person with beauty, inside and out. Happy early birthday to Mama Angie.

Brad will now realize (if he hasn’t already) that he made the biggest mistake of his life when he left Jennifer for Angie. But that boat has sailed. Sigh.

Hens are a trip. I so enjoy their la la land delusions.

I don’t want to fuel any feud, but why the heck is Jennifer Aniston doing on that list. She doesn’t do anything except use her personal life to sell movies and her films usually suck.

Well put! I agree.

Thanks Jared! CONGRATS. ANGIE!!!!

OMG–the trolls are already losing their sh!t :lol: :lol: :lol:

PT–when you get a chance check email please.

Is she happy is the question I agree with because she looks like she has no friends.

trollettes will be trollettes.
Like if Brad is an innocent dove there.
Melanie Griffith had a wild childhood and youth
Drew Barrymore? find about her.
Any rockstar? What about their kids? will they google them?
Tatum o’neal?
natalie cole?
there is one thing these women have in common, too, they have had trouble and overcaame (most of them, I hope Tatum is still strong)
there are loads more. stories of fallen stars and their recovery.
. angelina was young when she made mistakes and turned her life for the better because she found out what was truly important in life, not just living the HW life. She has more important things to do,read and think. -
- last thing they re worried about is some loon in internet posting C’ra’p for their kids to see it. That is left for braindeads trolls on a “mission”.

To ‘power over what’ Clearly she has power over you.

Iam just talking out of my ***** again, so happy and jealouse of angie

Sorry, my comment was that I agree with “bdj’s” comment about Angelina being many things, including what appears to be a devoted mother, partner, actress, and humanitarian.

Get over it loonies. Jen is on the list whether you like it or not. I rather her be replaced with someone like Drew Barrymore.

Angelina Jolie tops Forbes celebrity ‘power list’

27 minutes ago

NEW YORK (AFP) — Superstar actress and humanitarian advocate Angelina Jolie has unseated talkshow diva Oprah Winfrey as the world’s most powerful celebrity in a new survey published by Forbes magazine Wednesday.

The top ranking is based on income over the past 12 months as well as web references, press clippings, broadcast mentions and major magazine covers devoted to the celebrity, Forbes said.

Oscar winner Jolie, 33, one half of the Hollywood golden couple dubbed “Brangelina” with Brad Pitt, earned 27 million dollars between June 2008 and June 2009.

Her earnings and “famous face,” Forbes said, were enough to dethrone media maven Winfrey, who earned 275 million dollars.

Jolie, who came in third last year, is known for balancing her movie career and work as a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency with her ever-growing six-child family with Pitt.

Congrats to her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah Angelina! Love her.

Damn, Becky. You sure got it bad for me and Guli. You’re more concerned with our whereabouts than anything else in the world. That’s just all kinds of creepy…guess I better put my cop neighbor on high alert….

#1 Angelina Jolie-Yea baby!

power over what? @ 06/03/2009 at 7:12 pm
I keep telling you, no matter how you try to twist the facts, make up lies and drag up old news or tabloid news, no one cares except for X hags and possibly X herself.

So apparently she wields a great deal of power over you!

I guess that happens when you have a life without meaning.
You hop on celebrity threads of people SO much more fulfilled and successful than yourself so you can try tear them down. You must feel so powerless in your own pathetic existence to sink that low!

rotflmao!!! @ 06/03/2009 at 7:38 pm

o so much jealousy. Angelina has all that negative press and she’s still number 1. that’s what gets the haters. they try so hard to bring her down but she just keep rising.
