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
#8 — Jennifer Aniston
#9 — Brad Pitt
#10 — Kobe Bryant

    That’s freat but she’s always on these lists. I doubt that she cares about all of this. she’s probably laughing at how silly it all is.

    The only thing interesting about this is that she beat Oprah and her empire. Now Oprah will never have Angelina on the show. (who cares?)

    I don’t buy those figures Forbes quotes. They are completely guessing.
    Kung Fu Panda made a fortune world wide and Angelina was a huge part of those profits. Same with Wanted. Both big money makers. You know Jolie is no fool, especially with smart money man Brad at her side, and that she gets gross points on her action and animated films. Same with Brad. Do they even take into account his very lucrative foreign commercials and his production company? When it comes to being in the know with the incomes of celebrities Forbes is clueless.
    And, of course, Angelina is Number One. Brad should be way up there as well – he is a huge and beloved star world wide. We haven’t even mentioned the influence and access he has recently wielded in the halls of Congress and in the White House. Madonna? Beyonce Knowles? Kobe Bryant? Please. Even Bruce doesn’t belong that high on such a list anymore
    The biggest joke of all is Jennifer Aniston? ROTFLMAO. What in the world is that about? Is Forbes another one of the magazines her publiicist has a brother working at? LOL!

    Good afternoon to all BAMPZSKV fans. It is hot, hot, hot here. But I am not complaning about it.

    Angie wins awarda and titles without even trying. That is the beauty of Angelina Jolie. She doesn’t try to win these awards and titles. She is simply recognized for who she is and she wins.

    I know the trolls want to bring out all of the old sh*t, she kissed her brother, she let a horse lick her chest, blah, blah, blah. The people who give her the awards and titles know about these things. And guess what? They don’t care.

    The UN doesn’t care. Nor do any of the other organizations, charities, projects that she support, manage, and champion, Why? Because they know as the fans know that she did these when she was young and unevolbed.

    They know that people grow and change. They know her heart is good, if not pure. They know that whatever she did she did to herself and wasn’t trying to hurt others.

    Angie is not a saint. And no one wants her to be one. Saints are made by G-D. Angie is a human person trying to be good, do good, and make the world a better place. Peace

    This is great news in only one sense. Those trolls who love to drag out polls and statistics from who knows where, and claim she’s over, she’s too old, blah blah…

    Dexter Says:

    I just saw this on TV.

    She’s number one because of her fans. She and Brad have rock solid fanbases. Although they make different slots depending on the year, They are both there because of box office and their fanbase.
