Highest earning celebrities this year

August 18, 2006 at 9:39 am (Uncategorized)

Forbes magazine has compiled a list of earnings of celebrities, and there is the list of top 10 earners available online.

Some names were bound to make this list, like “Steven Spielberg” (War of the worlds, Minority report, E.T., Jurassic Park) , “George Lucas” (Star wars, Indiana Jones), “Oprah Winfrey” (Oprah TV show) and “JK Rowling” (Harry potter) and “Tiger Woods”.

But there are also some surprises like the second highest earner is “Howard Stern” and “Jerry Seinfield”, yup! the comedian from Seinfield TV series which ended in 1998. But still earned £122m a huge income which comes mainly from DVD sales of this TV seasons. Then there are the DaVinci code author “Dan Brown”. Although the Christian community hoped that he didn’t earn that much, but I think the book sold more because of the controversy which was created by them. The sales would never have been this much if they didn’t raise issues about the book.

So, who else are on the list and who exactly made how much? Find out @ BBC
