TV supremo Simon Cowell couldn’t even beat her
She may have taken a hefty pay cut but iconic TV host Oprah Winfrey is still sitting pretty at the top of the highest paid celebrity list.
According to Forbes magazine, the star has earned $165 million and despite being $125 million down from last year, has been placed at the top of the coveted list for the fourth year running.
Following close behind Oprah with his earnings is Michael Bay, director of ‘Transformers’ with $160 million, whilst iconic movie director Steven Spielberg took third place with his earnings totaling $130 million.
Finishing off the top ten was rapper Dr Dre whose headphones have made him a very wealthy man coming in at fifth place, Tyler Perry (6th), America’s Got Talent’s Howard Stern (7th) and James Patterson in at eighth place.
‘Star Wars’ supremo George Lucas came in ninth place whilst Brit TV supremo Simon Cowell finished up in 10th place with $90 million.
