Forbes power list: Women on top

Posted on

Image Credit: Rob Verhorst/Redferns/Getty ImagesMemo to Angelina Jolie: Charity work doesn’t make you powerful. That seems to be the message from today’s announcement of Forbes magazine’s annual celebrity power list, where women may have claimed three of the top five slots, but Jolie, last year’s top-ranked star, fell to No. 18. (Though Jolie has been keeping relatively busy filming projects like Salt and The Tourist, she hasn’t actually had a film in theaters since 2008.) Rather, this year’s top five were (in order) Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, James Cameron, Lady Gaga, and Tiger Woods, a lineup determined by income and media presence. Elsewhere on the list, Robert Pattinson (No. 50) outranked James Patterson (No. 53), Alec Baldwin (No. 88) edged out Tina Fey (No. 90), and — since I know you all were wondering — Justin Bieber was nowhere to be found.
