That’s right, as if it’s not enough that ONE of them makes a gazillion dollars, when you put two powerful people together, not only do they out-earn half the free world, they look enviably amazing doing it. We’re not jealous at all, really. Swear…
NO. 5: KSTEW AND RPATZ
Haters can hate, but when it comes down to the big bucks, Robert and Kristen DEFINTELY bring it in. Mostly this is due to the phenomenon called Twilight (perhaps you’ve heard of it). Both earned $20 million last year EACH from the franchise, bringing their grand total to $40 mil. Then there are those side projects of theirs, Rob seems to have more success with mainstream hits like Remember Me, which profited in the $40 million mark, while Kristen’s last flick The Runaways made $4.6 million. No matter, Snow White is coming next year, and we’re sure that’s gonna be a runaway hit!
NO. 4: DAVID AND VICTORIA
DVB is a powerful, POWERFUL brand, and it seems like they’re a pretty well off one too! The soccer star boasts a pretty huge paycheck – $40 million last year, and MOST of that is from endorsements! Then there’s also his on-going deal with the LA Galaxy, which makes him the highest-paid athlete in history. His wife accounts for $5 million of the annual income, and with VB purses going for $3,000 a pop, and her rising fashion power in the form of a clothing line, it’s actually kinda hard to bend it like Beckham.
NO. 3: BRAD AND ANGELINA
Brangelina have done it again. They are the cream of the Hollywood crop and of course, they are too beautiful for words, too talented for regular films, and now apparently rich enough to land in the 3rd spot on Forbes’ richest couple list. Off of one movie – The Tourist – Angie pocketed about $30 million, and it seems like Brad is A-OK with that since he pulled in $20 million, mostly from his production company Plan B. No wonder they can raise a baseball team of children.
JAY-Z AND BEYONCE
Music’s super-couple came in second place, and well – we can’t say that we’re surprised. Together, they rule the musical kingdom, and we really wouldn’t have it any other way. Last year, Hova made a cool $72 million – somewhere in there is that $150 million Live Nation deal, oh yes, and his shareholder position over the New Jersey Nets, and Queen B didn’t do too shabby herself, unless you consider $35 million to be shabby. In which case, please introduce yourselves to us.
NO 1: GISELE AND TOM
Fashion and sports reign supreme, and as if Gisele and Tom couldn’t be more rich, they also couldn’t be anymore BEAUTIFUL. The Supermodel of Supermodel’s raked in $45 million last year, and her football husband signed a four-year, $72 MILLION DOLLAR deal with the New England Patriots a while back, the HIGHEST the NFL is paying ANYONE, which rings their annual total to $76 million bucks. Dear lord, give the rest of the world a fighting chance will you two?!
