Celebrity Salaries Revealed
It's no secret that most celebs can't complain when it comes to their yearly earnings. How much do they actually make? Take a peek inside the paychecks of some of your favorite stars. [Sources Include: Forbes, TV Guide and Vanity Fair]
The Two and a Half Men star may have had a few bumps in the road this year, but his bank account is still intact. The actor earned $30 million in 2010. How's that for winning?
Although Bullock has had a tough personal year, the Oscar-winning actress has most definitely come out on top financially, pulling in $56 million from her box office hits.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Twilight's dreamy Robert Pattinson earned $27.5 million, while his co-star and rumored off-screen love Kristen Stewart raked in an impressive $28.5 million. That should make for one memorable date night!
Talk isn't cheap, after all! Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey earned $315 million.
The "Born This Way" singer entertained the world last year, earning a $62 million nest egg.
Dr. Phil McGraw
Just what the doctor ordered! Dr. Phil McGraw took home $80 million from his day job.
The talk-show host makes audiences laugh daily, but she's laughing all the way to the bank with $19 million in her pocket.
Ryan Seacrest and Donald Trump
A few years ago, would you ever have guessed that Ryan Seacrest would out-earn The Donald? It's close, but Seacrest brought home $51 million, while Donald Trump earned "just" $50 million.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
Wonder if there's any salary competition in Beyonce and Jay Z's house? Beyonce out-earned her hubby last year, with $87 million, while Jay brought home a cool $63 million.
I wonder where these celebrity's salaries figures come from? For instance, I would like to know how much Charlie Sheen makes AFTER paying his entourage (who are highly paid individuals) - I bet they don't take home as much as you think.
Much like Baseball players who make millions by being successful less than 30% of the time, the Meteorologist gets paid $90,000 for being successful less than 50% of the time...
They should get paid by commission, based on how many times they correctly predict the weather.... Of course they will still get kickbacks from grocery stores, Milk, and toilet paper companies for predicting snow...
