Beyonce and Jay-Z Top List of Hollywood's Highest-Earning Couples
Brangelina who? According to a new list of Hollywood's highest-earning couples, the answer isn't a pair of silver-screen superstars but instead a twosome of music moguls who each maintain a mini-empire of other interests — Beyoncé and Jay-Z!
In the latest list from the good folks at Forbes.com, Beyoncé and her hip-hop hubby topped this year's list, pulling in a combined $122 million through everything from music to movies to apparel to fragrances to pro basketball.
The couple's earnings were almost double that of the runners-up on the list, Harrison Ford and Calista Flockheart, whose combined $69 million intake put them $14 million above third-place finishers Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Surprisingly, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' $33.5 million was only enough to put them in the #9 slot, far below their buddies Will and Jada Pinkett Smith (#4, with $48 million) and Victoria and David Beckham (#5, with $46 million).
However, Tom and Katie can brag about besting his ex-wife Nicole Kidman and her country-singing husband Keith Urban, whose relatively meager $17 million put them at the tail end of the list of 15 couples.
