Jennifer Aniston made $27 million last year, according to Parade magazine, from projects such as the films He’s Just Not that Into You, Marley and Me and a guest role on comedy television series 30 Rock. She took in the same amount the year before, out-earning Angelina Jolie (who made $14 million) by a landslide. Musical power duo Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles also racked up a huge sum of cash in 2008, with Jay-Z at $82 million and his wife Knowles at $80 million. Tied at at whopping $125 million were Tiger Woods, Tyler Perry (known for his “Madea” movies), and governor Sarah Palin. Baseball star Alex Rodriguez banked $34 million, while funnyman Will Ferrell made $31 million. Talk show host Kelly Ripa made $8 million, 30 Rock star Tina Fey made 4.6 million, and Patrick Dempsey took home a $3.5 million paycheck for Grey’s Anatomy. But who was the top-grossing star last year, leaving all the other contenders in the dust? Barbie. Having just celebrated her 50th birthday, she shot past the “real” people with 3.3 billion dollars. ~Meryl H.
