Are You Surprised By the Top Ten Most Valuable Celebrity Faces of 2008?

Forbes just released their annual list of the celebrity faces that sell the most magazine covers, and it's definitely a shake up from last year. Angelina took the top spot, followed by Jennifer Aniston, Heath Ledger, Jamie Lynn Spears, Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson, Suri Cruise, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Heidi Montag, and Owen Wilson. Sounds like shocking headlines played a major role in this year's list, so tell us — are you surprised by the top ten most valuable celebrity faces of 2008?

I think Brad and Angelina are balancing privacy and the public’s demands. They accept that losing a major portion of their privacy is part of being a major star. They've never complained about their privacy. (People can always google it and post the legitimate, mainstream, reliable, verifiable sources here to prove that Brad and Angelina have complained.) The only time I’ve heard them say anything is regarding their kids – that paps use long lens and not traumatize the kids so much. The Jolie-Pitts generate the most money for tabloid magazines and newspapers, traffic for blogs (including this one), and ratings for entertainment shows. Occasionally they throw a bone - especially when promoting their movies as they are contractually obligated to do - to the monster with the huge maw to keep it from devouring them completely. Other stars do the same thing. Oh, yeah, they do object to being spied on while at home by powerful camera lenses from trees, rooftops, helicopters, etc. They especially object to paparazzi literally invading their home, temporary or not. I think that's totally reasonable. I don't remember any contracts that they and other entertainers signed saying they agreed to a total lack of privacy once they became rich and famous. They haven’t invited us into their homes, as other celebrities have done; they’re not in a reality show.

i have to say that a couple of those really do surprise me, but for the most part, they do make sense. regardless of anything, i think that angie will take top spots and any cruise will do it as for jess simpson, that one is baffling to me as is the whole shiloh thing too.

What the article also said was that the stars were divided up into high likeability and low likeability. Angelina and Jennifer Aniston were in the high likeability range, while Jessica Simpson and Heidi Montag were in the Low likeability range. Jessica Simpson and Heidi Montag may sell covers, but people don't like Jessica or Heidi. The Conclusion of the article also stated that putting more Angelina and Jennifer would yield higher sales because of their high likeability range.

I look at Jen in Pictures the woman is amazing she looks half her age and her body is half her age. Jennifer Aniston is absolutely beautiful in every way talented and definitely should be on the top of the list & Angelina Jolie also but Jen still to me beats her with her looks and body!!!! Angie is a great actress but i don't watch violent movies I watch comedy Jen is the best at!!!I don't know why babies are on there or Hiedi I don't even know her, wheres Britney Spears a definite, i don't get it!!!

I agree with the first 3 picked...Angie, Jen and of course Heath but the rest not so much and WTF are the kids celebrities? They arn't, they didn't choose this, they are CHILDREN. wow.

I think the point that was made was to put pointless people on the cover signaling that these magazines are pointless. Jessica dominated many other supposedly reputable covers which makes me question whether the covers are up for sale...

I'm not surprised by these, I wouldn't necessarily buy magazines for all of these people but they do seem to be what on my stands this year, I was surprised to not see Britney Spears and Lauren Conrad on there though, but that's just me

im so glad jennifer aniston & heath ledger are on the list. little suri looks so adorable! im a little baffled by heidi montag, nicole richie & owen wilson. maybe heidi montag & spencer have this scheme where they buy magazines when their on the front covers in bulk. they probably frame them and put them in every room in their house. maybe thats how their magazines sell.

I am amazed that you think the money from the Jolie-Pitt pictures should go to third world countries. I feel sorry for them but in cause you haven't noticed America is in a pretty bad state. Organizations helping the poor in America are out of money, the older people could easily lose their retirement, businesses and banks are going under. When are you going to feel like that just maybe we should be helping some of the poor and homeless in this country? I feel bad for my neighbors who have lost their houses and jobs because of businesses that have closed and a $6 a hour job doesn't take care of a family of four. They didn't ask for it and have always worked hard.

Ew. Jamie Lynn? Nicole Richie? Heidi Montag? Jessica Simpson. Sorry, they have no careers. They're just starlets obssessed with being in the spotlight. And having Suri and Shiloh are just......weird
