My god why is everyone so obsessed with Jennifer Aniston to the point that she was able to earn that much money! I don't get her continual appeal

I think there should have been a "shocked" option. 80 million is outrageous.

I find the amount all of these celebs make is disgusting.. $80 million for JZ and B???, and when they "complain" it's even sicker.......oh don't take my pic, oh please do take my picture... Doctors, teachers, firefighters.....hum need I say more (I'm Canadian so I included Doctors!)

Tulipe - "As for Rod Blagojevich, does his salary include bribes or not ?" lol! Sadly he would fit right in with some Argentine politicians.

I wonder how much of that money is earnings from posing as a girlfriend/boyfriend? :D I bet John got a belly full of smart water.

Gah, Tyler Perry and Rush Limbaugh are not worth 1% of what they make and Tina Fey is worth sooooo much more.

Don't be mad at them...that money is YOUR money you gave them by spending it the crap they peddle.

Jennifer Aniston did not just act in two movies last year. Last I heard, she has a production company that makes movies (btw, AND money) and she was a spokesperson for Smartwater. I'm surprised at AJ's earnings - which were reported on another site as $14 Million. Either they didn't they factor in photo sales or girlfriend needs a new lawyer to negotiate her contracts.

No I am not surprised. At all. Qteepie, Tyler Perry is amazing and his past films sell like crazy. The man is amazing. Jen didn't just do Marley and Me last year...she is also the spokesperson for SmartWater and I am sure they pay her well. So I can see how she is on the list... I think this list just states what people made but not really like who earned more than who type of thing...it just picked random people.

Well, it kind of bothers me that a hero such as Chesley Sullenberger makes "only" 100 000$ a year when stupid arrogant propagandist Rush Limbaugh makes 38M$. As for Rod Blagojevich, does his salary include bribes or not ? :-)

Where do these figures come from? Jenifer Aniston only made two movies last year, and they were not big numbers. Most of these celebrity income figures are made up by tabloid journalists on their lunch break.

Maniston is NOT worth that much - she plays Rachel Green in every movie!
