Posted: August 28th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Bay is Second Highest-Paid Celebrity with $160 MillionSubmit Comment
Forbes magazine has unveiled their list of the highest-paid celebrities, looking at earnings from May 2011 till May 2012. Topping the list is Oprah Winfrey, bringing in a whopping $165 million in just twelve months. The magazine points out that Oprah's earning will drop significantly next year since all her syndication money will no longer be included.

Taking second place is Michael Bay with $160 million, thanks to "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." Steven Spielberg took third with $130 million and producer Jerry Bruckheimer came in fourth with $115 million. And rounding out fifth is Dr. Dre with $110 million, thanks to his Beast by Dr. Dre headphones and his music enterprise.

Check out the Top 20 list below:

1. Oprah Winfrey - $165 million
2. Michael Bay - $160 million
3. Steven Spielberg - $130 million
4. Jerry Bruckheimer - $115 million
5. Dr. Dre - $110 million
6. Tyler Perry - $105 million
7. Howard Stern - $95 million

Dr. Dre's headphone company is actually called "Beats". There is no such thing as "Beast" by Dr. Dre last time I checked.

d*ck Wolf is and epic name deserving ALL the money.

Glenn Beck on the other hand - how the f*ck, 'merica? No one knows him outside the States and still... Oh, f*ck, there's also Limbaugh.

@bando

Overrated with Awesome action dat in. Seriously, Pearl Harbor sucks as a movie, but I still own the collectors box cause it has such f*cking awesome action scenes. Guilty pleasure.

@Rambo

Truth.

And, ah... Tyler Perry?
Ranger writes:
on August 28th, 2012 at 4:49:58 PM

Just like Troy... I didn't mind Pearl Harbor (the movie, not the real bombing of it... that was just cowardly!). It is what it is. A romance story in the middle of a tragedy (see Titanic, or Legends of the Fall)... or... (sniffle)... The Notebook... (sniffle)...

God Bless James Garner!

Brad Pitt and his flowing hair in Legends of the Fall!!!

I'm surprised Oprah's earnings aren't siginificantly less- the OWN network is a giant, open sore of a financial mess that is hemmorhaging money and headed for an iceberg... She must be insulated from that.

Lists like these are clear evidence that much of Hollywood is not a meritocracy. But what most of these people are, are mass-market BRANDS that are consumed by the entertainment-consuming public. Even if you have talent to spare, which a few of these people do (Pacquiao, Tiger, hell, even Spielberg still has cinema chops), it's not enough to make the big money. Make your name a f*cking trademark and then you're on this list. Oh, and considering Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck are on this list, pandering to the public is apparently profitable too...
