Oprah Winfrey topped the Forbes list this year for the fourth year in a row with an estimated income of $165 million. Although her talk show has been retired, Winfrey’s Harpo productions, her television network; “OWN”, her magazine “O”, and her satellite radio station have all contributed to her top placement on the list.

Michael Bay comes in at a close second with an estimated income of $160 million. A major contribution came from his film “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, which didn’t receive the best of ratings from critics yet still brought in over $1 billion in ticket sales.

Steven Spielberg landed the third place spot at an estimated $130 million. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer comes in at fourth with $115 million and Dr. Dre came in fifth place with $110 million primarily from his Beats by Dre headphones.  

To finish out the top 10 in highest paid celebrities we have Tyler Perry with $105 Million, Radio Personality Howard Stern with $95 million, Author James Patterson with $94 million, George Lucas with $90 million, and X Factor Judge Simon Cowell at $90 million.
