In pics: The world's most powerful celebs

Johnny Depp

What does Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp have in common with Brad Pitt and rapper JayZ? They're all in the top 10 of a list of the world's most powerful celebs.

Tiger Woods

The Forbes list is updated every year and looks at how much the celebs earn and how much other people are paying attention to them. Top golfer Tiger Woods has come second this year to American TV star Oprah Winfrey.


It's a good year for Madonna. She didn't make the top 100 in 2006 but she's stormed back in at number three this year.

Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe

It's not just the American stars who have made it. Harry Potter author JK Rowling is at 48, while two of the stars of the Potter films, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, are listed for the first time at 79 and 97.

Paris Hilton

But it's not good news for everyone. Heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton was at number 56 last year, but she's failed to make the top 100 for 2007.
