  JK flies up powerful celeb list
Updated 18 June 2004, 06.42
JK Rowling is the sixth most powerful celeb
She might not be as powerful as the Minister for Magic just yet, but Potter author JK Rowling is gaining power in the world of celebrities.

She's been named the sixth most powerful celeb in the world by top US magazine Forbes.

That's 15 places higher than in 2003, and 16 places ahead of England's football captain David Beckham.

Movie legend Mel Gibson topped the list, taking over at the top from Jennifer Aniston who has dropped to 17.

The magazine also checked out how much the world's celebs earned in 2003, and found Gibson earned an amazing $210m (120m).

Even though they didn't earn as much as Gibson, 2003 was still a big year for teens Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

The magazine makes them top kid earners with $28m (16m) - now that's a lot of pocket money!
