As Taylor Swift is crowned highest-paid celebrity - more stars in the top 10, including Hollywood's biggest earner

Comedian Kevin Hart out-ranked the likes of Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise 

 

Forbes has unveiled a list of the highest paid celebrities - and the numbers are eye-watering.
While Taylor Swift expectedly topped this year's list with a massive £131 million, there are a few big surprises.

One Direction pulled in £85 million last year to make them the second highest-paid celebs on the annual list.

The boy band are currently on hiatus with Harry Styles pursuing acting ambitions in Christopher Nolan's new film Dunkirk, and bandmates Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Liam Payne rumoured to be working on new music.

Adele
British chart-topper Adele trumped other female singers including Madonna, Rihanna and Katy Perry to take the ninth spot with £62 million.

Comedian Kevin Hart has officially become the highest earning actor in Hollywood after taking home over £66 million over the past year.

His co-star Dwayne Johnson also placed in the Top 20 after he banked a respectable £49.5 million.
They both beat out the likes of Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise, who failed to achieve spots in the Top 30.
Jennifer Lawrence
 Jennifer's the highest paid actress in the business

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence took the title of highest-paid actress for a second year in a row, earning a whopping £35.1 million.
Madonna racked up £59 million, edging out Rihanna with £58 million and the Firework hitmaker with £32 million.

Taylor's ex Calvin Harris pulled in £49 million, according to the list.
Reality star Kim Kardashian, who is featured on the cover of the magazine, was 42nd on the list with earnings of £39 million.

Some 40% of her income came from her mobile game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Forbes said.
Kardashian shared a picture of her cover on Instagram with the caption: "Such a tremendous honour to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen and know my Dad would be so proud."

She added the hashtag: "#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent"
