The Top 100 Highest-Paid Celebrities of 2016 – Forbes

Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, LeBron James, Jackie Chan and Melissa McCarthy–what do they all have in common? They’re members of this year’s edition of the FORBES Celebrity 100, the definitive accounting of the top-earning entertainers on the planet.

This list originally appeared on Forbes, by Zack O’Malley Greenburg.

These stars pulled in a collective $5.1 billion pretax during our June-to-June scoring period. Regrettably, that’s more than the GDP of Belize, Gambia and Bhutan combined. Yet the list is surprisingly international in scope, ranging from Hollywood’s usual suspects like top-earning actor Dwayne Johnson (No. 19, $64.5 million) and cover star Kim Kardashian (No. 43, $51 million) to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen (No. 99, $30.5 million) and Korean pop sensation Bigbang (No. 54, $44 million).
