About Forbes Richest Celebrities
Richest Celebrities 2012
Carlos Slim remains the world’s richest person for a second year with estimated assets of $69 billion, according to Forbes magazine’s annual global ranking of billionaires. He doesn’t have his own television show, fashion line or personal sneaker. He does have a stranglehold on Mexico’s telecommunications industry.
The are others not quite as rich as Slim, but they’re a whole lot more sexy and famous..Take a look at the list below:
Mark Zuckerberg – $17.5 Billion
Mark, 27, is the youngest,richest billionaire in the world. He’s the face behind Facebook, and the undisputed champ of social networking. Speaking of which, he was portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg in the “The Social Network,” a fictionalized film of Facebook’s creation.
Facebook was a key spark in the spread and organization of the recent revolts in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Libya. Back home President Obama praised Facebook as an example of American innovation in his January State of the Union Address. A month later Zuckerberg sat next to Obama at a dinner with other tech titans like Steve Jobs, Eric Schmidt, Larry Ellison and John Doerr.
Oprah Winfrey – $2.7 Billion
Oprah is arguably the most powerful person in entertainment. She turns authors into instant celebs, down home chefs into chain restauranteurs and doctors into blockbuster gurus. She’s turned us into believers, and you know we’ve all tune in to her new Oprah Winfrey Network “OWN”.
Mikhail Prokhorov – $13.2 Billion
If this galavanting Russian bachelor industrialist isn’t quite a celebrity yet, he will be shortly. The 6’7″ 45-year-old bought a controlling stake in the NBA’s New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets. He’s notoriously single — see his arrest on “pimping” charges in 2007, for which France recently apologized. Basically, he’s now the King of New York.
Donald Trump – $2.9 Billion
The Donald might be one of the most famous faces on this list. He’s certainly got the most famous head of hair. According to Forbes, Trump thinks his “brand alone is worth $5 billion.” It’s that kind of arro-cough confidence that has helped him accumulate one of the richest real estate holdings in the world.President Trump? The Donald says he is considering running for US President in 2012.
J.K. Rowling – $1 Billion
With the purchasing power of kids. And moms. And teens. OK, everybody loves ‘Harry Potter.’ The richest chick in Britain deserves every Galleon she’s put in the bank. Don’t expect to see Rowling on welfare again any time soon.
Steven Spielberg – $3 Billion
King of the big screen, even if Steven Seagal is the first celeb that pops up when typing “Steven S” into Google. Count his ticket stubs. Films directed by Spielberg haul in an average of $157 million at the box office. He’s so guffaw-ing at Kathryn Bigelow right now.
Michael Bloomberg – $22 Billion
We thought we read somewhere — maybe it was the Magna Carta… or the Constitution… or Microsoft Encarta — that democratic leaders aren’t supposed to be billionaires. Nobody told Mayor Bloomberg, who spent $90 million on his last campaign.
Ralph Lauren – $7.5 Billion
Humans need only four things: air, food, clothes and sex. Ralph sells two of those. Pop the collar on a pink Polo polo shirt in springtime and watch your sexual fitness skyrocket. Popped collar Gap polos do not induce the same effect.
Richard Branson – $4.2 Billion
Sir Richard Branson is aiming for the stars with his private space agency Virgin Galactic. The inaugural launch is slated to take place some time this year. We always thought the man in the moon looked more like John Lennon. This billionaire Brit will have to do.
