Email  Print Print  

Alright, so they’re all famous celebrities, but still… $186M for thirteen people on the wrong side of the dirt is not bad, they don’t even get paid to breathe. Forbes compiled the list and notes that trends have a huge effect on who makes it on the list and who doesn’t (Ray Charles made the list, pushed on by renewed interest after Jamie Foxx won an Oscar portraying the singer in Ray). Can you guess who tops the list? (Yeah, you’re right)

1. Elvis Presley $45M
2. Charles Schulz $35M
3. John Lennon $22M
4. Andy Warhol $16M
5. Theodor “Dr. Seuss” Geisel $10M
6. Marlon Brando $9M
7. Marilyn Monroe $8M
8. J.R.R. Tolkien $8M
9. George Harrison $7M
10. Johnny Cash $7M
11. Irving Berlin $7M
12. Bob Marley $6M
13. Ray Charles $6M
