WASHINGTON — Superstar U.S. talk show host Oprah Winfrey regained the title of the world’s most powerful celebrity in her fourth appearance in the top spot, said a survey published by Forbes magazine.
With 315 million dollars in earnings, Winfrey, 56, who next year is set to launch her own television channel, ousted Angelina Jolie as the top power player with the actress slipping from last year’s number one to the 18th spot.
In second place to the enduring talkshow diva, popular singer Beyonce Knowles jumped two positions with earnings of 87 million dollars, following a profitable year for her growing entertainment and fashion empire.
Director James Cameron, fresh from the success of his record-breaking movie “Avatar,” came in third with earnings of 210 million dollars.
