Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, Olsen Twins: Not Powerful

by at . Comments

One look at Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen makes it apparent these skeletons are far from powerful.

Nevertheless, they had been included on 2006's Forbes list of the 100 most powerful celebrities. This year, though? Not so much. We always said the pair should eat more.

Everybody Together: Awww!

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie also fell off the 2007 list, thanks to waning interest in their reality series The Simple Life. And their lack of talent, perhaps.

Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey, who consistently cracks the top 10 with earnings of $260 million a year, came in first place this year.

While compiling the list, Forbes considers income, while also taking into account factors such as media interest and the number of friends on stars' MySpace pages (in which case, Tila Tequila should rank first; she has over one million).

Lindsay Lohan was on the list for two years, but dropped off in 2006. Britney Spears, who was ranked No. 1 in 2002, bowed out the following year and hasn't been back since.

Big-time actors cleaned up this year, with Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp, who earned $92 million last year, coming in at No. 6. and The Da Vinci Code's Tom Hanks jumping from No. 31 to No. 11.

Brad Pitt finally made it into the top 10 for the first time with a No. 5 ranking.

In other news: child stars are fast on the heels of their adult contemporaries. Harry Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe (No. 79) and Emma Watson (No. 97) join the list for the first time, along with Dakota Fanning (No. 94).

"We're seeing young kids bringing in adult salaries," Goldman says.

Along those lines, look for Suri Cruise to make the list in 2008.
