To anyone that saw her as Lara Croft, this should come as no surprise.

According to its annual Celebrity 100 List, Forbes has named Angelina Jolie the most powerful celebrity in the world.

The actress, who earned $27 million in 2008, knocked Oprah Winfrey out of the top spot, which the talk show host had held for two consecutive years.

Pitt came in at number-nine, while a couple of tweens can now Tweet to their fans about their powerful status: Miley Cyrus (number-29) and Taylor Swift (number-69).

Following Jolie, here's a look at the complete top 10:

  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Madonna
  • BeyoncĂ© Knowles
  • Tiger Woods
  • Bruce Springsteen
  • Steven Spielberg
  • Jennifer Aniston
  • Brad Pitt
  • Kobe Bryant
