Amid rumors of a Brangelina split - which the couple's rep denies, Angelina Jolie has toppled Oprah Winfrey on Forbes "The Celebrity 100" list.

The Celebrity 100 List is Forbes annual ranking of the world's most powerful celebrities, including film and television actors, models, chefs, athletes, authors and musicians.  Results are determined by gross entertainment-related earnings and media visibility (exposure in print, television, radio and online).

Winfrey, who took the number two spot this year, is still the list's top earner, raking in a whopping $275 million in the last year.

Jolie's earnings came in at $27 million, with movies that included "Kung Fu Panda," "Wanted" and the upcoming spy thriller "Salt."

Rounding out the top five on the list are #3 Madonna ($110 million), #4 Beyoncé Knowles ($87 million) and #5 Tiger Woods ($110 million).

Brad Pitt comes in at number 9 on the list with earnings of $28 million.
