Aniston beats rival Jolie in earnings battle

Jennifer Aniston has trumped her ex-husband Brad Pitt's new partner Angelina Jolie - by earning a reported $13m (€9.8m) more than her in 2008.

Aniston is said to have earned a staggering $27m (€20.3m) on the strength of films such as 'Marley & Me' - while the 'Tomb Raider' star took in $14m (€10.5m).

However, neither actress could top R&B singer Beyonce, whose film career and latest album 'I Am … Sasha Fierce' pocketed her a cool $80m (€60.25m) last year.

Her husband, rapper Jay-Z, did even better - adding another $82m (€61.75m) to his growing fortune.

Meanwhile, actor/director Tyler Perry brought home a whopping $125m (€94.13m) and funnyman Will Ferrell's bank account inflated by $31m (€23.3m).

The superstars' salaries were researched and reported by US magazine Parade.
