Oprah Winfrey has been named Hollywood's highest-paid female star.
The TV star earned an estimated $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012 thanks to her now-defunct Oprah Winfrey Show, OWN TV network, satellite radio station, production company Harpo and O magazine, figures compiled by Forbes magazine for their Richest Women in Entertainment list show.
Oprah's fortune is a staggering $107 million more than the second-placed star on the list, newest X Factor judge Britney Spears, who generated $58 million in the time period, $1 million more than Taylor Swift, who was named in third place.
Rihanna and Ellen DeGeneres tied for fourth place, with each bringing in $53 million, with Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez tying just below them with earnings of $52 million.
Robert Pattinson has been named the sexiest man in the world.
The Twilight actor has topped Glamour's 50 Sexiest Men of 2012 poll beating a host of famous hunks to take the British magazine's title for the fourth year in a row. The 26-year-old star beat Thor star Tom Hiddleston and Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp into second and third place respectively.
The top five was rounded off by Michael Fassbender and Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
Other hunks to make the top 10 included Robert Downey Jr., Robert's Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner and Henry Cavill - who will be seen next year playing Superman in Man of Steel.
Over 40,000 people voted in this year's poll and notable entries in the top 20 include Alexander Skarsgard (14), Batman actor Christian Bale (18) and his Dark Knight Rises co-star Tom Hardy (20).
Bar Refaeli never gets hit on by men.
The Israeli-born model - who came top of Maxim's Hot 100 list earlier this week - claims members of the opposite do not flirt with her despite her striking looks.
"Let's put it out there, no one hits on me. I don't get hit on by guys. No one flirts with me," she told TV host Conan O'Brien.
However, Bar - who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio - does have a list of musts she requires in a man. "Of course there's the obvious things. I want him to be sweet and kind and have values and morals. The first thing I notice is his teeth. I have a fetish. I like a great smile and really white, bright teeth," she added.
Upon being bestowed the title as the hottest woman in the world by Maxim, Bar, 26, told the men's magazine she was delighted to beat the likes of Mila Kunis and Katy Perry to the honor.
Jennifer Lopez has been named the world's most powerful celebrity.
The 42-year-old star has knocked Lady Gaga off the top spot of Forbes magazine's annual Celebrity 100 list - at which she was placed number 50 last year - thanks to her high public profile and endeavors in music, movies, as a judge on American Idol and other endorsement deals, with her income over the last 12 months reaching a staggering $52 million.
The Celebrity 100 - which placed TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey second and Justin Bieber third - is based on income over a 12 month period and fame, as defined by a media presence across all platforms, as well as social media power as determined by prolificness on Facebook and Twitter.
Jennifer's fame was boosted by her 23,000 press mentions, including appearing on 46 major magazine covers, topping People's 2011 Most Beautiful list and being named as a Glamour Woman of the Year.
P. Diddy has been crowned the wealthiest artist in hip-hop for the second year in a row.
The "Hello Good Morning" rapper - who has an estimated fortune of $550 million - once again beat Jay-Z ($460 million) to claim the top spot in a list compiled by Forbes magazine.
The music mogul's wealth is fueled by his Sean John clothing brand, Bad Boy Worldwide record label, vodka brand Ciroc - a joint venture with drinks brand Diageo, Enyce clothing and Blue Flame marketing. Jay-Z also has a range of lucrative financial interests, including a deal with Live Nation, his Watch the Throne tour with Kanye West, his 40/40 club chain and a stake in the New Jersey Nets basketball team.
Dr. Dre retained the third place spot he took last year while fourth and fifth places on the list were filled by Bryan "Birdman" Williams and 50 Cent respectively.
