Every year, Forbes releases a list of the top 100 celebrities in the world who earned the most in the last year. This year, the top 100 celebrities earned a combined $6.3 billion pretax and they include actors and actresses, athletes, musicians, and other public figures.
Below is Forbes' methodology for figuring out the top earners:
"The Forbes Celebrity 100 ranks front-of-the-camera stars around the globe using their pretax earnings from June 1, 2017 through June 1, 2018, before deducting fees for managers, lawyers and agents. Forbes figures are based on numbers from Nielsen, Pollstar, IMDB, SoundScan, NPD BookScan and ComScore, as well as interviews with industry experts and many of the stars themselves. The result is the definitive index of who’s making what in the worldwide business of fame."
