When two huge stars join forces in marriage, the result is a force to be reckoned with. This year Jay-Z and wife Beyonce topped Forbes.com’s list of Hollywood’s Top-Earning Couple, with $162 million between them in a one-year period.


Not only are they rich, but the talented twosome have influence across the board, in movies, music, fashion and high-profile endorsement deals.


"Naturally, powerful people tend to gravitate toward other powerful people," clinical psychologist and celebrity researcher Jim Houran tells Forbes.com.


Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith were #2 on the list, pulling in $85 million in a year, mostly from Will’s movies like I Am Legend, The Pursuit of Happyness and Hancock.


Other big names in the top five were: David and Victoria Beckham ($58 million), Tim McGraw and Faith Hill ($35 million) and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ($34 million).


Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were also on the list.
