Forbes Magazine has just released the results of a survey rating Hollywood’s most bankable stars and Will Smith topped the list, scoring a perfect 10.

John Burman, special projects director for Forbes Media, said Smith can star in any movie genre. "He can move from doing the pop film to an Ali to a Seven Pounds to The Pursuit of Happyness, so he’s able to play in all worlds and I think people just like watching him on screen," Burman said.

Other A-listers who scored big are Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and supercouple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who were all tied with a score of 9.89.

For its first-ever Star Currency list, which measured the financial clout of Hollywood stars to get movie projects going, Forbes surveyed more than 150 entertainment industry professionals including producers and directors
