Who brought in the big bucks in the last year in showbiz? Vanity Fair has released their rankings of the Top 40 biggest earners in Hollywood, and Avatar's main man, James Cameron, takes the #1 spot, with $257 million earned in 2010. VF says this list is "limited to creative figures—stars, directors, producers—and to the money they earn from film," mind you, so what's actually in the bank is a whole other issue. Also on the list: Katherine Heigl (#33), Vin Diesel (#29), Owen Wilson (#26), Tyler Perry (#17), Taylor Lautner (#9), and Johnny Depp (#2). Yay, rich people!
