Despite not winning a golf tournament and being involved in a messy divorce, Tiger Woods still managed to rake in a hefty $105 million in 2010. Good enough to land him at # 5 on Forbes’ List of Hollywood’s 20 Highest Earning for the year.
Media mogul Oprah Winfrey ($315 million), along with film makers James Cameron ($210 million), Tyler Perry ($125 million) and Michael Bay ($120 million), round out the rest of the top 5.
Beyonce is the highest earning singer on the list. Jay-Z’s better half brought in a whopping $87 million landing her at # 9. Not far behind is Britney Spears, who pocketed $64 million, completing a remarkable comeback following her meltdown of several years ago.
Lady Gaga ($62 million) and Taylor Swift ($45 million) also raked in big money in 2010.

In tonight’s Barbara Walters special, Oprah Winfrey is setting the record straight: She’s “not even kind of a lesbian.”
The media mogul, whose new OWN Network is scheduled to launch Jan. 1, became emotional when explaining that rumors persist, mostly because of her close friendship with Gayle King.
“She is … the mother I never had. She is … the sister everybody would want,” Winfrey says. “She is the friend that everybody deserves.”
The one-hour interview special with Winfrey is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. on WXYZ-TV (Channel 7). It will be followed by Walters’ “Most Fascinating People of 2010″ special at 10 p.m.
She’s already performed for the Queen of England, and now Lady Gaga will visit with the Queen of Daytime, Oprah Winfrey.
The pop star, who is currently on tour, is scheduled to perform and sit down for an interview with the talk-show host for the first time on Friday’s live episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”
Later this month, Gaga will shoot a video for “Telephone,” her new single from The Fame Monster featuring Beyoncé. She is also set to take the stage at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, where she is up for five trophies.
