The celebrity couple who made the most money between May 2010 and May 2011, according to Forbes's estimates, is ... Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen! Thereby sending the message psychology has long confirmed: A good way to make money is to look good while you do it. While Tom and Gisele are, obviously, better looking and more physically fit than just about anybody else sleeping together, they are also thought to have made more between the two of them than Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, and the Beckhams in the past year. Those couples rank second, third, and fourth, respectively, on Forbes's list of highest-earning celebrity couples. The earnings:
1. Gisele and Tom — $76 million
2. Beyoncé and Jay-Z — $72 million
3. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt — $50 million
4. Victoria and David Beckham — $45 million
Gisele, perhaps because she is hotter, earned Tom under the table, pulling in $45 million thanks to her various business and endorsement deals, while he only made $31 million with his football. Meanwhile Beyoncé out-earned Tom also, thanks to her endorsement deals with L'Oreal and her House of Deréon clothing line, pulling in $35 million. Victoria Beckham is estimated to have made $5 million from her clothing line, while her husband David made $40 million thanks to endorsement deals, mostly with sports brands. So what we can all learn from this is what matters most of all, when it comes to making money — and, well, living life — is looking like Gisele. A goal that everyone can aspire to and only one can achieve.
