June 29, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Oprah Winfrey has claimed the title for the most influential celebrity again by knocking out Angelina Jolie. With a total earning of $315 million Oprah Winfrey and an upcoming TV Channel of her own. This is the fourth time that Oprah Winfrey has appeared at the top of the list formulated by Forbes Magazine.

Irish Rockers U2 have also ranked in the top 10 with a total earning of $130 million at No.7.
