Washington, June 12 (ANI): Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has topped Forbes list of the World’s 100 Most Powerful Celebrity for the second year running.

The 54-year-old retained her position as the most powerful celebrity thanks to her long-running talk show, which pulls in 30 million viewers a week, and yearly earnings of a whopping 275 million dollars, reports E! Online.

She has beaten golfer Tiger Woods, who came in second place with earnings of 115 million dollars.

Third on the list was Hollywood heavyweight Angelina Jolie.

While the pregnant actress made a relatively piddly 14 million dollars, she earned the right to don the mantle of celebrity powerhouse by forcefully speaking out on behalf of refugees - and by being one hot mommy.

Newlywed Beyonce Knowles landed the fourth spot in the list.

Rounding off the top fave was soccer ace David Beckham, who raked in 50 million dollars in the past year.

The World’s Top Ten Most Powerful Celebrity are:

1 Oprah Winfrey

2 Tiger Woods (golfer)

3 Angelina Jolie (actress)

4 Beyonce Knowles (singer)

5 David Beckham

6 Johnny Depp (actor)

7 Jay-Z (rapper)

8 The Police (rock group)

9 JK Rowling

10 Brad Pitt (actor) (ANI)
