Move over: Madea is the highest paid woman — err man — in Hollywood. Tyler Perry has topped Forbes.com’s highest paid men in entertainment list. Perry is only one of two actors on the list, and considering that he’s best known for being a writer, director and producer, it makes sense that he’s the top for all his efforts.
Steven Spielberg and Simon Cowell all come behind Perry, who makes an estimated $130 million a year. Jerry Bruckheimer comes next at a not so shabby $113 million.
Many people online are joking that this technically makes Perry the second richest woman in America.
Were you surprised to hear Perry topped the list?
