Forbes names Madonna Hollywood’s hardest working mom

With earnings of $110 million in 2008, Madonna topped Forbes’ list of Hollywood’s hardest working mothers, followed by actresses Reese Witherspoon and Gwyneth Paltrow.

The pop singer and mother of three, who was recently turned down in her bid to adopt a second child from Malawi, grossed $105 million on her tour and sold nearly a million albums in the United States. Madonna also signed several lucrative endorsement deals last year, according to Forbes.com.

“She had an incredible year in 2008,” said Lauren Streib who helped to compile the list that was released on Friday.

“She had the top tour of any musician…The tour sold out around the world. So it wasn’t surprising as much as it is a commentary on how successful her year was,” she said.

Witherspoon, who earned an estimated $24 million last year, was second on the list, followed closely behind by Paltrow with $20 million in earnings.

In addition to her film career and raising daughter Ava and son Deacon, Witherspoon, who is divorced from actor Ryan Phillippe, is also the international spokeswoman for the cosmetics company Avon.

Paltrow’s role in the blockbuster comic book film “Iron Man,” which earned $580 million worldwide, and her endorsements for Estee Lauder and shoe and handbag maker Tod’s propelled her to the third spot.

Streib said the list is based on estimated earnings of Hollywood mothers with at least one child. Earnings include album sales, salaries, box-office grosses and endorsements and licensing deals.

She added that for many of the women on the list endorsement deals are a significant part of their earnings.

“I think this is something that has been going on for decades now. We are seeing less and less models and more and more celebrity spokespeople. It is a big part of the business of being a celebrity,” she added.

Mother of three Julia Roberts, who returned to the big screen in a starring role in the film “Duplicity,” captured the fourth spot on the list, while actress Sarah Jessica Parker, who has a son with husband Matthew Broderick, rounded out the top five.

Angelina Jolie, who has six children but still earned $14 million last year, came in sixth, followed by model and television presenter Heidi Klum, who is pregnant with her fourth child.

Best actress Academy Award winner Kate Winslet, who has two children, and singer and mother of three Faith Hill also made the list, which is posted at www.forbes.com.

      LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL best comment this week!

  • Mike (and not Mike or the other Mike)

    You GO, Maddy! Fuck off, haters! :-)

  • Scott

    By Madonna’s own admission, she’s not the most talented singer, dancer, writer, etc. But, whether you like her or not, she is the sum of her mediocre talents, along with a brilliant mind and amazing energy. That’s why she’s such a major superstar. I’m sure she’s is one of the hardest-working show biz moms around. But I still think she’s a cow of a person.

  • Paul

    Yay Madonna! I love you! I’m only 20 but I think you are incredible…can’t wait to see what your tour costumes look like for this coming summer!!!

  • FARTO

    • Michael

      It’s hard to tell who the real FARTO is because as we’ve all discovered, neither identity can spell.

  • Kablahblah

    MILF! Go Madge! Queen of the fucking universe!!! This is Madonna’s world, we just live in it.

  • lilli

    I wonder if M would loan me some money?

    • Tyler

    • uterus

  • Pau

    Well…she´s always on the top lists…whatever you want… She´s THE QUEEN…all the time…THE BEST.
    Amazing.

  • OMG SHE IS THE QUEEN OF THE UNIVERSE AND BIRDIES AND LITTLE FLOWERS

    Baby Jesus is at home so proud of his suggamamma!

  • Francisco Mariano

    MADONNA’S USELESS ALBUM “HARD CANDY ” IS AVAILABLE TO BUY IN THE SHOPS AT ONLY £3. THIS ILLUSTRATES HOW FAR HER CAREER HAS DECLINED. ALTHOUGH IT’S ONLY £3 NOBODY STILL WANTS TO BUY THIS USELESS PILE OF SHIT.SHE’S BECOME SUCH AN EMBARRASSMENT PARADING AROUND ON STAGE IN HER KNICKERS WHILE MIMING TO A BACKING TRACK AT HER ADVANCED AGE. SHE NEEDS TO LOOK AT HOW THE DAZZLINGLY BEAUTIFUL MICHELLE PFEIFFER CONDUCTS HERSELF AND TRY TO MODEL HERSELF ON MICHELLE INSTEAD OF AN OLD SCRUBBER.

    • remidelino

      insignificant people will always hate and TRY to belittle the accomplishments of others.

    • Richard

      Man, you’re such an idiot!!! You definitely need to get a life!!!! Use your time wisely!! Your life must be so pathetic, so boring, so frustrating that you waste your time writting bull about people that you don’t even know!! You must really have low self esteem! Is your life so miserable that you have the need to trash other people?

    • Maverick

      Francisco Mariano U are a sad Looooseeerrr!. U hate Madonna so much but U cant stop talking and writting about hear every single day Hmmm…Get a Life…Why would someone visit the web site of someone U dislike so much??? Do better things with Ur time!!!

    • Fox

      Madonnas albums are never marked down, every fan knows that. You were probably looking at a used copy or a store going out of business. In fact shes one of the only ones who can still move CD singles in the stores.

  • leslave

    Mama Mia!!!

  • Paul Andrews

    Gwyneth, Reese, Julia, Angelina and Kate,all accomplished actresses. All Oscar-winning actresses.They are all completely believable in whichever role they undertake. Then there is Madonna, star of such classics as “Shanghai Surprise”, Swept Away” and “Body of Evidence.” Hopeless and inept and winner numerous Golden Rasberries,including a well deserved one as ” worst actress of the 20th century.

    • Sean

      How sad r u?! Nothing better to do with your time but to visit fan sites of someone you hate, hu?
      And don’t bother posting your email here. No one wants to write you, you sad idiot.

      • Paul Andrews

        Sean,you must be an even sadder case to respond to a post of which you claim “no one wants to write to you”, well arsehole,you did respond.You are a typical Madonna fan: humourless, unintelligent and tragic.Try and make some friends. I’m sure there are people equally desperate and charmless as yourself who would jump at the chance to be your friend. On second thoughts I don’t think there are.You failure.

      • Mike (and not Mike or the other Mike)

        Fuck you, Paul.

    • jay

      paul
      hollywood is not just about movies……it is enterteinment…
      heidi klum, gwen stefany are also in the list….so get a grip…

      • Paul Andrews

        Jay, I thought everyone knew that a Golden Globe award isn’t won in the conventional sense. The studios buy them from the foreign press in Hollywood and are as irrelevant as an MTV award,ie WORTHLESS.

      • jay

        forgot to say she’s a Golden Globe winner….
        BEST ACTRESS 1997
        she won barbra,glenn close,francis mcdorman,debby reinalds.

    • FARTO

      Paul Paul Paul spending every second of your low life posting mean comments every where eh?
      have some humor senses before you post your lame comments … look at all my comments … all of them are true yet funny …

      • FARTO

        not me…..thats the granny imitator again!…they dont have the BALLS to insult people with their own ID…….dont be fooled.

      • FARTO

        Hi, I’m FARTO,
        I have no life, so I spend all of my time trolling Madonna fan sites. The truth is, I’m a Mariah Carey fan and that’s just what we do.
        In my spare time, I fuck my Mother, while sucking my Dad’s cock. Sometimes I let my dog get into the action too. We are one, big, happy family. There really are no other imitators on this site claiming to be me, but I’m such an egomanic, all I can do is pretend to be myself in all of these different posts and act like others are imitating me. I mean, why wouldn’t everyone else want to be me?
        I’ve got such a great life.
        I really do love Madonna, it’s just that I can’t afford to go to her concerts because I can’t get a job.
        I have no skills and completely worthless, so I’m angry at her for charging more money than I could ever afford. Thank God Mariah doesn’t charge as much, so I can go watch her stand there on the stage and do NOTHING. Such a wonderful entertainer,
        don’t you think? Well, I better go now, I’m going to try and find another Madonna fan site to TROLL.

      • FARTO

        BIG TRASH TALKING VULGAR IMIATATOR….not funny, entertaining or even slightly interesting…..I must have def hit a nerve with this wackjob/stalker……dont be fooled people…..and there not getting rid of me so its just a big waste of time with your time spent……

      • FARTO

        Stalker??? LOL. Now that’s fucking funny. Who the fuck would stalk YOU?
        We are just trying to show you how fucking STUPID you are. But then, you probably already know that. You can stay here all you want, and we won’t stop harrassing you either, fucktard!

      • FARTO

        so let me get this str8, now you are posing as me, yelling at yourself, whos mad at me?..you need help dude.

      • FARTO

        Riiiiight. Look who’s talking, asswipe. You fucking Live on this site. Get over your retarded self.

      • FARTO

      • FARTO

        WHO got under who’s skin this time, Hmmmmmm? If you can’t take it Farto, don’t dish it out. I think YOU are the one looking foolish. The more you write, the more stupid you look.

    • Richard

      Poor Paul Andrew, still holding on to the past!! Let it go man!! Take a deep breath a get over it!!! Do something better with your free time, because time is priceless, yet it cost us nothing. You can do anything you want with it, but own it. You can spend it, but you can’t keep it. And once you’ve lost it, there’s no getting it back, it’s just gone!

    • Tyler

      You guys,we all know that Madonna sucks at acting,hence why she gave it up.but it doesnt make her any less entertaining.

      i like to watch her movies tho! cuz she’s got a great bod(which she doesnt cover up!) and she’s Madonna

    • FARTO

      she should do an old school type musical.

    • Maverick

      Ok Mariano, take this: Madonna has sold more than 200 millions cds in 25 years, more top ten singles than anybody else, her last 4 tours have made more than 650 millions at the Box Office, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 8 grammys, 20 MTV Awards and has broken so many records in the music industry…Nothing that you say or do can change that, so please dont waste ur time and GET A LIFE!!! LOL…

    • jay

      worthless and yet all this fabulous stars u quote go the ceremony and cheer to win…they r worst than maddonna then…..
