Three sports men, four musicians and a DJ walk into a bar. The barman celebrates.

At least, he would if the selected group of drinkers came from the following Forbes list.

The money-minded publication has updated its list of highest paid celebrities (don't worry, they're all "entertainers", not people famous for being famous), and the top ten makes for an interesting read.

Have a click through the gallery below to see how the earnings stack up.
