Forbes magazine has just released its "100 Celebrities" list, with the names of the 100 most powerful - and best paid - celebrities of 2006. The magazine analyzed not only earnings (how much money they've made), but also how often they have been mentioned in the media and on the internet.

Latest artists to make the list include actor Ben Stiller and the cast of ABC's popular series Grey's Anatomy. Jim Carrey and Cameron Diaz, however, are off the list.
