Beyonce and Jay Z

R&B star Beyonce Knowles and her rapper husband Jay-Z have emerged as the highest earning couple in Hollywood beating star couples like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.



The

Crazy In Love

hitmaker and her hip-hop mogul husband have topped a poll of Hollywood's highest-earning couples compiled by

Forbes

magazine, with combined earnings of USD 122 million between June 2008 and June 2009. Their total income was almost double that of runners-up Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, whose USD 69 million would have mostly come courtesy of the actor's USD 65 million pay cheque for

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

.



Pitt and Jolie graced the third place in the list with a total earning of USD 55 million.

Hitch

star Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith came at number four with USD 48 million, and the former Spice Girl Victoria and her soccer ace husband David Beckham took the fifth place with USD 46 million.



Despite splurging on their three-year-old daughter Suri's clothes and toys, actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' total earnings were a meagre USD 33.5 million which put them in the ninth slot.
