Angelina Jolie made more than any other celebrity, taking 4 out of the 10 spots, 3 out of 4 of those pictures were due to interest in her children. It’s wrong to make big bucks selling pictures of your biological and adopted children when you’re already very rich. Jolie only started making the big bucks once she started dating Brad Pitt, and already had two adopted children. Brad has been good for Jolie’s career.
The worst mother award goes to Anna Nicole Smith however, for selling pictures of her dead son showing him just hours before his death. A real mother would never betray her son like that.
Notably not listed is how much, if anything, was paid for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes pictures of baby Suri.
The best father award should go to Tiger Woods who revealed pictures of his daughter Sam Alexis to the world for FREE.
