Vanity Fair has released it’s list of top movie moneymakers for 2010. The list is limited to creative figures, so stars, directors and producers and the money each earn from films throughout the year. (The list does not include television.)

The figures are really a best-guess and come from web sites such as Box Office Mojo and Box Office Guru. Revenues for DVD sales were supplied by Screen Digest for the first 3 quarters of 2010, while 4th quarter DVD sales were estimated.

Which actress had the highest earnings? For all of the Twilight fans out there, you will be glad to know it’s Kristen Stewart. Hmmmmm, anyone else notice there are only 2 women in the top 20?
