Beyoncé and Jay-Z named Hollywood’s top-earning twosome

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have just been named Hollywood’s top-earning twosome by the compulsive listmakers over at Forbes. The married moguls banked a combined $122 million between June 2008 and June 2009, $87 million coming from her album sales and touring.

Nearly double the second-place tandem of Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, who tallied $69 million. Poor Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie only teamed for $55 million to edge out Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith ($48 million) and David and Victoria Beckham ($46 million).

Earning those big bucks has tuckered out Beyoncé, who tells USA Today she plans a long hiatus after wrapping her nearly yearlong tour next month.
