Grey's Anatomy Cast in "Celebrity 100"

by at . Comments

The Forbes "Celebrity 100" list has been unveiled and Grey's Anatomy is hot - and we're not just talking about Patrick Dempsey's good looks for once.

Every year, Forbes scours the universe of the famous, unearthing the 411 on the top earners and the media darlings, because its Celebrity 100 measures not only how much celebrities get paid, but what kind of media and public attention is being paid to them.

"The whole reason we came up with the list is, it is too simple to say, 'Who earned the most money?' Then you just have a bunch of jocks at the top," explains Dennis Keanle, Managing Editor of Forbes.

"But what if you want to compare an athlete to a chef, or a fashion model against an actress? You ought to look at how they do on Google hits, in magazines, and how they do on covers. That's what the Forbes list does. It gives a relative ranking of power and hotness, based in part on earnings."

In addition to Grey's Anatomy (a new entry to the list at No. 12 with cast earnings of at least $33 million combined), Desperate Housewives came in at No. 47 with its four female stars earning a total of $16 million.

The Grey's Anatomy cast could rise even higher this coming year (even with the loss of Isaiah Washington) with many major cast members getting big raises and bonuses, and some even receiving portions of the series' profits.

I hope Ellen and Patrick do another NY & Co ad too. I was thinking about that same thing because they did the fall ad and the holiday ad last year. As a couple...they are as HOT this year as they were last year and the cast made the Forbes 100 list...how much hotter can they get...right? They would also make a great couple for the Brides magazine with her modeling the dresses and him the tux. Wouldn't that be a great ad for us Mer/Der fans? Actually, these two would be great together no matter what kinda ad they were chosen to be in! Hopefully, someone will ask these two to advertise something for their product together soon! We'll be waiting!

Thumbs up to Patrick and Ellen they look great as alway's. I never get sick of seeing them. I do agree the pictures of them are getting rare. I am still hoping they do another NY&Co. ad but I hav'nt heard anything about that.

I'm going to comment on everyone. Patrick & Ellen look cute : ] The chief is pretty much lookin' fly in that suit & hat. hahaha. Eric Dane & Justin Chambers are looking as hot as ever. Sandra Oh has an interesting choice of clothing, once again. But hey, she can pull it off. Katherine Heigl, Kate Walsh, Chandra Wilson, and Sara Ramirez look like they're having fun!!! : ] And of course, last but not least, Isaiah Washington. Looking great...as always! I'm going to miss him : [ Hm, I wonder where T.R Knight was. He probably wasn't man enough to face Isaiah Washington in person. I mean, it's his fault IW is no longer on the show!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.

Ellis

Vulnerability isn't the opposite of strength. It's a necessary part. You have to force yourselves to open up, to expose ourselves, to offer everything we have and just pray that it's good enough. Otherwise, we'll never succeed.
