Forbes has released its list of the highest-earning Hollywood couples last year — and surprisingly, Brangelina isn’t on top!

Guess who’s bringing home the big bacon in the Beyonce-Jay-Z household? It’s Beyonce — according to Forbes, which just released their survey of the highest-earning couples in celebdom. She pulled in $87 million last year — a combination of record sales, touring, and endorsements — while Jay brought in a relatively paltry $35 mil. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart were a shock #2, though the vast majority of their haul came from Mr. Ford’s star turn in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie came in third — but as everyone knows, they give a lot of it away to good causes.

Here’s the list of the top ten — and for more on the story, check out Wonderwall’s gallery!

1. Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z ($122 million)

2. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart ($69 million)

3. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ($55 million)
