Catherine Zeta-Jones has topped a list of the highest-paid product endorsing celebrities. The raven-haired beauty shot to the top of the list after communications giant T-Mobile paid her a staggering £11.2 million to promote their merchandise.
The campaign featuring the Welsh actress was only used in the US. Catherine - who is married to actor Michael Douglas - beat several top Hollywood stars, including Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Gwyneth Paltrow and 'Newlyweds' bombshell Jessica Simpson, to take the top spot. Penelope Cruz also made the list after earning £2.2 million to promote L' Oreal hair products. 'Ocean's Twelve' star Brad Pitt - who received £2.2million to advertise Heineken - was the only man included in the top ten.
