Jay-Z and Beyonce have been named Hollywood's top-earning couple.

The music superstars raked in a hefty 122 million dollars between them in the 12 months leading up to June 2009, according to Forbes.com.

Forbes said: "The couple not only produce and sing some of the biggest hits on the charts (including Single Ladies and Empire State Of Mind) but they oversee clothing lines, perform around the world and endorse products from companies like American Express and Budweiser."

Jay-Z and Beyonce beat a host of other power couples to the top spot, including actors Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart, who came second with a healthy 69 million dollars, and Hollywood heavyweights Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who were third with 55 million.

Other star couples who made big bucks included actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who pocketed 48 million dollars, and British A-listers David and Victoria Beckham - the footy ace and the former Spice Girl rounded out the top five with 46 million.
