The President's salary is $400,000. Which actually seems pretty reasonable, given the free housing he gets.
6. Bill Murray
I'm not exactly sure what he'll earn this year, but his only movie coming out is "Passion Play," and he's not one of the main stars, so it's hard to see him getting that much for it. Maybe he's still doing Suntory Whisky commercials?
7. Anna Paquin
$900K for the third season of True Blood. Some of which probably went towards her wedding.
8. Anderson Cooper
$2 million for his gig on CNN.
9. Edie Falco
$2.1 million for Nurse Jackie, which ain't half bad.
10. Bill Keller (Executive Editor of the New York Times)
$650,000, plus, I'm guessing, stock options (which are losing their worth as you read this).
11. The Dalai Lama
Granted, he probably earns less than you, since he doesn't really have money.
