British funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen has become the richest British actor in Hollywood.
The comic-turned-actor has earned over $36 million in the last year, thanks to his box office successes with The Dictator, Hugo and Les Misérables.
Sacha also banked a big pay cheque for providing the voice of lemur King Julien in Madagascar 3.
Recently, he took the crown of highest-paid Brit in the movies from Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
But, despite earning more than such A-listers as Tom Hanks ($27 million) and Brad Pitt ($22 million), the actor wasn’t included on Forbes’ annual Celebrity 100 list because he wasn’t considered famous enough. Oo-er!
The rundown of powerful figures in Tinseltown was topped by Tom Cruise, who was paid a whopping $62 million last year for his roles in Jack Reacher and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
Well done, Sach!

Robert Pattinson is in Australia this week plugging the hell out of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
And the British star appeared to be getting some things off his chest too!
Now that he’s back with Kristen Stewart after she cheated on him with Brit director Rupert Sanders, the actor made it very clear that he loathed the nickname R-Pattz given to him by the tabloid press.
Sitting down to with Channel 10′s The Late News with Angela Bishop, he said: “I would like to break the hands and mouth of the person who came up with it.”
The heartthrob added: “When I got this part, every single article that came out was ‘RPattz’s struggle for credibility!’ I don’t understand who invented that thing, ‘RPattz,’ I want to strangle them. I thought you’ve got to come up with something else.” Oo-er!
And not only does the nickname R-Patz bother the hell out of him, he also gets pissy when the “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” phrases are thrown at him, referring to rival characters in the “Twilight” films.
R-Pattz said (woops, I mean Robert said): “It’s making it like a sport or something. People can’t really watch the films any more… they’re thinking about all this other silliness.”
Oh dear, it doesn’t sound to me as if his therapy sessions back in LA are working for him. It’s only a name Robert…perhaps you are taking all of this a bit too seriously… Chill!

It looks as if British film director Rupert Sanders and his estranged supermodel wife Liberty Ross are doing everything they can to work things out.
The couple appears to be back on, after pictures of the pair caught in clinch, have surfaced as they left a therapy session in Beverly Hills earlier this week.
A close source claims the ball is currently in Liberty’s court and she has allegedly decided to give Rupert “the rat” another chance.
But here’s the thing, neither of them were wearing their wedding bands!
Following the glare of publicity surrounding the home-wrecking affair, Ross took some time out to process the scandal, as she and Sanders have been married for 15 years.
Meanwhile, Robert Pattinson and was spotted with his “trampire” Kristen Stewart have also been spotted together looking rather cozy.
Totally coincidental of course… Perfect timing though, this is all happening on one month ahead of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 hitting the big screen. The publicists must be having a field day!
And I hear that Sanders has just landed his first post Snow White and the Huntsman gig too, on a new a movie entitled The Juliet.
So, I guess Rupert’s career isn’t over just yet, or so it would seem!

Liberty Ross fooled the paps on Tuesday night and had us all thinking everything was back on between her hubby film director Rupert Sanders, after the stunning British supermodel was seen wearing what looked like her wedding ring again.
That wouldn’t be too surprising if it were true, especially after hearing Robert Pattinson is allegedly back living with his cheating “trampire” girlfriend Kristen Stewart.
According to sources, Sanders is now desperate to save his marriage, after he was caught cheating on Ross with Snow White and the Huntsman actress Stewart, back in July.
I spotted Ross looking chic and sexy, dolled up in a pair of trendy black leather pants, sporting a huge diamond ring on what appeared to be her wedding finger as she exited the Chateau Marmont hotel.
Er… But not so fast!
Upon closer inspection of the aforementioned piece of “bling,” it turns out the diamond was actually being worn on her MIDDLE finger and not on her wedding finger after all.
Oh well, so I guess all is NOT forgiven just yet, Rupert my dear… Keep trying though!

British actor Robert Pattinson and love cheat co-star Kristen Stewart are allegedly “working things out” after they held secret heart-to-heart talks last weekend, according to sources.
The source revealed that R-Patz, 26, has forgiven Kristen, dubbed the “Trampire” by diehard Twilight fans for her “stupid mistake.”
This comes just months after he walked out on her over snaps of Stewart cheating on him with married Brit film director Rupert Sanders, 41, hit the headlines.
Both stars have made separate public appearances since the scandal broke, but neither of them has spoken publicly in any detail about the status of their relationship. It is safe to say, “It’s complicated!”
After the betrayal, R-Patz moved out of the Hollywood home that he shared with KStew back in June.
One insider said: “They pretty much decided they couldn’t live without each other. Kristen poured her heart out to Robert and told him it was a one-off and a mistake.”
If the couple is getting back together, then it is sure to make the promotion of the final upcoming installment – Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 a heck of a lot easier!
Breaking Dawn – Part 2 theaters on November 16.

Twilight actress Kristen Stewart still manages to look drop-dead gorgeous despite her recent troubles.
The love cheat has crawled out from under the stone from whence she lay to pose for international photographer Mario Testino for October’s issue of British Vogue.
This is her first interview since being dumped by her longtime boyf’, co-star Robert Pattinson.
Stewart, 22, and R-Patz, 26, split last month after Stewart had a much publicized fling with married film director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart was papped kissing the “Snow White” director on a cozy date, and since then all hell has broken loose in her life.
She told the glossy magazine, out next Monday, why she often struggles to deal with fame: “I’m not that smooth,” she says.
“I can get clumsy around certain people.”
“Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be!”
Um, You got very clumsy Kristen…you got caught!
Here’s some advice on how to conduct yourself in public… Try NOT kissing men behind your boyfriend’s back in future!

Get ready for the mother of all bitter custody battles ever… No, Tom Cruise isn’t about to fight Katie Holmes for Suri, even bigger that that (ahem, joke) Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are about to go head to head over the custody of their dog, Bear.
After news broke last week that the naughty actress had a shock affair with film director Rupert Sanders, R-Patz swiftly moved out of the mansion they shared in Los Angeles.
Now, according to well-placed sources, the newly separated couple has since agreed that Stewart, 22, will keep her cat, Max, but Rob wants full ownership of the dog they recently adopted from a New Orleans shelter.
The shamed actress, who plays Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga, is particularly fond of the pooch, having helped Rob, 26, to nurse him through potentially fatal canine disease Parvo.
One source said: “After Rob moved his things out of their Los Angeles apartment, the then told Kristen he wanted Bear.
“She was heartbroken – they adopted Bear together and she’s always felt that he was their little baby.
The source added: “But Rob was so hurt by Kristen’s actions he decided that he wants the dog to help him get over what happened. After all, a dog is a man’s best friend and Bear is such a good companion.”
Insiders are now saying that Kristen is getting ready to put up a fight to keep hold of the pup.
“Kristen won’t give up Bear in a hurry. She helped Rob save Bear from Parvo disease, which nearly took his life when he was a puppy.
“She wants joint custody – and it could get a little messy,” the source claimed.
I hope the couple gets to sort things out before the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, this type of public brouhaha is sure to affect the promotion of its upcoming release… I say give it up K-Stew, you are not the popular bunny you use to be!
Even though they say, “All’s fair in love and War Paw!” Um, not in this case…

Twilight fans got a taste of what’s coming earlier this week when producing giants Summit Entertainment released their new character art for Breaking Dawn – Part 2 at Comic-Con.
I have to say, it was quite a thrill seeing British actress Judi Shekoni gracing the movie’s onesheet.
I announced back in 2010 that the former top-model had landed a plum role opposite Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart playing the Amazonian beauty Zafrina.
Zafrina is described as someone that has lived outside of civilization for centuries, not attempting to keep up a human façade; she is among the oldest vampires in the world and a descendant of an ancient tribe.
Starring in Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is a far cry from her days playing ‘Precious’ in Britain’s top soap opera Eastenders, which launched Shekoni as a household name back in 2002, seeing her literally land the front-page of every tabloid on the shelf.
Suffice to say, the attention has lead her to good things, and hopefully she won’t have to go back to Albert Square anytime soon.
Judi told me, “Precious is dead, long live Zafrina!”
Fingers crossed that Judi is around for as long as Zafrina. Knowing this ambitious lass, I am sure she will be!
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is released November 14, 2012
