Forbes: Highest-Paid Celebrities 2012

9. George Lucas

$90 million

Thanks to the massive success of the "Star Wars" franchise, Lucas earns more money just by waking up in the morning than many people will see in a lifetime. But Lucas plows much of that money back into his company Industrial Light and Magic, which provides effects for movies like "Battleship" and "The Avengers." Lucas' passion project, "Red Tails" about the Tuskegee airmen, fizzled at the box office, bringing in only $50 million.
