What hasn’t Oprah Winfrey done?

The talk show host, magazine editor, philanthropist and icon was named the most influential woman in the entertainment industry in the Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment: Power 100 list.

Winfrey was chosen “based on her dizzying array of Oprah-branded media and her immense cultural influence,” the trade publication’s editor-in-chief Elizabeth Guider said in a statement Friday.

Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie topped the list of the highest-paid actresses.

Jolie, whose 2008 movies grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide, commands more than $15 million a movie.

On the Power 100 list, Jolie was followed by Julia Roberts and 2007’s best-paid actress, Reese Witherspoon.
