Before you go thinking Brangelina is a cliche choice for #1, remember: We’re just dealing with the facts and stats. These two command the box office. Jolie reportedly earns around $15 million per picture, and she made three movies last year, so you do the math. As for Pitt, he rakes in around $20 million per film, and he made two in 2008. Combine those numbers with the numerous awards and nominations this couple has under their belts, and the results are staggering: Jolie’s won three Golden Globes and an Oscar, while Pitt’s won one Golden Globe and had two Academy Award nominations. Basically, these two are cinematic royalty. And as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency, Angelina has converted Brad to her do-gooding ways. The couple now heads the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which they donate millions of dollars to annually to aid humanitarian crises.
This category’s a no brainer: Brangelina is smokin’. Angelina’s legendary pout is rivaled only by Brad’s perfect facial structure, and both of their bodies are to die for. It doesn’t get much sexier than this, so let’s be grateful they’re procreating.
You can’t open an issue of Us Weekly or People without seeing Brad and Angie staring back at you — and that’s been the case for the past four years. Last month, more than 2.25 million Google searches were performed for Jolie, and Pitt scored another 1.5 million. All these two have to do is walk down the street, and every media outlet around reports on it.

It’s safe to say that Brad and Angelina have more reasons to stay together than your average celebrity couple. In fact, they have six: Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Pax, Vivienne and Knox. Still, kids can’t ensure a long-lasting relationship, and rumors have been running rampant about a rift between these two. (Hear Angie talk to Matt Lauer about their crazy family below.) Also, their track records are star-studded enough to suggest they’re not losing interest with the Hollywood crowd (Angie’s exes include Billy Bob Thornton and Johnny Lee Miller; Brad’s are Juliette Lewis, Gwyneth Paltrow and of course, Jennifer Aniston).
