Please. Forbes is a business magazine but... it's not exactly the most respected one. They have a list of fictional character's wealth for pete's sake And they do get things wrong:

Quote:
But how much can Forbes really know about how much Gisele is worth? Reports of her earnings are merely reports, unconfirmed by Gisele and her people, many guessed by Forbes reporters themselves. Gisele told GQ in 2008 that Forbes had wildly overestimated her salary; she may have been motivated to downplay her earnings for tax and personal-image purposes, but Forbes can only know so much when most of the figures are not made public. It's also not impossible that Gisele's agents gave some tips — possibly exaggerated ones — to Forbes to make her seem incredibly, incredibly wealthy so they look good (but also not likely — it's hard to imagine her agents telling reporters anything about her bank account). Also, it's hard for anyone to say definitively how much a celebrity like Gisele is really worth. Who knows if she even knows? The woman is surely a millionaire — who cares about a few extra million here and there?

^Advo, you are completely right, thanks for posting the quote, the Forbes lists are such bs.

Here is an intersting article from The Daily Mail, so guess I do not know how reliable the info is but from what their saying she is now getting a cut of the profits from the sandals and intimates line, she is not just licensing her name

Quote:
Forbes explained: 'Instead of licensing her name to [Hope, Brazil's answer to Victoria's Secret], like most celebrities do, she created her own brand, Gisele Bundchen Brazilian Intimates, which since last week is being sold exclusively at Hope’s stores...

'She’ll also own a stake in the company, a savvy move few celebrities make.'


The article says she might be the first BILLIONAIRE supermodel.

Of course Gisele would never talk about such info. She can't even say she loves her step son or that she can eat junk food without being torn to shreds . Could you imagine if she talked (and in some people's cases with her "bragged") about her earnings? yikes.

^I think that stems from the fact that her english language skill do not allow her to correctly articulate her sentiments/opinions. So when you ead them they come out a bit crass.

yes I do agree with that. I noticed the media nit picking got worse after the whole Bridget/Tom debacle.

I don't think this one was posted. Gisele also made the Forbe's celebrity 100 list, lol.

^I must say I was shocked at the bashing Gisele took, but I thought she handled herself really well esoecially since Bridgett was really hitting below the belt by trying to make her out to be homewrecker, where it was Bridgett who ran to the tabloids and bashed Giselle. Must be awful that she will be linked to this woman for the rest of her life.

I agree kobro! I kind of hate that Gisele has to be linked forever to Tom's and Bridget's ordeal because her reputation has clearly suffered the most from it all.

I don't respect anyone who has to go to tabloids and talk others down publicly, sorry.

Well thank god she came out relatively unscathed and most importantly as they say living well is the best revenge, and her life seems to be very rosy.

^Craaaaazy. I didn't know Tom was just as rich as her, I would have thought Beyoncé and Jay-Z would make more than Gisele and Tom.

^ beyonce technically took a year off so that would probably be why... but i would think even on a yr off her royalties and everything she endorses would still be way more than gisele and tom combined! and thats not even counting jay-z.

Used to love her, put me right off with her "i'm the first woman to give birth in the world and i'm going to lecture you all" attitude.

I think it's super weird that they are the highest paid celebrity couple. particularly because do not even know who Tom Brady is, he clearly did not cross to Europe yet.

Gisele's Ipanema Sandals reportedly made 31 million in their first year out (2001). I wonder how much they rake in now? To me that was her best investment ever.

Her Hope Lingerie deal is estimated to bring her 19 million by the end of the year. Its her brands, not just modeling. She is a pure (successful) business woman now.
