The 2012 China Celebrity 100 list from Forbes has just been out. The list is compiled based on each celebrity’s activities, earnings, and exposure between the period of March 1, 2011 to February 29, 2012. In the top 10, our favorite “Double J” Jay Chou and Jolin Tsai occupy 1st and 7th place respectively. Jolin expressed through her manager, “Thank you for everyone’s support.” Lin Chi-Ling rounds out the top 10 as she has maintained her popularity by making movies and filming an underwear ad, which she pocketed 23 million TWD for.

Other popular Taiwanese actors and singers include Leehom Wang, Show Luo, A-Mei Chang, and Mayday. Shu Qi takes the 19th spot with her outstanding acting as well as drawing the public’s attention with her ambiguous rumored relationship with Leehom. Nicky Wu also makes it on the list after making a comeback with the hit mainland drama, “Scarlet Heart”. Both Ethan Ruan and Kaneshiro Takeshi are on the list, which is not a surprise.
