Will and Jada Pinkett Smith

A 13-year marriage is an eternity in Hollywood, but Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have found a way to blend their business empire and family life. Forbes reports that the couple pulled in $23 million between June 2012 and June 2013 and their production company, Overbrook Entertainment, has already generated $2.5 billion in worldwide box-office and home-video sales.

Will and Jada cofounded their company with James Lassiter in 1998, and since then, they have churned out hits like “Ali,” “Hitch,” “I Am Legend,”  “Hancock,” “Secret Lives Of Bees,” and “The Karate Kid.” 

Jada also produced the hit cable drama “Hawthorne,” under the Overbrook banner, and along with Jay Z, their company is   currently producing the “Annie” remake.

  1. I think it's wonderful that these couples are being highlighted – and that they have managed to blend their considerable intelligence, talent, creativity, ingenuity, and business acumen together to amass a fortune – but my favorite of all favorite power couples is missing – Bill and Camille Cosby – and you cannot speak of power couples and not include them. They've been married partners for a long time and deserve to be among the top of that list. Please make the correction. In the interim, kudos to all that you've included here.
