Phew, the UK's Richest People Under 30 are Movie Stars

robertpattinson225.jpgHere it is, the reason I renewed my subscription to the internet: Rich lists. They're just maddening, enthralling and depressing no matter who's on them. Actually, if I were on one, I'd be depressed about it. Like, "I'm the richest? Is this all there is? Time to move to Sedona. Time to open a stationery shop." On the UK magazine Heat's 30 Under 30 Rich List, you'll be pleased to learn that the UK's young movie stars make more money than its pop stars. But who leads the tally?

Once again, your blue-eyed song-and-dance man Daniel Radcliffe wins top honors -- and by a very healthy margin. Keira Knightley's Pirates booty earns her the runner-up spot, and that well-foreheaded heartthrob Robert Pattinson gets the bronze medal. I assume this list was put together some months ago, because I'm pretty sure Adele is officially more popular than Leona Lewis ever was. Though maybe Avatar theme rights qualify you for instant riches. Whatever! Here's the full list. Jamie Bell, I see you down there.
