Johnny Nunez/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Jay Z and Beyonce are crazy in love, and they're also crazy rich: they've topped Forbes' list of Highest-Earning Celebrity Couples, earning a combined total of $95 million.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt also made the list, ranking third.  The two have a combined earning of $50 million mostly thanks to their films./>/>

Jolie and Pitt are rarely spokespersons for any brand -- except when Pitt lent his fame to a Chanel No. 5 commercial, earning him $7 million -- but the two do own a wine business together, a 1,000-acre estate in Correns, France where they produce and sell a rose wine called Miraval, a joint venture with winemakers Famille Perrin.

Ashton Kutcher and his girlfriend Mila Kunis also made the list at No. 4, with a combined total of $35 million. Although Kutcher is still technically married to Demi Moore, he and Kunis made the list together thanks to Kutcher being the highest-paid actor on TV with Two and a Half Men, and Kunis' success in films such as the recent hit Oz The Great and Powerful.

Other celeb couples who made the list include NFL player Tom Brady with wife Gisele Bundchen in second, earning a combined $80 million, and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, who both earned $30 million, good enough for fifth place.

Forbes' measured the celeb couples' earnings from the period June 2012 to June 2013 by talking to agents, producers and managers. Fees, taxes and other expenses were not deducted from the estimates./>/>/>/>/>/>
