Tom Cruise has topped a new poll of money-making celebrities after raking in a fortune for cinema bosses in 2005.

It's the seventh time the WAR OF THE WORLDS star has topped the annual Quigley Publishing Company Top Ten Money-Making Stars Poll, and the 18th time he has featured in the top 10.

Johnny Depp comes in at number two on the 74th annual list, ahead of Hollywood couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The Quigley Poll, which has been conducted every year since 1932, is an annual survey of motion picture exhibitors, which asks them to vote for the 10 stars that generated the most box office revenue in the preceding year for their cinemas.

Exhibitors were also asked to name the Stars of Tomorrow - Jack Black and Dakota Fanning topped the 2005 list.

The top 10 money-making stars of 2005 are:





5. Vince Vaughn

6. George Clooney

7. Will Smith

8. Reese Witherspoon

9. Adam Sandler

10. Tom Hanks
