Yahoo! Shine takes a look at some famous females who earn more than their partners.

Angelina Jolie, Kyra Sedgwick and Katy Perry—who would have thought this trio would have anything  in common besides fame, great hair and killer bods? Oh wait, they're all in possession of terrifically loaded bank accounts.

According to Yahoo! Shine, Angelina earned $30 million last year, while Brad earned just $20 million. Kyra brought home $275,000 per episode from her gig on The Closer, a far cry from Kevin's current salary, since he's staying at home with the kids.
