The glamorous star was the only Brit on the top 10 compiled by US industry magazine Adweek, easily beating fellow Hollywood beauties Angelina Jolie and Nicole Kidman.

They each pocketed 6.7 million to endorse St John and Chanel No 5 respectively.
Zeta Jones` campaign for T-Mobile was only used in America.

Adweek said her two-year, 5.6 million-a-year, contract signed in 2002 to appear in TV and print advertising was still considered one of the most lucrative endorsement deals ever made.

It was renewed last year, the magazine said.

Brad Pitt was the only man to make the list, taking eighth place for his 2.2 million deal to promote Heineken beer.

In fourth place was actress Jessica Simpson, who netted 4.2 million to advertise Guthy-Renker.

Next came Gwyneth Paltrow and Charlize Theron, who each made a reported 3.4 million for deals with Estee Lauder and Dior.

Julia Roberts was said to have earned 2.8 million from Gianfranco Ferre, and Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz 2.2 million each from L`Oreal.
