Not that you needed a list to tell you, but Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are quite wealthy. 

The 20-year-old twins came in at number one on Forbes' new list of young Hollywood's top earners. 

Using box office receipts, album sales, tour grosses, TV ratings and other revenue sources (and not bothering to subtract taxes or management fees), the list-happy business magazine ranked 10 under-21 celebs according to their earnings in 2006. 

While the Olsen twins haven't really "acted" since 2004's "New York Minute (and Mary-Kate had a quick cameo in last year's Edie Sedgwick biopic Factory Girl), the former Full House cuties together pocketed about $40 million from their multimedia empire Dualstar, which houses their clothing, accessory and fragrance lines, DVDs, posters and magazines.  

Mini-Martha Stewarts, you might call them. 

Although he's not yet in J.K. Rowling's income bracket, Daniel Radcliffe, 17, earned approximately $13 million last year—good enough for second place on the Forbes list—for his role in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the fifth installment in the teenage-wizard series.

To pass the time until the film's July 13 opening, and to show that he's more than just a lightning-scarred Hogwarts student, a surprisingly sinewy Radcliffe disrobed on the London stage this month in a revival of Peter Shaffer's man-obsessed-with-horse play Equus   

Lindsay Lohan apparently found time to negotiate a few deals last year when she wasn't filming, recovering from various ailments or partying. The 20-year-old Bobby star, who completed a stint in rehab barely two weeks ago, took in $6 million in '06. 

Lohan is up next in the drama Georgia Rule and is currently filming the thriller I Know Who Killed Me.  

Next up is 13-year-old Dakota Fanning, who polarized audiences earlier this year with her turn in Hounddog, which features a scene in which her character is raped. Although the indie drama failed to find a distributor after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival last month, Fanning can dry her eyes with that $4 million Charlotte's Web paycheck.

Fifth place goes to former sitcom star Amanda Bynes, 20, who starred in the Twelfth Night-inspired teen comedy She's the Man and earned $2.5 million last year. Next up is the big-screen musical Hairspray, in which Bynes plays Tracy Turnblad's best pal, Penny Pingleton.   

In other trips to the bank, some of which required the signature of a legal guardian:

  • Heroes cheerleader Hayden Panettiere, 17, was both saved and given $2 million for her spontaneous-regeneration efforts.
  • High School Musical star Vanessa Anne Hudgens sang her heart out and, not only did she make $2 million last year, but the 18-year-old Disney Channel fixture will also be back for the sequel.
  • Oscar-nominated Little Miss Sunshine hopeful Abigail Breslin, 10, didn't win the crown, but she did earn $1.5 million and a role in the upcoming Catherine Zeta-Jones comedy No Reservations.
  • Everybody Hates Chris star Tyler James Williams, 14, can buy new friends with his $1.2 million.
  • RV actress and "Too Little Too Late" singer Joanna "JoJo" Levesque couldn't say the same about her $1 million payday.
