PRETTY WOMAN star JULIA ROBERTS has been declared the most powerful film star in the world.
She has beaten fellow Hollywood heart-throbs TOM HANKS AND MEL GIBSON to reach the top of author JAMES ULMER's HOT LIST.
Roberts was the first woman to join the highly exclusive $20 million (£13.3 million) club of Hollywood's famous names and is said by the author to guarantee massive sales for movies that she stars in. (RD/WNTRE/RGS)
