Harrison Ford and his girlfriend, Calista Flockhart, landed second place with combined earning of $ 69 million, reports the Daily Telegraph. And it looks like the earnings are going to increase if Ford bags the fifth installment of Indiana Jones.

 

Ford, 67, who was pitted against Soviet agents in the fourth Indy film, wants to take the relationship between his new wife, played by Karen Allen, and his son, played by Shia LaBeouf, forward.

 

'I'd love to see a development of the relationship between Indy, his son and new wife,' the Daily Star quoted him as saying. 'Producer George Lucas is working on an idea and if he can come up with something, Steven Spielberg and I have to agree to go ahead with it,' he added.

 

As for Calista, she's staying put at Brothers and Sisters.

Footballer David and his wife Victoria Beckham wrapped up the top five with an earning of $ 46 million.

 

And it's a good thing that the Beckhams are loaded because Victoria has admitted that she is addicted to shopping after splurging 1 million pounds on just one trip to a street in Milan, Italy.

 

The former Spice girl shopped at the most expensive shopping street, the Via Montenapoleone, in the town.

 

'I did spend too much. Shopping is like a drug. The more you have, the more you want,' the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
