Jim Carrey passes Pam Anderson on Canadian mag’s power list

Actor Jim Carrey has passed Pamela Anderson to take the top spot on Canadian Business magazine’s second annual Celebrity Power List.
The magazine used four criteria - estimated salary, press clippings, number hits on Google.com and TV mentions - to rank 15 Canadians who have demonstrated clout in the entertainment industry over the last year.

According to the magazine, Carrey’s improved web scores and a bump in the TV category put him ahead of Anderson. Carrey, who was born in Newmarket, Ont., is the highest-paid Canadian actor in Hollywood.

Anderson, a native of Ladysmith, B.C., slipped to No. 2 on the list after her sitcom Stacked was cancelled.

The complete list:

1. Jim Carrey.

2. Pamela Anderson.

3. Keanu Reeves.

4. Kiefer Sutherland.

5. William Shatner.

6. Mike Myers.

7. Avril Lavigne.

8. Rachel McAdams.

9. Matthew Perry.

10. Brendan Fraser.

11. Hayden Christensen.

12. Eric McCormack.

13. Sandra Oh.

14. Ryan Reynolds.

15. Evangeline Lilly.
