It’s the classic American story…beautiful cheerleader/prom queen/most popular girl in school is swept off her feet by quarterback of the football team who squires her and protects and provides for her.  Disney has made millions off of the idea of Prince Charming coming to the rescue of the beautiful damsel.

Tom Brady is the quarterback of the New England Patriots and he certainly is handsome, charming and rich earning more than 25 million dollars a year.  BUT in his fairy tale, his damsel is definitely NOT in distress and as Forbes reports, more than capable of paying her own way!Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen has topped Forbes' highest paid models list after earning $45 million in a year. The list, which covers models' earnings from May, 2011 to May, 2012, shows the catwalk star had a hugely lucrative 12 months thanks to bumper pay deals from Versace and Pantene.  Compared to other top models it wasn’t even close. British model Kate Moss came a distant second -- earning nearly $10 million due to contracts with Topshop, Mango and Rimmel. Russian stunner Natalia Vodianova, the face of Calvin Klein, earned $8.6 million to come third in the list, while Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima landed fourth place with $7.3 million. Dutch beauty Doutzen Kroes rounded out the top five with estimated earnings of $7 million. Heidi Klum, a regular fixture on previous lists, was deemed more of a businesswoman than a model and removed from Forbes' calculations.
