NEW YORK (AP) _ Jim Carrey tops the list in a poll of the Top Ten Money-Making Stars of 2003 by Quigley Publishing Co., which conducts an annual survey of motion picture exhibitors.

Nicole Kidman finished second, followed by Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, Julia Roberts, Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe, Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell and Renee Zellweger.

The Quigley Poll, conducted every year since 1932, asks motion picture exhibitors to vote for the 10 stars who generated the most box-office revenue for their theaters.

Exhibitors also were asked to name the Stars of Tomorrow for 2003 _ one actor and one actress who they feel will be top moneymakers in the years to come. The 2003 winners are Ashton Kutcher and Scarlett Johansson.
