Despite being named one of "The World's 100 Most Powerful Women" by Forbes magazine in 2005, Jacobson was unceremoniously fired at Disney during a top-to-bottom restructuring one year later.

Down, but never out, she soon came back as the head of her own production company and launched yet another popular franchise with "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" (2010). Aggressive, intuitive and supremely competent, Jacobson had clearly proven herself to be a long-term Hollywood power player.
