Who Are Today’s Most Overpaid Movie Actors? Take A Look!

Who Are Today's Most Overpaid Movie Actors? Take A Look!

When people think of actors and actresses, they immediately associate them with lives of glitz and glamour, primarily because they have a crapload (do you like my sophisticated word?) of cash-dollar-monies in that bank account of theirs. Yes, the celebs get big checks, but do all of them deserve those hefty chunks of change? According to Forbes Magazine, not all of them do.

The magazine took a look at 40 top-earning actors and their compensation for their starring roles within the past five years. Those numbers were then compared to the films overall operating income. So who took the title of “No. 1 Most Overpaid” Hollywood A-lister?

Drew Barrymore! Does that surprise any of you? It actually did me. Apparently, her films only generate 40 cents for every dollar that she’s paid. Oh, sad day for Drew. But, I mean, she prob doesn’t care all that much LOL because she’s still getting the bucks regardless of what this magazine reports on her. So there, take that, Forbes!

Here’s the full list they generated, courtesy of Forbes.com:

1. Drew Barrymore

2. Eddie Murphy

3. Will Ferrell

4. Reese Witherspoon

5. Denzel Washington

6. Nicolas Cage

7. Adam Sandler

8. Vince Vaughn

9. Tom Cruise (Good ol’ Tommy, how have ya been?)

10. Nicole Kidman

We love you all, really . . . we do.
