10 Most Overpaid Actors and Actresses

billkozyBillkozy on 12/18/2012

Forbes Magazine calculated these rankings based on what the performers earned for their last three projects and then juxtaposed that figure with what the box office revenue for those films was. So, in the case of the most overpaid performer of all (in question 1), that person brought in an average of $2.30 at the box office for every $1 that was spent on his/her salary. The second most overpaid performer (in Question 2) pulled in $3.40 for every $1 spent on him/her. And so on.

Personally, I kind of take issue with the determination. Philosophically, one could argue, that if one of these performers was NOT cast in the movie, then who knows if that movie would have many any money at all! So for instance, what if the "Most Overpaid Actor" was not in the three movies they examined, and someone else was. Maybe those movies wouldn't have even made a fraction of what they did with the star, as disappointing as that box office may have been. Looking at it that way, those films might have been extremely lucky to have have these performers in them--there's really no way to draw a conclusion like Forbes is making unless you could have the very same films compared based on having different performers in those roles.

In any event, here is the list, according to Forbes.

It appeared to me that some of the questions had two answers?
