Eddie Murphy: Forbes’ Most Overpaid Actors List. See Who Makes Top 10

My favorite annual Forbes‘ list has come out! It’s Forbes’ 2012 ‘Most Overpaid Actors In Hollywood’ List, shamefully topped this year by Eddie Murphy. Murphy’s career seems to need a complete overhaul with Forbes calling three of some of the actor’s most recent films, Imagine That, A Thousand Words and Meet Dave,  ’colossal flops.’

Katherine Heigl and Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock (WHOA!!, really?!) are the next on the Forbes’ most overpaid list with Jack Black rounding out the top 5. Last year, Drew Barrymore topped this list with Murphy coming in second.

To compile the list, Forbes considered the 40 highest paid stars in Hollywood who starred in at least 3 movies in the past five years. They then added up production budgets and divided that by how much the actors were paid to come up with a final investment return (shown below).

Below is Forbes’ complete list of 2012 ‘Most Overpaid Actors In Hollywood’:

  1. Eddie Murphy (Returns $2.30 for every $1 paid to the actor)
  2. Katherine Heigl (Returns $3.40 for every $1 paid to the actress)
  3. Reese Witherspoon (Returns $3.90 for every $1 paid to the actress)
  4. Sandra Bullock (Returns $5 for every $1 paid to the actress)
  5. Jack Black (Returns $5.20 for every $1 paid to the actor)
  6. Nicolas Cage (Returns $6 for every $1 paid to the actor)
  7. Adam Sandler (Returns $6.30 for every $1 paid to the actor)
  8. Denzel Washington (Returns $6.30 for every $1 paid to the actor)
  9. Ben Stiller (Returns $6.50 for every $1 paid to the actor)
  10. Sarah Jessica Parker (Returns $7 for every $1 paid to the actress)
