Who is the most overpaid actor in Hollywood?
It's Eddie Murphy, reports Forbes.
Forbes compiled the list based on the actors' last three projects. The magazine calculated the average of how much each star's last three films earned at the box office per dollar of pay. Murphy's last three films, "Meet Dave," "A Thousand Words," and "Imagine That" have been, according to Forbes, "spectacular bombs."
Check out the rest of the top 10, along with the magazine's reasons for why the actors landed there.
2. Katherine Heigl. Her most recent film, "One For The Money," earned just $37 million.
3. Reese Witherspoon. Last year's "How Do You Know" earned only $50 million on an estimated budget of $120 million.
4. Sandra Bullock. Her movie "All About Steve" flopped at the box office.
5. Jack Black. Black's movie "The Big Year" earned only $7 million on a budget of $40 million.
6. Nicolas Cage. Last year's "Drive Angry" grossed only $29 million worldwide.
7. Adam Sandler. "Jack and Jill" disappointed at the box office.
8. Denzel Washington. According to Forbes, Washington's films do fine at the box office, but the actor "commands an outsized paycheck."
9. Ben Stiller. Stiller earns so much that even though last year's "Tower Heist" earned $153 million, it didn't make much of a profit.
10. Sarah Jessica Parker. Last year's film "I Don't Know How She Does It" cost $25 million to make and barely earned $30 million.
