Forbes has released the 2012’s Most Overpaid Actors and the list includes Oscar winner, Razzie winners and an Oscar and Razzie winner.
Eddie Murphy, who has been in box office dud after box office dud, tops the list by only making $2.30 for every $1 paid. Next up is Katherine Heigl, who hung up TV scrubs to be a RomCom star, makes $3.40 for every $1 paid and looks like she made a mistake leaving Grey’s Anatomy. Next up is the first Oscar winner on the list and kind of a surprise, Reese Witherspoon makes $3.90 for every $1 paid. She is followed by another Oscar winner, Sandra Bullock makes $5 for every $1 paid, and her new movie looks it will get her higher up on the list. Jack Black is $.20 behind her, and the only reason why he isn’t up there with Murphy is his animated movies earn the big bucks. Nicolas Cage might be happy he is on a list even if it is this one. Adam Sandler is next on the list at $6.30 for every $1 paid and I am sure he will be climbing the list next year. Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington is tied with the man whose movie won every Razzie earlier this year. Ben Stiller does sh!tty movies, but there is still an audience for them. Sarah Jessica Parker closes out the list, who knew she is still making movie.
Where is Will Ferrell because his movies are barely watchable, but like Ben Stiller he some how gets an audience. Other people I am surprised not on the list are Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper, Will Smith and Tom Cruise. I think in the next few years Brad Pitt, Melissa McCarthy, Steve Carrell, Zach Galifianakis, Russell Brand, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will be one of Forbes Most Overpaid Actors.
Who do you think is missing and who will be there in the future.
