We don't want to say that actors have it easy, but Forbes' new list of the most overpaid actors sure isn't doing much to convince us of the contrary. Sure, being a celebrity comes with its fair share of scrutiny and paparazzi stalking, but when you're making tens of millions of dollars on a movie flop, life looks pretty cushy. The finance mag calculated the Hollywood bigwigs who offer the least ROI, and while the celebs themselves may not come as a surprise, the numbers certainly will.
Forbes used a pretty simple formula: It took actors' paychecks on their last three movies and pitted them against the flicks' box-office earnings. Adam Sandler, notorious for blockbuster flops, topped the list thanks to Jack & Jill and That's My Boy. Despite being one of the few actors in town who can still demand a $15 million paycheck, very few of his movies seem to pan out at the theaters.
The same goes for the rest of his fellow actors on the list — a runaway hit or tabloid bait may have earned them a spot on the A-list, but the buck stops there. Click through to find out the rest of the actors who are all smoke and mirrors.
