CinemaCon 2014 - The CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards Brought To You By The Coca-Cola Company

Actor and comedian Adam Sandler topped Forbes’ list of the most overpaid stars in Hollywood once again.

This is the second consecutive year that he is estimated to earn way more than he deserves, the magazine said on Tuesday.

”We looked at the last three movies of the biggest stars in Hollywood and calculated what they were paid and what the movies earned to come up with what is essentially a return on investment number for each star. We estimate that for every $1 Sandler was paid, he returned an average of $3.20.”

He is followed by Johny Depp, who earns $4.10 for every $1 paid, and Ben Stiller, who returns $4.80 for every $1 paid.
Oddly enough, there is only one actress on the list – Sandra Bullock, who ranked 9th because she makes $9 for every $1 paid.

Here are the top 10 grossly overpaid superstars in Hollywood:

  1. Adam Sandler: returns $3.20 for every $1 paid.
  2. Johnny Depp: returns $4.10 for every $1 paid.
  3. Ben Stiller: returns $4.80 for every $1 paid.
  4. Ryan Reynolds: returns $4.90 for every $1 paid.
  5. Tom Hanks: returns $5.20 for every $1 paid.
  6. Will Ferrell: returns $6.60 for every $1 paid.
  7. Channing Tatum: returns $6.70 for every $1 paid.
  8. Denzel Washington: returns $6.90 for every $1 paid.
  9. Sandra Bullock: returns $9 for every $1 paid.
  10. Ben Affleck: returns $9.37 for every $1 paid.
