Drew Barrymore Tops List Of Most Overpaid
It's no secret that actors who carry a multi-million dollar price tag get away with it because they draw in huge numbers — and even bigger millions — at the box office. Not always, says Forbes. Just look at Drew Barrymore, named the number one most overpaid actor in Hollywood.
For every dollar Barrymore gets paid, her movie earns a mere forty cents, Forbes calculates, based on the past three non-animated films she has starred in. Her 2009 film, Everybody’s Fine, earned only $16 million globally, and her 2007 film, Lucky You, brought in only $8 million.
Eddie Murphy was also near the top of the list, though he at least turns a profit. Murphy, the star of such flops as Meet Dave and Imagine That, returns to $2.70 for every dollar. Rounding out the top five are Will Ferrell, Reese Witherspoon and Denzel Washington, each of whom have gotten big paydays recently for poorly received films.
