Who are 2012′s most overpaid actors?

Eddie Murphy

Every year, Forbes crunches the numbers and comes up with the ten most overpaid actors in Hollywood, based on returns versus salary and yadda yadda yadda numbers! Anyway, this year saw a number of big names who failed to bring in audiences despite raking in huge pay checks? Well …

  1. Eddie Murphy – $2.30 : $1
  2. Katherine Heigl – $3.40 : $1
  3. Reese Witherspoon – $3.90 : $1
  4. Sandra Bullock – $5 : $1
  5. Jack Black – $5.20 : $1
  6. Nicolas Cage – $6 : $1
  7. Adam Sandler – $6.30 : $1
  8. Denzel Washington – $6.30 : $1
  9. Ben Stiller – $6.50 : $1
  10. Sarah Jessica Parker – $7 : $1

Not gonna lie, I think that’s the first and last time Adam Sandler and Denzel Washington will ever tie on anything. That being said, no surprise Eddie Murphy is number one, since the poor bastard hasn’t made a decent movie since Dreamgirls, and even then they kept him in the background most of the time. Likewise, Katherine Heigl has made exactly one good movie (Knocked Up) and then proceeded to bad mouth it, so I’m going to blame karma on that one. And Nicolas Cage … once again, the man only seems to take roles that require him to go completely insane. Do the math on that one.
