Who are Hollywood’s most bankable stars?

Earlier this month, Forbes put together their list of the most overpaid stars in Hollywood, with Eddie Murphy landing at number one, the first time that’s ever happened to him in years. Well, Forbes created the flip-side to that list, featuring the most bankable stars in Hollywood.

Natalie Portman – $42.70 : $1.00
Kristen Stewart – $40.60 : $1.00
Shia LaBeouf – $35.80 : $1.00
Robert Pattinson – $31.70 : $1.00
Daniel Radcliffe – $30.50 : $1.00
Taylor Lautner – $29.50 : $1.00
Bradley Cooper – $25.00 : $1.00
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – $22.70 : $1.00
Amy Adams – $22.60 : $1.00
Kevin James – $22.40 : $1.00

To be honest, about half of these actors are only here because they’re so closely tied to one major franchise (I’m looking at you, useless Twilight actors.) Natalie Portman is a pleasant surprise, as she really is an amazing actress, as is Amy Adams. Dwayne Johnson may not be the best actor, but the guy knows how to commit to a role and he’s supremely likeable. Everyone else? Nyeh. I’m sorry, but I saw Paul Blart: Mall Cop last week when it was on TV, and that was just terrible. It was the cinematic equivalent of accidentally pooping yourself while trying to light a fart.
