    Default Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors of 2011

    Cashing In





    Forbes Magazine recently calculated the most overpaid actors of 2011. They did so by dividing the total operating income of the star's last three films by the his or her total compensation to come up with a return-on-investment number. The final number represents an average of how much a studio earns for every dollar paid. So who is a bad investment?

    1. Drew Barrymore
    Ouch, Drew Barrymore isn't even giving you half of your investment in return. For every dollar she gets paid, the studio takes home just 40 cents. Barrymore isn't even one of Hollywood's highest paid actors, which means her most recent films have done exceptionally poorly to get her at the top of this list.

    2. Eddie Murphy
    Eddie Murphy has been struggling ever since the '80s, appearing on this list more than once. However, Murphy still turns a profit, making $2.70 for each dollar the studio pays him. Perhaps Tower Heist can up that number.

    3. Will Ferrell
    Last year, Will Ferrell topped Forbes list of overpaid actors, so we suppose being number three in 2011 is an improvement, albeit not one to be proud of necessarily. Ferrell is making you $3.50 per $1 invested.

    4. Reese Witherspoon
    Reese Witherspoon is right behind Ferrell at $3.55 per dollar paid. Her biggest offender? How Do You Know?, which took in less than half of what it cost to make. Thanks to those Robert Pattinson fans, Water for Elephants helped pull her out of the red.

    5. Denzel Washington
    Denzel Washington might surprise a lot of people showing up on this list, but the Oscar winning actor's two train movies and The Book of Eli didn't quite measure up to his '90s money-makers like Philadelphia and Crimson Tide. Denzel will get you $4.25 per dollar of his salary.

    6. Nicolas Cage
    Nicolas Cage is notorious for his lavish lifestyle and the fact that it's put him in debt. Well, his films haven't fared much better either. As Forbes points out, Cage's most recent movie, Trespass, brought in just $16,000 in its opening weekend, granted that was a limited release, but it certainly doesn't bode well.

    7. Adam Sandler

    Adam Sandler makes the list, further tying him to Eddie Murphy's career trajectory. Sandler is pulling in just over $5 for every one he's paid. Because he's paid so highly for his films, if one of them bombs even slightly, it moves him closer to #1 on this list.

    8. Vince Vaughn
    Vince Vaughn's film choices are starting to slide the further into his career he gets, and although the critically panned Couple's Retreat was successful at the box office, the equally panned Dilemma with Kevin James barely broke even. Vaughn matches Sandler at $5.20 in return investment.

    9. Tom Cruise
    Once Mission Impossible III comes out, Tom Cruise will likely fall off this list, but until then, for every dollar Cruise is paid, his films return an average $6.35. In order to truly be worth his paycheck, Cruise's films have to generate at least double their production cost.

    10. Nicole Kidman
    Funny seeing you here, Nicole Kidman, although maybe we should blame Nicolas Cage for this one. Kidman co-stars in the Cage-led Trespass, whose paltry $16,000 opening weekend did a number on both stars' return on investment. Once that one gets wiped away from Kidman's equation, she'll be fine. We're not so sure about Cage.
