Johnny Depp, Will Smith Top Forbes List Of Most Overpaid Actors
American actor Johnny Depp earned the top spot on Forbes annual Most Overpaid Actors list for the second year in a row.
Due to poor box office numbers, the Pirates of The Caribbean star is 2016’s most overpaid actor. His last three movies returned just 2.80 dollars at the box office for every one dollar he was paid on them, according to Forbes.
Alice Through the Looking Glass hit theatres in May just when a judge issued a restraining order against its star after wife Amber Heard alleged that he physically and verbally abused her.
Depending on the calculations used, which is based on the last three films each actor starred in before June 2016 excluding animated films, Will Smith came in second place by returning 5 dollars for every one dollar he was paid thanks to lower-performing movies including Focus and Concussion.
Channing Tatum came in third on the list with 6 dollars for every dollar he was paid. Even though Magic Mike XXL performed solidly with 120 million dollars in worldwide grosses on a 15 million dollars budget, his number was held down by Jupiter Ascending with worldwide grosses of 183 million dollars on a 175 million dollars budget.
Adam Sandler who topped the 2013 and 2014 Forbes overpaid actor lists was sixth.
Julia Roberts is the only woman on the list landing in ninth place.
