The blog details that many believe that Hollywood actors and actresses are highly overpaid, and now, Forbes magazine highlights who are the overpaid actors of all. And the winners are: Drew Barrymore and Eddie Murphy.
Forbes has a specific formula to figure out why these actors are the most overpaid ones. The formula involves looking at how much each star earned, how many theaters their films were release in, and how much money their films earned.
After looking at the equation, Barrymore came out to the be most overpaid actor. Her last two movies, "Everybody's Fine" and "Lucky You" only made $24 million together. While getting a cool $15 million per film, she only brings 40 cents for every $1 she makes in the film.
At number two, is famous comedy actor, Eddie Murphy, who made over $20 million for his flop, "Meet Dave." That film, along with, "Imagine That," made $72 million, but cost a whopping $115 to make. Murphy returned $2.70 for every dollar.
