Forbes.com has revealed its annual top 10 list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood, and it's not much of a shock to see Eddie Murphy - riding low following a string of box office flops - sitting in the #1 spot on Forbes' list. Murphy has big name company on the annual list of the lowest box office bang for a studio's buck, with Katherine Heigl nabbing the #2 spot and Reese Witherspoon coming in third.
According to Forbes.com, Murphy earned the (dis)honor of being the most overpaid by returning $2.30 for every dollar he was paid. That figure's based on his last three films, and given how horribly they performed in theaters you'd expect that return on investment figure to be much, much lower.
Forbes also changed up how they calculate who is the most overpaid by moving away from considering the last five years of films to just taking into account the last three years. That dropped Drew Barrymore from the list because she hasn't headlined three movies in the last three years.
