Forbes dropped their list of Hollywood’s most overpaid actors and number one is … Johnny Depp. His last three movies returned just $2.80 at the box office for every $1 he was paid on them.
Will Smith is #2 and according to Forbes: He returned a dismal $5 at the ticket booths for every $1 he earned from his recent films. With Concussion, an Oscar nod evaded him and the movie barely met its $34 million production costs; Focus was a little better. Smith’s outsized paydays, coupled with box office disappointments, translate to poor returns.
Channing Tatum is #3.
Will Ferrell and George Clooney round out the top 5.
