Forbes Names Most Valuable and Overrated Movie Stars

Image Forbes magazine has published an annual list of the best and worst actors in Hollywood in terms of value for money.

Experts from a reputable publication take into account the last three projects in the career of actors, with the exception of animated films and films, which were released on less than two thousand screens. Analysts then calculate how much money the studios were able to recover from each dollar spent on their salaries.

Johnny Depp is at the top of the list of the most overrated movie stars. Over the past couple of years, the actor's career has had such deafening box office flops as "The Lone Ranger" and "Supremacy", and this year the comedy "Mordecai" crashed in the box office. Three recent films featuring Depp have allowed Hollywood majors to return only $ 1.2 for every dollar paid to him.


In second place in the ranking is Denzel Washington, whose high financial needs could not meet the expectations of the Hollywood bosses. The latter were able to recapture only $ 6.5 from every dollar paid to the actor.


Will Ferrell took the third step of the podium. The comedian's last three projects have brought in only $ 6.8 from every dollar spent on his salary.


Liam Neeson, Will Smith, Christian Bale, Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck and Tom Cruise are also among the top ten most overrated actors by Forbes .

In recent months, the issue of gender equality has become more acute in Hollywood than ever. The fair sex still earn less than men, but the financial results of 2015 prove that changes are ripe in the world of big cinema. The top ten stars in terms of price / quality ratio included five women at once, while only men were on the list of the worst.

In the first place in the top of the most valuable movie stars is Chris Evans . Thanks to participation in the MCU Marvel and a fee, ridiculous by the standards of Robert Downey Jr., the last three projects of Evans have returned almost $ 182 from every dollar paid to him.


Despite the box office failure of the blockbuster Jupiter Ascending, Mila Kunis took the second place in the ranking. She returns to the financial assets of projects for $ 87.3 from each paid to her.


Scarlett Johansson took third place in the ranking, bringing the studios $ 84.9 from every dollar of her salary.


The Top 10 Most Valuable Actors by Forbes also include Gwyneth Paltrow, Emma Stone, Chris Hemsworth, Vin Diesel, Jennifer Lawrence, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
