Is Eddie Murphy the most overpaid actor in Hollywood working today?
Forbes says yes! They've compiled a short list of the movie stars that just aren't worth their weight in gold.
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see who else made the top five!
Of course, this is no judgment on the quality of the acting or the entertainment potential of these stars. It's purely a financial metric.
Forbes developed the list by comparing the gross of movies the actors starred in with their paychecks. According to their calculations, Eddie Murphy movies bring in only $2.30 for every dollar he is paid.
But is he really overpaid? Sure, Eddie gets millions per movie, but think of how much money you save on other actors when he plays five roles per film! They totally haven't thought this one through!

While it was reported yesterday that Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina, would be getting her own reality show, you might not want to grab your remotes just yet!
Dina recently cleared up the reality rumors, saying:
“I’m not starring in the VH1 reality show Hollywood Exes. I just did a cameo [on another show] for a friend of mine who is on the show. It’s called DramaMamas and is a very smart show. It’s about the auditioning and making of a Broadway show.”
