Eddie Murphy Tops List Of Most Overpaid Actors

Eddie Murphy Tops List Of Most Overpaid Actors

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!
