Scoop: Adam Sandler tops Forbes’ overpaid actor list 

Forbes just came out with a Christmas dis-list, and some big names are at the top. The “most overpaid actors” roster includes Reese Witherspoon, Katherine Heigl, Kevin James and Ryan Reynolds. Surprises on the list include Matt Damon, Jennifer Aniston and Denzel Washington.

In order to make the list, stars’ salaries were compared to their box-office draw. “We used data gathered … to calculate how much, on average, each star’s last three films did at the box office per dollar of pay,” said Forbes.

Big shocker, Adam Sandler came in at No. 1, with only $3.40 recouped by the studio for every dollar they gave him. If only those of us in the audience could get back the 10 bucks and two hours we lost at “Jack and Jill.”
