Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston Among Forbes' Most Overpaid Actors 2013

December 10, 2013, 2:06 am GMT

The 'Jack and Jill' actor is ranked first, while the 'We're the Millers' actress is lucky enough to sit outside the top 5 at the eighth place.



Ten high-paid Hollywood actors who failed to make box office gold are listed by Forbes which makes the assessment based on the stars' last three projects over the past three years up to June 1 excluding animated movies. Adam Sandler tops the list and Jennifer Aniston sits at the eighth position.

Sandler who gets a reported $15 million paycheck per movie is considered the most overpaid actor. While "Grown Ups 2" did well with $246M gross against a budget of $80M, his other films "Jack and Jill" and "That's My Boy" were the opposite. He is estimated to return only $3.40 for every $1 paid.

Katherine Heigl follows at the second spot with an average $3.50 return for every dollar she was paid. Reese Witherspoon rounds up the top 3 by delivering around $3.90 for each dollar paid. Nicolas Cage and Kevin James occupy the fourth and fifth places respectively.

Outside the top 5, Jennifer Aniston sits at No. 8 behind Denzel Washington and Steve Carell. The actress who is reported to earn $5 million per film is estimated to pay back around $10.60 for every dollar she was paid. Her biggest offender was "Wanderlust" which could only rake in $22M.

She was saved from taking higher place on the not-so-coveted list by "Horrible Bosses" which earned $210 million at the global box office. And if her most recent comedy "We're the Millers" released August this year was counted, she would have done better since the movie garnered $269 million.
