Adam Sandler has topped the list of Forbes magazine’s most overpaid actors of the year, ahead of Katherine Heigl.
The “Grown Ups” star is paid approximately $15 million per film, but his return on profit is not worth the payout, according to magazine bosses–for every dollar the star is paid he brings in $3.40 in profit, according to statistics.
For example, “Jack & Jill” grossed $150 million but cost an estimated $80 million to make, and “That’s My Boy” had an estimated budget of $70 million and only brought in $57 million at the box office.
Coming in second is Heigl, who returns an average of $3.50 for every dollar she is paid.
Rounding out the top five are Reese Witherspoon, Nicolas Cage, and Sandler’s “Grown Ups” sidekick Kevin James.
