The financial magazine only looks at the last three films in which an actor has appeared in over the last three years, up until June 1, 2013. All actors considered had to have appeared in at least three films within that time frame, which excluded a number of people who frequent the list. For each movie, they calculated the studio’s return on investment, then totaled the sum and averaged it.
Adam Sandler Tops Overpaid Actors List
Coming out on top of the list is funnyman Adam Sandler, who still manages to get paid $15 million a flick, despite the fact that his last few movies haven’t delivered. While Jack & Jill managed to haul in $150 million, the film that put Adam Sandler in drag cost $80 million to make.
