Depp tops overpaid actors’ list

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp has topped the Forbes’ Most Overpaid Actors list, courtesy the box office failure of his films like Mortdecai, Transcendence and The Lone Ranger.

According to the magazine, Depp, 52, only returned $1.20 for every $1 he was paid. The Black Mass star replaced last year’s most overpaid movie actor Adam Sandler to top the list.

Hollywood actor Denzel Washington is on the second position, who returned just

$6.50 for each $1 he was paid. However, Washington’s ranking is possibly due to an “inflated pay cheque” as none of his last three films appear to have lost money.

The top five also include Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson and Will Smith. Ferell’s most recent films returned only around $6.8 for every dollar the actor was paid.

For Neeson and Smith the amount was $ 6.50 per $ 8.6 respectively.
