LOS ANGELES: Vince Vaughn is the best star for the buck, says Forbes magazine.
Vaughn raked in $14.73 of gross income for studios for every dollar he was paid for The Break-up, Wedding Crashers and Dodgeball, the magazine calculated for its special entertainment issue.
â€œThatâ€™s because until recently his salary was relatively low, and the films he was in had modest budgets yet did extremely well at the box office,â€ Forbes said.
Forbes said it compiled the Ultimate Star Payback list by looking at the starsâ€™ last three films that opened wide in at least 1,000 theatres before 2008 and were made in the last five years.
Tobey Maguire ranked 2 with a gross income return of $13.44 for Spider-Man sequels and Seabiscuit. Julia Roberts was in third place ($13.19). Brad Pitt ranked fourth with $12.73, followed by Naomi Watts and Matt Damon ($12.16 each), George Clooney ($11.56), Jennifer Aniston ($10.48), Hugh Jackman ($9.90) and Ben Stiller ($9.50).
