Thinking about making a bulti-billion pound blockbuster? Thought so. Well, fight all your natural instincts and don’t hire Eddie Murphy, or Katherine Heigl.
So say Forbes, kind of. Okay, you can still hire them… but DO be aware that Forbes have voted Donkey from Shrek (Eddie Murphy) Hollywood’s most overpaid actor - bringing in just $2.30 for every $1 he is paid.
And Katherine Heigl comes in a close second… despite such film classics as Knocked Up and 27 Dresses, we know right.
Katherine returns just $3.40 for every $1 she is paid, not helped by that recent box-office bomb One for the Money, which you probably haven’t heard of because it definitely didn’t bring in the money. Oh sweet almost irony.
Reese Witherspoon ($3.90 for every $1 in her pay check), Sandra Bullock ($5 for every $1), Jack Black ($5.20 for every $1 paid) Nicolas Cage, Adam Sandler, Denzel Washington, Ben Stiller and Sarah Jessica Parker don’t fare all that well either.
In fact, who did fare well Forbes? Our money’s on Ryan Gosling. But our money’s always on Ryan Gosling, mainly because we want our faces to be on Ryan Gosling too.
Yup, he’s top of heatworld’s Phwoarbes List *rubs thighs in a pervy manner* phwoarbs…
