Eddie, the Money Man

Actor Eddie Murphy is Hollywood’s most overpaid actor, according to Forbes magazine.

The 51-year-old’s recent films Imagine That, A Thousand Words and Meet Dave were all labelled flops. According to Forbes magazine, for every $1 Murphy was paid for his last three movies, they returned an estimated average of $2.30, reports

His movie Tower Heist, which was released last year, also failed to wow audiences and earned just over double its budget of $75 million.

One of the comedian-cum-actor’s best loved roles was as wise cracking detective Axel Foley in the Beverly Hills Cop film franchise of the late 1980s and he is working on bringing him back.

Actress Katherine Heigl came second in the list of most overpaid stars. Other actors in the list include Sandra Bullock and Jack Black.
