Forbes lists Adam Sandler as the most overpaid actor

Sandler, 47, the star of recent comedies Jack and Jill and That’s My Boy, dethroned Eddie Murphy for the dubious distinction. Forbes estimated that Sandler’s last three films returned an average of $3.40 for every dollar he was paid.

Murphy topped last year’s list, returning an average of $2.30 at the box office for each dollar earned. Katherine Heigl, who starred in the poorly performing films Killers and One for the Money, placed slightly behind Sandler, returning an average of $3.50 per every dollar she earned.

This year’s list was cut off at 1 June, and so it excluded Sandler’s buddy comedy Grown Ups 2, which was released in July and performed well at the box office.
