Eddie Murphy, the most overpaid actor Forbes said: Drew Barrymore is at the top

According to a survey conducted by Forbes.com, American stand-up comedian, actor, writer, singer, director, and musician Eddie Murphy And Drew Barrymore, actress, film director, screenwriter, producer and model are the Most Overpaid Actors In Hollywood.

The report was published on Thursday November 3. The 'Shrek' star follows right behind actress Drew Barrymore who tops the list bringing in just $0.40 for every dollar she’s paid. Ouch! Eddie fares considerably better providing a $2.70 return for every buck in his pay check, but he’s still the most overpaid male on the list, with flops like 'Meet Dave' not setting the box office alight. Compared to Barrymore, “Murphy is a financial superstar,” wrote Forbes.com’s Dorothy Pomerantz who compiled the list.

Going to host next year's Oscars, Murphy has struggled in recent years, too, with bombs like “Imagine That” and “Meet Dave.” He might take solace in his promising new film “Tower Heist.” Forbes magazine compiled the list from Hollywood’s 40 top-earning actors, and based it on each star’s compensation on his or her last three films and the operating income on those films. From that, Forbes.com derived a return-on-investment.
The Top 10 are:
1. Drew Barrymore
2. Eddie Murphy
3. Will Ferrell
7. Adam Sandler
8. Vince Vaughn

Drew Barrymore the toppest
