To compile our rundown of Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Actors, we use earnings estimates from our Celebrity 100 list. We look at the last three films each actor starred in before June 2015 (the end of our Celebrity 100 scoring period). We don’t include animated films, movies where the actor appears in a very small role, or movies that were released on fewer than 2,000 screens. We then deduct the estimated production budget from the global box office for each film (using numbers from Box Office Mojo and other sources) to come up with a limited definition of each movie’s operating income. We add together the estimated total compensation for each star on the three movies and the operating income from each movie and then divide to come up with the final return on investment number.

1. Johnny Depp
2. Denzel Washington
3. Will Ferrell
4. Liam Neeson
5. Will Smith
6. Christian Bale
7. Channing Tatum
8. Brad Pitt
9. Ben Affleck
10. Tom Cruise

 

 

By now you all know the deal. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, Queencitybeerleague dot com is a safe space. We’re in the trust tree with the nest, so if you want to say things like “Johnny Depp sucks” or “Liam Neeson is a one trick pony” feel free to let it out and no one here will judge you for it (that’s probably not true, but at least I won’t judge you for it as long as your opinions align with mine). You go out in public and say things like that and people will clown you worse than they did at the lunch table in middle school. People love their overpaid, overhyped movie stars. In fact, there’s three things that Americans love more than anything else in the entire world. 1.) Awful chain restaurants (ie. Applebee’s, BW3’s), 2.) free T-shirts, and 3.) Washed up movie stars. Why? I don’t know, but you’re more likely to get a warmer reception by saying Sandy Hook was an inside job than if you came out and slandered a guy like Denzel Washington publicly. Look, I’m not here to take shots. I’m a big fan of most of the guys on this list. Like Denzel as Officer Alonzo Harris in Training Day is probably my favorite character in American cinematic history, but here in 2015 it’s time to face facts. Denzel has been playing the same exact character in every single movie he’s been in since Man On Fire. Same goes for Neeson who only plays the tough guy former agent roles which landed him roughly 3.5 billion dollars from those Taken movies. There’s nothing wrong with that either. If I was those dudes I’d just be going through the motions and collecting a check aka the same exact thing as just about everyone on this list.

Oh and one more thing. I’m giving you the trust tree rights to slander anyone on this list, anytime, anywhere, except for Tom Cruise. I know it’s entertaining and popular opinion to not like Tom Cruise cause he’s short and he’s the Scientology weirdo that lost his mind on the Oprah Winfrey show, but let’s cut the shit. Tom Cruise is a God damn cinematic legend. The guy’s body of work is downright unreal. Top Gun, Risky Business, Rain Man, Born On the Fourth Of July, Cocktail, Jerry McGuire, Minority Report, the Mission Impossible Movies. The list goes on and on and on. I dare you to watch all those movies and tell me you’re not a Tom Cruise fan just because he’s a fucking Hollywood weirdo. That’s the great thing about entertainment. Just because you don’t like someone personally doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy their work. For example, Chris Brown turned Rihanna’s face into a human heavy bag and he’s had a hit song on the radio literally at all times for the past ten years or so. Michael Jackson lived an entire life around luring small children to his secluded ranch in an effort to sleep with them and he’s widely regarded as one of the greatest entertainers of all time. So don’t sit here and tell me you’re not a Tom Cruise fan just because he was the big swinging dick of a completely made up religion for a few years. Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit. If you’re not team Tom Cruise, look me up and we’ll fight.
