And Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor is...

ADAM Sandler has been named Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor for the second year running by Forbes. 

Forbes compiles the list based on the last three movies the actor has filmed and calculates what they were paid compared to what the movies earned. The final number is basically the 'return on investment' of each star.  

Forbes estimates for every $1 Sandler was paid, he returned an average of $3.20.

Johnny Depp was listed as second, whose past three films returned $4.10 for every $1 he was paid.   

Ben Stiller came in third, Ryan Reynolds fourth and Tom Hanks Fifth.   

Surprisingly, the only Female in the list was Sandra Bullock in ninth place, returning $9 for every $1 paid.   

Forbes says Bullock is not actually overaid by Hollywood standards but is on the list purely from backend payments of movies the Blind Side and Gravity.
