You can bank on Vince

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

It’s Fri­day. It’s Reel News. It must be time for the latest stupid list.

To be fair, Forbes mag­a­zine’s an­nual at­tempt to as­sess which stars of­fer the best value for money is al­ways fas­ci­nat­ing. Ob­serv­ing the suc­cess of the in­dif­fer­ent Han­cock, any id­iot could iden­tify Will Smith as the most bank­able star, but he also costs a very great deal. It’s ac­tu­ally Vince Vaughn who proves to be the best value in Hol­ly­wood – for ev­ery dol­lar in­vested, he brings in $14.73.

Else­where, the list is some­what com­pro­mised by the fact that ac­tors such as Ju­lia Roberts (third place) and Brad Pitt (fourth) took pay cuts to ap­pear in Ocean’s 13. More in­ter­est­ing is the in­clu­sion of Tobey Maguire at num­ber two, Naomi Watts at num­ber five and – good for her – the like­able, re­silient Jen­nifer Anis­ton in eighth place.
