Hollywood’s least profitable
More fun with lists. Forbes magazine has just released its chart of the 10 most overpaid – or, more accurately, least profitable – stars in Hollywood.
At the top (bottom?) we find, perhaps surprisingly, the amiable Will Ferrell. The former box-office cert secures his position following the catastrophe that was Land of the Lost. Sadly, despite not even being in the top wage bracket, poor old Ewan McGregor comes in second. It seems that for every $1 the Scot is paid, his pictures earn just $3.75.
The list is completed by, in order, Billy Bob Thornton, Eddie Murphy, Ice Cube, Tom Cruise (yes!), Drew Barrymore (no!), Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson and Jim Carrey.
