Hol­ly­wood’s least prof­itable

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

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.
