Johnny Depp And The 9 Other Most Overpaid Actors Of 2016 According To Forbes

When it comes to actors who have had themselves a mixed 2016, there may not be a more prominent example than Johnny Depp. Sure, he just landed one of the lead roles in the follow-up to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but he also got divorced from his wife Amber Heard after there were allegations that he abused her.

One other moment that Depp probably isn't going to hold too fondly from this year: How about the announcement from Forbes that he was the most overpaid actor in Hollywood for the 2nd straight year.

Forbes compiles the list by looking at the last 3 films that the actor was in prior to June 2016, excluding animated movies, insignificant roles or smaller budget projects, and compares the overall production budget from what the film allegedly earned as reported by Box Office Mojo. They then divided that information by what the celebrity allegedly got paid to appear in them.

Depp isn't the only overpaid actor in Hollywood though, so we've also included the other 9 actors that comprised the list and outline both how much their movies made in relation to the actors and what some of their bigger reasons were for them landing on the list.

So without further ado, here are the 10 actors that these production companies definitely shouldn't want showing up on set.

10. Bradley Cooper

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $12.10 for every $1 paid to Cooper.

Biggest bombs: Aloha did not earn its $37 million budget, and Joy grossed $101 million, but cost $60 million to make.

9. Julia Roberts

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $10.80 for every $1 paid to Roberts.

Biggest movies from the past year: Money Monster and Mother's Day. 

8. Leonardo DiCaprio

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $9.90 for every $1 paid.

His biggest reason for landing on this list was his large actor paycheques, including making $29 million between June 2014 and June 2015.

7. Mark Wahlberg

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $9.20 for every $1 paid.

While Wahlberg found success with Daddy's Home earning $240 million on a $69 million budget, The Gambler only beat its budget by roughly $10 million which was enough to lander Wahlberg on this list.

6. Adam Sandler

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $7.60 for every $1 paid.

We are sure Sandler is just ecstatic that all of his movies are now going through Netflix, a deal that paid him a reported $240 million.

5. George Clooney

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $6.70 for every $1 paid.

Clooney's biggest disappointment came in Tomorrowland, but Money Monster which also helped land Roberts on our list, also hurt Clooney.

4. Will Ferrell

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $6.50 for every $1 paid.

Last year Ferrell came in at 3rd, so maybe he's just happy he's moving back down the list. Ferrell's biggest bomb came in the form of the unneeded sequel, Zoolander 2. 

3. Channing Tatum

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $6 for every $1 paid.

While Will Ferrell is moving back, Tatum skyrocketed up on the list from his spot of 7th last year. While he looks good taking his shirt off in Magic Mike XXL, people were less enthused with Jupiter Ascending.

2. Will Smith

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $5 for every $1 paid.

There was plenty of buzz around Smith's movie Concussion that looked at the issue of concussions in the NFL. Sadly for Smith, that buzz didn't turn into box office numbers. Smith was 5th on Forbes list the previous year.

1. Johnny Depp

Box Office Numbers: Movie earns $2.80 for every $1 paid. I don't know if you've been noticing the small dips in movie money earned throughout the list, and then we get to Depp who is a whopping $2.20 behind Smith! Depp's biggest knock according to Forbes came with Alice Through the Looking Glass. 

You can imagine Depp gets a hefty cheque every time he appears in a film, but we wouldn't be shocked if the success of the Fantastic Beasts franchise helps make this the last year for Depp to take the top spot.
