Depp tops world’s most overpaid actor list for second time

Friday, December 09, 2016

Johnny Depp has topped the list of most overpaid Hollywood stars of 2016 by Forbes.

The top five list has names like Will Smith, Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell and George Clooney.

Depp, who was involved in an ugly divorce settlement with ex-wife Amber Heard accusing him of physical violence, suffered big ticket disappointments such as 'Alice in Wonderland' sequel and 'Black Mass' to top the list.

His last three movies returned just USD 2.80 at the box office for every USD 1 he was paid on them, according to the magazine. Smith, who ranks second, has had a similarly fate at the box office. He returned a dismal USD 5 at the ticket booth for every USD 1 he earned from his recent films. Both 'Concussion' and 'Focus' translated into poor returns.

Tatum ended up third on the list despite the success of 'Magic Mike XXL' as he returned just USD 6 at the box office for every USD 1 paid to him because his three movie average was impacted by the dismal performance of 'Jupiter Ascending'.

The actor is closely followed by Ferrell, who returned USD 6.50 at the ticket booth for every USD 1 he earned. Clooney is the fifth member on the list. The actor's hold at the box office has lessened over the years. He returned USD 6.70 for every USD 1. 'Hail, Caesar!' was loved by the critics but fared modestly at the box office and 'Money Monster' was also a decent performer but Clooney's average was impacted by 'Tomorrowland', which barely grossed more than its USD 190 million budget. Adam Sandler was the sixth, with USD 7.6 for every USD 1 while Mark Wahlberg was seventh with USD 9.2 for every dollar.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You could be running behind schedule in a certain assignment. In your anxiety to get things done in a hurry you could end up over looking some important details. Your plans to make up for lost time at home could also run into some rough weather because of the attitude of a family member. Try not to be overly sensitive with loved ones but look on the positive side of all that you have. Perhaps you are taking a lot for granted.
