Johnny Depp Named 2015’s “Most Overpaid Actor”
While making a Forbes' list can be quite prestigious, Johnny Depp probably won't like topping this list.
The 52-year-old was named 2015's "Most Overpaid Actor" by the mag, based on the performance of his movies over the past year. To compile its list, Forbes looked at last three films each actor starred in a before June 2015. In Depp's case, that would include Mortdecai and 2014's Transcendence -- both of which were box office duds.
Mortdecai grossed $47 million on a $60 million budget, while Transcendence barely made back its $100 million production costs at the ticketing booth. Still, Depp pocketed millions personally, coming out to a return of $1.20 for every dollar he was paid.
Behind him was Denzel Washington, returning $6.50 for every $1 paid; and Will Ferrell was third with $6.80 for every $1.
