Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Forbes Overpaid Hollywood Stars of 2009: Will Ferrell, No Longer Worth The Ching?


Who is on the Forbes list of overpaid Hollywood Stars of 2009?

Well, there are tons of celebrities out there that may complain that they don’t make enough money. But, believe me there are those celebrities that make a little bit too much than they should! I can think of a few off the top of my head (*cough* Scientol-Tom* cough). Well, Forbes has released their annual list of overpaid Hollywood film stars for 2009. Can you guess who is on the list?

So just how does Forbes determine who are Hollywood’s overpaid stars of 2009?

Forbes.com apparently examines this shiznit with fierceness, with intensity and serious number crunching. Or not so much. But it IS interesting to know who is getting paid more ching than they are worth! What Forbes does is take a little looksy at actors’ estimated salaries on their films, including both DVD and television sales, and then they compare them to the revenues grossed by those films. Simple, right?

Remember that little movie “Land of the Lost”? Yeah the one that Will Ferrell “starred” in (and it totally sucked)? Well, it cost $100 million to make and only made $65 million. That flopper of a flick help make Ferrell the biggest overpaid Hollywood star this year. As a result Ferrell earned just an average of $3.29 for every dollar he was paid. So who else made the list? Check it out below.

And here’s the Top 10 Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Stars according to Forbes:

1. Will Ferrell
2. Ewan McGregor
3. Billy Bob Thornton
4. Eddie Murphy
5. Ice Cube
6. Tom Cruise
7. Drew Barrymore
8. Leonardo DiCaprio
9. Samuel L. Jackson
10. Jim Carrey
