BEVERLY HILLS, December 24, (THEWILL) – Forbes just released their Top Ten Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors Of 2015 and leading the pack is Johnny Depp. According to the magazine, the Pirates of the Caribbean star's recent movies returned just $1.20 for every $1 he was paid on them.
Here is how they put it: “Poor Johnny Depp. As Captain Sparrow, he could do no wrong: his last four Pirates of the Caribbean movies grossed a combined $3.7 billion, making it one of the most successful franchises ever. But as Lord Charlie in Mortdecai or Dr. Will Caster inTranscendence, he failed to strike box office gold despite pocketing millions personally. Depp is this year's most overpaid actor: His recent movies returned just $1.20 for every $1 he was paid on them. That return on investment puts him just ahead of second-ranked Denzel Washington, who returned a dismal $6.50 for every $1 he earned from his recent films.”
