Adam Sandler Tops Forbes' Most Overpaid Actors List (Again)

For the second year in a row, Adam Sandler has earned the unwanted honor of topping Forbes' Most Overpaid Actors in Hollywood list.

It was estimated that for Sandler's last three films, every $1 the actor was paid returned an average of $3.20 for the studio. But don't cry for Sandler. Netflix recently gave him a deal to produce four original films for the streaming service, which doesn't have to worry about box office returns. Sounds like a match made in fart joke heaven.

Though Sandler still commands a fat paycheck, most of his recent films have been Razzie fodder and box office duds. The magazine estimates that for every dollar Sandler received on his last three films, which include Jack & Jill and That's My Boy, the movies returned an average of $3.40. However, there are exceptions when Sandler's price tag pays off, as is the case with Grown Ups 2one of Sandler's best performing films, which was not counted toward this year's ranking because of its later release date.
