Ranking Johnny Depp is Hollywood's most overpaid actor - Forbes

It's a fairly staggering figure, especially considering the number associated with the list's runner-up: Denzel Washington, whom Forbes says returned $6.50 for every $1 he was paid for his most recent work.

Wait, you're telling us everyone didn't love Mortdecai?

Scruffy hair chameleon Johnny Depp is 2015's most overpaid actor, Forbes writes. The money-minded magazine says that the three-time Oscar nominee's most recent wide-release movies —Mortdecai and Transcendence — earned a mere $1.20 for every dollar Depp was paid to star in said movies.

It's a fairly staggering figure, especially considering the number associated with the list's runner-up: Denzel Washington, whom Forbes says returned $6.50 for every $1 he was paid for his most recent work.

Paltry, to be sure — but not nearly as low as Depp's.

Both figures are even more stunning, though, when compared to the name atop Forbes' list ofmost valuable actors: Chris Evans, whose films apparently returned $181.80 for every dollar he was paid.

(The four names that followed Evans were all women — Mila Kunis, Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Emma Stone — which, as Forbes points out, says more about Hollywood's notorious gender wage gap than anything else.)

Sure, the comparison isn't entirely fair. Evans' most recent starring vehicles were Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron — a pair of ginormous Marvel Cinematic Universe installments that almost certainly would've earned zillions regardless of who played Captain America in them. Evans himself isn't the engine behind their success; the Marvel brand is.

Even so, it's interesting to note — as Forbes does — that the Most Overpaid list "is dominated by established male leads who charge top dollar but don't always deliver at the ticket booth." '

Remember all those thinkpieces about the end of the age of movie stars? Yeah, we're there.

But don't be too glum, Johnny: After all, there's another Pirates of the Caribbean flick coming out in 2017.

The full list of Hollywood's most overpaid actors is as follows:

1. Johnny Depp
2. Denzel Washington
3. Will Ferrell
4. Liam Neeson
5. Will Smith
6. Christian Bale
7. Channing Tatum
8. Brad Pitt
9. Ben Affleck
10. Tom Cruise

And Hollywood's best bangs-for-their-buck are:

1. Chris Evans
2. Mila Kunis
3. Scarlett Johansson
4. Gwyneth Paltrow
5. Emma Stone
6. Chris Hemsworth
7. Vin Diesel
8. Jennifer Lawrence
9. Mark Wahlberg
10. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
