List Rules Vote on this list with who you think should be considered the most overpaid at the top

A list of the most overpaid actors of 2013. Recently, Forbes Magazine published a study that took the last three years, beginning and ending on June 1, and calculated which actor is the least profitable for his or her movie studio. There are some big stars on this unwanted list. This list isn't one you want to be on if you're an actor. It means that you're on the back-9 of your career and that your star isn't what it once it was. There shouldn't be any surprises on this list since the actors and actresses are generally (keyword: generally) the butt of jokes. Like, for example, when was the last time Adam Sandler last had a 'big' hit? Sorry, but Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2 doesn't count. He is at the top of this list, making a paltry $3.40 per dollar spent by his movie studio. That folks, isn't a sum to write home about. So what other actors are on this list? The dishonorably mentioned are Kevin James, Katherine Heigl, Nicolas Cage and surprisingly, Matt Damon and Denzel Washington. Remember though, this list only takes the past three years into consideration, so if an actor or actresses hasn't had a hit in that time, well, then there's good reason why they're on here.

Are these actors overpaid? When you judge their recent body of work, let's put it this way, these films are anything to write home about. But judging by these numbers, it would be understandable if movie studios decided to start shying away from these actors. This could spell trouble for these actors and actresses fading careers unless they have a blockbuster film pronto.

This is the list the of the most overpaid actors of 2013. Vote or rerank this list according to who you think should earn the title of the most overpaid actor in Hollywood today.
