Here are the 10 most overpaid actors in Hollywood, at least within the past three calendar years with June 1 as the beginning and end dates. Their salaries are way more than their box office pull justifies. Overpaid? Oh yes. Undeserved? If you're going by the old Hollywood mantra, "What have you done for me lately?" then sure. The actors on this list shouldn't be all that surprising, especially considering the big names on this list haven't had any hits in recent memories. The best examples of this are Adam Sandler, Katherine Heigl and Nicolas Cage.
