Johnny Depp didn’t have the best 2015 (but hey, he’s still making buttloads of money).
Forbes just released their list of most overpaid actors for 2015, whose movies just didn’t make enough to justify their huge salaries. At the top of the list is ol’ Johnny, whose 2015 films Mortdecai and Black Mass both were, uh, pretty disappointing.
Let’s put it this way: over the last couple years, Depp’s movies reportedly ended up earning only $1.20 for every $1 the actor was paid. So yeah, not much of a value attaching that dude to your project. And the other actors who made the list might surprise you!

We got Denzel Washington and many more.
The top ten actors and their rates according to box office performance are:

BTW, Forbes only took each of the actor’s three most recent films before June of this year and didn’t include animated movies, smaller budget flicks, or cameos. I know, it’s like…EVERY A lister, isn’t it?
Adam Sandler topped the list last year…do you think he’ll make an appearance on this list in 2016?
