First the Sony hack calling Adam Sandler out as an A**hole, and now this?
Yep. For the second year in a row, Sandler topped Forbes list of the Most Overpaid Actors in Hollywood. Which is quite a blow, especially if you see how Forbes does it: they look at the last three movies of the actor, and calculate what they were paid and what the movies earned to come up with what is essentially a return on investment number for each star.
Forbes estimated that for every $1 Sandler was paid, he returned an average of $3.20. Ranking second behind Sandler is Johnny Depp, whose past three films returned $4.10 for every $1 he was paid. Third is Ben Stiller, whose recent films returned an average of $4.80 for every $1 he’s been paid.

Aw man, so many marriages and engagements…but so many breakups, too.
The most recent being Clint Eastwood, whose divorce from ex-wife Dina is final.
According to documents filed in Monterey County Superior Court, the marriage of Clint and Dina ended yesterday, complete with property and custody agreement. TMZ reports that Clint attempted to block Dina from getting spousal support, claiming money to which she was entitled was covered by their prenup. It’s unclear if the terms of the prenup were honored in the settlement, but man, after 18 years, I think Dina should get a little more than what she came in with, don’t you?
This divorce has been a long time coming: the two separated in June 2012 and filed for divorce last December.

Jamie Dornan is a good actor…he does his research!
US weekly reports that, prior to taking on the iconic role of S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, he paid a visit to a “sex dungeon” for a sexy lil’ lesson…
“I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did…whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives,” the Once Upon a Time hunk, 32, told Elle UK for its February issue, which hits stands on Jan. 2.
“I was like: ‘Come on, guys, I know I’m not paying for this, but I am expecting a show,'” he quipped to the mag. “It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards…I had a long shower before touching either of them.”
But that wasn’t the only prep the hunky actor did. The Guardian earlier this year reported that Dornan became quite adept at working with his hands.
“There are a couple of classic knots I know now, and I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently,” he said in April. “In fact, I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”
Fifty Shades of Grey co-stars Dakota Johnson and get this…is due to hit theaters on Valentine’s Day 2015. ROMANTIC!

Congratulations, Eddie Redmayne!
People reports that The Theory of Everything star, 32, tied the knot with fiancée Hannah Bagshawe on Monday at Babington House in Somerset, England! I assume that’s some very old, very beautiful castle-like place, because this whole affair sounds very…British.
Says Redmayne’s rep:
“I am happy to confirm that Hannah and Eddie married today. They celebrated with a small number of close family and friends.”
Redmayne and Bagshawe were engaged over Memorial Day weekend. A tying the knot AND a huge summer film? Not too shabby for this bloke!
