Forbes: Sandler Most Overpaid

Looks like the editors of Forbes weren’t big Jack & Jill fans. (But then again, who was?) The magazine named Adam Sandler the most overpaid actor of 2013, followed closely by Katherine Heigl and Reese Witherspoon. Forbes called out Sandler’s recent string of box-office bombs, such as Jack & Jill and That’s My Boy, which helped contribute to Sandler making studios an average of just $3.40 per ticket. Yikes. The list included films from the past three years to this past June 1, and calculated a return on investment number for each star and then averaged those numbers to get the overall return. Heigl closely followed Sandler, with an average return of $3.50, followed by Witherspoon, who brought home a surprising $3.90 per ticket. At least they have their millions to make them feel better.
