They earn a bucketload but which celeb isn’t delivering box office dollars? Find out who needs to lift their game now!

Will Ferrell has topped a list of the Most Overpaid Stars.

The ‘Elf’ actor and comedian topped the annual list by Forbes magazine,
which calculated how much moviemakers earn per dollar paid to their lead

After the last couple of funnyman Will’s films – ‘Semi-Pro’ and ‘Land of the Lost’ – bombed at the box office, his rate of return has dropped to $3.29 for every dollar of Will’s fee.

This contrasts greatly with the other end of the scale, which saw Shia
LaBeouf named as the Best Actor for the Buck in August, earning studios an
average of $160 for every dollar he was paid.

Forbes magazine’s top ten Most Overpaid Stars:

1. Will Ferrell

2. Ewan McGregor

3. Billy Bob Thornton

4. Eddie Murphy

5. Ice Cube

6. Tom Cruise

7. Drew Barrymore

8. Leonardo DiCaprio

9. Samuel L. Jackson

10. Jim Carrey
