Will Ferrell ‘Most Overpaid Star’

According to Forbes…

Will Ferrell is Hollywood’s most overpaid star- according to Forbes Magazine.
 
The comic actor apparently returns the least takings at the box-office in comparison to his fee.
 
It’s claimed that for every dollar paid to Ferrell his movies made $3.29 in cinemas.
 
The star’s inauspicious honour stems from flops including Land Of The Lost and Semi-Pro.
Coming second was Britain’s own Ewan McGregor who apparently brought in $3.75 for each dollar he earned.
 
Also included in the list were Eddie Murphy, Tom Cruise and Billy Bob Thornton.
