Who is 2015’s ‘Most Overpaid Actor’?

Actor Johnny Depp has been crowned this year's Most Overpaid Actor, according to Forbes magazine's ranking, released on Monday.
The list of Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors is "dominated by established male leads who charge top dollar but don't always deliver at the ticketbooth," and the publication revealed the Depp's recent movies returned just US$1.20 for every US$1 he was paid on them.
The methodology includes the last three films each actor starred in before June 2015, save animated films, movies where the actor appeared in an insignificant role, or movies that were released on fewer than 2,000 screens. This excludes the star's highly-anticipated return to the screen as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in the biopic "Black Mass."
Despite this, the "Pirates of The Caribbean" lead managed to beat out blockbuster star Denzel Washington ranked second for reportedly bringing in US$6.50 for every US$1 he earned from his recent films.
