It’s another day, which means there’s another list from the professional list makers at Forbes and this time they’re pulling some OCCUPY HOLLYWOOD shit on millionaire movie stars.
Forbes took their highest paid actor list and compared it with the grosses for all the movies they starred in within the past 5 years. They had to star in at least 3 movies (animated movies were not counted) that opened in 500 theaters or more. They took what each of their movies made (including first year DVD sales) and added it together. Then Forbes took what the actor made for each movie and added that shit together. Then they divided those two totals. You know, I don’t even know what I just typed. That mess is like a foreign language to me. I know, you come to Dlisted for dick cheese jokes and I’m giving you math! Let’s just assume that Forbes got higher than a C in 6th grade math, unlike me, and came up with the correct numbers.
You’d think that Katherine Heigl would be #1 through #10, but that bitch isn’t even on the list. Drew Barrymore took the top loser spot and Tommy Girl took the second from the bottom (wink wink). Here’s the entire list:
1. Drew Barrymore – $0.40 on every $1
2. Eddie Murphy – $2.70 on every $1
3. Will Ferrell – $3.50 on every $1
4. Reese Witherspoon – $3.55 on every $1
5. Denzel Washington – $4.25 on every $1
6. Nicolas Cage – $4.40 on every $1
7. Adam Sandler – $5.20 on every $1
7. Vince Vaughn – $5.20 on every $1
9. Tommy Girl – $6.35 on every $1
10. Nicolas Kidman – $6.70 on every $1
If you asked my advertisers what they get for every $1 they put into Dlisted, they’d probably say hate mail and 2am e-mails from me begging them to send me their products for quality control purposes (that last part only applies to vibrator companies), so Drew Barrymore has one up on me.
Thanks to the Sir Isaac Obviouses at Forbes for letting us know that some millionaire movie stars ain’t worth shit on a shit road. But I’d much rather see a list of Hollywood’s most underpaid stars, which I’m assuming would include Betty White, everybody in Showgirls, the “I’ve Got No Legs” dude from Kids and Donna Wilkes from the Angel movies.
