SLIDESHOW: Who's the Most Overrated Actor?

Adam Sandler (No. 1)
1 of 10

Adam Sandler (No. 1)

With movies like "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy" acting as big box office bombs, it's no surprise that Adam Sandler landed as the No. 1 Most Overpaid Actor on Forbes' list.

    Adam Sandler (No. 1)

    With movies like "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy" acting as big box office bombs, it's no surprise that Adam Sandler landed as the No. 1 Most Overpaid Actor on Forbes' list.

  2. Katherine Heigl (No. 2)

    Katherine Heigl (No. 2)

    A few years ago, Katherine Heigl was being tapped as Hollywood's next big rom-com star. Now, not so much.

  3. Reese Witherspoon (No. 3)

    Reese Witherspoon (No. 3)

    Reese Witherspoon is another famous face we're kind of surprised to see on the list. She was huge in movies like "Legally Blonde," but is more recently starring in much smaller films like "Mud."

  4. Nicolas Cage (No. 4)

    Nicolas Cage (No. 4)

    Nicolas Cage was ranked as the 4th most overpaid actor in the Forbes list, returning $6 for every $1 paid.

  5. Kevin James (No. 5)

    Kevin James (No. 5)

    Kevin James actually landed on Forbes' "Best Actors for the Buck" list last year, but his recent film "Here Comes The Boom" knocked him back down to the "Overpaid" list.

  6. Denzel Washington (No. 6)

    Denzel Washington (No. 6)

    Say it ain't so, Denzel! Denzel Washington is one of Hollywood's biggest stars, which means he can demand a huge paycheck upfront. But sometimes, his films don't always do that great at the box office.

  7. Steve Carell (No. 7)

    Steve Carell (No. 7)

    Steve Carell has starred in hits like "40-Year-Old Virgin," but he made a major misstep by starring in the big box office bomb "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone."

  8. Jennifer Aniston (No. 8)

    Jennifer Aniston (No. 8)

    What would Rachel from "Friends" think?! Jennifer Aniston made it to No. 8 on Forbes' "Most Overpaid Actors" list. We guess her movie "Wanderlust" wasn't very wander-ful.

  9. Matt Damon (No. 9)

    Matt Damon (No. 9)

    Matt Damon has starred in hits like "Good Will Hunting" and "Bourne Identity," but his latest films just haven't seemed to hit the spot.

  10. Ryan Reynolds

    Ryan Reynolds

    Ryan Reynolds may look good, but his movies have been looking bad for the last couple of years...

Rachel from "Friends" would be so ashamed. Jennifer Aniston may be an A-list actress, but that doesn't mean her movies make all that much money. In fact, the TV-actress-turned-movie-star has landed on Forbes' "Most Overpaid Actors" list.

Forbes named the top 10 stars in its "Most Overpaid Actors" list by looking at the last three movies each actor or actress starred in within the last three years and calculating the average return on investment with pay, film budgets and other expenses. In other words, how much it cost to cast the celebrity versus how much the film actually made in revenue.

The fact that Aniston made the list is pretty surprising, but there are also some other "overpaid" actors we weren't expecting to see in the Forbes tally. A-list actors like Matt Damon and Denzel Washington also landed on the list.

But then again, these guys didn't lead the list. That title goes to Adam Sandler, who was tallied as the No. 1 most overpaid actor, according to Forbes. It's not too much of a surprise, with movies like "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy" acting as big box office bombs.

So with names spanning from Denzel Washington to Jennifer Aniston to Adam Sandler, we want to know which actor you would cast your vote for as the most overpaid star of them all. Who's the most overrated actor?

    But then again, when it comes to their pay, there's always been a huge gap between men and women and, quite frankly, Aniston isn't getting enough.

    pay huge gap women frankly aniston

    Overpaid? My arse. At least Aniston can act, and yet Sandler, who more often than not just has boatloads of humor-killing fun on his roles, makes more.

    Tell me again, Forbes, who are the ones "overpaid"??

    Adam Sandler is overpaid but definitely not overrated, as everywhere I seem to go he's berated for his over the top and juvenile humor style. Everyone knows he's not funny.

    I'd say Sandler was most overrated on this list, but Jennifer Lawrence SERIOUSLY needs to be on here. She has literally two modes, and they are "emotionless" and "ugly shouting." That doesn't make you a good actor.

    Sorry Adam, I had to pick one. It's a shame the ones I feel are most overrated, and definitely over paid, are not listed. On my list are George Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon, Oprah, Bill Mahar, David Letterman, just to name a few.

    She plays every role exactly the same. Someone should take a scene and line from every movie and piece it together I think it would be hard to tell the roles apart. Could be a movie unto itelf.

    I was really ticked at his role in "The Hurricane" where it was presented that Carter's fight with Joey Giardello was fixed. Even Carter said it wasn't true and Joey got 1M and a cheapass disclaimer. Denzel was silent throughout and I thought he was better than that. Joey had 135 professional fights and anybody who fought him knew he came to go to war. He never ducked anybody and he lost on some very questionable decisions. He died last year and he died with class.

    I never saw a movie with Kevin James which I was happy about spending my money on the experience. Actually, I'm kind of surprised that Denzel Washington is even on this list because since the list is based upon return on investment, I would have thought his box office draw numbers would have been pretty high for the movies that he has done.

    The real answer is ALL of them. Adam Sandler hasn't been funny since Big Daddy in 1999, EVERY Katherine Heigl film sucks, Kevin James aint funny either, Steve Carell is a two hit wonder, Reese Witherspoon shouldn't even have the job, Ryan reynolds keeps getting crappy roles, and Denzel Washington is a one-trick pony. Matt Damon is just boring to watch, Nicolas Cage is a meme always was a meme, and Jennifer Aniston is box office poison (like Katherine Heigl).

    Denzel is probably more talented than all on this list.
    BUT TOM CRUISE NEEDS TO BE IN HERE.
    So. Overrated.
