Adam Sandler Makes Forbes Top Ten List Of Hollywood’s Most Overpaid Actors


Adam Sandler has been named on Forbes annual list of the ten most overpaid actors in Hollywood, yet again. Sandler came in at number six.

The actor, whose movies have gone from bad to worse over the years, may just set a record for consecutive years on the list.

Forbes ranks actors by assessing the ratio of a movie’s box office take against the actor’s fee. And this does not even take into consideration all of the people who get a percentage of the movie’s gross.

Adam Sandler’s movies brought in a measly $7.60 for every dollar which he was paid. And since Sandler’s pay check in recent years has been more than $20 million, it takes a lot more for his movies to bring in a higher ratio.

Last year’s “Pixels” which cost $88 million to make brought in a lousy $78 million at the North American box office. Maybe this is why Adam Sandler signed that deal to make his new movies for streaming on Netflix. There is no box office take involved as a way to judge these movies’ successes.

For now, Adam Sandler is getting back to his roots, as they say. He has joined fellow “Saturday Night Live Alums” David Spade, Rob Schneider and Norm MacDonald on a stand up comedy tour called Here Comes The Funny Tour.
