Forbes has released its annual list of Hollywood's most overpaid actors. Topping the list is Eddie Murphy.
Murphy's career seemed headed for a rebound with a 2007 best supporting actor Oscar nomination for "Dreamgirls" and an announcement that he would host the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony. But he dropped out of the hosting gig after producer Brett Ratner left, and his three most recent films have disappointed at the box office.
If you take out Murphy's voice role in the latest "Shrek" movie, "Shrek Forever After," the worldwide gross of Murphy's last three live-action films -- "Imagine That," "Tower Heist" and "A Thousand Words" -- is a combined domestic box office total of $196.3 million.
Compare that performance to his early '80s run of the hits "48 Hrs.," "Trading Places" and "Beverly Hills Cop," which collectively hauled in $316.3 million. And that was decades ago when movie tickets cost way less than $10 each!
