Superstar Johnny Depp has topped the Forbes’ Most Overpaid Actors list, courtesy the box office failure of his films like “Mortdecai”, “Transcendence” and “The Lone Ranger”.

According to the magazine, Depp, 52, only returned USD 1.20 for every USD 1 he was paid.

The “Black Mass” star replaced last year’s most overpaid movie actor Adam Sandler to top the list.

Actor Denzel Washington is on the second position, who returned just USD 6.50 for each USD 1 he was paid.

However, Washington’s ranking is possibly due to an “inflated paycheque” as none of his last three films appear to have lost money.

The top five also include Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson and Will Smith.

Ferell’s most recent films returned only around USD 6.8 for every dollar the actor was paid.

For Neeson and Smith the amount was USD 6.50 per USD 8.6 respectively.
