this might be a stupid question...but then can we consider this another way of saying some of these actors are underpaid?

Im pleasantly surprised that shia labeouf doesn't make more money. all his starring roles have been pretty good.

Kind of especially the bigger names in the list. Yea Labeouf might start upping his price soon.

Michael Cera is shutting it down....people say he's a talented actor but it seems like he plays the same type of character in each movie....kinda like Will Smith.


Can't wait for the Arrested Development movie...too bad Maeby fell off though...

looking at the other thread with the worst actors bang for there buck i can see why this is true. They're not talkin about the actors skills or even their salaries directly. They're talkin about their salaries comparied to the gross of their movies. These guys probably get good payouts, but there movies make money. Therefore the ratio looks different.

The guys on the other list get paid the same amount or maybe a little more, but the movies they put out are garbage and dont gross. This guys are puttin out quality. And making studios money, but trust they still getting paid.

Javier Bardem, RDJ, and Aaron Eckhart f**king own.

Funny, I saw this same list about 18 months back and it was like this: Adam Sandler, Will Smith, Matt Damon - I don't think any of the dudes from that list are on this one.

Say what you want about Adam Sandler, but people will go see anything he's in. His movies always k!ll @ the box office.
