MOST OVERPAID ACTORS: ACCOMPLISHMENT OR CURSE?
We can’t stop thinking about Forbes list of The Most Overpaid Actors in Hollywood. Specifically the actors whose films didn’t make enough money to justify their absurd salaries. Here’s the list if you haven’t seen it:
I Johnny Depp (Topped list second year in a row!)
2 Will Smith
3 Channing Tatum
4 Will Ferrell
5 George Clooney
6 Adam Sandler (We’re surprised he isn’t first every year)
7 Mark Wahlberg
8 Leonardo DiCaprio
9 Julia Roberts
10 Bradley Cooper
Our first thought is sad – only one female is on the list, emphasizing the fact that women are grossly underpaid in Hollywood.
Our second thought was: is this an EMBARRASSMENT or an ACCOMPLISHMENT for those on the list? Are the massively overpaid actors secretly thrilled at getting those huge undeserved salaries or disappointed at their boxoffice failures? It could go either way, but we’re betting they’re proud to be on the list. One thing for sure- these actors’ agents are bragging all over the office!
