Johnny Depp Named 2015’s Most Overpaid Actor

Johnny Depp has been named Forbes most overpaid actor. Sometimes Depp’s movies make $3.7 billion like the Pirates of the Caribbean films. But over the course of 2015, his other films like Mordecai and Transcendence only returned $1.20 for every $1 he was paid. Depp’s films barely broke even. Or in Mordecai’s case, lost millions of dollars. Even Black Mass only made $94.5 million. Luckily Depp’s future appears a lot brighter. He’ll star in another Pirates film and in Alice Through the Looking Glass. So hopefully he won’t stay on this list too long. Other actor’s he shares this title with are Denzel Washington, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, and Will Smith.
