Among the most highly paid Hollywood actresses, Drew Barrymore topped the Forbes list after returning 40 cents for every $1 of investment in her talents. Barrymore's recent films titled Everybody's Fine and 2007's Lucky You have been blockbusters.
Though Drew Barrymore's recently produced He's Just Not Into You fetched $180 million globally, it could not be counted in the Forbes list as she was not the star of the film.
Eddie Murphy came second on the list of the most highly paid stars in Hollywood. However, he is the first when it comes to male actors in Hollywood. Eddie Murphy came second after Barrymore by returning $2.70 for every $1.
The Forbes list of the most overpaid actors was created by looking at the 40 highest-earning actors in Hollywood.
