It seems the good people at Forbes realized a few years back that there are far fewer billionaires reading their articles on tax shelters than there would be middle-Americans reading pseudo-mathematical lists about rich celebrities.
So they’ve up and created a list that quantifies who the most overpaid actor is. And it’s Adam Sandler. Does something qualify as news when everyone knows it to be true?
The list is predicated on an entrant’s salary vs. the profitability of their movie. However, it’s safe to say that Jack and Jill would have LOST far more money if Sandler hadn’t starred in it. But to his detriment, that means it never would have been made.
Regardless, Sandler is responsible for Jack and Jill, and thus should be at the top of many, many, many bad lists.
