Forbes has compiled a list of the 10 Most Overpaid Stars and Will Ferrell comes in at No. 1. Ewan McGregor is a close No. 2.

The magazine says to create the list, “we looked at the 100 biggest stars in Hollywood. To qualify, each actor had to have starred over the last five years in at least three movies that opened in more than 500 theaters. We then calculated a return-on-investment number for each star by dividing total operating income on the three films by the star’s total compensation, including up-front salaries and earnings from DVD and TV sales.”

The list:

1. Will Ferrell
2. Ewan McGregor
3. Billy Bob Thornton
4. Eddie Murphy
5. Ice Cube
6. Tom Cruise
7. Drew Barrymore
8. Leonardo DiCaprio
9. Samuel L. Jackson
10. Jim Carrey

Very interesting. Most of the people on the list are actors I could care less about. So it all makes sense to me.
