This is one Forbes list that for once actors are not clambering over themselves to appear on. Yes they have just released their ‘most overpaid actors in Hollywood’ list…that’s got to be a rather large slap to anyone’s ego. Coming out on top is funny man Will Ferrel…maybe he’s not so funny after all.

Forbes calculates this statistic by comparing the return of investment for each dollar spent on an actor’s salary. In Will Ferrell’s case, for every dollar he was paid, the film got back $3.29. Below are the top ten celebs who made the list…there are some surprises and some who truly belong on the list…Ice Cube, need we say any more?

1. Will Ferrell ($3.29)
2. Ewan McGregor ($3.75)
3. Billy Bob Thornton ($4.00)
4. Eddie Murphy ($4.43)
5. Ice Cube ($4.77)
6. Tom Cruise ($7.18)
7. Drew Barrymore ($7.43)
8. Leonardo DiCaprio ($7.52)
9. Samuel L. Jackson ($8.59)
10. Jim Carrey ($8.62)
