2016 is really shaping up to be NOT Johnny Depp's year, after he topped Forbes list of most overpaid actors in Hollywood
Don't be fooled into thinking Hollywood isn't a brutal industry. The number crunching that goes on behind the scenes is notoriously ruthless and it's easy to see why an actor can tumble from the top of the A-list down to the bottom of the rubble after just a few bad film choices. However, despite box office earnings playing an incredibly important role in Hollywood paycheques, there are a few exemptions to the rule. Case in point: Forbes' list of the 10 most overpaid actors in Hollywood, which reveal how grossly overestimated some big0name actors really are. Based on the results of each actor's last three significant films and their estimated earnings, Forbes was able to calculate which actors are chronically overpaid. Interestingly, one of 2016's highest paid actresses is also the on the list.
With Johnny Depp topping the list for the second year in a row, thanks to the bad press from his domestic violence accusations and subsequent divorce from Amber Heard, combined with the disappointing performance (by Hollywood standards) of hyped-up flicks like Alice Through the Looking Glass and Black Mass, we're guessing 2016 is going down as the year Johnny would rather forget.
