Washington: A Forbes.com poll has revealed that Drew Barrymore and Eddie Murphy are Hollywood’s most overpaid actors.

Barrymore’s recent movies like Whip It, Everybody’s Fine and Going the Distance have generated a return of 0.40 dollars for every 1-dollar that she has been paid, according to the poll’s calculations.

Coming in second place, Eddie Murphy’s films generated only 2.70 dollars per dollar, Contactmusic said, quoting the poll’s findings.

Barrymore and Murphy aren’t the only overpaid stars on the list. Even Oscar winners like Reese Witherspoon and Denzel Washington found themselves among the top five overpaid actors.
