Eddie Murphy has been named the most over-paid actor in Hollywood



Eddie Murphy has been named the most over-paid actor in Hollywood

The 51-year-old actor – whose recent films ‘Imagine That‘, ‘A Thousand Words’ and ‘Meet Dave’ were all labelled flops – is reportedly no longer popular at the box office despite being paid a huge amount of money to star in huge number of movies.

According to Youthgossip.com , for every $1 Eddie was paid for his last three movies, they returned an estimated average of $2.30.

His movie ‘Tower Heist’ which was released last year also failed to wow audiences and earned just over double its budget of $75 million.

Earlier this year, Eddie revealed he is in talks to make a ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ TV show.

One of the comedian and actor’s best loved roles was as wise cracking detective Axel Foley in the three action/comedy films of the late 80s and he’s working on bringing him back.

He said: ‘What I’m trying to do with ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit.

‘I’d do the pilot, show up here and there.’

According to the Youthgossip.com, a movie has to earn twice its production budget in ticket sales, plus the millions spent on marketing, to be considered a financial success.

Katherine Heigl came second in the list of most overpaid stars as her most recent film ‘One For The Money’ earned just $37 million and cost $40 million to make.

Reese Witherspoon – who recently gave birth to her third child – also failed to lure audiences to the cinema this year.

Other surprising actors on the list include Sandra Bullock and Jack Black.
