According to Forbes, these are the worst values in Hollywood. Fans of sports are familiar with judging players based off performance and paychecks, so it's pretty fun to give the movie business the same look. The dollar amounts you'll see next to each name is how much cash each of their last three movies grossed at the box office for each dollar the star was given. It also excludes animated voice performances---this is purely based off live action stuff.
