Sandler tops list of 'overpaid actors'

NEW YORK (AP) - Adam Sandler tops the Forbes list of most overpaid actors.

Forbes came up with a formula showing what studios get for their investments when they pay actors millions of dollars in salary.

Under the formula, for every dollar Sandler was paid for his last three movies, the films returned an average of $3.40.

Katherine Heigl doesn't do much better. She returned an average of $3.50.

In third place is Reese Witherspoon, who provides an average return of $3.90 for every dollar spent. Nicolas Cage has a return of $6.00 and Kevin James's rate of return is $6.10.

Denzel Washington, Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, Matt Damon and Ryan Reynolds round out the Top 10.
