Ice Cube Lands on Forbes’ “Most Overpaid Actors” List

Forbes magazine has included Ice Cube in their list of “Hollywood’s 10 Most Overpaid Stars.”

The dwindling box office sales of Cube’s movies over the last several years earned him a spot at no. 5 on the list, behind such big screen names as Will Ferrell, Ewan McGregor, Billy Bob Thornton and Eddie Murphy. According to the financial tome, for every dollar that the West Coast rap legend turned actor was paid, his films only make $4.77.

To qualify for the list every actor had to star in at least three movies over the last five years and each flick had to open in 500 theaters or more nationwide. Forbes then took into account the person’s total compensation for their last three roles and divided it by the movies’ total operating income to determine each individual’s return-on-investment figure. —Max G
