Did you see "A Thousand Words"? Not many people did. Eddie Murphy's past three movies generated only $2.30 at the box office for every dollar of his salary, making him the most overpaid actor in Hollywood last year, according to a Forbes survey (via Statista).

Katherine Heigl came in second, bringing in only $3.40 for every dollar of her pay. Her latest crime thriller, "One For the Money," made back less than its $40-million budget at the box office worldwide.

Better luck next time? Heigl stars alongside Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton and Amanda Seyfried in the big-screen romantic comedy "The Big Wedding," in theaters later this month. Next up for Murphy: reprising his role in the 1984 classic film "Beverly Hills Cop" for a TV version.
