Jennifer Aniston Lands On Forbes' 'Most Overpaid Actors' List Of 2013

Posted: Updated:

Jennifer Aniston might be America's Sweetheart, but that doesn't mean she's always box office gold. Her rusty performances have landed her on Forbes' "Most Overpaid Actors" list of 2013.

Forbes named the 10 "Most Overpaid Actors" by looking at the last three movies each actor or actress starred in over the last three years up until June 1, 2013. His or her average return on investment was calculated with pay, movie budgets and expenses data.

Adam Sandler topped the list, with box office bombs like "Jack & Jill" and "That's My Boy." He can command northward of $15 million per flick but delivers only $3.40 for every $1 paid. Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon landed at No. 3 on the list, returning $3.90 for every $1 paid. Aniston came in at No. 8 with a $10.60 return for every $1 paid. Forbes noted she is having more box office success with supporting roles rather than leading ones recently.

The 44-year-old star can make $5 million per comedy, The Hollywood Reporter revealed in September. And Aniston does have some certifiable hits under her belt to back it up, including "We're the Millers," "Marly & Me" and "Just Go With It."

Still, some critics have panned her big-screen clout.

"Jennifer Aniston is the most peculiar of A-list celebrities. She’s a movie star with no star power," The Daily Beast's Kevin Fallon wrote back in August. "Few female celebrities are as recognizable -- or on as many magazine covers -- as Aniston. But when it comes to selling tickets at the box office, Aniston, for all her apparent popularity, seems remarkably … unpopular."
