Eddie Murphy back in the '80s was one of the biggest box-office draws in the land, but today he’s now tagged as the nation's most overpaid actor. According to Forbes, which took a look at how much Murphy was paid vs. how much his movies took in, studios brought in just $2.30 for every dollar they paid out to him over his last three films. As if the hard math itself weren't harsh enough, Forbes stated that "Murphy's career has just collapsed" amid box-office poison like "Imagine That" and "A Thousand Words." Personally, we haven't seen an Eddie Murphy movie since Norbit – that one's still burned into our memory. [Source]
