Most Overpaid Actor is.. (Drum Roll), Nicole Kidman
by Staff

Australian actress Nicole Kidman has been named as Hollywood's most overpaid star. Kidman has come top of a list of the least bankable celebrities by U.S. magazine Forbes.

The Hours star replaces her fellow Australian Russell Crowe at the top of the list.

Kidman's films are estimated to earn only $1 (54p) for every dollar the actress is paid, compared with $8 (£4.32) last year (07).

Last year's (07) The Invasion - a remake of 1956 classic Invasion of the Bodysnatchers - lost $2.68 (£1.45) for every dollar earned by Kidman, who was paid a reported $17 million (£9.19 million) to star alongside Daniel Craig.

In second place is Jennifer Garner, whose recent movies The Kingdom and Catch and Release have both underperformed at the box office.

Kidman's ex-husband Tom Cruise takes the third slot, while the rest of the top ten is rounded out by Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage, Drew Barrymore, Will Ferrell and Cate Blanchett.

Crowe, Forbes' most overpaid star of 2007, showed most improvement - jumping to 18th in the list of actors who are worth their paychecks. (c) WENN
