(Newser) – Some celebrities may be worth the staggering paychecks they cash every year. But, according to Forbes' most recent list for 2013, a few actors and actresses definitely weren't. Topping "2013's Most Overpaid Actors" is none other than Adam Sandler. According to Forbes, Sandler may be able to rake in $15 million for a movie, but he doesn't always bring in the big bucks for studios: Jack & Jill cost around $80 million to produce but could only scrape together a grand total of $150 million—not a huge profit margin, considering the studio had to pay for advertising too. And That's My Boy did even worse: The film had an estimated budget of $70 million and grossed only $57 million worldwide. Following Sandler on the list: Katherine Heigl, Reese Witherspoon, Nicolas Cage, and Kevin James.
