(Newser) – For the second year running, Johnny Depp is Hollywood's most overpaid actor, per Forbes' annual list. Depp's last three movies (including Alice Through the Looking Glass, which totally bombed) returned just $2.80 at the box office for every $1 he was paid. The rest of the top (er, bottom?) 5:

  1. Will Smith: $5 return at the box office for every $1 he was paid.
  2. Channing Tatum: $6 return at the box office for every $1 he was paid.
  3. Will Ferrell: $6.50 return at the box office for every $1 he was paid.
  4. George Clooney: $6.70 return at the box office for every $1 he was paid.
