Adam Sandler topped Forbes’ list of the Most Overpaid Actors in Hollywood for the second year in a row.

Calculating the what actors were paid for their past three movies and comparing that with how much the films earned, the magazine determined that for every dollar Sandler was paid, he returned an average of just $3.20, Forbes reported.

The Top 10 overpaid actors and their return on investment are:

• Adam Sandler, $3.20
• Johnny Depp, $4.10
• Ben Stiller, $4.80
• Ryan Reynolds, $4.90
• Tom Hanks, $5.20
• Will Ferrell, $6.60
• Channing Tatum, $6.70
• Denzel Washington, $6.90
• Sandra Bullock, $9
• Ben Affleck, $9.37

Sandler’s latest film, “Grown Ups 2" earned $246 million at the box office. But his two prior films, “Jack and Jill" and "That's My Boy," were flops.

The Sony hacking scandal revealed that employees were disgruntled about Sony’s loyalty to Sandler despite recent flops, Forbes said.

The actor recently reached an agreement with Netflix to produce four original films.

Twitter users reacted to the news.
