Will Ferrell
Funnyman Will Ferrell has been named Hollywood's Most Overpaid Star for the second year running.

When he topped the annual list last year, Ferrell was pulling in just $3.29 per dollar he took home.

Eddie Murphy was second on the new countdown - his films drew $4.45 for every dollar, although Forbes' editors ruled out animated movies and therefore did not include his hit "Shrek" films.
