HOLLYWOOD, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Comic actor Will Ferrell has topped Forbes magazine's list of Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors for a second consecutive year.

The roster was compiled based on a comparison of how much stars were paid for their movies compared to what the projects earned at the box office, the magazine said Friday.

According to the list, for every dollar Ferrell was paid, his movies made an average of $3.35 in ticket sales.

Eddie Murphy's films made $4.45 for every $1 he was paid; Denzel Washington's $5.10; Seth Rogen's $6.75; Tom Cruise's $7.20; Drew Barrymore's $7.45; Matt Damon's $8.30; Vince Vaughn's $8.35; Adam Sandler's $8.45 and Jim Carey's $8.60, Forbes said.
