Naomi WattsTimes are tough, and star salaries are skyrocketing, so if you're a studio accountant, you might want to know: Which Hollywood actresses offer the best return on investment? Along come the number-crunchers at Forbes, which has released its list of the 10 actresses who offer the most bang for the buck.

Topping the list? It's not an eight-figure-salary A-lister like Sandra Bullock or Cameron Diaz; in fact, neither figured in the top 10 at all. Nope, the actress who delivers the best return on investment is Naomi Watts, whose most recent wide-release movies, according to Forbes, have earned $44 for each $1 paid to hire the Australian star.
